'The View': Is Whoopi Goldberg still on Mel Gibson's side?

whoopi-view-mel-gibson-link.pngWe know that "The View" co-host Whoopi Goldberg has a history of friendship with Mel Gibson, and sometimes, it's important to stand up for our friends. But when our friends go on multiple abusive, misogynistic, racist rants that are then publicized all over the internet, it might be time to cease public support. Just saying.

While Whoopi did say "I don't condone this. I don't think this is right. I don't think this is smart," when she spoke about the mind-blowing tapes of Mel Gibson screaming obscenities at girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva. But she also said that he's not racist, despite his use of the N-word and his use of the word "pack" to describe a group of black men.

On the August 3 episode of "The View," RadarOnline exec David Perel faced the firing squad. Mel Gibson's scandal has raised RadarOnline's stock in the world of celebrity journalism, as they've been the source of the multiple audio clips. Apparently, Whoopi doesn't approve.
