ABC Suspended Whoopi Goldberg for Holocaust Remark But Fired Roseanne for Offensive Tweet

Twitter users torched ABC and Disney following the news of Whoopi Goldberg’s two-week suspension over controversial Holocaust remarks by pointing out that both Roseanne Barr and Gina Carano were fired by the media conglomerate over tweets that were deemed offensive. Goldberg was suspended for two weeks earlier this week, days after claiming on ABC’s “The View” that the holocaust was “not about race” drawing immediate criticism from Jewish groups and social media users. Following the suspension, many users on Twitter blasted the network for firing actress and comedian Roseanne Barr over a joke aimed at former Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett that the network deemed racist.
