I've always disliked Whoopi Goldberg more than was probably reasonable. Like many of the other Comic Relief folks (Robin Williams, Billy Crystal, etc.), she always seems to be her biggest fan and generally...not very funny.
THIS doesn't help.
Whoopi Goldberg used her first day on the daytime chat show Tuesday to defend football star Michael Vick in his dogfighting case.
Goldberg said that "from where he comes from" in the South, dogfighting isn't that unusual.
"It's like cockfighting in Puerto Rico," she said. "There are certain things that are indicative to certain parts of the country."
Uh...yes, and in other parts of the world, women are second-class citizens and people of certain races are treated horribly. But we don't excuse that here, we deplore it. It's hard to understand why she'd say this or want to make an excuse for him. Whatever the reason, she's a dumb, stupid twit.
