According to reports, Whoopi was up in arms over the fact that a meeting for the Hot Topics segment of the show was moved outside of her contracted hours (which begin promptly at 9 am).
Apparently, Candi Carter, The View's new consulting producer, bore the brunt of Whoopi's frustration over the segment!
According to DailyMail.com, Whoopi said to her:

Talk about controversy!
Terrence Howard is all about authenticity, so when it comes to the smash hit Empire, he wants to throw political correctness out of the window! During an interview in February, he said:
"If we start getting silly, if we start playing to people's fancies, then we don't deserve to be where we are. It's a big pressure because I want to be a truth-sayer. I want to raise the bar. I want to get rid of this f—ed up word called PC. I think it's a gate for bigotry because as long as you're politically correct you can say anything you want but feel some way different… I'm mad that we don't say n—- in the show," he admits. "Why is TV showing something different from the reality of the world? Why is there a thing called censorship that stop people from hearing everyday talk? We use n—-every day. It's become part of a conversation—why aren't we using it in the show?"

Whoa! Well, it seems like Terrance is the only person that feels that way because not only has white writer David Rambo said he won't use the controversial word, but co-star Taraji P. Henson is against the use for the sake of authenticity as well She said:
