According to Whoopi Goldberg, no offense taken wrote last week when someone took to Twitter to say that the hip-hop artist 2Chainz looked like her.

The comparison came on the Oct. 9 edition of ABC's "Jimmy Kimmel Live" in a segment titled "Mean Tweets." It was a play on one of his guests, rapper Kanye West, with whom Kimmel had a Twitter feud earlier.

In the "Mean Tweets" segment, musicians came on the show and read unflattering tweets others wrote about them.

"@2Chainz looks like Whoopi Goldberg," the entertainer read, looking perplexed and annoyed by the comparison as the audience laughed.

Goldberg, a panelist on ABC's daytime talk show "The View," took to Twitter herself to compliment 2Chainz, whose real name is Tauheed Epps.

The "Mean Tweets" segment included a long list of musicians and bands that read unflattering things about themselves on the 140-character medium, including Lil Wayne, John Legend, Katy Perry, Kid Rock, Ke$ha, Selena Gomez, Jared Leto, Demi Lovato, Darius Rucker, the Zac Brown Band, Lady Antebellum, Pharrell, John Mayer, Adam Levine, Mayer Hawthorne, the Backstreet Boys, Big Sean, Brad Paisley, and Fall Out Boy.

Later in the show, Kimmel and West buried the hatchet over their feud on Twitter, which began after Kimmel used kids to do a spinoff of an interview the rapper did with the BBC.

"They were really fun to me as I was writing it … the only reason why I could do that is because we could speak on a similar level and we can go back and forth," West said about his mean-spirited tweets to Kimmel after the spoof, wrote Entertainment Weekly. "I just thought that this was amazing you know, just crack media … I do everything I can to break media. You shoulda saw the second set of tweets!"
