Whoopi Goldberg Suspended

Article

Since The View seems to constantly call out for people to be cancelled, and the ignorance of her statement, do you feel a suspension was enough?

Her statement was wrong and although she apologized, she was adamant about her opinion when she first said it (I saw the clip). The rest of panel appeared uncomfortable and when someone tried to correct her- she maintained her position.

Re: Whoopi Goldberg Suspended

I feel the suspension was too much.
She chose the wrong words in the moment on live tv based on her feelings and experiences around race, was corrected numerous times the rest of that day and night.
The very next morning on the show she admitted she was wrong and learned more about why.

They took Roseanne off the air as well as Last Man Standing so she SHOULD be fired, not just taken off for 2 weeks.

I like her as an actress. As a living, breathing, liberal, IRL, not so much and who even still watches that show?

Roseanne was an entirely different situation though. She dressed as a Nazi and posed with burnt “Jew cookies” from an oven.

That is not why she got cancelled. She made a racist tweet about Valerie Jarrett.

I can't believe people watch it on TV AND actually go there to sit in the audience.

Honestly I am so sick of this cancel culture and think the suspension was too much. I don’t like the view or care too much for Whoopi. But in the same breath, I do agree the slap on wrist punishment is biased because she’s black compared to what would have happened if she was white..

I am not sure if any of you watch the RHOSLC but Mary, a black cast member said a racist comment about black people the first year . Bravo pretty much let it go, then this year she said disgusting things about Mexicans and Asians. They addressed it slightly but no where near how it should’ve been. They didn’t even fire her, she ended up quitting for a different reason. Why did Bravo let it go because she is black. Leanne from Dallas got fired and scrutinized for calling a Mexican, Mexican lol. But she’s white, so it’s ok.

I think the View should be canceled completely - it's a waste of airtime lol.

And I do think cancel culture has gotten out of control - especially for those who are having past items brought to light... I'm sure if you dig deep enough you can find incriminating dirt on a lot of people in the public view.

Omg the past. People want to live in the past to judge and kill careers. It’s so odd. I don’t even want to look at the stupid sh!t I posted on FB over a decade ago.

Exactly. I get that. I just think the entire show is a waste also and can't even sit through 1 minute of it.

@Ali I do have to comment how funny it is that you say Cancel the view and then the second paragraph talk about cancel culture going too far. I know it’s two different things and agree with you, but I got a nice chuckle out the wording. Chat Icon Chat Icon Chat Icon

Mary is odd. She made comments again her own, as she is black. She was very two faced, cold, and often seemed to be lying. Glad she is off the show. She didn't bring anything to the table.

Whoopi Goldberg Suspended

Personally I do not believe in cancel culture but since Hollywood seems so enthralled with it, then she should have been fired. People have been fired for much less.

That whole show should be cancelled because it is the most hateful show I have ever seen on TV. Joy is disgusting with her comments and Sunny is really no better. She is nasty.

If they cancelled Billy Bush for laughing at something Trump said years ago, fired Roseanne for saying a nasty tweet, then the whole View should be bye bye.
