    It is so absurd that we can't even use words to report on what words were said in a story. We are recessing. We are a nation of toddlers.

      I could see if the woman had a rant and curse her seat mates out in rage and they dismissed her, but they made that an issue by how they handles her having a moment talking about the Artist! Wrong audience and timing to say that to squares!

    Whoopi is right. It’s great to hear her finally address what happened, even if only a little bit. Nobody is perfect. Everyone deserves the chance to make mistakes, learn, and grow from them.

      The majority of the time the mistake is not the person that speaks, it is the person spoken to and their interpretation and response. Society cannot fix this its part of humanity. This argument about people must learn to speak correctly to not offend someone is not the problem. It is the person misinterpreting and going on the defensive immediately. We are treading waters we should not be.

    YESSS, WHOOPI! My sentiments (exactly)! Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU for what you said! I am not saying what the reporter did was absolutely perfectly fine but I feel that it is almost at the point where I just want to stay totally quiet out in public and not say a peep to anyone because something I say may offend someone! But then again, somebody will find offense I didn't want to talk to them, as well. Smh! Good God, have mercy on us all! Oh no! There I go again offending someone!!!

    Thank you Whoopi. I totally agree. I am about the same age as Whoopi and I had never heard that term before and had no idea what the woman did wrong. How are we suppose to learn unless someone tells us? I was curious to know what the term was and what it meant. She may not even know either. Instead of just throwing someone out, let them explain and educate them and the rest of us so we don’t make the same mistakes. There is no “guide” as to what can or cannot be said. There is always a chance of offending someone somewhere and it seems to change daily. If you don’t like someone’s language they use, don’t listen.

    Woah! This story is timely considering my current situation. I was working on a film set in Bainbridge, Georgia when, as I drove some of the actors to the set) I made a comment about my past that was (agreeably) inappropriate. Let's just say what I said delt with harassment/staking (and I'm leaving it there) When I got to the set, both the director and producer (both women) told me I made a bunch of people feel uncomfortable and they told me to leave. They never fully explain why I was being fired. Also, when I tried to apologize, they never returned my emails and calls to make amends. I have autism (not using that as an excuse for what I said or did) and sometimes, I don't watch what I say. I have a therapist who I'm working with to help me with social cues but I would say the film group was a little too harsh in their punishment. We all are human and we all make mistakes. We were all born in the 20th/21st century and grew up with these issues; not future people judging a past society.

  • Katie G

    This makes me feel just a tad better that I’ve been fired from literally every job I’ve had due to my physical HEALTH- from calling out some days to most recently, my dizziness being confused as intoxication and the med I took 12 hours prior still showed up in a UA but was NOT active. Still so angry about that. They blame it on my character and competence. It’s such a blow to continue trying.

  • Armaunda Armstrong
    Armaunda Armstrong 2 months ago +1

    I've recently been saying that this "cancel culture" is at times a lil extreme. Sometimes it needs to be a teachable moment for ppl. In my opinion, it can be overkill to ruin someone's entire career over a mistake which probably creates some confusion & resentment. Instead they need to be told why its insensitive & hurtful to certain ppl. Some may see it as very offensive so they need to be educated. But, everthing said doesn't offend everybody. So, some ppl might be confused about whats acceptable to say. And, I have to agree with Whoppi. On the otherhand, their are ppl in certain roles of power who may express their beliefs to exercise prejudices against other races. Now that must always be canceled because its racism. But, some ppl live their life in a bubble and certain things may need to be explained. Also, all companies need to offer sensitivity training to its employees. Let's just use common sense and help each other to understand why certain words are hurtful to some ppl.

    I am in my in 6oths, my older brother is intellectually disable, that term has changed at least 3 different times in my life time. Whoopi is right very welmeaning people who would never want to offend anyone have been ripped apart for saying something wrong they didn't know was wrong because of changing terms. Let's just start with being kinder to each other.

    Just wanna say that the term “grand mammy” has a vastly different meaning in Mississippi than it does in other places. I’m white in Mississippi and that’s genuinely a term we all use for our grandmothers or to reference other peoples grandmothers. It isn’t a reference to the “mammy” stereotype, a lot of Irish and Scottish people who came here also used mammy commonly. It’s just worth mentioning that in some places the vernacular has different meanings and connotations than it does elsewhere. The other thing she said obviously has racial connotations regardless of whether or not she realizes it (I’m sure she did realize it and just thought she could get away with it)

    I always knew what those words meant, but I didn't know that one could get fired for saying it. Most people just sing the lyrics when the song is playing and doesn't know what it means. However, if I hear certain kind of words from my nieces/nephews or if I hear certain lyrics and I don't understand what they mean I go straight to the Urban Dictionary to get the meaning. I recommend it.

    This is one of the rare times I can agree with the View. I also had no idea that word was a slur...(I had to look up what she said) I thought it was just some quirky rhyme.
    It seems to me it would have been better to just tell her on the air it was not an appropriate thing to say and move on. Sure, she might be a bit embarrassed, but better than getting fired and being treated like she's a bad person.
    There are plenty of people saying and much worse, doing horrible things without going after stuff like this.
    I'm pretty sure we have all said something out of ignorance. I know I have, and thankfully people just educated me instead of calling for my head. The current era of outrage is terrible.

