Whoopi Goldberg describes American Idol as the “collapse of society” before backing off

Whoopi Goldberg slammed American Idol as a “collapse of society” before sheepishly retracting a blunder on The View Thursday.

The actress, 67, was forced to give a humiliating explanation after she located the ABC show — leading a producer to remind her The View is on the same network in a heart-wrenching exchange.

The drama began when Goldberg was interviewing the Netflix documentary Anna Nicole Smith: You Don’t Know Me, which she claimed “lived” in the star’s final days.

“You have basketball wives, you have housewives of anything, all Bravo shows, giving you the impression that you’re doing something wrong because you’re living your life,” she said.

People watch these shows because they make them feel better. I think we, as a society, like to watch things to judge people.”

“You know, I always thought the beginning of society’s downfall was, um, what’s the name of that show that I always tell you about?” — before becoming Executive Producer Brian Teta.

And Teta responded, “ABC’s American Idol?” — with Goldberg’s awkward response: “Well, it wasn’t always on ABC… Once we gave people the power to judge other people, I think we just kind of dealt with it, and it got out of hand.”

American Idol originally aired on Fox from 2002 to 2016 – before returning in 2018 on ABC.

Fans accused the show of being rigged not only when Iam won, but also when contestant Wé Ani was eliminated the previous week.

The March 12 episode was the lowest rated episode of the season, watched by only 3.3 million people.

Born in Hawaii but of Tongan and Samoan descent, Tongi was crowned winner of the hit show’s 21st season after a nationwide vote during ABC’s star-studded three-hour finale.

He performed “Don’t Let Go” by Spawnbreezie as his family was in the audience waving their hands in the air.

And some fans who were upset with the result took to social media, with one writing on Twitter: “American Idol is rigged.” Colin Staff was the best ever.

Another claimed that Iam won the sympathy of voters rather than talent, writing: “The sympathy vote reform clearly exists.”

With a third simply added: “I’m over the fake American Idol.”

Another was so upset with the outcome that they tagged host Ryan Seacrest and asked, “So Ryan thought #AmericanIdol was a singing competition?” Any reason not to win Best Singer? Curious…just ask. Thank you.’

When Wé was eliminated, fans also accused the show of rigging the results.

This offer is fraudulent. We Ani should definitely be the winner of this season,” one fan tweeted.

We Ani is the best singer on American Idol. She is this generation’s Whitney Houston. You can’t compare her to Colin or Iam. American Idol is rigged.

Tongi already has a number of connections in the music industry and had a single, ‘Dreams’, which was released in November 2020.

On the show, Tonji was mentored by Australian country star Keith Urban.

Other viewers said they were happy with Iam.

One wrote: “Congratulations to Iam Tonji Winner of American Idol 2023!”

Another said, “Iam Tonji turned American Idol into his show!”
