Whoopi Goldberg slammed for looking 'bored' of Gwyneth Paltrow's court battle on The View

Whoopi Goldberg upset fans of The View by appearing to be bored on air on Monday - and fans took to social media to voice their discontent.

The popular talk show was looking at clips from Gwyneth Paltrow's on-going court case regarding a ski collision in 2016.

The actress is being sued by a retired optometrist following the incident in Deer Valley Resort in Park City, Utah.

Terry Sanderson is seeking damages of $300,000 (£246,000) for "a brain injury, four broken ribs and other serious injuries" in the civil lawsuit.

Ms Paltrow, meanwhile, has filed a counterclaim, in which she is seeking legal fees and damages of $1 (82p).

The clip in question showed the attorney get a wry smile from the actress after finishing answering his question.

He responded: "Small but mighty," before he followed it up with an apparent dig, adding: "Actually, you're not that small."

As the panellists of The View returned to the screen, it was Whoopi's dry look that got people talking.

The actress, 67, was seen resting her head on her hand in a bored manner while the rest of the panellists laughed around her.

Alyssa Farah Griffin, 33, said the moment in question from the case made her feel "so uncomfortable," while they described the attorney as "fan girling".

Fans watching from home meanwhile took to Twitter to call out Whoopi's behaviour.

One user wrote: "Oh my goodness Whoopi is bored with this Paltrow comedy!#TheView."

Another added: "When she’s bored she shows it. I was bored with Paltrow also!#TheView."

And a third wrote: "Of course Whoopi isn't interested in the topic! #TheView."

It's the latest in a long line of comments about the actress' attitude and behaviour on the talk show of late.

Earlier this month she was forced to apologise after she used an offensive ethnic slur on air.

She told viewers she should have "thought about" what she said first after the hosts discussed Donald Trump and his alleged connection to adult film star Stormy Daniels.

Whoopi hit out at Trump's supporters during the segment and used an offensive slang term for the word "cheated".

She said: "The people who still believe that he got gy**ed somehow in the election, will still believe that he cared enough about his wife to pay that money from his personal thing."

The term used is said to be derogatory toward people of Romani heritage.
