Whoopi Goldberg Defiantly Returns to ‘The View,’ Vows to ‘Keep Having Tough Conversations’

After returning to “The View” on Monday following her two-week suspension, a defiant Whoopi Goldberg refused to back down.

Instead, Goldberg appeared to double down and vowed to “keep having tough conversations.”

Goldberg addressed her scandal by saying “and yes I am back.”

She then continued by saying that she was hired to have “tough conversations.”

The co-host said she plans “to keep having” these “tough conversations,” even if it’s “not what others want to hear.”

She then tried to explain away the scandal by admitting that the content of “The View” is “not pretty.”

“There’s something kind of marvelous about being on a show like this because we are The View and this is what we do,” Goldberg said.

“Sometimes we don’t do it as elegantly as we could.

“It’s five minutes to get in important information about topics.

“That’s what we try to do every day.

“We’re going to keep having tough conversations.

“And in part, because this is what we’ve been hired to do.

“And it’s not always pretty, as I said, and it is not always as other people would like to hear.

“But it is an honor to sit at this table and be able to have these conversations because they’re important.

“They’re important to us as a nation and to us more so as a human entity.

“I listened to everything everybody had to say and I was very grateful, and I hope it keeps important conversations happening.”

When suspending Goldberg, ABC News president Kim Godwin said: “Effective immediately, I am suspending Whoopi Goldberg for two weeks for her wrong and hurtful comments.

“While Whoopi has apologized, I’ve asked her to take time to reflect and learn about the impact of her comments.

“The entire ABC News organization stands in solidarity with our Jewish colleagues, friends, family, and communities.”

Goldberg said in her last appearance before the suspension:

“I tweeted about it last night but I kind of want you to hear it from me directly. I feel a responsibility.

“My words upset so many people, which was never my intention.

“I understand why. The information I got was really helpful.

“I said the Holocaust wasn’t about race and was instead about man’s inhumanity to man.

“It is indeed about race because Hitler and the Nazis considered Jews to be the inferior race.

“Words matter and mine are no exception.

“I regret my comments and I stand corrected.”
