In late 2003, O'Donnell entered into a legal battle with the publishers of Rosie magazine. They claimed that, by removing herself from the magazine's publication, she was in breach of contract.


The trial received considerable press coverage. O'Donnell would often give brief press interviews outside of the courtroom responding to various allegations. Of note was a former magazine colleague and breast cancer survivor who testified that O'Donnell said to her on the phone that "people who lie die of cancer".[5] Ultimately, the judge ruled against both sides and dismissed the case.

Controversies

Gun control controversy

O'Donnell is an outspoken supporter of gun control and a major figure in the Million Mom March. During the April 19, 1999, broadcast of her talk show, she stated, "You are not allowed to own a gun, and if you do own a gun, I think you should go to prison". O'Donnell has since regretted making the remarks and has attempted to reconcile her stance by remarking, "I don't personally own a gun."[citation needed] In 1999, O'Donnell interviewed actor Tom Selleck, who was promoting a film.[10] During the promotional interview, O'Donnell confronted him about his involvement with the NRA.[11] According to Selleck, the two had agreed not to discuss the topic prior to his appearance on the show. O'Donnell maintains that Selleck and his publicist had been informed that the topic would be discussed. However, she did subsequently say on her show that the interview did not go as she hoped it would. It has been suggested that this article or section be merged into Gun politics. ...

Also in May 1999, Bernadette Peters and the rest of the cast from Annie Get Your Gun was to appear for taping and perform the song "Anything You Can Do". O'Donnell insisted that the line "I can shoot a partridge with a single cartridge" be removed from the song. Peters refused, and the cast sang a different song without her. Later in 1999, O'Donnell discontinued her contract with Kmart as their spokeswoman. However, Kmart employees had told the New York Daily News that it was Kmart who terminated the agreement with O'Donnell, which both Kmart and O'Donnell denied publicly.[12] May 1999 : January - February - March - April - May - June - July - August - September - October - November - December May 2 - Norman J.

In May 2000, O'Donnell's bodyguard applied for a concealed firearm permit in Connecticut. At the time, O'Donnell claimed that it was not she who requested the carry permit, but Kroll, the security firm through which he was hired. Numerous parents of children who attended the same school as O'Donnell's children expressed their concern about the possibility of O'Donnell's bodyguard being armed while on school grounds.[13][14] In the United States, carrying concealed weapon (CCW, also known as concealed carry) is the privilege or right for private citizens to carry a handgun or other weapon in public in a concealed manner, either on the person or in close proximity to the person. ...

Accusations of Anti-Catholicism

The neutrality of this article or section is disputed.
Please see the discussion on the talk page.

Ever since O’Donnell joined The View in September, the show has gotten out of control. On four occasions between September and the end of December, she has lashed out at the Catholic Church. Ditto for Joy Behar. Their relentless and profoundly ignorant attacks on the Catholic Church and its teachings would never be tolerated by the show’s co-owner, Barbara Walters, if it were Judaism or Islam that was under attack. But when it comes to Catholicism, she gives these two ‘raised’ Catholics all the time they want to vent their adolescent anger.[16] Joy Behar (christened Josephina Victoria Occhiuto) was born on October 7, 1943 in Brooklyn, New York. ... Barbara Jill Walters[1] (born September 25, 1929- [2]) is an American journalist and media personality who has been a regular fixture on morning television shows (Today and The View), evening news magazine (20/20), and on The ABC Evening News, as the first female evening news anchor. ...

Donohue has complained that O'Donnell has now made anti-Catholic statements on eight occasions.[17]

Clay Aiken / Kelly Ripa controversy

On November 20, 2006, O'Donnell commented on Live with Regis and Kelly co-host Kelly Ripa's actions during a taping of her show. Guest co-host Clay Aiken put his hand over Ripa's mouth, as if to stop her from talking, while she was conducting an interview. Seeing that Ripa didn't appreciate his action, he said, "Oh, I'm in trouble." Ripa responded, "No, I just don't know where that hand's been, honey." In response, O'Donnell said "to me that was a homophobic remark. If that was a straight man...if that was a guy that she didn't question his sexuality, she would have said a different thing". Within minutes, Ripa was on the phone, responding to O'Donnell's comments by saying it was "cold and flu season" and Aiken had been shaking hands with audience members before the show. Both O'Donnell and Ripa have moved on from the incident and Aiken, who has declined to publicly discuss his sexuality, did not comment.

"Ching-Chong" controversy

On December 5, 2006, O'Donnell made a comment in reference to the publicity a November 29, 2006 appearance on The View by Danny DeVito had garnered. O'Donnell indicated that she was amazed that the controversy had become such a prevailing topic,[19] and joked that it was being talked about as far away as China. "You know, you can imagine in China it's like, 'Ching-chong, ching-chong. Danny DeVito. Ching-chong, ching-chong-chong. Drunk. The View.

