Whoopi Goldberg is furious with her suspension and is threatening to quit “The View” permanently, according to reports.
As Slay News previously reported, Behar was suspended by ABC News over comments she made about the Holocaust.
Apparently outraged by the response from the network, Goldberg is now threatening to quit the hit show, according to sources who spoke to The New York Post.
The Post’s sources are saying Goldberg is “livid” with her suspension and feels humiliated by ABC executives.
The outlet is also reporting that she is so angry she is telling people she will quit.
“She feels ABC executives mishandled this,” a source told the Post.
“She followed their playbook.
“She went on ‘The Late Show With Steven Colbert’ and then apologized again on ‘The View’ the next day.
“Her ego has been hurt and she’s telling people she’s going to quit,” the source added.
“Suspension from ‘The View’ is like getting suspended from Bravo.
“The bar is very low,” the source said.
Whoopi Goldberg has been suspended from The View for two weeks over her Monday remarks about the Holocaust, and most of her co-hosts are furious with the network, sources told The Daily Beast.
…“People are really upset and don’t understand why it took two days,” an ABC executive told The Daily Beast. But multiple sources said that Goldberg’s co-hosts Sunny Hostin, Joy Behar, and Ana Navarro are furious with the network’s decision.
Navarro, a regular guest host who was on Monday’s broadcast, later told The Daily Beast how sad she was about the entire saga.
“I love Whoopi Goldberg. I love The View,” she said on Tuesday evening.
“This was an incredibly unfortunate incident. Whoopi is a lifelong ally to the Jewish community. She is not an antisemite. Period. I am sad. And I have nothing else to say.”
