Whoopi Goldberg is in hot water again. The View co-host reportedly doubled down on the issue that got her suspended on the daytime talk show.

Whoopi Goldberg Reportedly Stands By Her Belief That Holocaust Was Not About Race

In a new interview with The Times of London, Goldberg talked about Holocaust once again and doubled down on her belief that it was not "originally" about race.

"Remember who they were killing first. They were not killing racial; they were killing physical. They were killing people they considered to be mentally defective," she said.

She was also wondering whether Jewish people were a "race" compared to herself as a Black person.

"It doesn't change the fact that you could not tell a Jew on a street," Goldberg said. "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."

However, according to the US Holocaust Memorial Museum, the Nazis defined Jewish people as a race and killed six million people in an effort to purge them from the population.

When asked about the Nazis classifying the Jewish people as a race, she argued that it was what "the oppressor is telling you what you are."

"Why are you believing them? They're Nazis. Why believe what they're saying?" she added.

Whoopi Goldberg Got Suspended For Saying Holocaust Was Not About Race

In February, Goldberg was suspended for two weeks for her comments on the Jan. 31 episode, where she claimed that Holocaust was not about race but rather about man's inhumanity. She returned to the View following the suspension.

"I want to thank everybody who reached out while I was away," Goldberg said at the opening of Monday's show when she reunited with her co-hosts without telling who reached out to her, PBS reported.

"I'm telling you, people reached out from places that made me go, 'wait, wait, what? Really? OK. I listened to what everybody was saying and I was grateful."

Jewish leaders criticized her initial statement, noting that the Nazi leader, Adolf Hitler, criticized Jews as an inferior race. She had apologized online the night she made her controversial remark.

"Yes, I am back," Goldberg said when she took the stage after a 2-week suspension. "There is something kind of marvelous about being on a show like this because we are The View and this is what we do."

"Sometimes we don't do it as elegantly as we could. But it's five minutes to get in information about topics and that's what we try to do everyday."
