Whoopi Goldberg has been suspended from The View for two weeks after she controversially claimed on Monday that the Holocaust was “not about race.”
During a segment in which the show’s panelists discussed a Tennessee school board’s removal of the Holocaust graphic novel Maus from its eighth-grade curriculum, Sunny Hostin accused members of the board of “banning discussions about race.”
Co-host Joy Behar agreed, while Goldberg shared a peculiar take.
Goldberg said, “If you’re going to do this, then let’s be truthful about it because the Holocaust isn’t about race.”
“No, it’s not about race,” Goldberg added after some back and forth. “It’s not about race. It’s about man’s inhumanity to man. That’s what it’s about.”
Goldberg doubled down after some pushback.
ABC president’s note to staff:
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.
The entire ABC News organization stands in solidarity with our Jewish colleagues, friends, family and communities.
