INSUFFERABLE: Whoopi Goldberg Calls Herself As A “Slave” Despite Making $5 Million A Year On The View…
This continued pattern of victimization among the celebrity/multimillionaire African-American elite, seems to be a growing trend.
First it was First Lady Michelle Obama who hinted that she felt discriminated while shopping, then it was daytime diva Oprah Winfrey’s disparaging racial remarks, and then of course the recent dust-up with the Academy Awards.
Now we have Whoopi Goldberg referencing herself as a “slave”, because she only makes $5-MILLION DOLLARS, a year for sitting around a coffee table and talking trash…which by almost all standards a pretty sweet gig.
Moreover Whoopi is reportedly displaying “antagonistic” behavior behind the set of The View, with some believing the actress is hoping to perhaps get the hook, as in getting the boot, fired or discharged…take your pick!
The 60-year-old Goldberg leads the show’s panel, but the comedienne is said to be “at war with the management,” and that she is not putting in a lot of effort in her work nowadays.
The actress is in her final year of her contract, and caused some controversy when she referenced herself as a “slave” saying;
“I’s a work for ABC, who is my master. I’s a slave to ABC. I’s ’12 Years a Whoopi’ at ABC,” referring to the film 12 Years a Slave.
Perhaps the fact “The View” no longer commands a high market share of the day-time audience, which is prompting ABC to make some changes with two of their co-hosts. In short the entertainment industry like all businesses thrives on profit and loss… regardless of race, if you no longer produce, you get replaced, in short say goodnight Whoopi!
