AceShowbiz - Roseanne Barr recently made some controversial comments about #MeToo movement in which she called the movement's advocates "hos." And now, "Black-ish" actor Anthony Anderson has weighed in on the rant, claiming it's all a cry for help.
Talking to TMZ when he left a restaurant in Los Angeles on Sunday, March 3, the actor expressed his opinion on the putdown. "I'll say this... I don't know what she said, I just heard about what she said," the 48-year-old actor said, "But what I heard.. some people need help."
Barr previously blasted #MeToo movement during her appearance on "Candace Owens Show" where she discussed a myriad of topics with the interviewer and hit on a lot of controversial subjects. "They're pretending that they didn't go to trade sexual favors for money," the "Roseanne" alum said rhetorically of women who find themselves in a man's hotel room at 3 A.M. "I know a ho when I see one."
In addition, she turned on some of her former Hollywood peers. "When I went to bat for Sandra (Bernhard), Kathy (Griffin) and Sara (Gilbert) to get them on TV - because I gave them all their TV jobs... you know what people at the networks told me? 'Those girls are too ugly to go on TV,' " Barr claimed. "And I said, 'This is so incredibly sexist. Look at me, I'm no beauty. You can't take talent, for a woman, and reduce it to their facial flaws. Are you s**tting me?' "
This is hardly the first time for Barr to receive backlash over her remarks. The 66-year-old actress was fired from "Roseanne" reboot on ABC after she wrote a racist tweet about Valerie Jarrett, one of former U.S. President Barack Obama's top aides.
