Whoopi Goldberg Under Fire Over Holocaust Remarks: Whoopi Goldberg has come under new scrutiny for her comments on the Holocaust after receiving criticism for saying the genocide was not “about race.” The co-host of “The View” said in an interview with the Sunday Times, published on Saturday, that the Holocaust “wasn’t originally” motivated by race.
“Keep in mind who they killed first. They were murdering physically rather than racially. They were murdering those they deemed to have mental defects. Then they decided to do this,” she stated.
The 67-year-old actress and comedian were rebuffed by Times journalist Janice Turner, who pointed out that Nazi Germany officials targeted Jews with its racial legislation.
Goldberg responded, “Yes, but that’s the killer, isn’t it?” when Turner underlined that “Nazis saw Jews as a race? Your oppressor is describing who you are. Why do you think they’re true? They are Nazis. Why should we believe what they say?

It still isn’t possible to identify a Jew on the street, said Goldberg. “You might locate me. You failed to locate them. In an interview to promote her new movie “Till,” in which she plays the mother of civil rights pioneer Mamie Till-Mobley, Goldberg made the remarks.
The actress’s most recent comments have attracted further online criticism. Take a lesson from the @AuschwitzMuseum, Whoopi Goldberg: 1 million Jews were murdered in Auschwitz alone, according to Aviva Klompas, co-founder of Boundless Israel.
Hitler declared that Jews were a separate and inferior race and sought their destruction. Stop changing the past. Every Jew who was slaughtered during the Holocaust finds it offensive.
Video game creator Luc Bernard tweeted, “This is one of those instances where I think someone should force Whoopi Goldberg to go to a Holocaust museum and learn about the Nuremberg rules.”
The Hill has contacted ABC News for a response. Oscar-winning actor Goldberg was barred from “The View” earlier this year for making comparable remarks regarding race and the Holocaust. Later, she expressed regret for her comments.
ABC News president Kim Godwin said in a statement that she had ordered Goldberg to take time off “to contemplate and learn about the consequences of her words,” which led to the suspension of Goldberg for two weeks.

At the time, Godwin said, “The entire ABC News company stands in solidarity with our Jewish colleagues, friends, family, and communities. In her apology earlier this year, Goldberg stated that she would “never waver” in her support of Jews. Goldberg responded, “I’m sorry for the hurt I have caused.”
