Terror on the Prairie actress Gina Carano responded to the recent suspension of Whoopi Goldberg following her comments about the Holocaust on The View calling for “conversation over cancellation.”
Goldberg was suspended two weeks by ABC News President Kim Godwin who stated, “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,” Godwin added.
She concluded, “The entire ABC News organization stands in solidarity with our Jewish colleagues, friends, family and communities.”
The suspension came after a discussion about the removal of graphic novel Maus from a Tennessee school district’s curriculum.
During the discussion Goldberg stated, “If you are going to do this then let’s be truthful about it because the Holocaust isn’t about race. No, it’s not about race.”
When Joy Behar countered saying, “They consider Jews a different race,” Goldberg responded, “It’s not about race. It’s not about race.”
