Rape Joke Incites Laughter on 'The View'

11/18/2009 3:05 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Inappropriate: Sofia Vergara joking about being raped on "The View" today.
More Inappropriate: Several members on "The View" panel LAUGHING about it!!!!!

Sofia Vergara: Click to watch
For the record -- Whoopi "rape rape" Goldberg was the only one who looked disturbed by the joke. You can hear someone on the set say, "Whoaaa!" -- but it's unclear whose mouth it came from.

Thanks to Jezebel for pointing it out.

Whoopi joked about molestation when she tried to explain her comments about "rape-rape" and the others laughed. They're a sick bunch

3. Wow, the minions at TMZ are becoming even more over-the-top, ridiculous PC police than even the racebating duo of Jackson and Sharpton. You idiots are aware that words have more than just one meaning, correct?

Rape as other meanings such as:

. an act of plunder, violent seizure, or abuse; despoliation; violation: the rape of the countryside.
. Archaic. the act of seizing and carrying off by force.
–verb (used with object)
. to plunder (a place); despoil.
. to seize, take, or carry off by force.

Therefore, Sofia was correct, and not being offensive, you goons.

ugggg...The View sucks since they won the Emmy.

Barbara- Wayyyyy too old to still be on TV (spit it out Barbara)
Of course she only comes on when she has a TV show she wants people to watch.

Elisabeth- Baby, Marriage, President, Baby, Marriage, President (repeat 100 times) that's all she knows to talk about.

Sherri- POINTLESS. (next)

Joy- It should be her and Whoopi's show.

Whoopi- It should be her and Joy's show.


The bimbo latina...so what, who cares.

When 1 in 3 women in the US are victims of sexual assault, the last thing we need are the people in the media - women, even, furthering the already serious rape culture we live in. Rape is absolutely NOT a joke. Sofia Vergara said something very inappropriate and the backlash, unfortunately, will be nowhere near what it should be (if there even is any beyond this message board). I'd expect her to suffer the way Michael Richards did when he ran his mouth in a similarly ignorant way. This is not acceptable and I hope that rape survivors everywhere raise their voices loud enough to make a difference. Shame on the women of the view for not saying something about this immediately and reprimanding her publicly on television.

In this interview she was talking about having a child early so that meant the context was about sex and when ur raped its not consentual sex so therefore DUMMY it was offensive. How about u look at the interview then make a decision, then come up with a conclusion. but ur a Republican and therefore STUPID and dont get the facts before u pass judgement. HAHAHA From a liberal

So this offends you yet you were nowhere to be found when your main hoodrat Whoopie defended the child molester a few weeks back and tried to seriously differentiate between rape and "rape-rape?"

Your hypocrisy is nearly as hilarious as your stupidity. You Neo-Nazi libs are disgusting.

I caught what she said right away. I think it was terrible--rape is NOT a joke. I also noticed that Whoopi was the only one to appear to respond negatively. Wish one of the ladies would have spoken up.
