The TV star took to Instagram last week to share a photo of her backstage on The View, modelling a pair of heeled crocs that she had received as a gift.

The pair in question were some Balenciaga x Crocs Madame rubber mules that she had been given by the cast of Potus, the much-anticipated new Broadway show.

Fans were divided over the shoe choice, with many saying how much they liked the style, while others were concerned that Whoopi would fall over in the heels.

"Be careful now Whoopi, I don't know about that heel," one wrote, while another remarked: "Cute, but is that a heel? Good luck walking in those." A third added: "Are you sure you can walk in those?"

Whoopi has had an eventful year, which saw her being temporarily removed from the panel on the ABC talk show in February due to her remarks on the Holocaust.

The presenter issued several public apologies over her comments at the time, where she claimed that the Holocaust, which saw over six million Jews across German-occupied Europe systematically murdered, was "not about race".

In a statement posted on Twitter the same day, she said: "On today's show I said the Holocaust 'is not about race, but about man's inhumanity to man'. I should have said it is about both."

She apologized again on the show the following day, saying: "Yesterday on the show I misspoke. [The Holocaust] is indeed about race, because Hitler and the Nazis considered the Jews to be an inferior race."

She continued: "Now, words matter, and mine are no exception. I regret my comments and I stand corrected. I also stand with the Jewish people."
