'View' Stars Fight with Bill O'Reilly ... Storm Off Set

10/14/2010 1:07 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

In a fit of rage, Whoopi Goldberg and Joy Behar angrily charged off the set of "The View" this morning in the middle of a screaming match with Bill O'Reilly over the mosque near Ground Zero ... and moments later Barbara Walters railed on the women for being unprofessional.



Tempers flared on both sides as O'Reilly argued that the mosque has no place near the World Trade Center site because "Muslims killed us on 9/11."

Just as the women stormed off stage -- a rattled Walters proclaimed, "You have just seen what should not happen ... we should be able to have discussions without washing our hands and screaming and walking off stage."

Walters continued, "I love my colleagues, but that should not have happened."

Whoopi and Joy eventually returned to the set ... though Joy did not return to her usual seat, located right next to Bill ... instead sitting on the end of the couch.

BTW -- we think both shows should announce the results of this poll.

Whoopi and Joy just confirmed to the world that they are spoiled, whiney brats that throw tantrums when they don't get their way. As far as I'm concerned they left with their tails between their legs and embarrassed their whole party. How childish and unprofessional.

I watch O'Reilly's show and all he ever says on the matter is that although they have the "right" to build there, they should not build there (for obvious reasons). Joy Behar is always like this with O'Reilly (surly, childish) cause she is an immature, whiny liberal.

She's like this with everyone who has an opinion she doesn't like. If you aren't in lockstep with her this is how she treats you.

I can kind of understand their anger and frustration. Bill O'Reilly is an ignorant SOB. I wish they would have handled it better though.
Saying there should be no mosque because Muslims killed Americans is about as ignorant a statement as you can make. Do you know how many people of other religions have killed Americans? Shouldn't we ban them all? Or just the one that looks best when you stand on your soapbox? What about the millions of Muslims already in this country? Why don't you just go full-blown bigot and tell them to leave the country? What about the fact THERE IS ALREADY A MOSQUE 2 BLOCKS FROM THE WORLD TRADE CENTER SITE that has been there for nearly a century?
Ignorant bigots do not deserve a platform. Bill needs to retire.

I can see why they walked off stage. Saying "muslims killed us on 9/11" is very inflammatory and quite frankly racist. It's a badly worded statement on his part.

Would he say "christians attacked us" when Timmothy Mcveigh blew up the FBI building? Should we prevent churches being built because they were christian?

This is typical right wing rhetoric ...

King of TMZ    

70% of Americans think that Muslims killed us on 9/11
& 100% of those Americans are Stupid.

They shouldn't have stormed off the stage but I can't blame them the guy is a royal retard with no point of circular reasoning with him.

Democracy is when the 70% crushes the 30%
Freedom is when only Christians get their way.

Yeah God Bless America fake land of the Slaves & the Retards.

They should have more self-control as professionals. That is what happens when you let differences in political opinion get to you. It may get a lot heated in a tv debate. I've seen it on CNN and FOX but it doesn't get into a screaming match and the other people walk off.

Joy and Whoopi both should be fired over that. Extremely unprofessional, churlish behavior on their parts.
