Whoopi Goldberg Rips Daily Mail Over ‘View’ Casting Report

Talk-show maven denies that she got her colleague’s air-time cut

Whoopi Goldberg would like it to be known: She is not the hatchet woman for “The View.”

Goldberg went into a Twitter rant against British publication the Daily Mail, after the Mail reported that Goldberg’s “View” cohort Paula Faris blamed Goldberg for getting Faris’ air time cut down from five episodes to one per week.

In response, the “Sister Act” star fired up her Twitter account and opened up an economy-size can of Whoopi-ass on the Mail.

“Contrary to what u might read in the I do NOT run ABC nor do I own or produce, not involved in hiring4 the View so don’t send ur resumes,” Goldberg’s social-media jeremiad began. “I’m not responsible 4 firing or moving people around or negotiating my coworkers contracts. I LIKE having a gig and as much as I’d like to rule the entire universe, I have enough to do in my life than to take mean girl pleasure at some one else WRONGLY perceived change.”

Goldberg then took aim at the Mail specifically, writing, “Also daily mail knowing that people talk A lot do you honestly think I would talk or act in such a way that would give u ANY ability to know anything I think?? No daily mail I wouldn’t, so if your going to continue to accuse me of doing this kind of thing could you make something someone my age would do. For goodness sake the only botch fest is the one in talks minds.no fight here just clearing up an untruth.”

Save some of that for “Hot Topics,” you dreadlocked firecracker.
