Whoopi Goldberg has made headlines for all the wrong reasons recently. This is because she made some very insensitive remarks about the Holocaust on the View. It resulted in her getting suspended from The View for two weeks.
While she won’t be gone for long, her co-hosts aren’t happy about her forced hiatus regardless. Unsurprisingly, Whoopi Goldberg was blasted on social media for her remarks as well.
While speaking to TMZ, Rabbi Abraham Cooper from the famed Simon Wiesenthal Center in L.A. stated that he would love to have The View air live at the Museum of Tolerance. He stated that he believes a special week-long visit to the Museum, which focuses on the Holocaust, would be a great step for accountability.
The rabbi also believes it is bizarre to think Goldberg is anti-Semitic as she has been a supporter. He believes that her comment that the Holocaust was not racially-based was out of bounds, and since she said it on the show, she has to inform the audience of the reality.
Rabbi Cooper also believes Goldberg being suspended for two weeks is appropriate, because he thinks accountability is important. We will have to wait and see if the show will be filmed at the Museum of Tolerance or not.
