Could this be the beginning of the end of Whoopi Goldberg’s career at “The View?” One insider certainly seems to think so. Following the drama that went down on-air and Goldberg’s apology, the show still chose to suspend the star and set an example. A source reportedly close to the situation told the New York Post that the suspension has left a sour taste in Goldberg’s mouth and she feels humiliated. “She feels ABC executives mishandled this. She followed their playbook. She went on ‘The Late Show With Stephen Colbert’ and then apologized again on ‘The View’ the next day,” the insider dished.
The source further elaborated that the suspension has weighed heavily on the veteran panel member. “Her ego has been hurt and she’s telling people she’s going to quit,” the same source shared, comparing her suspension to getting suspended from Bravo. “The bar is very low.”
Meanwhile, Twitter seems to be split on Goldberg’s suspension. “Whoopi Goldberg makes a sincere effort to better understand the Holocaust and its origins and gets suspended for two weeks. Florida Governor Ron DeSantis refuses to condemn Nazis and is considered a front runner for President. What could be the difference…” one person tweeted. Meanwhile, another wrote, “I don’t understand why you weren’t fired like Rosanne Barr was! She apologized too!! … I agree with you! You should quit!” We’ll just have to wait and see how everything pans out.
