Yesterday, news broke that Whoopi Goldberg was suspended from The View following remarks she made on Monday's show about the Holocaust, including a statement that the Holocaust was "not about race." Multiple insiders told The Daily Beast that Goldberg's co-hosts were "furious" over ABC's decision.
However, an ABC exec told The Daily Beast:
People are really upset and don’t understand why it took two days.
Ana Navarro said to the site:
I love Whoopi Goldberg. I love The View. This was an incredibly unfortunate incident. Whoopi is a lifelong ally to the Jewish community. She is not an antisemite. Period. I am sad. And I have nothing else to say.
The remarks came during a discussion about the graphic novel Maus being banned by a Tennessee school board.
