“The View” co-host Whoopi Goldberg has been suspended following her controversial remarks about the Holocaust.
“Effective immediately, I am suspending Whoopi Goldberg for two weeks for her wrong and hurtful comments,” ABC News president Kim Godwin said in a statement Tuesday evening. “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 and communities,” Godwin added.

Sharon Osbourne was fired from The Talk for defending me against a fake charge of racism.
Whoopi Goldberg said on The View yesterday that the Holocaust ‘wasn’t about race’, which for Jewish people is about as racist a comment as anyone could make.
Bet she doesn’t lose her job.
