Roseanne Barr says she is “queer,” and then denounces the word “f*g” in a video rant posted to YouTube.
“The word f-g is a really hateful word, isn’t it?,” she said.
Barr added: [“Especially when it’s one gay calling another gay guy that. Whoo… 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? … Oh, I just can’t say the word. Well, I can when I’m in the house, but I can’t say it outside the house. OK, I get your rules, but it is a hateful word and you should get rid of it. Get rid of it being spoken.”] SOUNDCUE (:30 OC: . . .being spoken.)
She continued: “All that LGBTQ stuff let me just be real I put the Q in LGBTQ because I’m as queer as two motherf–kers. I’m queer,” Barr said. “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. I did put the Q in it, bye.”
It’s unclear if Barr means she identifies sexually as queer, or as an alternative to the mainstream.
