Whoopi Goldberg Furious Over Suspension

This week Whoopi Goldberg was suspended from her hosting job on daytime talk show The View for saying she didn't think the Holocaust was about race [click here if you missed that]. 

Now insiders are claiming Whoopi is thisclose to quitting...

On set sources tell Radar Online
“Whoopi is livid. She is a proud woman who has an Oscar. She doesn’t need this sh**. ABC bowed down to outside pressure and humiliated Whoopi. They kicked her when she is down rather than having her back. The question is, does Whoopi even want to return to the show? At the moment that answer is ‘no.’ This could have been a teachable moment. A 24-hour news story, but now ABC has made it much bigger with the suspension."
"On Monday after the comments, ABC had her back. So much so they still went forward with her 6 pm taped interview on Colbert. Whoopi was back on the show apologizing on Tuesday, then things took a turn. It was around 1 pm on Tuesday that the bosses decided they were going to punish her. She is pissed."
