LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: Viewers of 'The View' expressed dissatisfaction as the show only allowed renowned actor Morgan Freeman to speak for six and a half minutes before abruptly ending his interview.

The 86-year-old star appeared on the program to discuss his Netflix documentary series 'Life on Our Planet'.



 

Morgan Freeman talks about 'Life on Our Planet'

He began by saying, "I am one of those people who is very, very interested in this subject — life on the planet. You understand that today life on the planet is in a little bit of trouble, and we're the cause of it. There have been — if I remember correctly — six extinction level events on the planet since life began. Six times. Large, large portions of life — we're talking just life God destroyed. We're headed for another one. Scientists have said if we don't hurry up and change our ways, there's going to be a cataclysmic event and wipe many of us off the face of this earth. It's true," as reported by Okmagazine.

He added, "You look back and this series does that. How far back does life exist on this planet and why does it still exist? It is because life is tenacious, life — we're not talking about human beings here, we're talking about the planet. She'll stay."

Whoopi Goldberg said, "I had a question, but we've run out of time. Listen, this is extraordinary, this documentary. Please keep making all the documentaries that your fingerprints are on. We thank you for coming — you're always welcome at this table."

Morgan Freeman's fans says, 'six minutes is not nearly long enough'

Naturally, fans were incensed that Freeman did not get more time to speak. One of the user wrote on YouTube, "Morgan Freeman is more entertaining in 6 minutes than Whoopi in 10 years."

A different user wrote, "How do you cut off a legend? He'll let you know when he's done. What a smart, intelligent, lovely individual."

Another used chimed, "Yall nead to invite this legend back ASAP. Six minutes is not nearly long enough. He deserves at least half an episode."

Other user penned, "How does this legend only get 6 minutes? Seriously? Wow! I’m so confused. He’s just getting started." While another said, "6 Minutes ain't [going to] be ENOUGH... FOR THE ALMIGHTY MORGAN FREEMAN!!!"
