Roseanne Barr says she is as queer as queer can be in a new video.
The infamous “Roseanne” actress released a video her YouTube channel opposing the use of the word “f*g.” During the video, she also came out as queer.
“The word f*g is a really hateful word, isn’t it?” she asked on Sunday. “Especially when it’s, like, one gay calling another gay guy that. Hooo, 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. How come you’re saying that word?… But it is a hateful word and we should get rid of it. Get rid of it being spoken.”
Barr, 66, proceeded by identifying as queer. “All that LGBTQ stuff, I put the ‘Q’ in LGBTQ, OK? ‘Cause I am queer as two motherf**kers,” she proclaimed. “I’m queer. I’m alien. I don’t belong here with all these people. They make no sense. They are very queer. And that makes me… a queer, I guess?”
The controversial comedian has since deleted the video. That did not stop outlets from picking up the story, nor did it stop the public from reacting on social media.
Barr was famously fired from the 2018 “Roseanne” revival and ABC subsequently cancelled the show in response to what many deemed as racist tweets she posted about Valerie Jarrett.
