Here’s what Fox News reported:
“The View” co-host Whoopi Goldberg taped an apology video on Wednesday for using the word “gypped” during the show, saying she should have used another term.
Goldberg and her fellow co-hosts were discussing possible criminal charges against former President Donald Trump in the alleged hush money scandal involving Stormy Daniels.
“You know when you’re a certain age you use words that you know from when you’re a kid or you remember saying, and that’s what I did today and I shouldn’t have, I should have thought about it a little longer before I said it. But I didn’t and I should have said ‘cheated,’ but I used another word and I’m really, really sorry,” Goldberg said in the video.
Goldberg used the word “gypped” while discussing the Daniels case. It’s a longtime slang term for being cheated or swindled, but is viewed as a slur by some because of its association with “Gypsies.”
