Whoopi Goldberg is known for the ferocity in which she expresses her opinions, but when asked about sexual harassment she transformed into a shrinking violent right before your eyes… well, ears in this case.
Do tell, Whoopi. Have there been aggressive suitors in your past? Or, pray tell, could there be skeletons hiding in the closet? Now’s not the time to be holding your tongue!
Asked during an interview last week with iHeartRadio’s Domenick Nati if she’s ever experienced sexually harassment in her career, Whoopi responded with a curt, “No, honey.”
And that’s when her publicist jumped in like a rabid pitbull to bring things to a screeching halt.
Whoopi was plugging her new line of “ugly” high-end Christmas sweaters and the publicist was adamant that the focus remain there.
“I’m just going to jump in and let you know we’re going to focus on the ugly sweaters,” she said in no uncertain terms whatsoever.
After giving her choice of words some thought, the publicist quickly added, “Focus on the sweater line, please… as I warned you before the call.”
All the while, Whoopi was quiet as a church mouse.
When Nati questions whether they can discuss current events, the interview comes to an abrupt halt.
In the wake of the Harvey Weinstein sexual abuse scandal that rocked Hollyweird to its core, revelations of inappropriate behavior by powerful directors and A-list actors are coming out almost daily.
The hypocrisy not lost on those living in glass houses who are quick to cast stones at others, such as “Star Trek” actor George Takei.
The actor was yukking it up with Howard Stern about using force to “persuade” young men who are “afraid” into having sex, even as he condemned President Donald Trump for bragging about grabbing p*ssies.
…until Takei was hit with a claim he sexually assaulted a young model in the 1980s.
