Academy Award-winning actress Helen Hunt, 53, used her spot on Wednesday’s episode of “The View” to talk about how “woke” she became by working on “Shots Fired,” a show about the Black Lives Matter movement.

“Being a white woman in America, I am finding is this process of waking up,” Hunt said.

She remarked on how one day she noticed the show had 60-80 percent black crew members, leading her to say, “Oh, this is how it’s supposed to be. It’s supposed to be like this.”

Hunt expressed regret at perhaps not being “woke” enough in the past.

Whoopi Goldberg announced her approval for Helen Hunt’s awakening and reminded her that everyone should wake up and hire more black people.

“Stay woke,” chimed in self-described conservative co-host Jedediah Bila.
