Whoopi Goldberg recently addressed backlash over her comments about South Carlina Senator Lindsey Graham.

Goldberg said she’d meant no harm and was simply joking around.

She stated that she’d seen a tweet accusing her of calling Graham a closeted gay man.

The actress’ statements came during a discussion on the show about Graham’s recent political decisions.

Guest speaker Karine Jean-Pierre questioned why the senator had recently changed his stance on the abortion ban.

In response, Goldberg suggested that Graham could be gay and planning to get married.

There were mixed reactions to Goldberg’s statements on social media, but many defended her.

Goldberg was previously suspended from the show because of her comments on the Holocaust.

She apologized to Jewish people worldwide for her statements and said she never meant to hurt anyone.
