Whoopi Goldberg has recently been showing up in the media lately after releasing information according to the Denver Business Journal about bringing her own cannabis products to the state of Colorado. Goldberg’s products are designed for women and aim to reduce pain and cramps from menstruation. Goldberg founded her company last year, Whoopi & Maya and has been selling the product in about 300 dispensaries in California.
Besides working on the production of her cannabis products and clothing line, she was on The Domenick Nati Show for about two minutes before hanging up. She began the discussion sharing some information about her new Holiday sweaters in her collection.
The mood of the conversation soon switched as Domenick brought up the topic of sexual harassment, which has currently been a trending topic in the media lately. He asked Goldberg had she ever experienced sexual harassment in her career and she exclaimed,“No, honey!”
Shortly after her response Goldberg hung up the phone.

Maybe it was one of those days that she was a bit exhausted on the subject of sexual harassment. Recently during an appearance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, The View co-host gave her thoughts on Harvey Weinstein’s Academy removal and what she thinks is at the root of sexual harassment matters. Goldberg voiced her thoughts on the recent wave of sexual assault and harassment claims against those in high position in Hollywood.
She admitted during that she wasn’t surprised by the volume of women coming forward, Goldberg argued that any act of sexual misconduct is about “power.” Goldberg explained, “People in power, be they men or women, always prey on people who they know won’t tell.”
When Colbert interjected that he “hadn’t heard of any women in this one,” The View co-host said she wouldn’t rule out the possibility.
“Not yet, but you know its coming. It’s all coming and what’s happening is women are taking back the narrative, because they’re saying, “Look, we’re going to make it dangerous for you to sexually assault us and sexually abuse us…You’re going to lose your power base if you do that from now on, because women are starting to speak,” Goldberg said.
It’s definitely time that women begin to take a stand against sexual harassment and not just sit back and be silent about what is happening around them.
