AFRICANGLOBE – Roseanne Barr has launched a verbal attack on the #MeToo movement.
Barr, who was fired from ABC’s Roseanne for a racist tweet in May 2018, sat down with far-right commentator, Candace Owens, for an interview published on Sunday.
‘They were there in the room because they thought they were going to get a job 15 years ago. Cuz they’re hoes,’ Barr told Owens as they discussed their views on the #MeToo movement.
Barr said some of the women who were in men’s hotel rooms at 3am are ‘pretending that they didn’t go to trade sexual favors for money’.
She continued mocking the alleged victims of the movement by saying they stayed around in the hotel rooms because they thought they were going to get a job.
‘Well you ain’t nothing but a hoe. I know a hoe when I see one,’ Barr added.
The #MeToo movement was founded in 2006 by Tarana Burke, who started using the phrase to raise awareness of sexual abuse and assault.
It became a broader movement in 2017 when dozens of allegations ranging from rape to sexual harassment came out against Harvey Weinstein.
Barr didn’t name drop Burke, but she did mention one notable #MeToo accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, who publicly accused US judge Brett Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct.
Ford, 52, tearfully testified against him before he was confirmed as a member of America’s Supreme Court. She accused him of groping her at a party when she was a teenager.
Barr claimed during the interview that ‘nothing happened’ to Ford.
‘She should be in prison,’ Barr said, adding that Ford used her ‘white woman privilege’ to rake in $1million from crowdfunding campaigns that supported her following her testimony.
At one point she laid into California Democrat, Kamala Harris, who’s running for president.
‘Look at Kamala Harris, who I call Kama Sutra Harris,’ Barr says.
‘We all know what she did… she slept her way to the bottom,’ Barr continues, apparently referring to Harris’ past relationship with former San Francisco Mayor Willie Brown.
More than a week ago, the comedian took aim at Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s ‘green new deal’ and called her a ‘bug-eyed b***h’ in a rambling rant.
