Rosie O’ Donnell Ready To Quit Because Of Whoopi?
From her comments on the Bill Cosby rape scandal to her crazy views on race, Whoopi Goldberg has been making a lot of questionable statements lately and one person has had enough. According to reports, Rosie O’ Donnell is over it. During a recent episode of “The View,” with “OITHNB” star Laverne Cox as guest host, Rosie and Whoopi got into it…again!
“Listen, you are a white lady telling me what is racist to you, which is fine,” Whoopi said. “I’m a gay-American that has been called a dyke,” Rosie responded to which Whoopi coldly retorted, “It’s not the same.”
Rosie, taken aback by Whoopi’s statement, added, “I have a black kid I raise, Whoopi. I have a black kid in my house.” Goldberg repeated, “It’s not the same.”
The feud only escalated from there.
“You don’t have to be black to know what racism is,” Rosie said. “Yes you do,” Whoopi responded. When it was all over, a source claims producers suggested using a split screen to show Goldberg and O’ Donnell at the same time. According to reports, she “went absolutely ballistic, pointing out that was the reason she had quit the first time. Racism is a very serious subject, and Rosie felt that the staff of the show was trying to exploit it for ratings.” O’ Donnell allegedly threatened to “walk out” again.
We have a feeling Rosie won’t be sticking around to deal with Whoopi’s shenanigans much longer.
