Roseanne Barr slammed the use of the homophobic slur “faggot” and declared herself “queer” in a video rant posted on Sunday.
“The word faggot is a really hateful word, isn’t it?” Barr says in the video according to People. “Especially when it’s like one gay calling another gay guy that. 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? What? Oh, 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. OK, I get your rules.’ But it is a hateful word and you should get rid of it. Get rid of it being spoken.”
She continues on to call herself “queer” saying, “All that LGBTQ stuff, OK let me just be real. I put the Q in LGBTQ, OK? Because I am queer as two motherf**kers. I’m queer. I’m alien.”
Barr appears to be using queer as synonymous with strange or odd.
“I don’t belong here with all these people. They make no sense,” Barr adds. “They are very queer and that makes me a queer, I guess. I did put the Q in it, bye.”
The video has since been deleted from her YouTube channel.
