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.

Barbara is losing any credibility she has left if she allows Whoopi, Joy, Sherri and Elisabeth to remain on that show. Each one of them tries to "hijack" it when she is not there.

This is the last straw. Whoopi looks especially STUPID (purposely using this word that she claims to hate) but then we do have to remember her lack of even a high school diploma and extensive ILLEGAL DRUG USE which, taken together, might explain her uncalled for rant, especially since she sounds and acts high at least half the time and is FREQUENTLY ABSENT.

Elisabeth really is DUMBER and she claims to have a college degree. She apparantly didn't read the article either and then announced on national tv that she'd cancelled her subscription to the paper. Barbara Walters, former journalist, must not allow this type of behavior to continue. There is a long pattern of unprofessionalism on this show and it needs to end.

EH should be made to apologize to the NY Times and also to Bill Maher! Then, she should be given her termination notice along with all the others.

Get a Nose Job, please!!!    

Why does Whoopie dress like a Homeless Person? How old is she? How much money does she make? Has she ever been married? I guess if you don't even graduate from High School and are the ugliest woman in the world, you are mean and bitter and dumb as a rock. Barbara, you must be getting senile to keep those awful women on The View. Attractive, smart women have Views, too. Hire them and your audience will greatly increase.

I didn't see the show today, however I did see the clip and I really don't think it was a sincere enough apology. Whoopi put her foot in her mouth with her rant & an apology was indeed warranted, however Elizabeth too should apologize as well as Barbara because she was the one that had the paper in her hand and brought up the subject. So all 3 should have read the article more clearly. Also I too find it silly that she tried to include a couple of other black actors in her so-called apology when there was no concern for them, just herself, in her original rant.

And oh yeah, Elizabeth's childish remarks toward Bill Maher were sooo elementary. I notice she had nothing else to say after he addressed them.

Corey Haim wasn't mentioned in the Screen Actors Guild Award show as being one of the actors that died in 2010. I consider that much more important. He was a good actor recognized by critics but not Hollywood.

Bill Maher is the biggest A-Hole in the Country. His Crazy Viewpoints reveal how Stupid he is. He is so ugly and dumb, he has to make outrageous comments to get noticed. Poor Silly Guy!

Sheila Shigley, you are the ghetto b***ch. Whoopie just recently did a movie where she got rave reviews. She is doing a lot of things. Just because you don't get out much the world still revolves without you. You are just a racist that is jealous of Whoopie. As ugly as you think she is, she is still in more demand than you are. All you can do is sit behind you computer like all other racist and complain about another person. Any by the way just because many on here don't like the View of the women on there, it is still a successful show, obviously because after 14 years it is still on the air. hahahaha
