Whoopi Goldberg Is Reportedly Furious Over Suspension And Threatening To Leave 'The View'

Whoopi Goldberg is reportedly quite angry about her suspension from The View, and sources close to the star have claimed that she's contemplating leaving the show completely. According to the New York Post, Whoopi believes she complied with each and every request and recommendation from ABC.

As a source explained, "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."
The source goes on to explain that the suspension feels especially hurtful: "Her ego has been hurt and she’s telling people she’s going to quit. Suspension from ‘The View’ is like getting suspended from Bravo. The bar is very low."
ABC News president Kim Godwin announced Whoopi's suspension following a series of public apologies from the star. As Godwin wrote in an ABC memo, the suspension came after consideration: "Words matter and we must be cognizant of the impact our words have."
Whoopi's cohosts on the show are reportedly angry about the action but thus far have all continued to appear on the show this week. Ana Navarro told The Daily Beast, "I love Whoopi Goldberg. I love ‘The View.' This was an incredibly unfortunate incident. Whoopi is a lifelong ally to the Jewish community. She is not an anti-Semite, period. I am sad. And I have nothing else to say."
Many have cited Whoopi's apology as sincere. Following the incident on the show, she wrote, "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. 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."
While appearing on The View the following day, she further clarified, "My words upset so many people, which was never my intention. I understand why now, and for that I am deeply, deeply grateful, because the information I got was really helpful and helped me understand some different things."
