Roseanne Barr said she is as “queer as two motherfuckers” in a new video she posted on her YouTube channel Sunday.
In the now-deleted video, Barr began by talking about how much she hates the derogatory slur “fag.”
“Man, the word fag is a really hateful word, isn’t it?” Barr, who appears to be sitting in a golf cart, began.
“Especially when it’s like one gay calling another gay guy that. Whoo! Have you ever been in the middle of one of them hate marriages? Whoof!”[irp posts=9265]
She continued: “It’s like ‘Wait a minute. We’re not supposed to say that word. How come you’re saying that word? What? Okay, I just can’t say the word. Well, I can when I’m in the house, but I can’t say it outside of the house. Okay, I get your rules.’”
Barr, 66, goes on to say that “fag” is a “hateful word” and people “should get rid of it.”
“Get rid of it being spoken,” she added. “All that LGBTQ stuff, okay, let me just be real. I put the Q in LGBTQ. Okay. Because I am queer as two motherfuckers. 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. But I did put the Q in it. Bye.”
Barr, who has a gay brother and a lesbian sister, was the first recipient of GLAAD’s Vanguard Award, an honor presented to a member of the entertainment community who has made a significant difference in promoting equal rights for LGBTQ people.
She shared the award with then-husband Tom Arnold in 1993.
