The View: The N Word Controversy Video: Elizabeth Hasselbeck in Tears Over Discussion


Elisabeth Hassenbeck in tears over The N word discussion on The View

“The View” has a controversial discussion over Jesse Jackson’s use of the “N” word. The View co-host, Elisabeth Hasselbeck (major drama queen) was reduced to tears Thursday after the discussion.

During “The View” segment covering Jesse Jackson’s recent use of the n-word into a hot mic, unknowingly in an interview on FOX News, Whoopi and co-host Sherri Shepard, who are both black, contested that the word has a different meaning for black people.

“It’s something that means something way different to me than it does to you,” said Shepard. “I can use it as a term of endearment.”

Shepard also said to co-host Barbara Walters: “I don’t want to hear it come out of your mouth.”

Hasselbeck contested that “We [blacks and whites] don’t live in different worlds, we live in the same world.”

Goldberg, who used the n-word repeatedly during the broadcast (it was bleeped out), said that “We don’t live in the same world. What I need you to understand is the frustration that goes along with when you say we live in the same world. It isn’t balanced.”
