The View moderator Whoopi Goldberg is once again at risk of facing the chopping block. Although most hosts on the show are known for having strong opinions, Whoopi has caused a lot of controversies this year. However, after her latest disputed opinion on the Holocaust, fans are against her. Now, even the show executives are begging the 67-year-old to quit her post as the moderator. Why do The View executives want Whoopi to quit the show? Keep reading to find out the details!
Whoopi Goldberg Believes The Holocaust Wasn’t About Race
Whoopi Goldberg has been serving as a moderator on the ABC show for 15 years and after a recent string of controversies, her bosses now want her gone. Earlier this week, the Academy Award winner came under fire once again. The host doubled down on her past comments regarding the Holocaust and Jewish people. In February 2022, Whoopi Goldberg was suspended from the talk show after she claimed that the Holocaust had nothing to do with race.
The Sister Act star asserted that her claim regarding the Holocaust that led to the death of 6 Million Jewish people between 1941 and 1945 was true. In a conversation with The Times Of London, she said, “My best friend said, ‘Not for nothing is there no box on the census for the Jewish race. So that leads me to believe that we’re probably not a race.’”
She further clarified, “Remember who they were killing first. They were not killing racial; they were killing physical. They were killing people they considered to be mentally defective. And then they made this decision.”
The View Executives Want Whoopi Goldberg Gone
Now, an insider claims that The View executives are tired of Whoopi’s constant on-air altercations. They also believe it is costing them viewers. The source further explained that Whoopi seems to pick fights all the time and even it makes everything toxic on the set.
“It’s clear she’s very unhappy. Everyone’s begging her to step aside for her sake and the sake of the show. Her health has been suffering, and she always seems to be ready for a brawl. It’s at the point where the constant fighting is literally killing her,” the insider added.
Whoopi Goldberg Apologizes For Her Holocaust Comments
After an intense backlash from fans calling for her to be fired, the Golden Globe Award winner apologized for her comments. She revealed that it wasn’t her intention to hurt anyone. She affirmed that she now believes that the Holocaust was about race.
“And I am still as sorry now as I was then that I upset, hurt, and angered people,” she said.
