Most people are shocked that “The View” moderator Whoopi Goldberg was reprimanded at all. The 66-year-old co-host is facing massive backlash after claiming the Holocaust was not about race during an episode of the show. Now ABC has suspended Goldberg for two weeks, but many are saying that punishment isn’t even close to appropriate.
For one thing, a suspension that’s temporary for such egregious comments only highlights the double standard in Hollywood. The Daily Wire’s Andrew Klavan reacted to the news with a suggestion to stop firing people for dumb comments in general.
“My feeling is: Don’t suspend @WhoopiGoldberg, simply put @ginacarano back in the @themandalorian and let @KevinHart4real host the Oscars and we’ll just call it… well, we’ll call it America,” Klavan tweeted.
Ben Shapiro responded, “Yeah, they’re not going to do any of that. So fire Whoopi. One standard.”
He also said in a separate tweet, “In a sane world, Whoopi wouldn’t be suspended. But the Left’s standard is that if you say a Bad Thing™ then you lose your job. So they should fire her. Mutually assured destruction until you stop with all of this nonsense.”
