Whoopi Goldberg isn't messing around anymore! Apparently frustrated with the new executives for ABC's The View after they cut her out of decision-making for Hot Topics, the show's moderator spun into a frenzy, calling herself a slave to the network.

One show source told the Daily Mail: "She was out of control. She paraded up and down the halls saying, 'I's a work for ABC who is my master. I's a slave to ABC. It's 12 Years a Whoopi at ABC.'"

According to the Mail, after comparing herself to the Oscar-winning film, 12 Years A Slave, Whoopi reportedly shouted, "I's just a n****r following orders around here, master!"

The 59-year-old's abrupt outburst shocked View staffers, who attempted to calm her down with little success.

Whoopi's declaration comes as a result of her relationship with newcomer Candi Carter, who was hired on to the hit-show following the departure of executive producer Bill Wolff.

Insiders also told the Mail that show hosts Joy Behar, Raven-Symone, Michelle Collins and Paula Farris found Carter controlling, but it was Whoopi who had the gall to speak her mind.

"She told Candi: 'I don't take orders from your a**. Stay in your lane like you did when you worked on The Oprah Winfrey Show,'" the source adds.

But as Radar previously reported, Whoopi has been a longtime diva on set, prompting execs to allegedly set their sites on getting rid of the veteran host.
