Disney Fires Gina Carano But Not Whoopie Goldberg Questioned By Fans


Currently trending on Twitter is the topic of Disney having fired Gina Carano from the Star Wars series, The Mandalorian, in regards to comments about Jews and the Holocaust, but not Whoopie Goldberg, who found herself in the hot seat for comments made while appearing on ABC’s The View.

Goldberg made a comment about how “the Holocaust isn’t about race,” which has seen Goldberg suspended from The View for two weeks.

“Effective immediately, I am suspending Whoopi Goldberg for two weeks for her wrong and hurtful comments,” ABC News President Kim Godwin said in a statement, which is a network owned by Disney. “While Whoopi has apologized, I’ve asked her to take time to reflect and learn about the impact of her comments. The entire ABC News organization stands in solidarity with our Jewish colleagues, friends, family, and communities.”

Whoopie Goldberg has since apologized and retains her position on The View.

“On today’s show, I said the Holocaust ‘is not about race, but about man’s inhumanity to man.’ I should have said it is about both,” Goldberg posted on Twitter. “As Jonathan Greenblatt from the Anti-Defamation League shared, ‘The Holocaust was about the Nazi’s systematic annihilation of the Jewish people — who they deemed to be an inferior race.’ I stand corrected. The Jewish people around the world have always had my support and that will never waiver. I’m sorry for the hurt I have caused.”
