Roseanne Barr unleashed on the #MeToo movement in her latest string of unhinged comments.
The 66-year-old comedian called the women who come forward with allegations of sexual harassment and assault “hos” during an interview with conservative commentator Candace Owens Sunday.
Referencing a conversation she had the other day, Barr said that a woman told her, “‘well they were there in the [hotel] room ’cause they thought they were gonna get a job 15 years ago.’ It’s like well, ’cause they’re hos.”
She goes on to say women were pretending “they didn’t go to trade sexual favors for money.”
Owens echoed her sentiment, comparing the feminist movement to white supremacy.
The #MeToo movement has empowered women across the country to come forward with accusations of sexual misconduct.
But Barr didn’t stop there with her tirade. She also went after 2020 presidential hopeful Kamala Harris.
“We all know what she did … she slept her way to the bottom,” she said.
Harris was in a relationship with former San Francisco Mayor Willie Brown in the 1990s.
Owens took part in her own fair share of demeaning discourse, as well.
When discussing Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, the Trump supporter said “she should be in prison.”
Ford testified against then-Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh after accusing him of sexual misconduct. Kavanaugh, who denied the allegations, was later confirmed as a Supreme Court Justice.
Barr, who was fired from the “Roseanne” reboot after she posted a racist tweet, and Owens called their discussion “real feminism.”
