Piers Morgan has called for Whoopi Goldberg to lose her job on The View over her comment on the Holocaust and has compared it to Sharon Osbourne losing her job on The Talk

The TV presenter, who recently made a bizarre tribute to Pamela Anderson, has taken to Twitter and questioned whether ‘woke stars get a pass’.

Referencing Goldberg’s comment, for which she has now apologised, he tweeted: ‘WTF? This is insane. The extermination of 6million Jews wasn’t about race?

“Will any rock stars or renegade royals now boycott Whoopi Goldberg and/or ABC for this dangerous misinformation?”

The 56-year-old continued: “Sharon Osbourne was fired from The Talk for defending me against a fake charge of racism.

“Whoopi Goldberg said on The View yesterday that the Holocaust ‘wasn’t about race’, which for Jewish people is about as racist a comment as anyone could make. Bet she doesn’t lose her job.

“What Whoopi Goldberg said was far worse than anything Joe Rogan said – will celebrities be boycotting The View or do woke stars get a pass?”

Morgan finished off his rant by saying: “Sharon Osbourne didn’t do or say anything wrong, was bullied into numerous apologies, and still got fired for defending me over false racism claims.

“Just as I got forced out of my job for refusing to believe Meghan Markle’s lies. The double standard is laughable.”

The backlash against Goldberg all started after she said that the Holocaust ‘wasn’t about a race’.

When appearing on The View, she argued: “The minute you turn it into race, it goes down this alley. Let’s talk about it for what it is. It’s how people treat each other. It’s a problem.

“It doesn’t matter if you are black or white because black, white, Jews, Italians – everybody eats each other.”
