Whoopi Goldberg gave Justin Bieber a pass on The View when video of him saying the word came out.

“You know, Canadian words — I’m going to say the word so get ready to beat me. N*gger doesn’t mean anything in Canada. And how do I know this? Well, I did a movie last year, in Canada, and a young, wonderful Canadian woman wrote it, and I’m reading it and I’m thinking, ‘We wouldn’t say anything like this.’ So I went to the director and I said, what is this? And he said, oh, she lives here. And I said so she doesn’t know anything, she doesn’t get what we’re talking about.”

“What I’m saying is that, when you are 15 and you’re someplace where that’s not a word that you have associated with people of color…they weren’t calling them that.”
