Roseanne calls herself 'queer' in latest YouTube rant

Roseanne Barr is wishing everyone a happy Easter....or is she?

The 66-year-old controversial comedian uploaded two YouTube videos over the weekend and ranted about the use of homophobic slurs. 

The first video called, "Happy Easter from the Jews" ended with the actress calling someone a “f-g” and blaming God for her nicotine addiction.

In the second video she shared, titled "The word ‘fa*’ is h8ful-I put the Q in LGBTQ," Barr bizarrely ranted for one minute and 13 seconds about her association with the word "queer." 

“The word f-g is a really hateful word, isn’t it?. 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! 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. Okay, I get your rules. But it is a hateful word and we should get rid of it. Get rid of it being spoken,” the "Roseanne" star said to the camera.

“All that LGBTQ stuff, okay let me just be real, I put the Q in LGBTQ. Okay? Cause I am queer as two motherf---ers. I’m queer, I’m alien, I don’t belong here with all these people. They makes no sense. They are very queer. And that makes me a queer, I guess. But I did put the Q in it. Bye!”

While it's unclear what prompted Barr's troublesome statements, the actress has had a slew of controversial interviews since ABC fired her from the successful "Roseanne" reboot. 

Nearly a year ago, the ABC network pulled the plug on the show after Rosenane made a comment on Twitter referring to former Obama aide Valerie Jarrett as the offspring of the “Muslim Brotherhood & Planet of the Apes.”
