Whoopi Goldberg is on the receiving end of some hate for saying Mel Gibson never struck her as a racist.

“There has been a lot of hassle … in the media recently about moi because I had the audacity to say that I had some personal time with Mel that goes over years and years and said that I did not think of him as a racist,” Whoopi began on The View today.

“If you had actually watched the show, you would have heard us say, and you would have heard me specifically say, ‘I don’t condone this. I don’t think this is right, I don’t think this is smart. But here’s the piece of information that I have. My experience tells me that this is not a racist,'” she continued.

“Being a black woman, you’d think you would give me a little bit of leeway to have some feelings if I was around a racist.” Doesn’t seem that way at all does it?

  1. Just because he didn’t act like a racist around black people doesn’t mean he isn’t one. Besides, Whoopi works on a talk show so she gets paid to talk so it is natural that she would state her opinion on the matter (esp. since she knows the man). It doesn’t mean that she should be berated for stating her experiential knowledge. Further, she didn’t say he wasn’t a racist just that he never struck her as one.

  2. if you watch the show you’ll see she’s right. and she’s 100% right a/b how it’s SO wrong for ppl who are mad at her to call and treat her assistant the same way mel treated oxana whatever her name is. NOT excusing his behavoir…just saying alcohol makes you do stupid things.
