Whoopi Goldberg is definitely getting thrown a lot of punches right now.
After she made offensive comments about the Holocaust, Whoopi was placed on suspension for two weeks from “The View,” and she’s facing an avalanche of criticism.
And to make matters worse, there are some staffers at ABC who reportedly want to see her fired for this.
But if Whoopi thought the worst of it was over, she was sadly mistaken. Her past has come back to haunt her, thanks to a chicken recipe of all things.
Back in 1993, Whoopi contributed to a cookbook with a racist recipe titled “Jewish American Princess Fried Chicken.”
The recipe was criticized by the Anti-Defamation League, who called it “insulting” and “Anti-Semitic.”
The New York Post reported that the talk show host wrote the recipe in 1993 for the charity cookbook “Cooking in the Litchfield Hills.”
The outlet obtained a copy of the book that contained instructions to cook dishes such as Diane Sawyer’s “roasted potato skins with scallion dip” and Eartha Kitt’s “summer zucchini soup with nasturtium blossoms.”
According to the book, the page for Goldberg’s dish included some unfortunate humor.
“Send chauffeur to your favorite butcher shop for the chicken (save the brown paper bag).”
“Have your cook 1) Melt equal parts oil and butter 3/4 deep in skillet over moderate heat.
“2) Put flour, seasoned with remaining ingredients, into brown paper bag. 3) Rinse chicken parts and place in bag,” the recipe said.
“Then you tightly close top of bag (watch your nails) and shake 10 times,” she wrote. “Hand bag to Cook, go dress for dinner. While you dress, have Cook preheat oven to 350 degrees and brown chicken slowly in skillet. When evenly browned, have Cook place chicken in dish in oven. Have Cook prepare rest of meal while you touch up your makeup.”
She added, “In about half an hour, voila! Dinner is served! You must be exhausted.”
According to the Daily Mail, the Anti-Defamation League took issue with the page at the time, calling it “insulting” and “anti-Semitic.” They stated, “It’s a lousy recipe with insensitive and anti-Semitic ingredients. Whoopi should know better.”
Looks like Whoopi has quite the history of making uncouth statements.
