Everyone is talking about Harrison Butker.

He’s the Kansas City Chiefs kicker who pissed off your mom, your sister, and every Taylor Swift fan breathing with this controversial commencement speech at Benedictine College.

Yet, there are still some who are defending his words. No, not the NFL. Not his teammate, Travis Kelce. It turns out, Whoopi Goldberg is fighting for Harrison’s right to say all these deplorable things.

And maybe she has a point?

She was quick to clarify that people do “not have to believe” or “accept” his beliefs, before heeding the warning that they should “respect” them.

“We wanna give respect to people whose ideas are different from ours,” she explained.

“I’m OK with him saying whatever he says, and the women who were sitting there, if they take his advice, good for them, they’ll be happy. If they don’t, good for them, they’ll be happy in a different way. That’s my attitude,” …read more
