Whoppi Goldberg Goes for Media Outlets Sharing her Private Info on ‘The View’


Whoopi Goldberg, the co-host of “The View,” recently expressed frustration about the media and the internet sharing private details about her life.

Goldberg spoke out against the matter, insisting that her age, birthday, and full name are splashed all over multiple websites, without her consent.

The conversation arose after the news that IMDb, the film and television database, would now allow industry professionals to choose not to disclose their age or birth name.

The agreement was reached with GLAAD and SAG-AFTRA, but Goldberg was not too thrilled with the news.

She insisted that all that information about her is already out there and that she does not like that they print such information.

She said, “I asked you not to print it, and you printed it anyway. Why am I happy that 40 years later you’ve made a change?”

Sunny Hostin pointed out that women’s ages are often flagged more than men, but Goldberg said that they do it to everyone.

She emphasized that personal information should not be printed without consent. She continued, “If I don’t ask you to print it, why are you doing it? Cause you think you have the right. This is the point that, for me, unless you can fix that, explaining to people that you don’t have the right to have this information unless I share it with you.”

Goldberg then went on to express her frustration with the situation, saying, “I’m sure this is great for other people. I’m just b*tching because I’m old.”

Joy Behar recounted an instance years ago when she was interviewed for a story with People magazine and asked them not to print her age. The magazine had told her that they would find her age anyway through the DMV.

Behar said, “It’s out of your hands. It’s absolutely sinful that they do it.”

Goldberg, like many celebrities, has been the victim of numerous privacy violations.

She believes that people should be more respectful of individuals’ privacy and that personal information should not be published without permission.

She emphasized that it is essential to understand that people do not have the right to have information about someone else’s life without their consent.

Goldberg’s position on the matter is justified, and her complaint is one that many people share.

The privacy of individuals should be respected, and their personal information should not be published without their permission. The recent agreement reached by IMDb, GLAAD, and SAG-AFTRA is a step in the right direction, but more needs to be done to protect people’s privacy.

Until then, it is up to individuals to protect their own privacy and not share more than they feel comfortable sharing.
