Roseanne Barr Thinks Coronavirus Is a Conspiracy to 'Get Rid Of' Her Generation

Roseanne Barr is sharing her theory on the coronavirus pandemic and it’s probably not something that many people agree on.

The 67-year-old former TV star opened up during a phone call with Norm MacDonald for his YouTube talk show.

“I think they’re just trying to get rid of all my generation,” Roseanne said. “The boomer ladies that, you know, that inherited their, you know, are widows. They inherited the money so they got to go wherever the money is and figure out a way to get it from people.”

Roseanne Barr Says She's Queer: 'I Put the Q in LGBTQ'

Roseanne Barr may have just came out.

The 66-year-old former TV star shared a video on her YouTube Channel on Sunday (April 21) to talk about her disdain for the offensive term “f-g.”

“The word f-g is a really hateful word, isn’t it?” Roseanne shares. “Especially when it’s, like, one gay calling another gay guy that. Hooo, 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?’ … But it is a hateful word and we should get rid of it. Get rid of it being spoken.”

Roseanne then goes out to say that she identifies as “queer.”

“All that LGBTQ stuff, I put the ‘Q’ in LGBTQ, OK? ‘Cause I am queer as two mother–kers,” Rosanne continues. “I’m queer. I’m alien. I don’t belong here with all these people. They make no sense. They are very queer. And that makes me … a queer, I guess?”

Roseanne has since deleted the video.

Roseanne Barr is putting Natalie Portman on blast.

While promoting her upcoming trip to Israel in an interview with the Israel Hayom newspaper, the 66-year-old disgraced actress called the 37-year-old Oscar-winning actress “repulsive” for declining to accept an award in Israel back in April.

“It was really sickening, I find her repulsive,” Roseanne said of Natalie. “She was raised in incredible privilege of safety in the Jewish state and knows nothing about anti-Semitism.”

Back in April, Natalie declined the Genesis Prize because she “didn’t want to be seen endorsing” the Prime Minister of Israel, Benjamin Netanyahu, who was due to attend.

Roseanne added: “She’s the darling of the left here, the Jewish left in Hollywood, she is a complete hypocrite who grew up in safety and privilege, like I said before, and knows nothing about what she speaks of.”
