Nothing was said about Lisa Marie’s tragic death.
Taking to Twitter, one person said: “I’m assuming that #TheView is live today. If so, I’m gonna be pretty upset if they don’t acknowledge the life and sudden death of #LisaMariePresley…”
The same person later added once the show had finished: “…and they never did. If #WhoopiGoldberg was there she would’ve certainly made sure to acknowledge her and say a few kind words.
“I mean she was only 54 & #Elvis’ ONLY child. How insulting that there was no mention. Rest in peace Lisa.”
Someone else queried: “I was late tuning in. Did #TheView say anything about Lisa Marie Presley?”
Another viewer fumed: “No mention of the death of Lisa Marie ! This show is not as up to date as Canadian broadcasts!”
A different person tweeted: “@TheView It is tragic that Lisa Marie Presley has died at the age of 54. The View should have acknowledged it.”
Someone else added: “Nothing about Lisa Marie Presley, I am surprised and disappointed!”
Another viewer said: “BTW anyone wondering why Lisa Marie’s death was not addressed, there could be 2 reasons, either this was taped yesterday, or Whoopi wanted them to wait till Monday.”
Tagging hosts Joy Behar and Sunny Hostin, someone else posted: “@TheView @JoyVBehar @sunny nothing about Lisa Marie? Really.”
She said: “It is with a heavy heart that I must share the devastating news that my beautiful daughter Lisa Marie has left us.”
The actress went on: “She was the most passionate, strong, and loving woman I have ever known. We ask for privacy as we try to deal with this profound loss.
“Thank you for your love and prayers. At this time there will be no further comment.”
Celebs and fans alike flocked to social media to pay tribute to Lisa Marie.
Pop star Pink said the world had “lost a gem” following the news of Lisa Marie’s death.
“Oh, this one hurts my heart. Lisa Marie, you were one of a kind,” she said in a post on Instagram.
“Funny as s**t, smart as a whip, sensitive, talented, witty, mean, loving, generous, judgmental but always right, loyal, and you adored your children.
“My heart breaks for you and your beautiful family and your children. The world lost a rare gem today. May your soul rest in peace, friend.”
John Travolta said his “heart goes out” to the family of Lisa Marie Presley, following the news of her death.
Sharing a picture of her on Instagram, he wrote: “Lisa baby girl, I’m so sorry.
“I’ll miss you but I know I’ll see you again. My love and heart goes out to Riley, Priscilla, Harper and Finley.”
Songwriter Diane Warren said: “Oh no. This is such horrible news.
“The entire world is sending love and prayers to Priscilla and Lisa Marie’s children right now. May it give you (strength).”
