Whoopi's Mad

Whoopi Goldberg isn't a happy lady, she is mad at Republicans because they are to blame for her losing her role with SlimFast. She branded them hypocrites for trying to "punish" her for joking about the President.
"The fact that I am no longer the spokesman for SlimFast makes me sad, but not as sad as someone trying to punish me for exercising my right as an American to speak my mind."
Whoopi feels her rights are being taken from her,
"America's heart and soul is freedom of expression without fear of reprisal,"
Whoopi is right, but what she fails to understand is that it works both ways in this situation. If you piss off half the population, which leads a large portion of them to boycott the company you work for, they are only exercising their rights as Americans too. Consumers are free to purchase or not purchase what ever products they like, Whoopi's mad because other people are exercising their rights, now who's the hypocrite?

If your a spokesman for a company and your public comments hurt that company's ability to make a profit, you'd be pretty naive to think you weren't going to get canned, especially when your dealing with a very competitive market like weight loss products, where keeping your market share is very important. Oh well, lesson learned, I think.
