Goldberg also reportedly countered the journalist’s point that race can be more than just skin color, giving the example of how Nazis measured Jewish people’s facial features to “prove” they were an actual race.
“They did that to Black people too,” she argued. “But it doesn’t change the fact that you could not tell a Jew on a street. You could find me. You couldn’t find them. That was the point I was making.”
Greenblatt, the CEO of the Anti-Defamation League who previously accepted Goldberg’s February apology, spoke out to denounce the Till star’s latest remarks, calling them “deeply offensive.”
“Whoopi Goldberg’s comments about the Holocaust and race are incredibly disappointing, especially given that this is not the first time she had made remarks like this,” he said in a statement to The Wrap on Dec. 27. “In a moment when antisemitic incidents have surged across the US, she should realize that making such ignorant statements can have real consequences.”
