Two of the media’s strongest personalities, Whoopi Goldberg and Bill O’Reilly, reunited on The O’Reilly Factor Tuesday, just more than a month after a miffed Goldberg stormed off the set of her own show, The View, in protest of O’Reilly’s comments regarding a mosque near Ground Zero.

As RadarOnline.com has previously reported, on the October 14 edition of The View, O’ Reilly called the mosque “inappropriate” and said he personally opposed it “because Muslims killed us on 9/11,” prompting an infuriated Joy Behar to storm off the set, with the mercurial Goldberg following suit.
On Tuesday, things between the media personalities remained cordial for a while, but eventually, the sparks flew.
Of The View walk-out, O’Reilly defended himself, saying, “I just left out the word ‘terrorist,’” to which Goldberg replied, “In this day and age when kids are getting their butts kicked because they’re Muslim …”
O’Reilly interrupted Goldberg to tell her that “Jews in America are far more likely to be persecuted than Muslims.”
Goldberg blew it off, finally letting loose when O’Reilly called her “Ms. Goldberg.
“What is this bulls*** about ‘Ms. Goldberg’?” she said. “Stop that, Bill — Just call me Whoopi.”
