After Dash endorsed Republican presidential candidate, Mitt Romney, on Twitter, she was surprised at the number of negative responses she got. One person tweeted at her,
“You’re an unemployed black woman endorsing Mitt Romney. You’re voting against yourself thrice, you poor beautiful idiot.”
On Wednesday morning, on “The View”, Goldberg defended Dash and said the actress had the right to her own opinion, calling the attacks on Dash “vicious” and “horrible.”
Clearly bothered by news that Dash was even being threatened, Goldberg said,
”She’s entitled — and she’s a nice girl… this isn’t someone who went out and killed somebody. What the h**l you people sending her c**p like this for?!”
Barbara Walters tried to explain the rationale behind the attacks, calling them racially motivated. Said Walters,
”The reason she is being attacked is because she is black and the feeling is black people should not be voting for Romney.”
After some talking, back and forth, Goldberg said,
“She is being attacked because she has a different view from other people,” Goldberg argued. “And I think you don’t like somebody’s views, that’s okay, but to hand somebody death threats because — it’s the same thing with Bristol Palin — what the h**l! What’s wrong with us that this is what we do?!”
Goldberg went on to share a story about her own experience with negative backlash when she briefly considered supporting Romney.
“I got my behind handed to me when Mr. Romney was here… when I thought he was more the guy I thought was interesting. You would’ve thought I pooped on the front lawn of the White House.”
Goldberg has since changed her mind about Romney. After hearing what Romney had to say about her and “The View”, Goldberg took to Twitter to make it clear that she would not support him.
