Whoopi Goldberg is apologizing for reiterating comments made about Jewish people and the Holocaust, saying she was not “doubling down” on her beliefs.

“It was never my intention to appear as if I was doubling down on hurtful comments, especially after talking with and hearing people like rabbis and old and new friends weighing in,” Goldberg said in a statement to Rolling Stone. “My sincere apologies again, especially to everyone who thought this was a fresh rehash of the subject. I promise it was not.”

“I’m still learning a lot and believe me, I heard everything everyone said to me. I believe that the Holocaust was about race, and I am still as sorry now as I was then that I upset, hurt, and angered people,” The View host added. “I want to be very clear when I say that I always stood with the Jewish people and always will. My support for them has not wavered and never will.”

In a recent interview, Goldberg claimed again that the Holocaust was not about the Jewish people being targeted due to race.

“Remember who they were killing first. They were not killing racial; they were killing physical. They were killing people they considered to be mentally defective,” Goldberg told the Sunday Times.

Earlier this year, Goldberg called the Nazis and Jewish people “two white groups of people” during a discussion about the Holocaust on The View. At the time, Goldberg was suspended for two weeks from the show.

Goldberg’s latest comments have drawn the ire of many online, including Anti-Defamation League CEO Jonathan Greenblatt.

Greenblatt condemned Goldberg’s recent interview comments, tweeting: “Yet again, #WhoopiGoldberg’s comments about the Holocaust and race are deeply offensive and incredibly ignorant. When she made similar comments earlier this year, we explained how the Nazi regime was inherently racist.”
