Everybody—and we mean everybody—seems to have an opinion on the Taylor Swift and Nicki Minaj drama.

The "Super Bass" rapper got Twitter buzzing Tuesday evening when discussing her MTV Video Music Awards snub. In fact, her sassy tweets got Swift and her fans to speculate that they were directed towards the star-studded "Bad Blood" music video.

While Minaj insists that she simply wanted to point out that black women do not get enough recognition for their influence on pop culture, others aren't buying it.

"What the hell is going on?" Whoopi Goldberg shared on The View Wednesday morning. "What is happening?"

She continued, "Beyoncé gets nominated and wins. You can't say on one hand that it's all about skinny girls. Not that I'm putting Beyoncé down but I'm just saying that's a full-figured bitch. I'm sorry."

For those who missed the epic tweets, Minaj voiced her disappointment that her "Anaconda" video didn't receive more love from MTV. In the process, she took some shots at fellow nominees.

"If your video celebrates women with very slim bodies, you will be nominated for vid of the year," she tweeted. "Oh but trust me. I'll be on that stage to collect my awards for vid of the year."

When further discussing the topic, Goldberg wondered if Minaj's explanation is valid.

"[Beyoncé] gets nominated so maybe ["Anaconda"] wasn't their cup of tea," she explained. "Maybe it wasn't anything but that."

 New co-host Michelle Collins, however, is happy to proclaim her spot on the #TeamNicki team.

"'Anaconda' is one of the few videos that I remember from the last year. I loved the video," she explained. "I thought it was entertaining and that's what this is about. I think she has a point. Hollywood in general:  Skinny girls go further."
