Mother hen Barbara Walters is gonna love this!
After Bill O'Reilly made the mistake of saying "Muslims killed us on 9/11" on The View this past Thursday - Whoopi Goldberg and Joy Behar subsequently walked off the set only to return later - the show's producers have now decided to weigh in on the incident during Monday's show. (Friday's episode had been previously recorded.)
Joy Behar went on her own HLN show to defend her actions, calling Bill O'Reilly's comments "hate speech." On his show, O'Reilly says he "enjoys jousting" with the ladies of The View because he wants their audience "to hear both sides."
ABC also noted that The View's website had ten times its normal traffic due to the, er, emotional moment.
Think it's a good idea to rehash what happened? Either way, it'll make good TV!
