Joy Behar screams at crew member during behind-the-scene Q&A segment on 'The View': Eye witness account
Joy Behar, one of the celebrated hosts on 'The View' revealed a more unsavory side of her personality when she disrespectfully shouted at a crew member while filming Tuesday’s episode on July 26.
The panel of hosts were scheduled to film a live segment titled Hot Topics, in which the hosts engage with the audience and have them answer questions on relevant or contentious issues as a pre-recorded clip plays. However, Behar stirred controversy when she allegedly shouted at a staff member during the segment.

A witness present on the set told The Sun, the 79-year-old television personality rudely screamed at a crew member and asked him to “Hurry Up” while the staffer was busy entertaining the crowd. The worker mocked Joy’s urgency, as the host remained serious, the source claimed.
According to the report by Sun, Joy wasn't the only host who displayed strange behavior. Before the filming of the show, the hosts had a little meet-up with the audience where they waved and greeted the excited crowd. Whoopi Goldberg, 66, who came on the stage, acknowledged the audience but ignored the cheers and claps from the audience as she took her place on stage. Luckily, Whoopi soon recovered her good mood and did wave to the crowd when a group of fans cheered her name.
For the unversed, this is the latest in a string of controversies attached to the hosts of the show. A report by Ok! claimed Behar was cast in a bad light when she referred to a conservative political group as "Nazis" on air alongwith Whoopi Goldberg. As a result of which, Turning Point USA immediately sent the show a cease and desist letter.
"Everybody, from Whoopi Goldberg to the interns had to attend. It was made clear that the show had been up in legal jeopardy and that this was unacceptable," a source spilled to Radar on the surprise meeting. "Every single host around the table is wearing an earpiece and getting verbal notes from producers and lawyers as the show goes on," the source noted. "Whoopi and Joy’s outrageous comments were flagged by lawyers right away in real-time. Yet, they continued."
But it seems like nothing can keep Joy Behar down, not even her exit from one of the most celebrated and highest-paid gigs. "I was glad to be fired," The view’s co-host for 25 years said in a new interview with TIME magazine, referring to her temporary exit from the panel back in 2013.
