There was a great reaction from the Jewish community to Goldberg, who evaluated the Holocaust, in which 6 million Jews were murdered, as "It was not racist, it was the cruelty of man against another."

Goldberg apologized after Jewish organizations in the USA reacted to her comment that the Holocaust was "not about race, but about the cruelty of man to man."

American ABC Television announced that Goldberg's participation in the program "The View", which she has been hosting since 2007, was suspended for two weeks.

Confusing alien statement from Star Trek star

People in the studio were stunned

Goldberg suggested that aliens were watching humans.

Goldberg, who moderates the talk show The View, argued on the air that aliens had come to Earth.

Kumail Nanjiani, known for her role as Dinesh in the HBO series Silicon Valley, jokingly said that she believes in aliens and said, "I guess they're waiting for us to recover a little so they can come here and say we really messed up."

Goldberg, who played the character Guinan in 1994's Star Trek 7: The Next Generation, then said, "They are already here. They have been with us for a while."

Surprised, Nanjiani turned to Goldberg and asked, "What are they doing?" When asked, the 68-year-old actor replied, "They are watching us."

Presenter Sara Haines intervened and said, "He talks to beings, not aliens. I'm behind you, don't worry," referring to Goldberg's role in the 1990 movie Ghost.

Goldberg has made remarkable statements about aliens before.

A public hearing was held in the US Congress in July about the mysterious events known as "unidentified flying objects" (UFO) and "unidentified aerial phenomena" (UAP).

Three intelligence officers who attended the meeting claimed that the Pentagon had "extraterrestrial materials". The Pentagon claimed that the allegations were unfounded.

Goldberg said about the allegations in her program on The View at that time, "I already knew about these before Congress."
