American actress and comedian Roseanne Barr has come out swinging against the use of the homophobic slur “faggot” before declaring herself as “queer” in a recent video which has since been deleted off her Youtube channel.
According to People.com a clearly agitated Barr ranted, “The word faggot is a really hateful word, isn’t it? 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.”
Barr who then continued on and referred to herself as “queer” said, “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.”
The 66-year-old who seemed to be using the term queer as synonymous with strange or odd, added, “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. I did put the Q in it, bye.”
