Roseanne Barr says she is "queer," and then denounces the word "f*g" in a video rant posted to YouTube.
"The word f-g is a really hateful word, isn’t it?," she said.
Barr added: "Especially when it’s one gay calling another gay guy that. Whoo… 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? … Oh, I just can’t say the word. Well, I can when I’m in the house, but I can’t say it outside 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."
She continued: "All that LGBTQ stuff let me just be real I put the Q in LGBTQ because I’m as queer as two motherf–kers. I’m queer," Barr said. "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. I did put the Q in it, bye."
It’s unclear if Barr means she identifies sexually as queer, or as an alternative to the mainstream.
AUDIO: ROSEANNE BARR ON BEING QUEER
Lori Loughlin and her husband Mossimo Giannulli are demanding that prosecutors fork over their evidence before the case against them moves forward, The Blast reports. The pair have pleaded not guilty to allegations that they conspired with coaches and admissions counselors to falsify records and get their daughters Olivia Jade and Bella into USC. They also allegedly shelled out $500K, prosecutors say.
Loughlin and Giannulli have also asked to suspend by the government until the scheduled hearing June 3rd.
They were among 50 people charged on March 12th by the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Massachusetts. The most other high-profile figure in the case, Felicity Huffman, pleaded guilty and apologized profusely. Huffman is reportedly facing less prison time; about a year compared with Loughlin’s reported 20-40 for the degree of crimes committed.
In a filing, they state they "would like an opportunity to review discovery in a meaningful way before the filing of substantive motions in this case. Litigating substantive motions in a piecemeal fashion and before Defendants have an opportunity to become familiar with the government’s evidence could substantially prejudice the Defendants’ ability to make proper legal arguments to contest the allegations."
According to a report in People, Loughlin is concerned that her children are also being targeted by prosecutors.
"Lori will not do anything to put her daughters in harm’s way," the source tells People. "She is like a mama bear when it comes to the girls, and she will do whatever she has to do to protect them from prosecution, especially malicious prosecution. Her top priority in all of this is to protect her daughters."
"The prosecution could easily charge the daughters in an attempt to get them Loughlin and Giannulli to plead guilty," the source says. "But investigators have not disclosed any information that they may or may not have that would implicate either one of the daughters."

When Nicolas Cage filed for an annulment after less than a week of marriage, he claimed Erika Koike had defrauded him by covering up her past criminal history. He also said decision to marry was made "on impulse and without the ability to recognize or understand the full impact of his actions."
Some reports claimed he was intoxicated at the time. But still, Koike is demanding spousal support, TMZ reports, claiming in legal papers that he asked her to start their relationship again "in the right way" less than two weeks after filing for an annulment.
Koike claims her long relationship with Cage made her lose out on career opportunities, and this his claims have damaged her career further.

It worked for one reality star, maybe it will work for them! The Giudice family is following in Kim Kardashian’s footsteps by appealing to President Donald Trump themselves about their ultimate passion project: Joe.
The Real Housewives of New Jersey star is an Italian native, and despite being raised in the U.S., he is being sent back to the Boot after spending 41 months in prison for tax fraud. His wife, Teresa, also spent 11 months in prison, but can remain here because she’s a U.S. native. Before the judge ruled on appeal that Joe would be deported, Teresa said she’d divorce him if he had to go back.
Their four daughters have mounted a social media appeal Wrote Milania in a message that also tagged Trump: "It’s not the same without you. I miss you terribly. I wouldn’t be the person I am today with out you. I wouldn’t know how to stay strong. I need you home daddy. All I want is to be a family again. I love you endlessy buddy."
In an Instagram repost of a family portrait, Giudice's eldest daughter, Gia, 18, also asked the president to spare her father, who "committed a minor crime to support his family."
Social media has not embraced their cause with enthusiasm, with many pointing out that he committed a "not that minor" crime, and that, if they want to stick together, should consider moving to Italy.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have just settled into their new home near Windsor Castle, Frogmore Cottage, and the arrival of their first child is expected any day now. But according to the Sunday Times of London, the pair are seriously mulling a move to Africa. If they do move abroad, their royal duties would entail charity work and promoting Britain.
The move comes amid almost nonstop reports of a royal feud between Harry and his brother Prince William and Meghan and her sister-in-law, Kate. The latest evidence of that—according to their fans on social media at least—was Kate and William’s decision to post a happy birthday family shot to the Queen that didn’t include Meghan. (The Queen turned 93 on Easter). Also: when William and Harry saw each other at Easter services they reportedly didn’t interact.
Fan reaction skewed from mildly negative to borderline hysterical: "Why deliberately leave Meghan out???," "Methinks someone is missing from the photo," and the apocalyptic, "But were is Meghan? An official photo without her...WHY?!"
Still, others defended Kate. Wrote one: "It’s the Queen’s birthday, not Meghan’s."
