Whoopi Goldberg recently expressed her gratitude on The View. This comes amid the ongoing backlash against the moderator. Some fans think she should be fired from the daytime talk show. Despite the controversy over her interview with The Times UK, Whoopi got to keep her position with ABC. Find out why she’s counting her lucky stars.
Whoopi Goldberg is a lucky lady
On Thursday’s episode of The View, Whoopi Goldberg claims that she’s a lucky lady. She’s glad to have her hosting gig amid the backlash. Fans have called for her firing from the talk show. Whoopi brought up the remarks she made in January 2022 of The View.
During her interview with The Times UK, she mentioned the Holocaust and the Jewish community. Whoopi reiterated that the tragic event was about race. The actress shared that she has friends who wonder if they fall under race or religion. She breathed a sigh of relief since she gets to keep her job.
Whoopi Goldberg opened up about her role as Miss Willa in the film Godfather of Harlem. She expressed her gratitude for the role. She loves roles where she can have “fun.” It’s a change from her latest movie Till.
However, Joy Behar took that comment as Whoopi wasn’t having fun being a moderator. Some fans have wondered if she’s over her job as well. Whoopi admitted that being on The View “is fun,” but she calls her new role “REALLY fun.” The studio audience cheered her on.
Whoopi Goldberg added: “Nobody is luckier on television than I am to have this gig.”
This could be the comedian’s reaction to the backlash. Fans think she should’ve been fired by the New Year. In December 2022, Whoopi made headlines for her interview with The Times, which went viral during the show’s holiday break. Both viewers and Jewish leaders announced that she should be removed from her position.
