Whoopi Goldberg Hits With Massive Punishment For Her ‘Wrong and Hurt’ Holocaust Comments

ABC suspended Whoopi Goldberg from “The View” for two weeks because of comments she made Monday claiming the Holocaust had nothing to do with race.

“Effective immediately, I will suspend Whoopi Goldberg for two weeks for her false and hurtful comments. While Whoopi has apologized, I have asked her to take time to think and learn about the impact of her comments,” ABC News President Kim Godwin said in a statement, according to the statement. ABC News.

“The entire ABC News organization stands in solidarity with our colleagues, friends, family and Jewish community,” Godwin said.

Goldberg tries to prevent the consequences for comment with an apology on Tuesday’s show.

“Yesterday on our show, I missed. I tweeted about it last night but I want you to hear it from me in person,” she said on Tuesday’s broadcast, according to CNN.

“I said something that I feel obliged not to overlook without careful investigation, because my words have offended so many people, it was never my intention. I understand why now and for that, I am extremely, deeply grateful that the information I received was really helpful and it helped me understand a number of different things.

Goldberg said: “I said the Holocaust was not about race but about man’s inhumanity to man.

“But it was really about race because Hitler and the Nazis saw the Jews as an inferior race,” she said.

That not her message Monday night on “The Late Show with Steven Colbert,” when Goldberg pointed out that skin color was the only form of racism she knew, saying, “as a black person, I think race is something that I can see.”

Has Goldberg’s image been damaged by this controversy?

“When you talk about being a racist, you can’t call this racist,” she said, according to Daily mail. “This is ugly. This is not skin based. You cannot tell who is a Jew. You have to dig deep and figure it out. My point is: They have to do the job. “

“If the Klan was going down the street and I was standing with a Jewish friend, I would run, but if my friend decided not to run, they would pass by most of the times because you can’t tell who is a Jew. You don’t know,” she said.

When Colbert pointed out that the Nazis themselves viewed the Holocaust as a racial issue, many saw Goldberg’s reaction double down.

“The Nazis lied,” she says (around 5:30 in the video below). “They had a problem with ethnicity, not race because most of the Nazis were white, and most of the people they attacked were white.

“So to me, I’m thinking, how can you say it’s about race if you guys are fighting each other?”

Those comments upset conservative commentator John Podhoretz.

“It’s great that she thinks of it that way. But it is utterly ignorant, stupid, and almost offensive,” wrote Podhertz in one pillar published by the New York Post on Tuesday.

“Literally six million people died because that’s not how the people who killed them thought about race. And as for the ‘something the Whoopi can see’ doctrine, remember that Hitler’s goal was to exterminate all the Jews on the planet – and currently, there are millions of Sephardic Jews of skin color. not classified as ‘white. ‘ Even Whoopi doesn’t ‘see’ them that way,” he wrote.

“No, Whoopi meant was clearly that the Jews she knew were light-skinned, and the Jews she had seen in the Holocaust films had light skin. Hence they are ‘white.’ And since racism only involved blacks and whites, they were also ‘white’ to Nazi Germany, and the genocide was a genocide of whites on whites. “

Many people on Twitter think that Suspensions not a lot of punishment at all.

Some inside ABC is also seething, according to UK Daily mail.

“These comments are absolutely disgusting and outrageous and it’s time for Disney and ABC to pair up and fire her,” the Daily Mail quoted a “senior ABC source” as saying.

“There is a blind spot on ‘The View’ when it comes to anti-Semitism. It was never a big enough hate crime against them.”

Behind the scene Anger also reported by the New York Post’s Page six.

“ABC employees and Disney Network executives are saying Whoopi has gone too far. And the panel members were not satisfied with her apology and wanted to withdraw the full application. The word is Whoopi is in ‘deep st,’ “Page Six quotes what it calls ‘a person in ABC’, which it does not name.

“Why does Whoopi seem to be overtaken while others are not? Maybe this time she won’t. Many in the network – including her fellow presenters – believe Whoopi is currently causing too much controversy for the show,” Page Six cites its source.
