"I told you to stop fooling with all that," Goldberg said. "This is where she’s come from and it’s your fault."

Whoopi Goldberg, who famously sounded multiple alarms over (potential) ghosts on The View set, aliens, and the invasion of Amazon's Alexa, has regrettably informed her fellow panelists on the long-running talk show that she was right about the impending robo-pocalypse all along.

Amid a live Hot Topics discussion that saw the cohosts rebuke the rise of a new AI-generated online influencer named Alba who recently landed a gig hosting a segment of Survivor in Spain, Goldberg reiterated her staunch opposition to digital entities.

"We're all going to be robots? So, the robot is going to read the legal note instead of Sunny?" Joy Behar joked at the top of the chat. "Not as good," replied Sunny Hostin, the show's legal expert.

Alyssa Farah Griffin brought the conversation back to herself, telling her on-air colleagues, "She looked pretty good. Brian [Teta, The View producer] is going to replace me with an AI-generated [cohost]."

Goldberg, who stood against Alba taking jobs from living, breathing humans from the start, pushed back against the cohosts.

“I can't believe that you guys fell for this other B.S., and you can't see anything wrong here," she said, later adding: "I told you what was coming four years ago, and I told you to stop fooling with all that, you know, talking to Siris, this is where she’s come from and it’s your fault."

The 68-year-old Oscar-winning actress has, indeed, repeatedly raised concerns about non-human life forms on The View.

Prior to confirming to worldwide audiences in March this year that aliens are among us on earth, in May 2023, Goldberg revealed that she doesn't want Amazon's in-home digital helper, Alexa, dwelling in her surroundings.

"You know she is listening. I don't want her in the house," Goldberg said. "I don't want anything that is smart enough to lock me out of my house, I don't want anything that won't let me drive my car. When you watch science fiction, it's right there. They tell you: this is the future."

The View airs weekdays at 11 a.m. ET on ABC.
