Follow her Comments on the Holocaust, Whoopi Goldberg has been suspended since See for two weeks.
ABC News chairperson Kim Godwin said in a statement on Tuesday:
“Effective immediately, I will suspend Whoopi Goldberg for two weeks for her false and hurtful comments. While Whoopi has apologized, I have asked her to take time to think and learn about the impact of her comments. The entire ABC News organization stands in solidarity with our colleagues, friends, family, and Jewish community.”
This action comes a day after Whoopi said on TV:
“If you’re going to do this, let’s be honest about it now because the Holocaust is not about race. Is not. It’s not about race. “
Later on Monday, Whoopi issued an apology, saying:
“On today’s show, I said the Holocaust ‘is not about race, it’s about the inhumanity of man to man.’ I should say it’s about both. As Jonathan Greenblatt from the Anti-Defamation League shared, ‘The Holocaust was about the systematic extermination of the Jews by the Nazis, whom they considered an inferior race.’ I stand to correct. Jews around the world have always supported me and that will never give up. I apologize for the hurt I have caused. Written with my sincerest apologies, Whoopi Goldberg”
As of this writing, Whoopi has not commented on her suspension.
