Roseanne Barr knows how to fire folks up when she’s itching to make headlines, and over the weekend, she was back at offending anyone with opposing views than hers.
The former comedian/actress took aim at the #MeToo movement and Sen. Kamala Harris during a recent interview which left actor Anthony Anderson noting now “some people need help.”
On Sunday, Barr was the first guest on right-wing commentator Candace Owen’s new podcast called The Candace Owens Show and the two women dished about the sexual misconduct accusations on Hollywood.
The 66-year-old explained that women who showed up to the hotel rooms of powerful industry players over a decade ago, with the hope that they would bag a lucrative gig, are nothing more than “hos,” she told Owens.
“If you don’t run out of the room and go, ‘Excuse me, you don’t do that to me,’ and leave, but you stayed around because you’re like, ‘Well, I thought maybe he was going to give me a writing job,’ well, you aren’t nothing but a ho.”
Barr also called out these accusers for “pretending that they didn’t go to trade sexual favors for money.”
“I know a ho when I see one,” she added.
She said later, “Women are pissed because they weren’t attracted to the guy that did it.”
Meanwhile, Anderson believes Barr’s unhinged rant is a cry for help.
When TMZ caught up with the Black-ish star leaving a restaurant in Los Angeles Sunday, he weighed in Barr’s latest controversy.
“I’ll say this… I don’t know what she said, I just heard about what she said, but what I heard.. some people need help.”
Barr, who was booted from ABC’s Roseanne revival series after posting a racist tweet about former Obama aide Valerie Jarrett, went on to slam Kamala Harris, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Christine Blasey Ford, who accused Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct.
“Look at Kamala Harris, who I call Kama Sutra Harris. We all know what she did. … She slept her way to the bottom,” Barr said.
