She’s got a message to share. Roseanne Barr posted a bizarre new video to her YouTube channel on Easter, where she claims to be “queer as two motherf–kers.” In a minute-long clip, the former Roseanne actress slams the word “f-g” and vents her frustrations.
“The word f-g is a really hateful word, isn’t it? Especially when it’s one gay calling another gay guy that … Have you ever been in the middle of one of them hate marriages? It’s like, wait a minute, we’re not supposed to say that word,” Roseanne said. “How come you’re saying that word? … Oh, I just can’t say the word. Well, I can when I’m in the house, but I can’t say it outside the house. OK, I get your rules, but it is a hateful word and you should get rid of it. Get rid of it being spoken.”
“All that LGBTQ stuff, let me just be real, I put the Q in LGBTQ because I’m as queer as two motherf–kers. I’m queer,” the actress, 66, continued. It’s unknown whether she is actually coming out about her sexuality or just using the term in a different context. “I’m alien. I don’t belong here with all these people,” Roseanne added in her candid YouTube video. “They make no sense. They are very queer and that makes me a queer, I guess. I did put the Q in it, bye.”
It’s been nearly a year since the star was fired from her hit TV show following a racist tweet. During a recent interview, ABC Entertainment president Channing Dungey addressed Roseanne’s “egregious” post where the comedian compared former Obama aide Valerie Jarrett to an ape.
“We’ve had multiple conversations about wanting to keep the focus on the show and not to let some of the other stuff eclipse the show,” Channing told The Hollywood Reporter about their decision to let Roseanne go. “So, in some ways, this was a last straw. But it was also such an egregious tweet that it felt like no matter what, there would have been some action that we would have taken.”
Back in July 2018, Roseanne revealed that she had some regrets when it came to her Twitter post. “I made a mistake,” she said. “It cost me everything, my life’s work. I wish I worded it better.”
