Florida-based Slim-Fast said it was "disappointed" in Goldberg's remarks at last Thursday's $7.5 million star-studded fund-raiser at Radio City Music Hall in New York.

"Ads featuring Ms. Goldberg will no longer be on the air," Slim-Fast General Manager Terry Olson said in a statement, adding that the company regrets that Goldberg's remarks offended some customers.

I know there is such thing as free speech, but a company also has the right to drop a spokesperson for such comments...

What a moron, I understand she was drunk, but really, have some class and think before you speak... Even though it's funny, it wasn't very smart on her part... Way to lose a job whoopi... I could say some stupid jokes about her name, but i'll refrain...

While everyone has the right to their opinion and everyone over 21 has the right to drink, you do not have the right to get up at a charity fundraiser, drunk and beligerent and make an ass out of yourself when you are the chief spokesperson for a multinational company. Not good business sense, not good common sense. Ive never been a fan of hers but this was as ridiculus as that farce of a doctor show she runs on one of those womens channels. Whats it called, um oh crap I cant remember now. Anyways its a feminist biased ER wannabe.

Whoopi Goldberg was a spokesperson for Slim-Fast?

All I know about her is her role as "Guinan" on Star Trek: TNG, and that she was in a few comedy movies in the 1990's. I thought she'd already retired or something...

Why they chose her as a spokesperson in the first place is beyond me. She's never been funny. EVER. I don't think I've ever even cracked a smile while watching her.
Maybe a bigger name with some actual talent became available and Slim-Fast just needed an excuse...

You can't pitch weight loss drinks & wear baggy cloths....the ads were horrible.
That they can placate the devils-posing-as-Christians-running-the-country-into-a-fascist-oligarchy was just a happy side effect.

So if Slim Fast cares about reaching and advertising their product to the far right, what does that say about the far right? I would think Michael Moore minus the weight would be a good spokesperson instead.

Cut the woman some slack! Her people were all but destroyed by the Borg; she's had a tough life.

Actually - Whoopi was never that funny.
