Per The Sun and the Daily Mail, “The View” fans demanded “out of touch” Whoopi Goldberg be fired for “going full-on nuts” live on air and saying a foul word.
During a segment on parenting, the TV host used a curse word to emphasize that sometimes parents need to be ruthless to do what they have to do.
The jaw-dropping statement from Goldberg happens to be one of her most shocking remarks on the daytime show. In February 2022, the actress said, “The Holocaust was not about race” but was “about man’s inhumanity to man.”
She explained that because it involved two white races, it should not be considered racist: “These are two white groups of people. 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 doesn’t matter if you’re Black or white Jews; it’s each other.”
Another on-air blunder was when she blasted her co-hosts, Sunny Hostin, Ana Navarro, Joy Behar, and Sara Haines, during a segment about gun violence in the US.
The comedian wanted to go to a commercial break when Hostin wanted to add something, leading three more ladies to chime into the conversation. Goldberg became annoyed and cut them all off, telling the women that she had had enough of their opinions:
“Okay, I can’t do this with you all! I have to go. I can’t do it anymore.”
The moderator took the show to commercial, then turned to the live-studio audience and demanded them to “clap now,” leaving the viewers stunned. One fan tweeted: “What was that? You can clap?”
Fans also took a stand against Goldberg by petitioning for her removal from “The View.” Via Change.org, signatures have reached 45,000 as of this writing, with a goal of 50,000.
The statement on the platform touched on the numerous remarks Goldberg had previously made but that the Holocaust scandal was the last straw, calling it “disgusting.” Fans made it known that her apology was futile as what she stated could never be erased from people’s minds:
“We as Americans demand that she be fired from the daytime TV show, “The View,” for her repulsive verbiage and actions.”
As a television host of “The View,” Goldberg has ruffled feathers during her stint. Even Britain’s Royal Family has been on her radar.
In March 2022, the “Ghost” star called on The Firm to apologize for their colonial past. She insisted that the sovereign could not “ignore the fact that Britain ran roughshod over India for years.”
Goldberg was discussing Prince William and Kate Middleton’s tour of the Caribbean on “The View” when she slammed the monarchy.
Moreover, Goldberg previously hinted that she had a close relationship with Prince Harry and expressed sympathy when his wife Meghan Markle revealed the hardships she went through as a senior royal member. The TV personality said watching the Sussexes’ televised interview with Oprah Winfrey was “tough.”
From the beginning, she was jubilant when news of Markle’s engagement to the prince made international headlines in 2017, praising her for being the first biracial American to become royal in the UK.
Goldberg said Markle marrying into the Royal Family would significantly change royal history. “The hue of the Royal Family is about to shift, which is interesting. It’s kind of wonderful.”
