On Wednesday, March 15, Whoopi Goldberg made an apology after using an ethnic slur towards the Romani people on “The View”.
During a discussion about charges against former President Donald Trump, she remarked that some of his supporters believed he “got ‘gy—-d’ somehow in the election”, a term for cheating that reinforces a negative stereotype about the Romani people.
She issued a prompt apology online, saying she should have thought longer before using the phrase and stating her remorse.
This is not the first time Goldberg has been reprimanded for controversial viewpoints or outdated language.
Last year, she was suspended from “The View” for two weeks due to her argument that the Holocaust was not “about race” and subsequently apologized for making similar comments again in December; however, no disciplinary action was taken.
