Various Jewish activists and community members are demanding Whoopi Goldberg’s termination from ‘The-View’ after she doubled down on her past holocaust remarks, resulting in a fierce outcry on social media.
Ten months post suspension from ABC network’s daytime talk show, Whoopi Goldberg is in the news again. After insisting that Holocaust was “not about race, Goldberg in her latest interview U.K. paper The Sunday Times, showed little remorse for her past rhetoric, arguing again that the estimated 6 million Jews systematically killed in the holocaust were not targeted based on their race.
“The View’ co-host claimed that in addition to Jews, Nazis targeted people of African Descent because they were physically different and went on to suggest that Jews had an easier time hiding from the Nazis than black people by blending in with white people during the Holocaust.
She said that it does not change the fact that one could not tell a Jew on the street but could find her.
Reacting to Goldberg’s comments in an article, The Times of Israel marked her comments as “incendiary by pointing out that even though she has adopted a “Jewish sounding” stage name, her real name Caryn Elaine Johnson, has no Jewish ancestry.
Goldberg who has come to the show after a two-week suspension in February followed by an apology for her holocaust comments stunned many in the Jewish community. At the time, faith leaders, activists, and online critics encouraged her to educate herself on the but while largely supporting her to come back to the show.
However, now with lack of remorse clearly reflecting in her latest interview, some are calling for her termination. One of the most vocal voices is that of Lucy Lipiner, a Holocaust survivor and author of “Long Journey Home: A Young Girl’s Memoir of Surviving the Holocaust.
Goldberg, an Academy Award winner, was previously suspended by “The View” earlier this year after making similar comments about race and the Holocaust. She later apologized for those comments.
ABC suspended Goldberg for a two-week period for her previous remarks, with ABC News president Kim Godwin saying in a statement she ordered Goldberg to take time off “to reflect and learn about the impact of her comments.”
“The entire ABC News organization stands in solidarity with our Jewish colleagues, friends, family and communities,” Godwin said at the time.
Goldberg said in apologizing earlier this year that her support for Jewish people would “never waiver.”
“I’m sorry for the hurt I have caused,” Goldberg wrote then.
