Barbara Corcoran is issuing a heartfelt apology in the direction of Whoopi Goldberg after fielding criticism for making what she called a "joke" about the "Sister Act" star on "The View" Thursday. 

"I just came back from ‘The View’ and saw my old friend Whoopi," the "Shark Tank" star, 72, began in a video shared to Twitter. "She has a phenomenal sense of humor, and I've known Whoopi for years."

Corcoran continued: "I made a joke at Whoopi's expense, which I now realize wasn't funny. For anyone who I may have offended unintentionally, I just wanted to say I really am very sorry."

The moment in question came when Corcoran was explaining to the panel that Emma Grede – the founder and CEO of denim brand Good American – will be the first Black, female guest shark on "Shark Tank." The brand is also championed by Khloé Kardashian for its all-inclusive styling.
