Roseanne Barr goes after #MeToo
Roseanne Barr is known for being outspoken and now she’s sharing her thoughts on the #MeToo movement.
In an interview with “The Candace Owens Show” published Sunday, Barr addressed her firing from ABC last year.
The rebooted “Roseanne” was pulled last May after a racist Twitter rant by Barr.
The conversation later turned to what Owens, a conservative pundit, called “the believe women thing.”
Barr said it was recently suggested to her that women who made allegations of sexual harassment and assault as part of the #MeToo movement “were there in the room because they thought they were getting a job 15 years ago.”
“Well, cause they’re hos,” Barr said. “Like if you don’t run out of the room and go, ‘Excuse me, you talk to me like that, you don’t do that to me, excuse 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.”
#MeToo was founded in 2006 by activist Tarana Burke to help survivors of sexual violence.
Barr and Owens took exception to those who have said they were victimized.
“They’re pretending they didn’t go to trade sexual favors for money,” Barr said.
CNN has reached out to #MeToo organizers for comment.
