Outspoken comedienne and 'View' co-host Whoopi Goldberg has come out to defend filmmaker Roman Polanski, claiming that he did not commit "rape-rape."

Goldberg was responding to the director's arrest in Switzerland on Saturday for a 30-year-old rape conviction. Polanski is facing extradition to the US after having fled the country in 1978 following his conviction, which involved a 13-year-old model.

On a recent episode of her talk show, 'The View,' Goldberg said she believed the incident that took place at Jack Nicholson's house in 1977 was misrepresented.
