It was a nice cozy morning on the set of ABC News controversial talk show The View. Then the unthinkable did not happen, while Whoopi Goldberg, and her fellow co-hosts were discussing a banned book called “Maus”.
A Holocaust centered graphic novel that was banned by a Tennessee school board, which was part of a growing trend of banned books in the U.S. They then got on the subject about the Holocaust.
Whereas, Whoopi stated that the Holocaust was not about race and some other things.
However, she was suspended and later Whoopi Goldberg did take to Twitter and apologized. But ABC News President Kim Godwin, still took her voice further to say during Whoopi’s suspension, that she hope she takes the time to reflect and learn about the impact of her comments.
She continued: “The entire ABC News organization stands in solidarity with their Jewish colleagues, friends, family and communities.”
Ok that is respectable, and Whoopi might deserved to be suspended in their light. Nonetheless, we as a black race still should stand firm with her.
Whoopi Goldberg, born Caryn Elain Johnson, in Chelsea, NY. She is an actress, comedian and television personality.
She is just 1 of 16 celebrities with an Emmy, Grammy, Tony and Academy award. Whoopi Goldberg is still a champion and a figure who should still matters.
