Whoopi Goldberg had a message for people criticizing HBO's House of the Dragon and Prime Video's The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power for their diverse casts.
As reported by Collider, Goldberg slammed these "fans" on The View, pointing out that the characters "don’t exist in the real world. You know that? There are no dragons. There are no hobbits. Are you telling me Black people can’t be fake people too? Is that what you’re telling me?" She continued, "I don’t know if there’s like a hobbit club, I don’t know if there are gonna be protests, but people! What is wrong with y’all?" She concluded by encouraging those who "have problems because there are Black hobbits" to "Get a job!" and "Go find yourself, because you are focused on the wrong stuff."
