Whoopi Goldberg on her comments regarding how Mel Gibson isn’t a racist because essentially, you know, she totally is his black friend.
First Whoopi’s “It isn’t rape-rape,” Defense of Polanski, some other really stupid things she’s publicly said and done, and now this. She is completely ruining Sister Act for me, dammit.
Aside from her eagerness to constantly play devil’s advocate and defend even the shittiest things that people do , what pissed me off about the above quote was the way she said “blogger” — she spit it out like it was a mouthful of shit. As if people who sit at home and voice their (sometimes stupid) opinions are morally inferior to people who get up on a fucking sound stage and voice their (sometimes stupid) opinions (IT’S NOT RAPE-RAPE, PEOPLE). Come off it, Whoopi. You get paid to do in front of a camera what I do at home in my pajamas. That makes you richer than me, not better.
Then, she proceeded to let us know, in an incredibly condescending tone, what she thinks of people who “sit around at home trying to figure out stuff to do.” Way to insult your target demographic. You are on a morning talk show, Whoopi. Who do you fucking think is watching your show?
