Whoopi Goldberg has fired back at a critic of her acting after it was suggested that she wore a “fat suit” in her new movie “Till”
Goldberg seemed to barely contain her anger and admonished the young lady “who writes for one of the magazines.”
During today’s broadcast of ABC’s “The View,” Goldberg seethed as she warned the critic to comment on the acting and not her looks.
“I have to say something because there was a young lady who writes for one of the magazines and she was distracted by my fat suit in her review,” Goldberg said.
“I’m just gonna say this.
“I don’t really care how you felt about the movie, but you should know that was not a fat suit – that was me.
“Yeah, that was steroids, remember last year, I was very sick.
“I assume you don’t watch the show and didn’t know that was not a fat suit.
“But I just want to let you know that it is OK to not be a fan of the movie but you want to leave people’s looks out.
“Comment on the acting and if you have a question, ask somebody.
“Because I am sure you didn’t mean to be demeaning.”

Meanwhile, a joke Goldberg told about George W. Bush has finally been revealed, 18 years after it caused a major backlash.
Back when the only things that got “canceled” were network TV shows and print magazine subscriptions, Whoopi Goldberg nearly had her career derailed in 2004 by telling a joke.
The onstage rant, about then-President George W. Bush, was delivered at a New York City fundraiser for then-Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry.
The joke was never transcribed, but it was described in the lead of a New York Post article the next day:
“Whoopi Goldberg delivered an X-rated rant full of sexual innuendoes against President Bush last night at a Radio City gala that raised $7.5 million for the newly minted Democratic ticket of John Kerry and John Edwards,” wrote Deborah Orin.
“Waving a bottle of wine, she fired off a stream of vulgar sexual wordplays on Bush’s name in a riff about female genitalia, and boasted that she’d refused to let Team Kerry clear her material.”
According to The New York Times Magazine, “Goldberg’s career went dark. SlimFast, the diet-in-a-can brand for whom Goldberg had been the spokeswoman, dropped her. Friends stopped associating with her in public. She was disinvited from the Democratic National Convention.”
And here it is:
“When Bush comes to shove, don’t whine. Vote Kerry.
“And that’s why I’m here tonight. Because I love bush.
“But someone’s giving bush a bad name.
“Someone has tarnished the name of bush.
“Someone has waged war, someone has deliberately misled the country, someone has attempted to amend the Constitution, all in the name of bush.
“The bush I know and cherish would never do such things.
“My bush is smarter than that.
“And if my bush is smarter than that, you can understand just how dumb I think that other bush is.
“Vote your heart and mind, and keep bush where it belongs.”
