Whoopi Goldberg incenses Holocaust Controversy
While discussing a Tennessee school board’s recent decision to ban the graphic novel MausWhoopi Goldberg made controversial statements about Holocaust survivors in a documentary called. The View that she’s been universally criticized for making. Goldberg claimed that during the segment, “The Holocaust isn’t about race. No, it’s not about race,” adding, “It’s about man’s inhumanity to man.”
Despite Goldberg’s co-hosts trying to correct her, Ana Navarro argued. “Well, it’s about white supremacy. That’s what it’s about. It’s about going after Jews and Gypsies.” Goldberg wasn’t hearing it, though.
“But these are two groups of white people,”Goldberg was insistent. “You’re missing the point. The minute you turn it into race, it goes down this alley. Let’s talk about it for what it is. It’s how people treat each other. It’s a problem. It doesn’t matter if you’re black or white because black, white, Jews, Italians, everybody eats each other.”
Goldberg’s Double Apology
Her claims about the Holocaust elicited swift criticism. “not about race,”Goldberg used Twitter to express his regret, writing in part. “I stand corrected,” adding, “The Jewish people around the world have always had my support and that will never waiver. I’m sorry for the hurt I have caused.”
Goldberg repeated that apology on air with another the day after. The View, saying, “I tweeted about it last night but I kind of want you to hear it from me directly. I feel a responsibility.”She continued, “My words upset so many people, which was never my intention. I understand why. The information I got was really helpful.”
“I said the Holocaust wasn’t about race and was instead about man’s inhumanity to man. It is indeed about race because Hitler and the Nazis considered Jews to be the inferior race,”Goldberg was also mentioned. “Words matter and mine are no exception. I regret my comments and I stand corrected.” That apology wasn’t enough, however, some alleged PageSix received information from insiders at ABC.
Allusions to ABC Insiders’ Spill
“ABC staffers and Disney Network execs are saying Whoopi went way too far. And board members are not happy with her apology and want a fuller retraction. The word is that Whoopi is in ‘deep s–t,’”One source claimed that an insider at ABC told the outlet, “Additionally,“Why does Whoopi seemingly get a pass when others don’t? Perhaps this time she won’t. Many at the network — including her fellow hosts — believe Whoopi is too controversial now for the show.”
The insider went on to say that Goldberg’s troubles aren’t “just going to blow over.” “This will cast a shadow over everything for a while. Even Joy Behar was heard saying backstage that Whoopi is ‘dead wrong’ and may not ever recover from this,”The source stated. “Joy found this particularly troubling and couldn’t believe Whoopi wouldn’t stand corrected until she was forced.”
This insider claimed that ABC’s other employees were also affected by the same incident. “incredulous”They are supposedly asking questions such as “How stoned can she be?” The source added that Goldberg’s agents are “panicking that she may have ruined herself for good.”Goldberg offers additional career advice. “has to worry about potential death threats.”
In the end, however, another TV insider insists. “Whoopi may benefit from the fact that people are tired of cancel culture. But it is still astonishing that it’s one rule for Whoopi and another for everyone else.” It’s certainly clear that Goldberg’s ignorant statement has left a sour taste in everyone’s mouths, but without a statement from the network, we can’t say for sure what her future with The ViewWill be.
