Dear Whoopi Goldberg,Now will someone please come over and take channel 6 off of my TV so I will never accidentally watch The (horrible, awful, offensive) View again?
I have watched The View all of twice in the last couple of months. The first time, I saw this:
The second time was this morning, about 3 minutes ago, when you were talking about the 15 year old who was gang raped in front of a crowd, and how no one did anything. It was so recent, it's not on YouTube yet, but, Whoopi, you basically said, "What is the matter with people?"
Maybe the "matter" is that IDIOTS LIKE YOURSELF ARE ON TELEVISION EXCUSING RAPISTS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I'm not saying that moron celebrities like yourself who think there should be one set of rules for the famous, and another set of rules for the rest of us, are directly responsible for what happened to the 15 year old rape victim, but your failure to show an appropriate amount of outrage, disgust, and contempt for Roman Polanski's rape of a 13 year old girl, and a group's failure to intervene in the rape of a 15 year old girl are symptoms of the same disease in our culture - our failure to value girls and women and their safety, and our failure to recognize the heinous nature of rape and other sexual assaults.
Maybe if people like you hadn't been on TV making excuses for rapists since time immemorial, people would've acted.
Or maybe the crowd in the gang rape situation just figured that the perpetrators had horrible childhoods and would go on to make great art, and therefore the rules didn't apply to those perpetrators.
How dare you sit there and say, "What is wrong with people?" when YOU and your recent statements are part of the problem?

An Open Letter to Whoopi Goldberg
My frigging head is about to fly right off my shoulders and I have to get this off my chest.
