Whoopi Goldberg Defends Chiefs Kicker Harrison Butker Amid Speech Backlash: ‘These Are His Beliefs’

The hosts of “The View” are weighing in on the controversial comments made by Kansas City Chiefs kicker Harrison Butker during a commencement address at Benedictine College on May 11. Co-host Whoopi Goldberg partially defended the football pro on air, saying, “These are his beliefs and he’s welcome to them.” In his speech, Butker insinuated to female students that they would be most fulfilled by being wives and mothers and not by successful careers. He also made negative comments about the LGBTQ community.
