Whoopi Goldberg -- Sorry, New York Times

2/16/2011 3:40 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Whoopi Goldberg made an odd apology -- on The View -- for putting the New York Times on blast for omitting her from an story about African-American Oscar winners ... but she also took time to throw one last jab.

Whoopi said she was sorry she called the NYT article "shoddy reporting" ... but reiterated she "personally" felt it was wrong that several actors -- including herself -- were not mentioned.

Why is that costume woman along with EH not fired? Why was EH wearing another of her SUNDRESSES today in winter? I thought it was a RE-RUN when I tuned in.

I guess EH, the bug eater, thinks she is still on Survivor and has to outdo any younger guest who appears. Today there was a 20 something filling in for Sherry.

And EH told the truth for a change. She tricked her husband into marrying her.

Fire Whoopi and EH! EH needs to apologize also because she, like usual, butted in and announced that she'd cancelled her subscription to the paper!

Whoopi is stupid and must be illiterate. This apology was insincere and she should have admitted it was her error since the article was about RECENT WINNERS, since 2002 WHICH SHE IS NOT! And, hers was just a token award.

IMO all the illegal drugs she recently admitted using on this Disney owned ABC a.m. program have addled her brain and dementia is setting in. She couldn't dress or eat more slovenly and she alludes to using marijuana quite often.

Whoopi is also imo a racist and her unfunny "valley girl" routine proves it as well as her expressions and lack of participation when someone is on that she doesn't like.

Where's KOOKY?    

What I find interesting about all of this is that on Monday, when Whoopi first brought up this issue, she mentioned ONLY that she had been omitted from the article, and didn't mention the others by name. Yet today, during her apology, she managed to include Lou Gossett's and Cuba Gooding's names. So, in essence, she did on Monday TO THEM what the NYT originally did to her.

C'mon, Whoopi! You can't have it both ways!

wtf?    

Goldberg (real name Karen Johnson): An uneducated, untalented, bitter, racist, who has never been clever or funny, who is the recipient of awards she has never deserved. She's so angry over not being mentioned in a newspaper article? Wait until she's diagnosed with cancer after being a life-long smoker. Then she'll REALLY have something to be worried about. And perhaps get her priorities straight. Anyone who can watch The View has to be mentally challenged. Seriously.

Get a Nose Job, please!!!    

Whoopie is ugly, uneducated, mean, bitter and boring. Barbara, you got rid of those other crazy, egomaniac bitches -
Star Jones and Rosie O'Donnell, so fire Whoopie's dumb ass. Hire someone who has at least two brain cells working. While you are at it, get rid of that other silly, never shuts her mouth or listens to anyone else Joy. If you do this, I'll watch again. Thanks.

I read the article and it talks about Halle Berry and Denzel Washigton.

Then it says and I quote "Real change seemed to have come to movies or at least the Academy, which had given statuettes to a total of SEVEN BLACK ACTORS in the previous 73 years. AFTER Mr. Washington and Ms. Berry, there would be Jamie Foxx and Forest Whitaker (both best actors); Morgan Freeman (best supporting actor); Jennifer Hudson and Mo’Nique (best supporting actresses)."

It lists the names AFTER Halle and Denzel won in 2002, NOT before. The very first black recipient was mentioned because she was the very first.

I took it for face value too and agreed that she should be mad for being left out. But if you read the article it is correct. Otherwise they forgot Sidney Poitier, Louis Gossett Jr., and Cuba Gooding Jr too. NOT just her!

THAT is why she apologized, she is wrong and assumed before actually reading it as a whole.

Having said that, I dont understand why they couldnt just list everyone since the article is long anyway. What's 7 more names?

Thanks Kooky - U R right! It's not a "black" thing but a self indulgent, arrogant, spoiled, all about me thing?! Everything I've read on various blogs say the same thing - Not just TMZ - She doesn't get that she came off as an ass because she is one - no mention of anyone who was left off that list but her?!? Get off your high horse, BABWAWA can't save you this time. You are a hateful self absorbed person - period. Don't care what color you are - Jerks come in everyone of them Ms. Goldberg~

Whoopie, You are not very intelligent.
You are ugly.
Once again, just like other times, you are being FORCED
by the network (or Barbara!) to apologize.
Why don't you retire? Does anyone even watch the View?

By the way, what movie was supposed to win the Oscar???? "The Lottery Ticket????" Why don't black producers come out with good movies instead of crap like that???? THEN they will be nominated and win!!

Still I think Whoopi Goldberg is a way much better actor than Halle Berry or whoever, don't make it such a big deal, it's all good.

Lets Be Honest    

How can we leave racism out when she herself is a RACIST ?

Yes W.G. is a well known RACIST and anti-semite which is why she no longer has a career in hollywood.

So she hosts the Oscars about what 15 years ago and rips off every far left/marxist cause in her opening monologue alienating half the country, and they're supposed to be grateful?