The remarks sparked considerable media backlash, as O'Donnell's comments were interpreted as a "mockery of the Chinese language."[21] The offended groups further noted that O'Donnell is herself indignant against comments that "she has perceived ... as being negative against a particular community,"[22] a reference to her stance against any kind of homophobic taunting or jokes.[23] Chinese (written) language (pinyin: zhōngw n) written in Chinese characters The Chinese language (汉语/漢語, 华语/華語, or 中文; Pinyin: H nyǔ, Hu yǔ, or Zhōngw n) is a member of the Sino-Tibetan family of languages. ...


O'Donnell's initial response via her publicist was, "She's a comedian in addition to being a talk show co-host. I certainly hope that one day they will be able to grasp her humor."[24]


On December 14, 2006 O'Donnell said on The View, "To anyone who was offended at my Chinese, Asian, pseudo-Japanese, sounded a little Yiddish accent that I was doing, you know, it was never [my] intent to mock, and I'm sorry for those who felt hurt or were teased on the playground." However, she followed up on that apology by saying, "But I'm also gonna give you a fair warning that there's a good chance I'll do something like that again, probably in the next week — not on purpose. Only 'cause it's how my brain works.""[25][26] The groups who had spoken out against O'Donnell's comments on December 5 were not satisfied with O'Donnell's response.[27] December 14 is the 348th day of the year (349th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...

2007 Iranian seizure of British Royal Navy personnel

On the March 26, 2007, edition of The View, O'Donnell discussed the Iranian seizure of British Royal Navy personnel. She implied that the incident may be a hoax to provoke a war with Iran, stating:[32] March 26 is the 85th day of the year in the Gregorian calendar (86th in leap years). ... 2007 (MMVII) is the current year, a common year starting on Monday of the Gregorian calendar and the CE era. ...

Anti-military bias

On May 1, 2007 during a segment of The View, Rosie, prompted by Ricki Lake explained that some members of the armed forces joined because they were fleeing poverty, adding that there are an increasing number of convicted felons who currently serve in the US military.[7] When challenged by her co-host Rosie added she "loved the military" and wanted to see them back home. Critics quickly responded to Rosie's statements and criticized her statements as being anti-military.[35][this source's reliability may need verification] Ricki Pamela Lake (born September 21, 1968) is an American actress and tabloid talk show host, best known for her long-running Ricki Lake talk show and starring in the film Hairspray. ...


On May 17, 2007, Rosie rhetorically asked, "655,000 Iraqi civilians dead. Who are the terrorists?" She further explained, "If you were in Iraq and another country, the United States, the richest in the world, invaded your country and killed 655,000 of your citizens, what would you think?".


Conspiracy theories

On the same airdate as her remarks about the captured British troops, O'Donnell said that 7 World Trade Center had been imploded, in line with 9/11 conspiracy theories. "It is impossible for a building to fall the way it fell without explosives being involved,"[36][37] When asked by a co-presenter who she thought was responsible, she commented that she had no idea, but argued in a blog entry that the building was blown up to destroy evidence of the corporate financial scandals at Enron and WorldCom.[37] O'Donnell said:[38] 7 World Trade Center is the name of two buildings in New York City: the first opened in 1987 and was destroyed on September 11, 2001; its replacement, the first World Trade Center address to be rebuilt, was finished in 2006. ...

I do believe that it's the first time in history that fire has ever melted steel. I do believe that it defies physics that World Trade Center tower 7 — building 7, which collapsed in on itself — it is impossible for a building to fall the way it fell without explosives being involved. World Trade Center 7. World Trade Center 1 and 2 got hit by planes — 7, miraculously, the first time in history, steel was melted by fire. It is physically impossible. To say that we don’t know that it imploded, that it was an implosion and a demolition, is beyond ignorant. Look at the films, get a physics expert here [on the show] from Yale, from Harvard, pick the school — [the collapse] defies reason.

Her comments were cheered by some of the studio audience. Talk show host Bill O'Reilly implied that "ABC should do something",[39][40]but stopped short of calling for her firing. O'Donnell responded to O'Reilly's criticism on her blog, claiming that "...he edited my statements to make it seem as he wanted".[41] Physics (Greek: (phúsis), nature and (phusiké), knowledge of nature) is the science concerned with the discovery and characterization of universal laws which govern matter, energy, space, and time. ...

On March 30, 2007, Popular Mechanics magazine posted a point-by-point response to O'Donnell's claims on its website, which included a scientific correction to O'Donnell's statement about steel and fire: Tower 7 housed the city's emergency command center, so there were a number of fuel tanks located throughout the building—including two 6000-gallon tanks in the basement that fed some generators in the building by pressurized lines. The working hypothesis is that this pressurized line was supplying fuel to the fire for a long period of time. Steel melts at about 2,750 degrees Fahrenheit—but it loses strength at temperatures as low as 400 F. When temperatures break 1000 degrees Fahrenheit, steel loses nearly 50 percent of its strength. It is unknown what temperatures were reached inside WTC7, but fires in the building raged for seven hours before the collapse.[44] O'Donnell responded to the Popular Mechanics article on her blog, stating, "I still believe explosives were used to bring down wtc7".[45] March 30 is the 89th day of the year in the Gregorian calendar (90th in leap years). ... 2007 (MMVII) is the current year, a common year starting on Monday of the Gregorian calendar and the CE era. ...
