Actress Roseanne Barr, whose rebooted ABC show was canceled last year after she sent a racist tweet, attacked the #MeToo movement in a new off-the-rails interview with conservative commentator Candace Owens.
The 66-year-old comedian, who last month attacked Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) as a “bug-eyed bitch,” mocked sexual assault accusers in the interview and called the #MeToo movement a “witch hunt.”
“If you don’t run out the room … but you stayed around because you’re like, ‘I thought maybe he was going to give me a writing job,’ well, you ain’t nothing but a ho,” Barr said during an episode Sunday of “The Candace Owens Show,” after being asking why women were in men’s hotel rooms late at night.
Barr and Owens compared the feminist movement to white supremacy. Barr also claimed #MeToo accusers are “pretending that they didn’t go to trade sexual favors for money.”
“I know a ho when I see one,” Barr exclaimed. “They need to be called out …That’s privilege, too – ho privilege.”
Barr then lashed out against Sen. Kamala Harris, nicknaming her “Kama Sutra Harris.”
“We all know what she did … she slept her way to the bottom,” Barr said, referring to the senator’s former relationship with ex-San Francisco Mayor Willie Brown.
Barr also attacked Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, who testified against now-Supreme Court Judge Brett Kavanaugh after accusing him of sexual misconduct.
“She should be in prison,” Barr said, adding that Ford used her “white woman privilege” to avoid time behind bars. She claimed that “nothing happened” to Ford.
“Women are encouraged to be conniving,” Barr said.
“Conniving little wimps,” Owens agreed.
Owens, the director of communications for Turning Point USA, made headlines last week after she attempted to disprove the existence of racism during a speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) on Friday by explaining that she herself has “never been a slave in this country.”
“Stop selling us our own oppression,” she said. “Stop taking away our self-confidence by telling us that we can’t because of racism, because of slavery. I’ve never been a slave in this country.”
