    Hello,

    It's taken from an American TV series taking place in New York.

    a girl (A) interrupts a girl friend of her (B) having a kind of argument with her boyfriend (B's boyfriend) (basically, B tells her boyfriend that he is being too sweet and that she would like him to not give a shit about her). The boyfriend then leaves the room saying "Have a good day, ladies. I mean, sluts." and telling A she's a slut.
    A to B: What?
    B to A: I'm sorry about him.
    A to B: No sweat off my back. What's going on?

    Does it mean she doesn't care but wants to know whats' happening?

    Thank you for your help!

    Yes, the insult doesn't bother her but she wants to know what's happening between B and B’s boyfriend.
