Is Whoopi Goldberg Trying to Get Fired From 'The View'?

Could Whoopi Goldberg be the next View host to call it quits?

The 60-year-old comedian has reportedly been acting "antagonistic" behind-the-scenes of the ABC talk show, which has left people wondering if she's trying get the network to pull her reported $5 million a year contract, according to Page Six.

"She's constantly at war with management," a source told the New York newspaper. "It's so bad that some execs think she's daring them to fire her so she can go off and do other things, particularly after her 'slave' outburst. She knows if they did fire her, they'd have to pay out her contract, and she'd be paid $5 million for doing nothing."

"Whoopi loves the money, but she doesn't want to work so hard anymore," the source added. "She doesn't come in prepared, she doesn't really engage with other panelists and guests. She gives some one-liners and moves on."

Goldberg is reportedly in the final year of a five-year contract and will be receiving "significantly less money" if she does decide to renew it.

It doesn't come as much of a surprise that the host would want out, considering all the strife The View has conjured up over the past year.

In September, controversial comments that were made about nurses in September that sparked outrage and cost the program two major advertisers.

Less than two months later, an online petition was launched asking to get Goldberg's co-host, Raven-Symone, fired from the daytime talk show after she defended the police officer who used extreme measure to remove a disruptive high school student in a story that went viral last fall.

The 30-year-old actress had already caused a stir just a couple of weeks before when she admitted to being "very discriminatory" against "ghetto"-sounding names.

ET has reached out to ABC for comment.

No matter what is going on off-camera, Goldberg hasn't remained quiet on-screen. Watch the video below to see how the host responded to the recent Oscars outrage.