    I think Alyssa made a point here… you can enjoy the music but just understand that all the slangs and catch phrases may not be for you. Certain folks can’t stand to fathom that something was not made specifically for them but it should be no surprise that you can’t say every lyric of a rap song on morning television. Just be yourselves without trying to “keep up” or be hip.

      Artists, especially in the music industry KNOW that their content is sold to a GLOBAL audience. Snoop and others are under no illusion that their music is only (or even primarily) consumed by people who understand the history and context of the lyrics. Kids in Malaysia and Egypt are supposed to understand that the lyrics in songs that are sold to them, aren't for them to ever repeat? Please.

    We live in a society that demands absolute perfection. If you dare to make a single mistake these days, your career is fucked for life. No matter how much you’re able to learn or grow from your mistakes, whether it’s on social media or at school or work, no one can forgive you or even commend your ability to learn and grow.

    Context matters: If you watch the clip of the news anchor there were several people joking about her being hip/cool and one anchor said she's gonna show up with a snoop dogg tattoo so she then replied "fo shizzle, my nizzle". It was not malicious in any way and while it's super cringe to see a white lady in the south make that comment not many people are aware of what that actually means.
    I don't think it takes much effort to not say something racist/anti-semetic. But I think we also do need to be more graceful to those who are just ignorant of racially insensitive comments. The ignorant can be educated and that's how we grow and become better. If you have educated someone on this and they still persist then that's no longer them being ignorant, they are choosing to be hurtful. I don't think her intention was to be hurtful and I don't think she should be fired over being ignorant on the meaning of the lyric.

It also depends on who says it and what type of relationship you have. I have White friends who quote Black songs and I'm ok with them because of our relationship. Depends on the person.

    Whoopie's suggestion of having a book of "Things NOT to say" reminds me of a book I found (and purchased) back in 1984 to learn "everyday Spanish" because I was traveling to Colombia, South America for a Girl Scout Wider Opportunity and hadn't taken Spanish EVER, especially in high school. The book offered everyday Spanish words, phrases, etc BUT the LAST CHAPTER was titled "Words and Phrases NOT to say" in Spanish. It was PERFECT!! Of course, as a 17-year-old Gringa working and socializing in Colombia with my sister scouts (and leaders) we had a lot of fun with that chapter.

    It is ever changing…. 10 years ago a black friend corrected me for saying African American and made it clear black people want to be called black. I immediately changed my vocabulary. However, deep down saying black has been a challenge for me because gen X was brought up being taught to NEVER refer to a person as black and to say African-American. My point…. Vocabulary is ever changing. It is important that we honor the people of color in our lives and to do our best to say the right thing in the right era. It is also important that we allow the people of color in our lives to correct us and teach us always and if we are unsure… Reach out to your friends of color and ask for clarification. Also, if someone is well intended and just doesn’t know connotation has changed… Allow them the chance to LEARN. Don’t be a jerk! Young people… I PROMISE you as you age proper vocabulary will change for you to. And you will think one day you are being respectful with your language and be confused when you are corrected. Some grace folks… ✌️

      In regards to the African American statement,’any people often default to "African American" out of a desire for either political correctness or politeness, however, there are black people in every continent who are all over the world. African American is nation-specific. We are typically talking about black people who are born in the United States. Persons like myself who were not born in America, but I’d currently living in the states don’t necessarily identify as African Americans. Black is the overarching umbrella term that would be more applicable.

    Don't let the fact that Snoop Dogg himself has straight-up said that's not what that means. Do not let the facts get in the way of a great argument ever. Everybody has been singing that song that's my age. It doesn't mean that.

      @jennyj5628 Fo shizzle my nizzle is a slang way to say “for sure, my friend.” It was popularized as a catchphrase of the rapper Snoop Dogg and is meant as a playful way to express affirmation.

    Has anyone watched cable television lately???!!!! You can say all kinds of things now on television that was "not allowed" back in "my day." But here we are....concentrating on words that to be honest are "made up" because "I concur with you my black brother" was not hip or flowed off the tongue lyrically. I am a bi-racial (so black) woman who was born in '70 raised up in the '80/'90s and now in 2000s having to re-calibrate (basically code switching) how I express myself because folks (to Whoopi's point) have designated it as offensive. We know what the offensive words are...dont we? The hateful words born out of slavery, racism, oppression and I doubt that "for shizzle my nizzle" is in the least comparable. Now, the "mammy" comment may strike something in folks (such as myself) as micro-aggressive but I am curious if the person who this was said to was offended when it was said or if it is being brought up because of this occurrence? It's so frustrating....

      @sharon trujillo 7793 context does matter but we are getting to a stage where context is not even being given consideration. I had a white friend with curly hair say to me one time speaking about herself " Girl please, I have gigaboo curls.." I checked her politely because she was a friend. I educated her as gently as I could because I understood her context but it was an insensitive and it triggered me. I don't think that "fo swizzle my nizzle" stands up the same. But hey I don't know lady but I don't think she needs to lose her job. Next thing you know if we are punishing her Snoop Doggs song is next...then Dr Dre, Public Enemy, etc.

    Yes, I do agree with Whoppi nevertheless, it’s getting ridiculous, you got to watch what you say, how you say it, and every second. People either want to sue you, or shame you publicly and destroy your career plus getting money 💴 from you, duh 🙄 their every intention from the get go anyway 🤷🏼‍♀️
