Whoopi Goldberg slammed for saying Holocaust is "not about race"


US talk show host Whoopi Goldberg has offered her “sincerest apologies” after saying the Holocaust “isn’t about race”.

The View presenter said Jewish people around the world have “always had my support” in a statement following a backlash to her remarks online.

Goldberg, who co-hosts The View on ABC, said the historic atrocity was about “man’s inhumanity to man”.

She made the comments on the show during a discussion about a Tennessee school board’s decision to ban Pulitzer prize-winning Holocaust graphic novel Maus.
