Whoopi Goldberg, who recently demanded an ‘apology’ from the Royal Family, slammed Alicia Silverstone for allowing her ’11-year-old son to sleep in her bed’. 

The 66-year-old appeared on The View and commented on the Clueless actress and her ‘approach to motherhood’.

Goldberg said: “I don’t know any 11-year-old that wants to sleep with me. I don’t have teenagers… I have little kids. I have an eight-year-old and she’ll come hang out…”

Lindsey Granger pitched in, commenting: “I don’t know Alicia Silverstone, but I feel like this is a little clueless.”

Joy Behar added: “I don’t think there’s anything wrong with it. Europeans do it.”

In agreement, co-host Sunny Hostin said: “I’m totally with you, Joy.”

At this point, Goldberg interjected: “Most kids of a certain age don’t want to sleep with you.”

The debate all started when Silverstone, who shares her son, Bear, with ex-husband Christopher Jarecki, appeared on the Ellen Fisher Podcast on July 19 and opened up about being a parent.

She said: “I’m a natural mama, and I’m a loving mama.

“I believe in love and I believe in nature… and our society is scared of nature and scared of love.”

Later on in the podcast, the 45-year-old added: “Bear and I still sleep together.

“I’ll be in trouble for saying that, but I don’t really care.”

She continued: “If you were in any kind of wild setting where there are wild animals if you put your baby over there your baby is going to get eaten.

“So it’s not ideal for the baby to be over there.”
