Parent company be damned, Whoopi Goldberg is calling out “Frozen” for not having any characters of color in the cast. “The View,” airs on ABC, which is owned by Disney, the company responsible for the hit animated movie.
“There are no black people in this movie,” Goldberg said on Tuesday’s episode. “They’ve been asking me not to talk badly about it but there’s no black people.”
While Goldberg came out as a critic of the film, co-host Rosie O’Donnell has long expressed how much she and her family enjoy the movie. On Wednesday, O’Donnell attempted to prove that there are indeed black people in “Frozen.”
“Last night while we watched ‘Frozen,’ as we do nightly, we stopped and took photos of every beige to brown to black person,” O’Donnell said.
Showing her snapshots on-air proved to do more harm than good though, as the black characters O’Donnell captured were always in the background and might quite possibly just been the same girl wearing different dresses.
“They keep moving her and changing her dress,” Goldberg yelled. “That’s the same chick it was when you saw her the first time.”
The award for best one-liner of the morning goes to conservative Nicolle Wallace, who told O’Donnell, “There are more black people in the Republican Party.”
Absent from the table for the second straight day was Rosie Perez. Goldberg opened the show explaining why Perez was missing again and dispelled any reports that she was being replaced.
“Contrary to anything else you’re hearing, Rosie Perez is not going anywhere,” Goldberg said. “She is on this show. So all of y’all haters out there or those who are trying to get that job, it’s locked. Sorry.”
