In a recent episode of “The View,” Whoopi Goldberg shared her strong opinion about the impact of “American Idol” on society. She believed that the show began a negative trend in which people enjoy judging others. Goldberg emphasized that things spiraled out of control once the public was given the power to decide who should succeed.
Although she initially struggled to recall the show’s name, Goldberg acknowledged that her criticism had nothing to do with its current iteration on ABC. Despite her comment causing a playful exchange with the producer, Goldberg stood by her belief that “American Idol” played a role in the decline of society.
