Whoopi Goldberg has had it with the discourse around Miranda Lambert.

The country singer divided the world after she paused a song during a performance to rip into fans who were taking a selfie.

Lambert was singing 'Tin Man' during her Velvet Rodeo The Las Vegas Residency at Planet Hollywood when she noticed some guests not being as attentive as she would have liked.

So, she stopped singing and called them out.

"I’m gonna stop right here for a second, I’m sorry," the 39-year-old singer said to her pianist.

"These girls are worried about their selfie and not listening to the song.

"It’s p*ssing me off a little bit.

"Sorry, I don’t like it. At all. We’re here to hear some country music tonight. I’m singing some country damn music."

It has really split people down the middle, with some agreed with the country music star for wanting their fans' undivided attention, while others think she's being a bit precious.

The incident was discussed on The View during their Hot Topics segment and it seems like the co-hosts couldn't agree.

Sunny Hostin sided with the fans who took the selfie.

The 54-year-old believes she should be able 'to take as many selfies as I want if I paid $757 for tickets'.

However, Goldberg didn't see it that way.

“You know what? Stay home,” the Oscar-winner said.

“If you’re going to spend $750 to come to my concert, then give me the respect of watching me while I do my thing, or don’t come.”

Hostin said she likes to capture moments during concerts so she can relive them, but Whoopi told her to 'turn on the television, girl'.

She then got up and walked off the stage towards the audience and, when co-host Joy Behar asked where she was going, the actor said she wanted to get a selfie with a crowd member.

"I want to take a picture with this marvelous woman, who is 91," she said.

"So, we're going to do a selfie. Just me and you.

"Will you push that button? We'll be right back."

So, hot tip, if you're ever an audience member in The View, don't take loads of selfies around Whoopi Goldberg, because it doesn't sound like she's going to appreciate it.
