Several sources told Page Six that ABC insiders are neither pleased with Whoopi Goldberg’s Holocaust comments nor her apology after the initial backlash and believe she should be disciplined.
“ABC staffers and Disney Network execs are saying Whoopi went way too far. And board members are not happy with her apology and want a fuller retraction. The word is that Whoopi is in ‘deep shit,’” one ABC source told the outlet.
As @bonchieredstate says, "Personally, I don’t have a lot of energy to waste on caring about Goldberg getting a two-week vacation. She’ll be just fine, and unlike many on the right, she won’t be ostracized or punished long-term."https://t.co/YZAAbCb5pV

My care level about Whoopi Goldberg being suspended for two weeks approaches zero. She didn't get fired. She'll be back and we'll never hear of this again. It's a slap on the wrist when a Republican would have been fired already, especially after she doubled down on Colbert.

If she was a conservative she would be getting fired. She's being suspended so the network won't have to put up with backlash and they know within 2 weeks everyone will forget about it and no one will care. https://t.co/X1j0RFdbnc
