The women of “The View” tackled Lena Dunham‘s latest social media trouble, in which the “Girls” creator accused Twitter trolls of “verbal violence” in their responses to a half-naked photo she posted. The ABC daytime gang was torn a bit on where to place the blame.
“The minute you put yourself out there, in somebody’s underwear … you can’t be surprised,” moderator Whoopi Goldberg suggested. “You know what’s on Twitter.”
“At the same time, people on Twitter need to keep their mouths respectful,” Raven-Symone countered, “because they come hard at people.”
The most polarizing words came from newcomer Candace Cameron Bure, who is splitting time seated at the talk show’s desk and on set filming Netflix’s “Fuller House.”
“I’ve never been more verbally abused in my life than on Twitter, and specifically in the last few months, having come on this show,” the conservative Cameron Bure said, “a lot of people don’t agree with me — that’s fine, don’t agree with me.”
“But you don’t have to verbally abuse me and rape me,” she continued. “That’s what they do to me on Twitter.”
The conversation continued with co-host Paula Faris slamming certain Twitter users for anonymity, and Goldberg attempting to tie up the segment with some confusing summation.
