BREAKING: Whoopi Goldberg Gets The News She’s Been Dreading – BYE!!

Whoopi Goldberg has been officially suspended.

The actress, who voiced a maniacal hyena in Disney’s 1994 animated movie “The Lion King,” ruffled more than a few feathers recently when she said the extermination of 6,000,000 Jews around World War Two was not about race.

ABC News President Kim Godwin was left with no choice.

“Effective immediately, I am suspending Whoopi Goldberg for two weeks for her wrong and hurtful comments. While Whoopi has apologized, I’ve asked her to take time to reflect and learn about the impact of her comments, the entire ABC News organization stands in solidarity with our Jewish colleagues, friends, family and communities.”

Whoopi is no doubt hoping the situation will blow over soon, but according to at least one source inside ABC, that is unlikely to happen.

“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,’” the source said. “Why does Whoopi seemingly get a pass when others don’t? Perhaps this time she won’t. Many at the network — including her fellow hosts — believe Whoopi is too controversial now for the show. This will cast a shadow over everything for a while. Even Joy Behar was heard saying backstage that Whoopi is ‘dead wrong’ and may not ever recover from this. Joy found this particularly troubling and couldn’t believe Whoopi wouldn’t stand corrected until she was forced. Her agents are panicking that she may have ruined herself for good.”
