Whoopi Goldberg interrupts Tyler Perry's emotional moment during interview with shady remark
Tyler Perry's emotional tribute to his late mother on "The View" was nearly derailed by co-host Whoopi Goldberg.
Tyler Perry had an emotional moment on "The View" while honoring his late mother, Willie Maxine Perry, almost derailed by co-host Whoopi Goldberg. It has been 14 years since Perry lost his mother, and to commemorate her life, he titled his new movie, "Maxine's Baby: The Tyler Perry Story," after her. During the promotion of the documentary, he appeared on the Emmy-winning talk show to share her story.
The women of "The View" all previewed the documentary, including co-host Sara Haines, who got emotional as she expressed how touched she was by the film. Before she could ask her question, Perry stopped her, expressing gratitude that she had met his mother. The emotional moment was briefly interrupted by Goldberg's remarks, which some viewers found inappropriate and poorly timed.
Despite the interruption, Perry remained emotional, explaining the pain and struggles his mother endured throughout her life. He expressed how special she was to him and how the documentary introduced her to the world. Throughout the interview, Goldberg thanked Perry for creating space for Black actors in Hollywood and for "seeing" her and other "viable working" actors when no one else did.
"Maxine's Baby: The Tyler Perry Story," directed by Gelila Bekele and Armani Ortiz, is set to debut on Amazon Prime on Nov. 17. For more news and updates, sign up for ATLANTA BLACK STAR'S free daily newsletters.
