Goldberg, notoriously known for her far-left politics, pushed a false and disturbing lie about the Holocaust by claiming it “was not about race,” adding that it was “two white groups of people.”
In response, ABC News president Kim Godwin said, “Effective immediately, I am suspending Whoopi Goldberg for two weeks for 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,” she added.
“The entire ABC News organization stands in solidarity with our Jewish colleagues, friends and communities,” Godwin said.
Sources who spoke with Page Six at the NY Post revealed that employees and executives at ABC say Whoopi Goldberg is in “deep sh**.”
Insiders at Disney, which owns ABC, are reportedly furious over the remarks. Executives claim this controversy will not simply “blow over.”
“ABC staffers and Disney Network execs are saying Whoopi went way too far. And board members are not happy with her apology and want a fuller retraction. The word is that Whoopi is in ‘deep s–t,’” the ABC insider said.
“Why does Whoopi seemingly get a pass when others don’t? Perhaps this time she won’t. Many at the network — including her fellow hosts — believe Whoopi is too controversial now for the show,” the ABC insider continued.
“This will cast a shadow over everything for a while. Even Joy Behar was heard saying backstage that Whoopi is ‘dead wrong’ and may not ever recover from this,” the source said. “Joy found this particularly troubling and couldn’t believe Whoopi wouldn’t stand corrected until she was forced.”
More from Daily Wire:
Staffers are reportedly “incredulous” and have been heard making statements like, “How stoned can she be?”
“Her agents are panicking that she may have ruined herself for good,” the source claimed. “Plus, now she has to worry about potential death threats.”
The report said that insiders are “insisting that her apology isn’t enough and demanding that she be fired.”
The Daily Wire’s Ben Shapiro responded to Goldberg’s remarks in a lengthy Twitter thread yesterday, writing: “Whoopi Goldberg explaining that the Holocaust wasn’t about race because these were ‘two groups of white people’ isn’t just insipid, it’s insidious.”
“It’s downplaying the minority status of Jews in order to uphold bullshit intersectional arguments that justify anti-Semitism today,” Shapiro added. “The intersectional argument is that Jews are white people, and that Jews are disproportionately successful thanks to ‘white supremacy.’ Because racism is ‘animus plus power,’ and Jews are powerful because they are white, anti-Semitism from non-white supremacists isn’t bigotry.”
Fortunately, the co-hosts of “The View” instantly disagreed. Joy Behar said, “Well, they considered Jews a different race.” Goldberg proceeded to double-down on her ignorant remarks and showed America exactly her stunning level of historical illiteracy.
Goldberg, who once said communism is “a great concept” that “makes perfect sense,” said, “The Holocaust isn’t about race.” She went on to claim the systematic killing of an estimated six million Jews was “about man’s inhumanity to man, that’s what it’s about.”
Co-host Ana Navarro chimed in, “But it’s about a White supremacist going after Jews and Gypsies.”
“But these are two White groups of people,” Goldberg said as her colleagues disagreed. “You’re missing the point,” Goldberg insisted.
“The minute you turn it into race, it goes down this alley. Let’s talk about it for what it is. It’s how people treat each other. It’s a problem. It doesn’t matter if you’re Black, or White, cause Black ,White, Jews, Italians, everybody eats each other.”
After these awful comments, Goldberg is trying to backtrack, but it may be too late. “Yesterday on our show, I misspoke,” she began.
“And I tweeted about it last night but I kind of want you to hear it from me directly. I said something that I feel a responsibility for not leaving unexamined because my words upset so many people, which was never my intention.”

“And I understand why now, and for that, I am deeply, deeply grateful because the information I got was really helpful and helped me understand some different things. I said that the Holocaust was ‘not about race’ and was instead about man’s inhumanity to man,” she continued, adding, “But it is indeed about race, because Hitler and the Nazis considered Jews to be an inferior race. Now, words matter and mine are no exception.”
“I regret my comments, as I said, and I stand corrected. I also stand with the Jewish people as they know, and y’all know, because I’ve always done that.” Watch the clip:
