Barr: #MeToo at­tack vic­tims – they’re hoes

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

COM­EDY leg­end Roseanne Barr has launched an at­tack on the #MeToo move­ment.

Barr, 66 ( above), who was fired from ABC’s Roseanne for a racist tweet in May last year, sat down with far-right com­men­ta­tor Can­dace Owens for an in­ter­view pub­lished on Sun­day.

“They were there in the room be­cause they thought they were go­ing to get a job 15 years ago. Cuz they’re hoes,” Barr told Owens as they dis­cussed their views on the #MeToo move­ment.

Barr said some of the women who were in men’s ho­tel rooms at 3am are “pre­tend­ing that they didn’t go to trade sex­ual favours for money”.

#MeToo was founded in 2006 by ac­tivist Tarana Burke, who started us­ing the term to raise aware­ness of sex­ual abuse and as­sault.

It be­came a broader move­ment in 2017 when al­le­ga­tions rang­ing from rape to sex­ual ha­rass­ment came out against film boss Har­vey We­in­stein. BRICKLEHAMPTON is the long­est place name in the UK with no re­peated let­ters. MULLING IT OVER: Lisa has had big of­fers CHILD star Dana started ap­pear­ing in TV ad­verts from an early age, but there was one role that re­ally de­fined her.

She starred as Kim­ber­ley Drum­mond in the leg­endary U.S. sit­com and stayed there for six years.

Af­ter leav­ing the show, she in­vested in a boob job and ap­peared in sev­eral soft-core adult flicks like dur­ing which she de­clared she was a les­bian – only to change her mind later.

Sadly, she died in 1999 aged just 34.
