WATCH: Whoopi Forced to Make Embarassing Apology after Setting Off Wokies with Supposed “Slur”

Recently, Whoopi Goldberg, the washed up American actress and television personality, made headlines for using the term ‘gypped’ on ‘The View.’ Her use of the term sparked controversy and backlash from viewers, who pointed out that the term is a racial slur often used against the Romani community.

As a result, Goldberg issued a public apology in the form of a video message, expressing regret for the insensitive remark. Fox News reports she said:

“You know when you’re a certain age you use words that you know from when you’re a kid or you remember saying, and that’s what I did today and I shouldn’t have, I should have thought about it a little longer before I said it. But I didn’t and I should have said ‘cheated,’ but I used another word and I’m really, really sorry,” Goldberg said in the video. 

In the video, Goldberg acknowledged that she had used the term ‘gypped’ in a recent episode of ‘The View’ and that she had received a lot of feedback from viewers who claim that the term is derogatory and offensive. She went on to explain that she had no idea that the term was considered a slur, and that she had used it in ignorance. Typical woke person apologizing to the even woker.

So, Goldberg had to apologize to the Romani community, all five of them, for the “incentive” remark. As background, Goldberg’s comment came when she was discussing Trump’s Stormy Daniels situation, saying:

“The people who still believe that he got, you know, gypped somehow, will still believe that he cared enough… about his wife to pay that money from his personal thing. I just don’t understand. If that was the case, then why all the subterfuge? Why is Michael Cohen paying for it?”

The “gypped” incident is somewhat reminiscent of when Georgia Democrat Rep. Hank Johnson had to apologize to Congress after he used the word “midget” and the wokies of the day got upset. Politico, reporting on that hilarious incident, said:

Rep. Hank Johnson (D-Ga.) wants everyone to know he’s sincerely sorry for using the word “midget” on the House floor this week.

He didn’t know that the term could be offensive. So when he went on the House floor Wednesday and used a “giants” vs. “midgets” analogy to decry Michigan’s new right-to-work law, Johnson had no clue the outrage he would spur.

“I was thinking to myself earlier today, what happens when you put in a cage fight a giant with a midget?” Johnson said then. “Well, the midget will not win the fight. I’m going to tell you that. Why? He just doesn’t carry enough weight to do so. But if you put 30 midgets in with that giant, then the midgets have a chance.”

Not even 24 hours later, Johnson took to the House floor again to express his contrition.

“I had never heard of the m word … it’s a word also that describes a group of people and it, at one time, has been commonly used as a descriptive term,” Johnson said Thursday afternoon. “But to my discovery, just within the last 12 hours or so, I have found that the use of the ‘midget’ — oh, excuse me, the use of the m word — is no longer socially acceptable.”

He likened his use of the “m word” to the once-common use of the “n word,” which Johnson noted used to be “socially acceptable” but is no longer.
