Today many of us watch her on the talk show “The View” as one of the co-hosts. Her recent fiasco has her in deep waters with cancelled culture sharks swimming nearby and is also facing much criticism.
ABC News suspended “The View” host Whoopi Goldberg for two weeks on Tuesday night, hours after she apologized for having falsely declared on the daytime program that the Holocaust was “not about race.”
In a statement, ABC News president Kim Godwin bluntly described Goldberg’s comments about the Holocaust, which were made on “The View” Monday, as “wrong and hurtful.”
“While Whoopi has apologized, I’ve asked her to take time to reflect and learn about the impact of her comments,” Godwin said. “The entire ABC News organization stands in solidarity with our Jewish colleagues, friends, family and communities.” Kim Godwin
Godwin told staff in an internal email, that decisions over disciplinary matters are “never easy.” And Godwin said that she appreciated Goldberg’s apology.
All this criticism came Goldberg shared her view on the historic tragedy ‘The Holocaust’ which left many quite upset and totally shock not only their audience but all of us.
She explained ;
“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,……But it is indeed about race because Hitler and the Nazis considered Jews to be an inferior race.
Can you feel the cancel culture sharks inching closer and closer well safe to say that this is not the end of this story? Let’s keep our ears to the ground and see how this tale will unfold.
