Roseanne Barr Says #MeToo Accusers Are “Hoes,”
Roseanne Barr has been the centre of bad press in the last 12 month.
Last year, she was fired from her own show after writing a racist tweet about Valerie Jarret, an African-American woman who was a senior adviser to Barack Obama during his presidency.
The 66-year-old comedian has sparked yet another controversial backlash over the comments she made during an appearance on The Candace Owens Show.
During the show, Roseanne mocked sexual assault accusers and the #MeToo movement calling it a “witch hunt” — furthering, “If you don’t run out of the room … but you stayed around because you’re like, ‘I thought maybe he was going to give me a writing job,’ well, you ain’t nothing but a hoe,”
She even went as far to say that #MeToo accusers are “pretending they didn’t go to trade sexual favours for money”
Roseanne went to exclaim, “I know a hoe when I see one … they need to be called out … that’s privilege, too — hoe privilege”
