The Powers That Be Just Cracked The WHIP On Whoopi Goldberg AGAIN!
Whoopi Goldberg faces a fresh round of backlash after her latest historically inaccurate statement about the Holocaust, which she claimed “wasn’t originally” about race in an interview with the U.K. newspaper The Sunday Times.
The controversy marks the second time this year that Goldberg, 67, has come under fire for what Jewish leaders and Holocaust experts say are inaccurate and offensive comments about the Nazi-sponsored mass murder of 6 million European Jews from 1933 to 1945.
Goldberg made the latest remarks in an interview published Saturday after the reporter said, “Nazis saw Jews as a race,” referring to Goldberg’s comments in January, when she claimed the Holocaust was “not about race.”
“Yes, but that’s the killer, isn’t it?” Goldberg told The Sunday Times reporter. “The oppressor is telling you what you are. Why are you believing them? They’re Nazis. Why believe what they’re saying?
“It wasn’t originally” about race, Goldberg continued. “Remember who they were killing first. They were not killing racial; they were killing physical. They were killing people they considered to be mentally defective. And then they made this decision.”
When the reporter told Goldberg that “the Nazis measured the heads and noses of Jews to ‘prove’ they were a distinct race,” Goldberg replied: “They did that to Black people too. But it doesn’t change the fact that you could not tell a Jew on a street. You could find me. You couldn’t find them. That was the point I was making. But you would have thought that I’d taken a big old stinky dump on the table, butt naked.”
Goldberg apologized in a statement Tuesday evening following the criticism of the interview. She said she was trying to convey why she made the original comment and recount what she was thinking at the time.
“It was never my intention to appear as if I was doubling down on hurtful comments, especially after talking with and hearing people like rabbis and old and new friends weighing in,” Goldberg said. “I’m still learning a lot and believe me, I heard everything everyone said to me. I believe that the Holocaust was about race, and I am still as sorry now as I was then that I upset, hurt and angered people.”
She ended the statement by saying her support for the Jewish community “has not wavered and never will.”
Backlash to and correction of the comments — which come amid rising antisemitism in the U.S. — were swift.
