Once again on The View, Whoopi Goldberg was forced to defend herself against fake news. According to Goldberg, early Tuesday morning a Photoshopped picture of her came out in which she’s wearing a shirt with a vulgar message on it for President Trump.
The photo was taken at the Women’s March in January, at which Goldberg wore a shirt with the words: “AND YOU THOUGHT I WAS A NASTY WOMAN BEFORE? BUCKLE UP, BUTTERCUP.” In the Photoshopped picture, the shirt reads, “make AMERICA great again.” The image accompanying Trump’s campaign slogan was blurred out in the pic shown on The View.
“I need to clear up a lie that was posted online this morning. A photo of me at the Women’s March has been Photoshopped to show me wearing an offensive shirt against you know who,” Goldberg said. “Even though I don’t care for this man, I would never wear the shirt that’s there.”
Goldberg also had words for whoever Photoshopped the image in the first place.
“If you like that, if you feel like the sentiments like the sentiments on that shirt, grow a pair and you wear it. But don’t put it on me,” Goldberg said. She later added: “Every day, half the country despises me, half the country loves me. But you know what? I stand up. You see my face. Don’t put stuff on me that I haven’t done.”
