‘Effective Immediately, I am Suspending Whoopi Goldberg’; The View Discussing New Hosts as Goldberg gets Suspended

Actress and comedian Whoopi Goldberg has been suspended from the ABC daytime show “The View” after making controversial comments about the Holocaust.

“Effective immediately, I am suspending Whoopi Goldberg for two weeks for her wrong and hurtful comments,” Kim Godwin, the ABC News president said.

“While Whoopi has apologized, I’ve asked her to take time to reflect and learn about the impact of her comments,” she said. “The entire ABC News organization stands in solidarity with our Jewish colleagues, friends, family and communities.”

Despite giving an apology, a source told The Post that Goldberg was “livid” over the suspension – to the point that she threatened to leave the show entirely.

Whoopi has had an extensive list of scandals during her time hosting The View.

Goldberg was criticized for her candid, outspoken defense following the allegations of sexual assault against Bill Cosby who had more than 25 women accuse him of rape or assault in 2014.

Goldberg appeared to defend NFL player, Ray Rice, after hitting his wife. She claimed that his wife admitted to hitting him first.

“If you make the choice, as a woman who is 4-foot-3, and you decide to hit a guy who is 6-foot-tall, and you’re the last thing he wants to deal with that day and he hits you back, you cannot be surprised,” Goldberg said in 2014.

Donald Trump demanded to see Barack Obama’s birth certificate during a 2011 episode of The View. 

“No one has ever said this to George Bush – I’m sorry, is Hawaii not part of the United States?” Goldberg quizzed.

“Isn’t Hawaii still part of the United States? Am I blind?”

Trump said he loved Goldberg and this wasn’t about race. Obama was “hiding something.”

While Rosie O’Donnell and Goldberg only co-hosted The View together for a year, the pair had their fair share of run-ins.In one heated debate, Goldberg told O’Donnell: “You are a white lady telling me what’s racist to you.”

“You don’t have to be black to know what racism is,” O’Donnell fired back.

According to multiple sources, The View will be welcoming Meredith Vieira, Star Jones and Elisabeth Hasselback back to the table to guest co-host the show, PEOPLE can exclusively confirm.
