Joy Behar Gets Furious With Fellow Hosts Of ‘The View’ For Mocking Her Fall

The hosts of the ABC talk show “The View” got into a heated discussion after talking about an incident where Joy Behar fell off her chair.

The incident happened last year but it was brought to the attention of the audience, and other hosts, again after Senate Minority Leader and Kentucky Sen. Mitch McConnell suffered an episode in which he froze in the middle of his speech to reporters.

In March 2022, Joy had a fall at the start of an episode, and her co-hosts had to help her up as the live studio audience watched in surprise.

Now, 16 months later, Joy wanted to talk about the incident, but it led to a clash with Whoopi, 67, after the head panelist confessed something: “It scared us so badly.”

Behar attempted to say that her swivel chair is what caused her to fall but her co-hosts Sara Haines, Alyssa Farah Griffin, and guest host Rachel Lindsay laughed at her and mocker her for the incident.

“You act like it’s not true!” she said as her co-hosts laughed at her.

But they played the video of what happened to Sen. McConnell, which prompted Behar to address her own incident.

“I mean, that is scary, that is scary to watch,” Goldberg said of the McConnell video.


“He’s not well. He keeps falling too,” Behar said. “Remember when I fell on stage?”

“I do! I wasn’t even going to bring it up,” Goldberg said, which led Behar to say, “I don’t care.”

“Because it scared us so badly,” said Goldberg.

“Why? My tush missed the seat! That’s all. I was trying and the thing swung and I went down,” said Behar.

Below is the recent segment where Behar didn’t like her co-hosts making light of the situation:

The clip below is from 2022 when Behar accidentally slipped out of her chair:

But the hosts continued to mock her.

“No, that wasn’t all. Listen, you didn’t see what we saw,” Goldberg said.

“What did you see?” asked Behar.

“We saw you trying to figure out how to not fall onto the floor and that was scary because we didn’t know whether to catch you and annoy you because we’re touching you…” Goldberg replied.

That led Behar to interrupt: “The chair was moving! It was like a ride at Coney Island!”

Goldberg then mocked her, “Uh-huh. No, the chair was moving…” as the rest of the panelists laughed.

“It was! It was swirling! That’s why we have these chairs. You act like it’s not true. These are new chairs!” Behar insisted.


Looking somewhat frustrated with the back-and-forth, Goldberg then said, “Okay. They’re not new to my behind because my behind doesn’t fit in this chair as I’ve mentioned many times!

“The other one, my butt fit on, but it was not good for you. So we give what we can,” she added before going to a commercial break.

McConnell was in the middle of speaking to reporters last week when he suddenly stopped talking and stared and his eyes rolled back.

Speculation from some included possible seizure or stroke, but the Senator said he is fine around 12 minutes after the incident.

“Hey Mitch, anything else you want to say? Or should we just go back to your office? Do you want to say anything else to the press?” Republican Sen. John Barrasso of Wyoming said as he grabbed on to Sen. McConnell.

CNN reported:

McConnell, asked by CNN what happened and if it is related to his fall earlier this year, said “No, I’m fine,” and then moved on to other reporters.

A McConnell aide said that the senator “felt light headed and stepped away for a moment.”

“He came back to handle Q and A, which as everyone observed was sharp,” the aide said.

McConnell, 81, has faced questions over his health after suffering a concussion and broken ribs from a fall he endured earlier this year. He was hospitalized and forced to go to rehab for several weeks before returning to the Senate in the spring.
