Whoopi Goldberg made her debut today as the new co-host of "The View." Just 15 minutes into her new gig, Whoopi defended Michael Vick. Ruh roh! Just like Jamie Foxx, Whoopi seemed to think that Vick was naive and blamed his background for his actions.
"You know from his background this is not an unusual thing for where he comes from," said Goldberg."There are certain things that are indicative to certain parts of our country."Co-host Joy Behar seemed shocked at Goldberg's statements."How about dog torture and dog murdering," Behar asked."Unfortunately it's part of the thing," Goldberg replied."You're a dog lover. For a lot of people dogs are sport," she added.Behar continued to shake her head in disgust.Goldberg said it seemed to her that it took a while for Vick to realize that the charges against him were serious. "It seemed like a light went off in his head when he realized that this was something the entire country really didn't appreciated, didn't like," Goldberg said, referring to Vick's guilty plea.She said if the case had involved somebody from New York City her feelings would have been different. Goldberg pointed out that Vick was raised in the South. "This is part of his cultural upbringing," said Goldberg.
I just don't get this whole theory that Michael Vick seemed to think what he was doing was normal and okay. She wouldn't be saying this if the bitch killed a person. I mean some of us grew up surrounded by drugs and violence and we took the high road. We knew that shit was bad.
People need to stop defending his ass! What he did was wrong, end of fucking story.
I mean I grew up around sluts and well…um…bad example.
