Whoopi Goldberg retweets claim that Israel ‘massacres’ Palestinians, backtracks

By

This morning, when asked to retweet a tweet about Israel’s supposed targeting of Palestinian civilians for murder, Whoopi was all too happy to oblige. However, the gesture didn’t go over terribly well with some of her followers:

@mahmoudtaji @whoopigoldberg That’s what happens when they are used as human shields.

@mahmoudtaji @whoopigoldberg Maybe the Hamas should find better things to hide behind! What about the last 1400 years of Israeli deaths?

@whoopigoldberg supports the Terrorists in #Hamas She is retweeting tweets claiming #Israel is Massacring Palestinian Children. Wake up #USA

And Whoopi, perhaps realizing that she shouldn’t have been tweeting while ignorant, quickly attempted to walk it back:

question,who started THIS round of fighting between Palestinians & Israel Everyone wants a retweet about their side. Someone explain plse.

— Whoopi Goldberg (@WhoopiGoldberg) November 20, 2012

Yeah, good question. If only there were some conclusive evidence one way or the other …

@whoopigoldberg If you don’t know, then why are you retweeting supporting Terrorists in #Hamas. It was the TERRORIST in HAMAS.

@mahmoudtaji @whoopigoldberg After this RT – can you please RT that Hamas is hiding amongst civilians and that is what causes the death!!!

— Karen Moses (@kars01) November 20, 2012

@whoopigoldberg if you follow @idfspokesperson you will see the aerial views of where #Hamas Launches rockets close to schools, mosques etc.

That’s good advice. She ought to give @TwitchyTeam a follow as well — our comprehensive coverage of the Israel-Hamas conflict is straightforward enough for even Whoopi to understand.

Update:

Whoopi doesn’t seem to have appreciated being called out on her ignorance:

@twitchyteam so twitchy I’m curious, was this man incorrect? Did this not happen? See I u had said ” I don’t think that right” I’d believe

— Whoopi Goldberg (@WhoopiGoldberg) November 20, 2012

@twitchyteam u gave a crap about thisinstead actually had something to say. But that’s not what u want. I maybe ignorant about what’s

— Whoopi Goldberg (@WhoopiGoldberg) November 20, 2012

@twitchyteam happening and I am always interested in hearing opinions. But you are offering nothing and so for me u have become unimportant.

— Whoopi Goldberg (@WhoopiGoldberg) November 20, 2012

Ugh. Whoopi. We have plenty to offer, starting with the truth. You need only take a moment to open your eyes to it.

Gonna b really clear, I’m NOT going to stop having an opinion cos someone somewhere is not gonna like it. I will continue 2 retweet those

— Whoopi Goldberg (@WhoopiGoldberg) November 20, 2012

Things which I find interesting or want folks 2 know about. This need to make people confirm 2 1 side or the other is not 4 me, SO if u have

— Whoopi Goldberg (@WhoopiGoldberg) November 20, 2012

Something constructive to teach me or tell me I’m open. Otherwise ur really just more noise 2 me. So I’m going to eat now..Twitter out4 now

— Whoopi Goldberg (@WhoopiGoldberg) November 20, 2012

The need to confirm what is and what is not the truth may not be Whoopi’s cup of tea, but it’s ours. And if she wishes to block out the “noise,” that’s her prerogative. But we will continue to hold her accountable for the things she says.
