THE View fans were left stunned as host Whoopi Goldberg halted the show.
The Ghost actress, 66, abruptly stopped the daytime series from heading for a commercial break in unexpected scenes.
As the ABC talk show approached 20 minutes in, it was time for the scheduled adverts.
Yet when co-presenter Sara Haines, 44, was tasked with reading a legal announcement, Whoopi "clapped back."
Fans – many of whom have called for the talk show host to be fired – were quick to note her reaction which caused a delay to the commercials.
In response to the note she branded a star a "liar" – much to the shock of viewers at home.

Sara had to fill in as The View's “knock-off lawyer” to read a few legal notes to viewers due to Sunny Hostin's absence from the show.
It was a tricky show for Whoopi, who was also forced to apologize to co-star Sara later on.
Halfway through the episode, Charlamagne tha God appeared as a guest, but only Whoopi and Joy Behar got the chance to speak with him for the first part of his segment.
The trio got into a deep-dive conversation about politics, and the moderator went over time with her comments, pushing back Sara’s time.
Though she had a question she was scripted to ask Charlamagne during the first part of his interview, there wasn’t enough time and her moment was delayed.
Realizing what happened, Whoopi reached a hand out to Sara and apologized: “I’m sorry, baby, it’s your turn.”
Knowing she doesn’t really have enough time now to ask the guest all that she wants to ask him, Sara just assured Whoopi: “No, no, no! I think– I can get it when we come back.”
Whoopi was also accused of giving her co-stars "dirty looks" during the hectic episode.
Recently, fans have criticized Whoopi for several blunders, leading to some of them to call for her firing.
The screen star has had a rough last couple of weeks as the show's moderator which as included forgetting names and projects when announcing them.
Back in May, Whoopi was mocked for mispronouncing the name of the iconic Parisian museum, The Louvre.
Whoopi has also done everything from cut-off Joy mid-conversation, trip over her words, shade famous singer Lizzo, and even messed up her introduction of US Senator Raphael Warnock.
