Now, we all know that Whoopi Goldberg is a woman of many talents.

An actor, TV personality, comedian, and author, Goldberg has pretty much done it all.

Goldberg’s film breakthrough came in 1985 with her role as Celie, a mistreated woman in the Deep South in Steven Spielberg’s The Color Purple…

For which she won the Golden Globe Award for Best Supporting Actress in a Motion Picture.

She went on to appear in critically acclaimed movies such as Ghost (1992) and Sister Act (1993)…

And when she starred in Sister Act 2: Back in the Habit, she was the highest-paid actress in Hollywood.

Since 2007, Goldberg has also co-hosted and moderated the daytime talk show The View…

And she has become one of the most recognized faces on global television.

So, as you can see, Goldberg’s resume is very impressive!

However, recently she has caused controversy on the show after sharing her opinion on the Holocaust.

And people are, understandably, disgusted with her backward comments…

During the show’s Hot Topics discussion on January 31, the panel were discussing the graphic novel Maus and how it was recently banned from a Tennessee school district…

It’s the story of author Art Spiegelman’s father and his account of being imprisoned in a concentration camp.

“Let’s be truthful about it — because the Holocaust isn’t about race. No. It’s not about race,” she said.

“It’s about man’s inhumanity to man. That’s what it’s about,” as both groups were white.

Totally missing the point.

This prompted her co-hosts to question her comments, adding that the Nazis referred to Aryans as “the master race.”

However, Goldberg responded: “These are two white groups of people. You’re missing the point,” Goldberg added. “The minute you turn it into the race, it goes down this alley. Let’s talk about it for what it is. It’s how people treat each other. It’s a problem. It doesn’t matter if you’re Black or white, ’cause Blacks, whites, Jews, everybody eats [the] other.”

After her worryingly uneducated remarks went viral, Goldberg went on to apologize for any “hurt” she caused…

But, it simply wasn’t enough for some viewers as they called for her to be removed from the show.

And it seems ABC heard their comments…

ABC News President Kim Godwin said in a statement that Goldberg was suspended from The View for 2 weeks over her comments.

“Effective immediately, I am suspending Whoopi Goldberg for two weeks for her wrong and hurtful comments. While Whoopi has apologized, I’ve asked her to take time to reflect and learn about the impact of her comments,” she said.

Adding: “The entire ABC News organization stands in solidarity with our Jewish colleagues, friends, family, and communities.”

A decision that Whoopi Goldberg appeared to be unhappy with as she reportedly threatened to quit the show amid the suspension.

According to the New York Post, Goldberg opened up to someone, who told the news outlet how she was feeling about the situation.

“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,” they said.

“She’s telling people she’s going to quit.”

“Suspension from ‘The View’ is like getting suspended from Bravo. The bar is very low,” they finished.

But, after her 2 weeks suspension, Goldberg returned to the show.

Eliciting many comments from people around the world.

“Hello hello hello, welcome to The View, and yes, I’m back,” she began saying on the show.

Her colleagues then said that they’d missed her, for Goldberg to say: “I’ve missed you all, too. I’ve got to tell you there’s something kind of marvelous about being on a show like this because we are The View and this is what we do,” she continued on.

She then said lightheartedly that sometimes they don’t do it as “elegantly” as they could.

And continued to say: “It’s 5 minutes to get in important information about topics, and that’s what we try to do every day, and I want to thank everybody who reached out while I was away and I’m telling you people reached out from places that made me go ‘wait wait, what? Really? OK.’

“And it was amazing. I listened to everything that everybody had to say and I was very grateful. I hope it keeps all of the important conversations happening because we’re going to keep having tough conversations.

“It’s not always pretty as I said, It’s not always as other people would like to hear, but it is an honor to sit at this table and be able to have these conversations because they’re important,” she said.

“They’re important to us as a nation,” she continued explaining. “And to us more so as a human entity.”

It has now been a matter of weeks since Goldberg’s return, and everything on The View appeared to be going smoothly.

That was until Goldberg and the panel discussed ‘gentle parenting.’

Goldberg has come under fire most recently for laughing at a mom’s “gentle parenting” style.

The show discussed and showed a viral TikTok video by mom, Kelly Enos, which sees her demonstrate her gentle parenting style.

The viral video sees Enos says: “How many of you are sick to death of disciplining your child with these words? No, get down.”

“You could try things like this ‘Feet on the floor please,’” Enos said in the viral video. “It just makes a more positive spin on getting down. Either you can put your feet on the floor or Mommy can help you, which one would you like?”

However, Goldberg made it pretty clear that she wasn’t a fan of the style…

Laughing as she introduced the segment, Goldberg said: “A mom on TikTok is going viral because she’s making the case for so-called gentle parenting, where you go beyond just saying no to your child.”

Then, following the video, Goldberg said: “Honestly. Is that really a realistic approach when your children are acting up?”

“But, I pressed play and I was greeted with Whoopi Goldberg patronizing and laughing at me,” she continued. “The panel poo-pooed gentle parenting. I was disappointed as I thought at least one of them would have seen where I was coming from.”

Enos has since responded to a segment from the show in a video on TikTok where she explained how gentle parenting works.

Alongside the video, she also added the caption: “WHAT THE ACTUAL!!!!! @The View @Whoopi Goldberg Thank you for sharing my video (and trying the English accent 😂) Drop me an email… let’s talk.”

And now, Goldberg has urged Britain and the British Royal Family to apologize for their ties with the empire and slavery.

Which many people have commented on.

Many people agreed with Goldberg, saying that it is a good idea for the Royal Family to apologize for their ties to slavery in the past.

But, some had other controversial opinions.

Saying that it isn’t happening anymore so no apology is necessary.

Not long after Goldberg landed herself in more fire for laughing at a mother’s approach to parenting, she has now urged the British Royal Family to apologize for the slave trade history.

Scroll on to find out exactly what she had to say.

Britain ended their ties with slavery on May, 1, 1807.

The legislation was passed that made it illegal for any British ship or subject to trade in enslaved people.

The rise of the British Empire began in 1601, and The Empire, which was developed into the Commonwealth, officially fell in 1997. This was after 1907 when dominion status was granted to a number of colonies, continuing on through to 1945-1947 when a series of countries in the Empire were granted independence, and the Empire began to steadily decline, as per Britannica.

Although The British Empire no longer exists in Britain, it has left a scar on many, including Goldberg.

Talking on The View Goldberg demanded that someone issue an apology for their involvement.

“Britain ran ram shod over India for years,” she said, as per LADbible.

“Let us not forget when we talk about what needs to happen, all the folks that need to apologize.

“Listen, this is not new. I suspect Charles, when he was in Barbados, had some idea because he went on and apologized, yes, he was releasing the hold that Britain has,” she continued, talking of the November ceremony where Barbados broke its ties with Queen Elizabeth as their Head of State.

“So perhaps someone is listening, and it’s the new group of folks I don’t know if it’s Charles but one of them,” she said.

Goldberg’s discussion came after Prince William and The Duchess of Cambridge arrived in Jamaica, where many were stood protesting their arrival. 100 Jamaican officials even signed a letter urging them to make a statement on their involvement with their imperial past.

“We see no reason to celebrate 70 years of the ascension of your grandmother to the British throne because her leadership, and that of her predecessors, have perpetuated the greatest human rights tragedy in the history of humankind,” the letter read.

“You, who may one day lead the British Monarchy, are direct beneficiaries of the wealth accumulated by the Royal family over centuries, including that stemming from the trafficking and enslavement of Africans,” it finished.

Jamaica wants to cut all ties with the British monarchy, wishing to become an independent country.
