Joy Behar apparently forgot how chairs work and introduced her face to the stage floor in spectacular fashion during a recent shooting of “The View”.
In video footage from the live daytime show, the 79-year-old co-host was actually seen falling face-first before shifting to her side, before her similarly ancient fellow co-hosts hobbled over to help her to her feet.
“Come on just stop, just stand,” laughed Whoopi Goldberg.
“Twenty-five years that has never happened to me,” Behar said, adding, “Who do I sue?”

While Behar is actually stated to be simply great after her stumble, the problem amassed mixed reactions on social media, mostly along party lines.
I’m never happy to see anyone potentially hurt themselves. But here’s what I noticed:
The audience: Forced to mask up.
The crew: Forced to mask up.
The “stars”? No masks.
Nice caste system going on there. Has nothing to do with “science”.

Aw, I am no fan of hers, but let’s not mock her for falling. It’s so beneath us.

Karma is indeed a B*tch. 🤣

I shouldn’t laugh at this but I can’t help it

Whoopi always with the most well thought out observations… “these chairs move”

Behar is familiar with making headlines, for better or for worse. Only recently, she was castigated for complaining that Russia’s attack on Ukraine may disrupt her plan to holiday in Italy. The previous week, Behar was actually caught maskless in public after declaring she’d continue wearing her face-diaper consistently, regardless of whether the CDC revises their ‘guidance‘. So yes… in this case go ahead and get a cheap laugh.
