Actress, Comedian and co-host of ABC’s The View, Whoopi Goldberg defended actor Mel Gibson’s recent rants during the taping of The View today by simply saying,
“I don’t like what he did here, but I know Mel and I know he’s not a racist,” Goldberg told unconvinced co-host Joy Behar.
“I have had a long friendship with Mel,” the actress-comedian stated. “You can say he’s being a bonehead, but I can’t sit and say that he’s a racist, having spent time with him in my house with my kids. … I don’t like what he’s done. Make no mistake.”
When challenged by Behar and reminded of Gibson’s infamous anti-Semitic rant, Goldberg blamed the past problems on booze, but added that she believed he was a sober bonehead this time.
“This rant, I don’t think he’s drunk on this rant,” Goldberg admitted.
