Playing Whoopi Goldberg Slams 'The View' Hiring and Firing Rumors

Whoopi Goldberg wants her name taken out of the rumors swirling about the future of The View.

The Daily Mail reported that the 60-year-old co-host was, in part, responsible for the alleged demotion of Paula Faris, a claim Goldberg vehemently denied when she took to Twitter on Wednesday morning.

"Contrary to what you might read ...I do NOT run ABC nor do I own or produce, not involved in hiring for The View so don't send your resumes," Goldberg wrote. "I'm not responsible for 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 someone else's WRONGLY perceived change."

She went on to outright slam the website. "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 you ANY ability to know Anything I think?" she added. "No, Daily Mail, I wouldn't. So if you're 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 talk's minds. No fight here, just clearing up an untruth."

Despite her Twitter rant, Goldberg made no mention of the report when she co-hosted during Wednesday's show.

The co-hosts of The View are gearing up for season 20, and Goldberg spoke to ET about being a part of such a long-running program. Check it out:
