THE VIEW fans have accused Whoopi Goldberg of shading a major star with her comments during the live show.
It came after the moderator tried to do a little celebrity matchmaking on air.
On Tuesday’s episode of The View, Whoopi Goldberg, 66, and her co-hosts were joined by comic Phoebe Robinson, 37.
She joined the ladies to discuss her new ABC show, Everything’s Trash, and her recent book, Please Don't Sit on My Bed in Your Outside Clothes.
Co-host Sunny Hostin, 53, pointed out that Phoebe has dedicated her new book not only to her parents but also to actor Michael B Jordan, 35.
The Hollywood heartthrob has appeared on The View multiple times, and recently split from his long-term girlfriend Lori Harvey, 25.

Phoebe burst out laughing as she explained the reason behind her dedication: “I’m shooting my shot. I don’t know him, I’ve never met him.”
“Would you like to meet him?” asked Whoopi.
“I would like to meet him. He’s beautiful, he’s talented, of course,” replied Phoebe.
“He’s recently single,” Sunny pointed out.

‘REALLY WORTH IT’
“If he wants to take me on a date, spend money…” Phoebe suggested.
Whoopi, who is friends with the eligible bachelor, looked straight at the camera to say: “Michael, when you get a minute, give this one a call.
“But wait there’s more… because she’s actually really worth it. She’s really smart, really funny, and fabulous.
“Now Whoopi’s saying I’m worth it! I want that footage for life,” gushed Phoebe.
However, some viewers thought that Whoopi’s words were subtly disrespectful toward Michael’s ex Lori.
“Come on don't throw shade at Lori Harvey,” wrote one on Twitter. “She has a right to not have to stay with Michael.”
Another agreed: “The shade was real I thought I was the only person that caught that little nugget.”
Creed star Michael and his model girlfriend broke up last month.
With a 10-year age gap between the two, Michael was reportedly ready to settle down, while Lori wasn't.
