Whoopi Goldberg reportedly threatening to quit ‘The View’ following suspension

The Daily Wire reported on Wednesday that left-wing entertainer Whoopi Goldberg is said to be on the verge of quitting ABC’s “The View.”

That comes after Goldberg was hit with a two-week suspension this week in response to inflammatory comments she made concerning the Holocaust.

Goldberg claimed that “the Holocaust isn’t about race”

“If we’re going to do this, let’s be truthful about it because the Holocaust isn’t about race,” the Daily wire quoted Goldberg as saying of the Nazi genocide in which 6 million Jews were murdered.

“No,” the comedian and actress went on to insist, repeating, “It’s not about race. It’s not about race. It’s not about race.”

According to The New York Times, ABC News president issued a statement announcing that Goldberg would be suspended due to her “her wrong and hurtful comments.”

“While Whoopi has apologized, I’ve asked her to take time to reflect and learn about the impact of her comments,” Godwin declared. “The entire ABC News organization stands in solidarity with our Jewish colleagues, friends, family and communities,” she added.

However, the Daily Wire pointed to a New York Post report in which an anonymous source was quoted as saying that the daytime television star is considering whether to leave the show permanently.

ABC fired Rosanne Barr over offensive tweet

“She feels ABC executives mishandled this,” the source said. “She followed their playbook. She went on ‘The Late Show With Steven Colbert’ and then apologized again on ‘The View’ the next day.”

“Her ego has been hurt and she’s telling people she’s going to quit. Suspension from ‘The View’ is like getting suspended from Bravo. The bar is very low.”

Interestingly, ABC fired Rosanne Barr from her show in 2018 after she put out a tweet about former Obama administration adviser Valerie Jarrett that many considered to be racist.

This was despite the fact that Barr apologized for the remark and professed to not know that Jarrett is of African American descent. “I honestly thought she was Jewish and Persian–ignorant of me for sure, but…I did,” The Hill quoted Barr (who is herself Jewish) as tweeting.
