Whoopi Goldberg Gets Heated, Makes Obscene Gesture (VIDEO)

Whoopi Goldberg had one piece of advice to share on Monday's episode of "The View": don't travel with your family.

During the show's Hot Topics segment, Goldberg shared that she experienced an extended moment of panic while on vacation with her family. Two of her granddaughters wandered off without informing her of their whereabouts.

For twenty long minutes, Goldberg said she could not find her granddaughters. As Goldberg panicked, a group she not-so-fondly referred to as "the peanut gallery" kept nagging her for an autograph.

Goldberg said she tried to be kind and keep her cool, but was eventually pushed over her limit. Goldberg said that one member of the "peanut gallery" said something to her that just pushed her over the edge.

Goldberg turned to the man and seemingly told him off. "I said something dirty and nasty and ugly and foul," Goldberg said, "because I was outraged...he sees we're in a panic." Goldberg said the man felt terrible because he didn't realize she was looking for her grandchildren and profusely apologized. Goldberg also apologized for acting out of character. Goldberg's granddaughters, who went to get pizza, returned safe and sound.

As Goldberg turned to leave, she spotted a man filming the entire incident on his iPhone. "What pissed me off more than anything is with...all the panic that was happening, not once did that guy put the phone down and ask, 'Can I help?'"

Speaking directly to the man with the iPhone, Goldberg said, "So now I guess you may make a couple bucks off of it from TMZ but because you did it—" Goldberg offered him a chin flick in addition to any profits he may receive.
