As we reported earlier, Whoopi Goldberg has felt slighted by the omission of her Oscar in an article written for the New York Times.
And she's still super pissed about it, even though there have been two sets of explanations sent out for the lack of Whoopi lurve.
Here's one about the author herself:
"And Dargis emailed the New York Observer and defended her article. Dargis said that the "main focus" of the piece was what has happened since Denzel Washington and Halle Berry won Oscars in 2002."
Dargis said specifically:
"It's a shame that Ms. Goldberg and her co-hosts opted to concentrate on a perceived slight rather than address a far more urgent issue: the lack of racial diversity in contemporary American cinema."
Whoopi, in response, said:
"You shouldn't have to read a story five times to get the meaning. It's an erasure. I've made 50 movies, and no mention?"
While we understand the basic issue here, we def think it's time to move on. The explanations given do make sense, and it seems like they didn't mean it as a slight against Whoopi specifically!
Whoopi, bb, let's get past this and move on to the next topic for the View!!
