Whoopi Goldberg faces scrutiny after controversial Holocaust remarks in Sunday Times interview

(WSVN) – Whoopi Goldberg is under scrutiny again for making similarly controversial comments involving the Holocaust.

She’s putting her fame behind her new film “Till,” the true story of a mother’s fight for justice after her 14-year-old son Emmett Till was lynched in 1955.

Goldberg executive produced and starred in the film.

“People should know Emmett Till’s story because systemic racism has such a long reach,” she said on The View.

The Oscar winner doubled down on her controversial comments about the Holocaust while promoting “Until” with London’s Sunday Times.

“The Jews themselves are divided on whether they are really a race,” she said in an interview with The Sunday Times.

She even quotes one of her Jewish friends.

“It’s not for nothing that the census doesn’t have a box for Jews. So that leads me to believe that we might not be a race,” Hooby said.

The actress, who was previously suspended by The View in January for making similar remarks, spoke to The Sunday Times about her so-called “cancellation”.

“The Holocaust ‘was not originally’ about ‘race’ or ‘physical characteristics,'” Whooby said in the interview. “It doesn’t change the fact that you can’t tell a Jew on the street. You can find me. You can’t find them.”

Earlier this year, the TV host posted a social media statement apologizing for her comments on The View, but the statement has since been deleted.

Goldberg’s remarks sparked a social media backlash during Hanukkah. ABC executives did not comment on her latest remarks.
