Whoopi Goldberg ‘Begs for Mercy’ as Tom Selleck ‘DESTROYS Her’ for Jason Aldean remarks

A popular video from the Just In celebrity news YouTube channel claimed that Tom Selleck spoke out against Goldberg for her comments on “The View.”

On Aug. 12, 2023, a purported celebrity news YouTube channel known as Just In (@JustInCeleb) published a new video that claimed “The View” co-host Whoopi Goldberg said the words, “I don’t deserve this!,” after film actor Tom Selleck made remarks about what she said in regard to country singer Jason Aldean’s music video, “Try That in a Small Town.” The title read, “3 MINUTES AGO: Whoopi Goldberg BEGS FOR MERCY As Tom Selleck DESTROYS Her.”

By Aug. 14, the original video and several reaction videos had been viewed for a total of more than 1 million times, a number that was likely to grow much larger in the days that followed.

In other words, this was no small-time rumor.

Claim – “The View” co-host Whoopi Goldberg reacted after film actor Tom Selleck chided her in his praise for country singer Jason Aldean.

Selleck did not make any public remarks about Goldberg in regard to Aldean, nor was there any evidence that he had voiced support for the country singer. Further, Goldberg never reacted to Selleck by saying, “I don’t deserve this!,” despite the quote being featured in the video’s thumbnail image.

In other words, the thousands of internet commenters who believed the primary claim to be true had fallen for a video that presented satire, albeit with an added falsehood.

That falsehood: Goldberg‘s face and name didn’t appear in the satirical article about Selleck and Aldean. She was an addition to the story by the video’s creators.

According to a Facebook page that bears the Just In (@JustInCeleb) name and logo and appeared to be affiliated with the YouTube channel, its online presence is in fact managed by 11 page managers located in Indonesia. The attempt to contact the people who run the channel is unsuccessful.
