An unidentified co-host on “The View” apparently ripped a loud fart on national television but the culprit refused to come clean and accept responsibility.
As you can see and hear in the videos below, the co-hosts were discussing the classified documents found at former Vice President Mike Pence’s home.
During the conversation, a loud fart ripped through the studio and stunned the co-hosts into silence.
Joy Behar, Sunny Hostin, and Alyssa Farah Griffin were going back and forth when what appears to be two farts erupted.
The first one was faint but the second was loud enough that even Eric Swalwell could hear it.
Sara Haines looked down and said “oops” seeming to notice some kind of liquid that had been spilled on the table when an unmistakable sound of breaking wind cut through the studio and silenced the co-hosts.
Alyssa Farah Griffin started to laugh, Joy Behar shot a glance toward Whoopi and Sara as if to ask who did it.
Griffin then recovers and says something about the spill to change the subject.
This is not the first time the hosts broke wind on live television.
According to Yahoo:
“The show has a small history with cutting the cheese.
“Whoopi Goldberg ripped one in 2014, prompting colleague Rosie O’Donnell to say, ‘You know those breakfast burritos, they kill ya!’
“In 2011 Goldberg passed gas during an interview with Claire Danes and excused herself, though a spokesperson later claimed it was a joke.
But, according to The Daily Mail, Whoopi denied the 2014 incident:
In 2014 a similar situation to Wednesday’s flatulent sound unfolded and was later dubbed ‘fart-gate’ by the internet.
Goldberg insisted after the fact she was not responsible for the sound which broke out in the middle of a discussion the day before.
‘There was a sound effect that we had never heard before,’ the comedian explained.
‘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,’ the EGOT winner said.
