Whoopi Goldberg Suspended Over Holocaust Comments

This week daytime talk show host, Whoopi Goldberg, apologized for saying that the Holocaust was not about race [click here if you missed that]. 

Now Whoopi has been suspended...

From CNN 

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." Godwin told staff in an internal email, which was obtained by CNN, that decisions over disciplinary matters are "never easy." And Godwin said that she appreciated Goldberg's apology.

Godwin and all media networks on TV are Jewish. This is no surprise. You see how far NCannon had to bend over to get his jobs back.

If Whoopi go back she’s a dumb ass. I understood what she was saying!

Whoopie is still useful to them and she still needs them so 2 weeks off and an apology is for the people. If they was really pissed off she would have 2 weeks to come up with the narrative she wants to go with for why she suddenly is retiring.May all be some distraction these days you dont know what to believe

I see how this works now. If you're white like Megan you can insult people all day long with nary an apology. But if you're Black and says something incorrectly, and after a very sincere apology, you're suspended. I say boycott the View by not watching it until Whoppi returns!

I never watch the show so I'm good with whatever they do. You can't get too comfortable on these shows talking about race.

Changing your last name does not guarantee you an invite to the Jewish cookout. Now they got you in the time out corner waiting for somebody to bring you a plate.

WG is a good lead for the show. The rest of them are just talking heads to fill in.

11:50 am Kim Godwin is an HBCU grad (FAMU). I doubt she is Jewish. She just had to keep the commercial money coming in. The view be having 100 commercials in between segments.

Bingo! If she had said something dumb about slavery, she would have been completely cancelled. Two groups of people you don't say dumb shit about in the media . . . Black people or Jewish people.

4:32PM Uh Black people are the real Jewish people Lmao. You look dumb sticking up for the people who stole your true identity and put and funded your slavery SMH. Nick and Whoopi should’ve told everybody to kiss their ass. Truth is the truth

Remember when Steve Harvey said that he didn't give a damn about slavery? No consequence for him.

Funny. I've seen Black, African-American, White, Caucasian, Latino, Hispanic, Asian, Pacific Islander and Native American on many forms requesting my race identity. But I've NEVER not once seen JEWISH as an option. Is that what the "OTHER" box was for? FoH.
