Whoopi Goldberg Issues An Apology After Using The Word “Gypped” While Hosting The View!

Cousins! Whoopi Goldberg has been placed in the hot seat once again following a recently aired episode of ‘The View’ where she apparently used offensive language in the notion of a slur!

The incident occurred as Whoopi alongside fellow members of The View were deep in conversation about former President Donald Trump and how his supporters felt swindled within the 2020 election. In describing how Trump supporters may have felt cheated she used the term, “Gy**ed”

According to Google search the word is described as a term closely connected to being cheated—while also utilized in, “short for gypsy.”

Whoopi endured immediate backlash online from social media users and the ABC network amongst a surplus of unruly tweets that read, “ @ABCNetwork if you don’t fire this race baiting #bigot Whoopie cushion, you will have further burned the #ABC brand, which used to mean something. @TheView spreads more hate and division than anything on television. #CancelTheView”

While another social media user tweet, Listen, i@don’t like Whoopie anymore than the next person, but cmon now. Seriously. Omg. Who identifies as a “gypsy” Lolol. “

Following the aired episode of The View’s verified Twitter account uploaded a video of her apologizing.

“You know, when you’re a certain age, you use words that you know from when you’re a kid or you remember saying, and that’s what I did today and I shouldn’t have.”

The actress continued, “I should have thought about it a little longer before I said it, but I didn’t, and I should have said ‘cheated’ and I used another word. And I’m really, really sorry.”

Cousins, what are your thoughts on this?
