THE VIEW was slammed by the viewers for abusing the thanksgiving and not giving food to the viewers.
The host celebrated the holiday on Wednesday’s show.
At the beginning of the show, the ladies went to their seats, where there was a lot of food on the table.
Moderator Whoopi Goldberg detailed the delicious dishes planned, including cranberry meatloaf, stuffing, stuffed mushrooms, mac & cheese bites, and mini whoopie pies.
The camera zoomed in on the hot dishes, though it soon became apparent that only those on the panel got a taste.
Whoopi informed viewers that the recipe for the food is listed on The View’s official Instagram page, which informs that viewers are not allowed to eat.
The move angered fans who thought it was inconsiderate of the host not to share the Turkey Day holiday with the studio audience.
One person expressed their frustration with one tweet: “Partners eat, of course, in front of the audience! #TheView.”
Another agreed, tweeting: “Will #TheView crew eat in front of a live studio audience … and NOT share with them?”
While the third called the behavior of the host “rude and disrespectful”.

At one point, Whoopi called out her co-star Joy Behar for eating while discussing a serious topic.
The 67-year-old opened the show by telling the audience he was looking for a breakthrough in the Chesapeake Walmart shooting, where a manager killed eight people on Tuesday.
“Don’t forget those who will not be happy and really try to be thankful because tomorrow is never promised,” he said sincerely.
“It’s a Thanksgiving show, and we want to get up and roll with it, but sometimes these shows are so hard to start…”
Whoopi then paused when a loud noise was heard.
The Sister Act star turned to Joy, 80, with a look of shock on her face, as she asked: “What are you eating?”
“We shouldn’t start yet, Joy,” said Sunny Hostin, 54, pointing to the food on the table.
Joy looked guilty and covered her mouth as she said, “I didn’t eat the food, it was Tic Tac.”
The pioneer applauded again: “You have a lot of sonics!”
“It was really hard,” said 33-year-old Alyssa Farrah Griffin.
Whoopi gestured to the studio audience and agreed, “Hear it!”
“I’m sorry,” Joy said back.
THE REIGN OF WHOOPI
Whoopi continued with her next debate for the Hot Topic episode, which erupted when she made a heated joke with the audience.
The actor first showed the video from the last speech of Dr. Anthony Fauci on the coronavirus pandemic, which happened on Tuesday.
In his speech, he reminded the crowd of the importance of vaccinations, immunizations and screenings before proceeding to the Thanksgiving gathering.
Whoopi, who recently recovered from Covid-19, doubled down on the words of the Chief Medical Advisor.
“Let me explain to you something that just came out again,” he shared.
“Not good, light… I came down with severe Covid, okay?”
She wagged her fingers and raised her voice as she continued, “You don’t want to get this. It’s not funny. You don’t like it. This will kill you!
“What’s wrong with you people?”
Joy Behar said, “Well, the reason you didn’t die is because you got empowered.”
“Yes!” Whoopi agreed.
The OG reviewer continued, “If you don’t get the power, you can die. That’s the idea.
“People are writing on Twitter or somewhere, ‘Look, they got Whoopi, and she has the vaccine.’
“Yeah, but Whoopi is sitting there. It’s a good thing he’s not in the trunk!”
The audience applauded in response.
