WHOOPI Goldberg could be getting ready to take on a new view.

The comedian has announced a successful side venture that could counter her responsibilities on The View.

Whoopi, 67, has just rereleased the sixth book in her popular children’s series Sugar Plum Ballerinas.

Sharing the news on social media, Whoopi plugged: “The last two rereleased books of my Sugar Plum Ballerinas series are available now.”

The books, aimed at girls four to eight years old, tell the story of young dancers at the Nutcracker School of Ballet in Harlem.

In an Instagram video, Whoopi unboxed a shipment of her books, while explaining her inspiraion.

“I want everybody to know about them because, you know, they’re great stories for girls, and they’re fun.

“They are to do with all these little brown girls and light-skinned girls and all these girls who want to, you know, they want to be scientists and they want to be doctors and stuff and their moms want them to be ballerinas.

“So they all become friends because they’re trying to appease their mothers. And who hasn’t tried to do that?”


Whoopi may soon be focusing more on her writing, especially if fans get their wish and she is fired from The View following comments she has made about the Jewish community and other groups.

During a new interview with The Times, EGOT winner spoke about her new film Till, as well as her upbringing and the #MeToo movement.

However, what seems to have angered readers the most are her recent comments about Jewish people.

Last year, Whoopi was suspended from The View for two weeks because of what network ABC called her “wrong and hurtful comments” about Jewish people and the Holocaust.

During a discussion about the anti-Nazi graphic novel Maus, Whoopi claimed that the Holocaust was not “about race” but “white on white” violence and “man’s inhumanity to man.”

More recently, in her interview with The Times, Whoopi raised the topic again and alluded that Jewish people themselves are divided about whether they are a race or a religion.

“My best friend said, ‘Not for nothing is there no box on the census for the Jewish race. So that leads me to believe that we’re probably not a race’,” she said.

When the interviewer pointed out that Nazis saw Jews as a race, Whoopi responded: “Yes, but that’s the killer, isn’t it? The oppressor is telling you what you are. Why are you believing them? They’re Nazis. Why believe what they’re saying?”

When she was told that Nazis used to measure the heads and noses of Jews to “prove” they were a distinct race, Whoopi continued: “They did that to black people too. But it doesn’t change the fact that you could not tell a Jew on a street.

“You could find me. You couldn’t find them. That was the point I was making. But you would have thought that I’d taken a big old stinky dump on the table, butt naked,” she added.


Many people have been left offended by Whoopi’s latest comments and took to Twitter to blast her.

One person wrote: “@TheView Whoopi Goldberg has repeated her slur that got her suspended from your show.

“So now it’s time to make that suspension permanent. She clearly learned nothing from her hateful rhetoric. #disgusted.”

Another follower fumed: “Here Whoopi Goldberg goes again talking about ABC & the Jews! When will she learn. She needs to be banned from TV all together nobody wants to listen to her BS.”

A third claimed: “@TheView bringing American TV viewers their daily dose of racism. #Holocaust #WhoopiGoldberg #racism.”

And a fourth Twitter user posted: “@ABC It’s obvious Whoopi didn’t misspeak before and is a racist with some absolutely wild beliefs. It’s time for her to be fired. #firewhoopi #WhoopiGoldberg.”
