Barbara Corcoran Apologizes For Body Shaming Remark To Whoopi Goldberg


Her dreadful joke was made during the current week's portion of The View.

Everything began during Whoopi Goldberg and Ana Navarro’s appearance on Thursday’s scene of “The View”.

Corcoran discussed Emma Grede, the originator and CEO of denim brand Good American who is set to be the principal Black, female visitor shark on Shark Tank with the show’s co-hosts Sara Haines, Joy Behar, and Sunny Hostin.

They were all going wild over a “great” pair of jeans to which Goldberg inquired, “Well, I have to try them,” joking, “Will they fit this COVID [butt]?”

After Hostin and Navarro assured the jeans would fit her, she added, “OK, just thought I would ask… OK, if they fit three, no, two COVID butts, we’ll be fine.” However, Corcoran chimes in and drops the offensive joke.

“When you get finished with those jeans, and decide you don’t like them, give them to me. I’m gonna make two pairs,” the Shark Tank star said.

Goldberg appeared unamused and speechless. Navarro promptly went to her co-host’s defense by mocking Corcoran’s floral dress.

“Whoopi, let me just tell you something. Both Sara Haines and Jill Biden wore that dress already, on TV,” Navarro quipped.

After the specific clip went viral on social media, Corcoran immediately took to Twitter on Thursday afternoon to say sorry.

“I just came back from The View and saw my old friend Whoopi,” the entrepreneur began. “She has a phenomenal sense of humor, and I’ve known Whoopi for years,” she said in her apology video.

She added, “I made a joke at Whoopi’s expense, which I now realize wasn’t funny. For anyone who I may have offended unintentionally, I just wanted to say I really am very sorry.”

Goldberg replied to the apology video referring to her as a long time friend saying that she knows her humor and aware that she was kidding. Corcoran then quoted the reply with, “You’re terrific Whoopi! And as always, a class act. Thank you”

#WhatNotToSayToAWoman What Barbara Corcoran said to Whoopi Goldberg on today’s episode of #TheView!

What the hell made Barbara Corcoran think she could say that shit about anyone muchless our daytime Queen Whoopi!

We live in a different time. I don’t think Barbara Corcoran spoke from a hurtful place to Whoopi Goldberg 😞

I can’t believe a saltine like Barbara Corcoran disrespected Whoopi in her own home on #TheView. Fat shaming the EGOT winner for what reason? Loved how Ana checked her with a quickness.

Barbara Corcoran R-E-A-L-L-Y came for Whoopi Goldberg on her OWN show and Ana Navarro was like NOT TODAY!!!!! It's the audacity for me. @WhoopiGoldberg is an ICON! 👖👖 #TheView

What people say in the light you know they're worse in the dark. Barbara Corcoran felt so comfortable fat-shaming Whoopi in front of millions of people. Imagine what she says when she's around her family and friends.🥴

Ana Navarro was NOT having it when Barbara Corcoran tried to fat-shame Whoopi! #TheView

Are we gonna have to add Barbara Corcoran to the list of people who destroyed their careers in one joke? Hope Barb’s PR team is on it and she backstage kissing some feet about to put out a joint statement with Whoopi at her side.
