HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Comedian and The View co-host Whoopi Goldberg declared that Mel Gibson is not a racist, as they discussed recently released tapes allegedly featuring the actor -- including one in which a racial slur is used. Goldberg said, "I know Mel, and I know he's not a racist. He may be a bonehead. ... I can't sit and say that he's a racist, having spent time with him in my house with my kids."
