ABC News Suspends ‘The View’ Host Whoopi Goldberg

CNN.Com:– ABC News suspended “The View” host Whoopi Goldberg for two weeks on Tuesday night, one day after she drew significant criticism for falsely declaring that the Holocaust was “not about race.”

“Effective immediately, I am suspending Whoopi Goldberg for two weeks for her wrong and hurtful comments,” ABC News president Kim Godwin said in a statement.

“While Whoopi has apologized, I’ve asked her to take time to reflect and learn about the impact of her comments,” Godwin added. “The entire ABC News organization stands in solidarity with our Jewish colleagues, friends, family and communities.”

As Godwin said in her statement, Goldberg had in fact apologized for her remarks. On Monday night, Goldberg apologized in a note posted to Twitter. And on Tuesday, Goldberg opened up “The View” offering yet another apology.

“Yesterday on our show, I misspoke. I tweeted about it last night but I want you to hear it from me directly,” the comedian and actor said. “I said something that I feel a responsibility for not leaving unexamined, because my words upset so many people, which was never my intention. I understand why now, and for that I am deeply, deeply grateful because the information I got was really helpful, and it helped me understand some different things.”

“I said the Holocaust wasn’t about race and was instead about man’s inhumanity to man,” Goldberg said Tuesday on “The View.” “But it is indeed about race because Hitler and the Nazis considered Jews to be an inferior race.”

She continued, “Now, words matter and mine are no exception. I regret my comments, as I said, and I stand corrected. I also stand with the Jewish people as they know and y’all know, because I’ve always done that.”

Her comments bothered staffers across ABC News. While some accepted her apology, others believed disciplinary action was warranted, according to conversations with employees.

Goldberg is no stranger to controversy, having made a number of comments throughout her nearly 15 years on the program that have sparked backlash.

In 2009 she remarked that Roman Polanski was not guilty of “rape-rape,” a comment which she later clarified. Goldberg also initially defended Bill Cosby as he faced sexual assault accusations, a position she ultimately reversed.

  1. I am trying again…testing the St. Lucia Times’ censors…for the 5th time:

    It seems that all those dollar bills (magically created from thin air by the global banksters) paid to Whoopi have corrupted her ability to understand why she was hired by ABC, in the first place. Her name, Goldberg, and her dark pigmentation were supposed to reinforce into the minds of the ignorant public that there is actually a Jewish race (plucked right out of the playbook written by Bernays). This would enable the Zionists to continue to portray themselves as perpetual victims of racism, and avoid opprobrium for their actions against Arabs in Occupied Palestine, over the last 70+ years; actions very much like those of which they accused the Nazis.

    There was hasty damage control, though, from her masters. She has been made to apologize publicly, and will be suspended for a couple of weeks (to take care of the embarrassing flatulence from her various orifices), by which time, the attention-deficit public would have been distracted by a newer, shiny object – look over there, Rihanna is pregnant!

  3. The white Europian faking as jews are of the same race as Hitler. The Holocaust never happened. The biggest lie in the history of mankind. In fact my only beef with Hitler is there is still white “Jews”

  4. BIG DEAL….so you can’t talk about them in that manner ??? What F@#$%k ?? Know you see why people would be enraged against them and why Hitler couldn’t stand them. Woman you need to move off that show …you think your last name gives you props with them people, well now you know. Black people not backing you either because just like OJ you never stand with them for anything. Black People you see the power you can have when you organized yourselves…..

  5. Jew is not a “race”. Hitler was a white supremacist. He was even racist against white people who lacked blue eyes and blonde hair. Notwithstanding good riddance to her.

  6. Of all people to say a thing like that – a black woman; It is a silly statement, but she is not the only one. I can think of some past Presidents who have said worse. Whoopi is getting too old for this game, she should pack it in and go “make whoopi” but with a name like Goldberg, one would think she is Jewish.

  7. Time for her to be fired completely and let her stick with acting in movies. She’s out of touch with the rest of the world, time you read your history Woopi as there are other races around than just your own and they have suffered just as much too. Then you wouldn’t spout such ignorant BS. We’ve never known you to stand with the Jewish people as you claim, so you can cut that fake storyline too.
