Anthony Anderson Says Rosanne Barr Is Among People Who ‘Need Help’ After She Calls #MeToo Accusers ‘Hos’

Rosanne Barr’s recent remarks about the #MeToo movement have flabbergasted the public, and actor Anthony Anderson says based on what he knows about her comments she ought to get some help.

On Sunday, March 3, Barr appeared on conservative commentator Candace Owens’ web show, “The Candace Owens Show” and discussed a host of political topics, including the movement against sexual harassment and sexual assault.

“She said something to me about, ‘Well, they were there in the room because they thought they were going to get a job 15 years ago,'” Barr said of the Hollywood women who spoke out over the last two years about their claims of executives taking advantage of them. “It’s because they’re hos.”

“If you don’t run out the room, and go, ‘Excuse me, you don’t talk to me that way, you don’t do that to me, excuse me,’ and leave, but you stayed around because you’re, like,” Barr said, mimicking a cry, “‘I thought maybe he was gonna give me a writing job,’ well you ain’t nothing but a ho,” continued before claiming women were “pretending that they didn’t go to trade sexual favors for money.”

Anderson admitted he didn’t know exactly what Barr had said on the show, but he clearly was not in agreement with her stance.

“I’ll say this,” the “Black-ish” star says to TMZ Monday before pausing briefly. “I don’t know what she said, I just heard about what she said so … I can’t give you my opinion of it. But what I heard, some people need help, from what I heard.”

Anderson himself is no stranger to having issues with Barr — or at least, fans of his ABC sitcom aren’t.

Last year, ratings for the reboot of her ’80s sitcom “Roseanne” took a dive a week after the show delivered a crack at Anderson’s hit comedy.

“We missed all the shows about Black and Asian families,” Barr’ TV husband said.

“They’re just like us. There, now you’re all caught up,” her character replied with snark.

“Black-ish” remains a staple of ABC, while Barr’s racist remarks about a former White House aide caused the network to scrap her show.
