Whoopi Goldberg is taking a stand at New York Fashion Week.
At the Phillip Plein show on Monday, Tiffany Trump was left sitting alone after several magazine editors moved so they wouldn’t have to be near President Donald Trump‘s daughter. Some even tweeted that they had changed seats, with former Wall Street Journal columnist Christina Binkley posting photos of the 23-year-old with empty seats beside her.
Nikki Ogunnaike, senior fashion editor at Elle, tweeted that the show started late due to chaotic seating changes, with editors at the show “fleeing” so they wouldn’t have to sit around Tiffany. In response to a similar tweet from Alyssa Vingan Klein, editor-in-chief of Fashionista.com, Ogunnaike said she was with others down the hall.
The snub became the subject of conversation on Wednesday’s episode of The View, where Goldberg defended the University of Pennsylvania graduate and offered to sit next to her at future shows. Tiffany took to Twitter and accepted Goldberg’s offer on Wednesday.
