Whoopi Goldberg: ‘Mel Gibson isn’t a racist’
HollywoodNews.com: In a stunning show of support, “The View” co-host Whoopi Goldberg defended Mel Gibson and claims that he isn’t a racist as portrayed in the recent audio tapes that were leaked.
Said Goldberg, “I’ve had a long friendship with Mel. You can say he’s being a bonehead, but I can’t sit and say that he’s a racist, having spent time with him in my house with my kids. I can’t say it.
“I don’t like what he’s done.”
The comedian’s opinion triggered fellow co-host Joy Behar to bring up Gibson’s drunken maledictions against Jews in his Malibu DUI arrest.
Goldberg defended, “Drunks say stupid things to people all the time, because they’re drunk. They’re out of control, they’re idiotic.
“This rant, I don’t think he’s drunk on this rant.”
