One tried to explain why it was different, writing, “Whoopi admitted she was wrong immediately. She apologized just as quickly. There is also the fact that White Supremacists argue over whether they inclusive or exclusive of certain groups of people”.
Another wrote, “If you’re not a narcissist and have the ability to correct yourself, admit mistakes, and offer sincere apology people tend to forgive missteps.”
Yet another brought up Donald Trump, tweeting, “There’s a big difference between downplaying [and] mischaracterizing. But you’d need to have paid attention in school to understand what that difference is. Your pop could take a lesson or two from Whoopi on how to properly own a mistake and apologize!”
Others were in agreement with Trump Jr. “Rosanne was the creator and face of the show and none of her co-actors stood for her!! She lost it all!! The View and like types get passes, daily!!!” one wrote.
While another tweeted “How to not get canceled; 1. Claim you were misunderstood 2. Profess ignorance 3. Placate by having an expert discuss the importance of the issue you minimized 4. Have a long history of leftist views 5. Immediately launch into an antiTrump story Rinse … repeat”
Goldberg apologized later in the day via Twitter. And the next day on “The View,” Goldberg apologized again as well as sat down for an interview with Anti-Defamation League CEO Jonathan Greenblatt, who outlined why her comments were in the wrong (via KESQ).
