When Sherri Shepherd was asked if the world was flat by Whoopi Goldberg on an infamous episode of The View, she responded: "I don't know. I never thought about it Whoopi. Is the world flat? I never thought about it. I tell you what I thought about, how I'm going to feed my child." "Well you can do both, you know," Barbara Walters responded to Sherri Shepherd; rejecting the theory that she could not be a mother and ponder whether or not the earth was flat at the same time. Later Shepherd would dismiss the whole incident as her "having a brain fart." Howard Stern would later be a guest on The View and would mock Shepherd as well for her flat earth theories: "I know what you mean Sherri. Sometimes when I walk around I feel like I could walk over the edge and fall off the face of the earth."
