Whoopi Goldberg Comments on ABC Executive's Alleged Racist Comments

The View co-host Whoopi Goldberg is responding to the report about ABC executive Barbara Fedida allegedly making racist comments.

“I know Barbara Fedida and I don’t think she’s a racist. Everything I know about her doesn’t say that she has this in her,” Whoopi said. “But I will say that one of the things that everyone should always make sure we say — and I say it all the time — is let’s find out. Let’s find out. If it’s true, she’s gone. If it’s not, let’s find out what’s going on. An independent investigation is what this needs. The days of systemic racism are ending. Those walls are coming down and we’re pulling them down.”

“It was a tough weekend for me and I was really disappointed and saddened and hurt when I learned about the racist comments that were made, allegedly, about me, my colleagues and my dear friends,” Sunny Hostin added at the top of the show. Sunny spoke of systemic racism, and thanked Whoopi and Meghan McCain for their support.

Fedida reportedly made a racist comment about GMA‘s Robin Roberts. She has since been put on leave, with ABC saying, “There are deeply disturbing allegations in this story that we need to investigate, and we have placed Barbara Fedida on administrative leave while we conduct a thorough and complete investigation. These allegations do not represent the values and culture of ABC News, where we strive to make everyone feel respected in a thriving, diverse and inclusive workplace.”

The 64-year-old host wants to make sure if’s safe for her to return to the show amid the coronavirus pandemic.

“To be extra careful about her health, Whoopi is consulting with her doctor today,” co-host Sunny Hostin explained on Tuesday (March 17). “She wants everyone to know she feels fine and plans on being back here tomorrow.”

“We know that Whoopi had pneumonia, and was not in a good place,” Sunny added. “So, she just wants to get checked out and make sure that it’s smart for her to be here every day.”

Last week, host Joy Behar announced that she is taking time off as well.

Patrick Stewart Asks Whoopi Goldberg To Return as Guinan for 'Picard' on 'The View'

While promoting his new CBS All Access series, Star Trek: Picard, Patrick Stewart had a giant question for Whoopi Goldberg on The View.

The legendary actor, who stars as the title captain, formally asked Whoopi to return to the Star Trek universe by reprising her role as Guinan, the El-Aurian bar hostess.

“I’m here with a formal invitation, and it’s for you, Whoopi,” Patrick shared. “Alex Kurtzman, who is the senior executive producer of Star Trek: Picard, and all his colleagues, of which I am one, want to invite you into the second season.”

Obviously, she said yes!

“I’ve said this on the show before, but Star Trek was one of the great experiences, from the beginning to the end,” Whoopi added later on. “I had the best, best, best time ever.”

The group also discussed if Guinan would require Whoopi to go back to dark hair.

“She’s Guinan, and who knows what Guinan’s history really is,” Patrick said. “That could be one of the excitements down the road!”

Star Trek: Picard premieres Thursday, January 23rd.

Whoopi Goldberg & Meghan McCain Reveal Where They're At After Their On-Air Argument

On an episode of The View this week, Whoopi Goldberg and Meghan McCain went viral after Whoopi told Meghan, “Girl, please stop talking,” during a conversation about the impeachment.

Now, on today’s show, they addressed what happened.

“Things get heated on this show. If you watch the show, you know this has happened over the years. We’re really passionate, this is our job. We come in, we talk to each other. Sometimes we’re not as polite as we could be. That’s just the way it is,” Whoopi said. “This is part of what we do. This is not an indication that women can’t sit around and talk. This is not an indication that we don’t know how to deal with each other on camera. This is happening on real time. Stuff happens on this show in real time. And everybody, wherever you sit in all of this, don’t assume that we’re over here with butcher knives under the table.”

Meghan personally added, “Whoopi and I get along great, I love you very much, I’ve loved you for a long time, you were good friends with my dad, we fight like we’re family. It’s all good, we’re not tearing the set apart, calm down, all of you. It’s all good.”

“I think it is a lens into what’s happening politically in this country and you and I spoke this morning and America’s in very heated levels right now. I don’t love it, I don’t think anyone at home loves it but it’s raw and real and we’re all passionate women. I’m hyper hyper conservative, everybody else at the table is not and sometimes we’re gonna clash heads,” she continued.

Whoopi Goldberg Tells Meghan McCain to 'Stop Talking' During Heated Debate on 'The View' (VIDEO)

Whoopi Goldberg has had enough of Meghan McCain.

On Monday morning’s (December 16) episode of The View, the ladies got into a heated discussion about President Trump‘s impeachment.

Sunny Hostin first made a comparison between how President Bill Clinton‘s 1998 impeachment was handled in contrast to how the Republican-led Senate seems to be handling Trump‘s case.

“That is the height of hypocrisy for this Republican-led Senate,” Sunny shared.

Meghan then interjected, “My job is to analyze the politics of it. And I’m telling you – ” before being cut off by Sunny.

“But I’m not talking about you,” Sunny said. “I’m talking about the people that are the senators…”

The co-hosts began talking over each other. “Just let me finish. I let you talk, let me finish,” Meghan quipped back before questioning if they “wanted to hear a conservative perspective on this show ever.”

Whoopi then snapped at Meghan, “Girl, please stop talking, please stop talking right now.”

A shocked Meghan then said, “No problem, I won’t talk to the rest of the show, no problem.”

“I’m OK with that,” Whoopi responded. “If you’re going to behave like this…”

“I’m not behaving like anything,” Meghan replied, to which Whoopi answered, “You are!”

Unable to continue to conversation, Whoopi then cut to a commercial.

Photographed by Italian photographer Paolo Roversi, who was also in attendance, the “Looking for Juliet” calendar published by the Italian tyre manufacturer also features Kirsten Stewart, Whoopi Goldberg and others, including Roversi‘s daughter Stella.

“There’s no Romeo here, there are only Juliets who show up for a casting call, respond to questions, and reveal their own version of the character before re-enacting a passage from the tragedy, in costume,” photographer Paolo Roversi told Vogue earlier this year of his inspiration for the 2020 calendar. “What was very moving was to see actresses of this level audition like it was their first casting. There’s something so innocent, naïve, and sincere about it that really corresponds to Juliet.”

FYI: Claire Foy is wearing a The Vampire’s Wife dress. Mia Goth is wearing a Givenchy Atelier outfit. Yara Shahidi is wearing a Gucci dress and Harry Kotlar earrings.
