What did Barbara Corcoran say about Whoopi Goldberg on The View?

During a roundtable discussion, the co-hosts started talking about jeans but things got awkward once Barbara chimed in.
Whoopi questioned whether they would fit “this COVID [butt]?” and while co-hosts Sunny Hostin and Ana Navarro were quick to say they would, Barbara then stated: “And when you get finished with those jeans, and decide you don’t like them, give them to me. I’m gonna make two pairs!”
While Whoopi was left speechless, Ana jumped right in second later defending her co-host.
“Whoopi, let me just tell you something. Both Sara Haines and Jill Biden wore that dress already, on TV” she said, referring to Barbara’s colorful outfit choice, before ripping up her own question cards.
“That’s not true” Barbara hit back, trying to defend herself.
Ana added, “Donald Trump Jr. tried that on me. It didn’t work!” referring to the former president’s son’s dig at Ana’s weight after her false positive COVID test. “No no no.”
Following the show, fans were outraged on Twitter and Barbara then issued an apology to her “old friend, Whoopi,” saying she now realizes it wasn’t funny.
“I made a joke at Whoopi’s expense and I now realize it wasn’t funny,” Barbara said in her Twitter video. “For anyone who I may have offended unintentionally, I just want to say I really am very sorry.”
