'6 Minutes ain't enough': 'The View' gets mercilessly trolled for cutting short Morgan Freeman interview
'Morgan Freeman is more entertaining in 6 minutes than Whoopi in 10 years,' read one scathing tweet
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."
