Fans of The View are considering boycotting the series after it was announced that Whoopi Goldberg would be suspended for two weeks after comments she made regarding the Holocaust.

On Monday's episode, Goldberg said she felt the Holocaust was "not about race" while acknowledging that the horrific incident showcased "man's inhumanity to man." Her fellow co-hosts tried to educate her on the scope of the Holocaust's effects on racial minorities, to no avail. However, later that night, Goldberg issued an apology for her words.

"On today's show, I said the Holocaust 'is not about race, but about man's inhumanity to man.' I should have said it is both.

However, she doubled down on her comments as a guest on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, once again saying that Nazis "had issues with ethnicity, not with race."

Tuesday, Goldberg and Greenblatt did have a discussion on The View, with Goldberg reiterating her apology. But this wasn't enough for Kim Godwin, president of ABC News.

Many fans have taken to Twitter to unleash their anger over Goldberg's suspension.

Another wrote that Goldberg should "resign" from 'The View' because of their belief that ABC has a "double standard."

Another wrote, "Whoopi's apology was heartfelt and sincere. Her suspension was ridiculous, especially in light of the fact it's Black History Month and considering how much they let Megan McCain get away with. I'm done with The View. And I truly hope [Whoopi] is too. She should 'cancel' them."
