Whoopi Goldberg denies farting on debate show.


Whoopi Goldberg insists she didn’t fart on ‘The View’. The 59-year-old star appeared to let rip on the US talk show on Wednesday, December 10, 2014 during a ‘Hot Topics’ debate in which singer, Ashanti was discussing whether or not she thinks people should get a flu jab but insists the audible noise that disrupted the debate was an unusual sound effect that she quickly made a joke about.
She said: ‘There was a sound effect that we had never heard before. I’m thinking, ‘Damn, that’s weird, what can I do?’ Oh, I know! I’m gonna pretend I let a little something go. As a joke.
‘Now, these folks are emailing people, running up on people saying, ‘How do you feel about the fart that Whoopi did on ‘The View’?’ It’s a joke! ‘I know you think that I don’t [make jokes] any more, I do, I make funnies.
I don’t fart on air for real!’ Whoopi was previously reported to have done the same while sitting on a sofa with ‘Homeland’ star Claire Danes and fellow host Joy Behar in 2011 and though her co-star appeared offended by a putrid pong, the actress insists that too was a joke.
On the show, she added: This is the second time I’ve covered something like this because sometimes I hear something and I think, ‘Oh, we got to do something to get attention from it,’ and so I try to move it and that’s the fastest ’cause the fart joke works [instantly] like that. ‘So everybody relax, I didn’t fart on air, it was a joke.’
The mysterious farting incident this week happened after a camera was firmly focused on Ashanti when a sudden explosion of air could be heard. Whoopi then sat in her seat looking sheepish and embarrassingly said: ‘Excuse me! Oooh, oooh.’ The panel and studio audience erupted into a gale of laughter and Whoopi then stood up, put her hand in the air and said: ‘Hold on for a minute.’…
