Whoopi Goldberg Stops The View to Scold an Audience Member – Watch

During Tuesday's episode of the ABC gabfest, moderator Whoopi Goldberg interrupted Hot Topics to chastise an audience member who

rather than watching the show being produced in front of his eyes, took out his phone and began recording. (Maybe he forgot to set the DVR?)

During a conversation about former President Donald Trump, notably the news that the bond in his civil fraud case had been cut to $175 million, Goldberg clocked him.

"Hello, sir..." I have to stop you with the camera because I can see you," she added, rising from her seat and walking towards him. "

Goldberg's handling of the situation drew plaudits. The man in question was never shown on television.

Goldberg has been obliged to address an audience member's cell phone before. Last June, an alert from somewhere in the studio audience brought Hot Topics to a halt.

Goldberg, Hostin, Joy Behar, Sara Haines, and Alyssa Farah Griffin all noticed the interruption and paused their conversation. 

However, Goldberg immediately recovered and even quipped that the notice served as an impromptu reminder for Hostin to read a legal memo before going to commercial.
