WTF Alert: Roseanne Barr Blames Suicide of Marie Osmond's Son on Sexual Preference, Church

by at . Comments

Late last month, the 17-year old son of Marie Osmond jumped from his Los Angeles apartment building and killed himself.

It was a tragic event and the reaction of most celebrities was to pass along their sympathy to the family before politely leaving the Osmonds alone. Except for Roseanne Barr, that is.

The former sitcom star has taken to her blog and randomly cited Marie's son's homosexuality as the basis for his death, placing a lot of blame on the Osmond's church and pretty much calling Marie a liar.

She wrote the following:

marie osmonds poor gay son killed himself... because he had been told how wrong and how sick he was every day of his life by his church and the people in it. Calling that "depression" is a lie!

Yet the Osmonds still talk lovingly about their church, saying nothing about its extremely anti-gay Crusade. Marie also has a gay daughter! Hey, I want her and all the gay kids in the world to know that they are just fine being gay and that they deserve love and respect instead of insults and rebuke! I have gay people in my family and my circle of friends and I am kicking bigot ass and taking names!

She continued:

Marie please don't talk about how your faith in your church has helped you get through this one! Please get some integrity and tell that church of yours that you will leave it and stop giving it ten percent of your money if they don't stop trying to destroy your kids' and all gay people's civil rights and dreams and hopes!!

G-d is trying to use you for something good and this is your opportunity! Your church is wrong and on the wrong wrong wrong side of things! Get as vocal about that as you are about your diet. G-d bless you too, Marie.

The only reaction we can come up with to this: WTF?!? Who calls out the mother of a son that just committed suicide?!?

THG readers, send in your most hateful judgments on Roseanne right now...


This is the uglest pos on the planet. Bar is a disgusting fat trailer trash wench. Her opinion counts for nothing as this gross stripper is nothing but a huge tub of molten fat shit. Whoever sits next to her on a plane has to wear a gas mask.


How insensitive! It's hard to lose someone you love and for the record, NO ONE is perfect! Everyone makes mistakes and saying such cruel things about a mother who has just lost her son is so heartless. And by the way, people put too much emphasis on religion itself instead on our loving GOD...people have forgotten the truth...HE LOVES EVERYONE! NO MATTER WHAT! So lets stop judging each other and start showing love and compassion as GOD does and desires us too!


Ms. Barr's comments were entirely fair and accurate. Raising lgbt youth in the Mormon Church is child abuse.


Roseanne should have waited to say what she is saying and then make the statement more general
BUT she is right- It getting so boring isnt it- the way people pick on one anther for things that


Roseanne BarN's idea of being domesticated is cooking a batch of burned gingerbread jews while wearing a swastika on her shoulder. Now WTF is that? Take a look around the net, you'll see. She's a damned wanna be Hitler.


Nobody actually expects class or dignity from this irrelevant harridan do theyTo speak ill of the dead and to spit vitriol directly at their grieving families is ghastly behavior. I'd expect as much from this woman.


As a woman and mother, I am appalled at the lack of common civility and outright cruelty Roseanne Barr has extended to Marie Osmond just days after the loss of her son. Roseanne has despicably used another family’s tragedy as her stage to spew her insane trailer trash ramblings. While Roseanne likes to believe that she is spiritual and a cut above the rest, she is nothing more than an undomesticated goat made of mutton and dung. Even a goat knows when to shut up. Is there no end to your rabid bleatings, Roseanne BarN?


I think Rosanne could be right if Marie's son is gay. I think Marie is a huge hypocrite and who the hell goes back to work the day after their son's funeral? Marie is an insane mess. I admire Rosanne for having the guts to say! Good for her!


i think roseanne has a point, marie osmond talks very openly about how her church is great and all that but it promotes anti-gay, but her son was gay. and i agree with roseann... if you were told every day that you were a sinner and were going to hell if you didnt change your ways but you couldnt help who you liked, wouldnt that really suck and make you really sad?
i can totally see where roseann is coming from. i think she has a big point. she may have been harsh and blunt about it, but she has a point non the less.


Roseanne is the very character she played, very obnoxious on the show and she's the same way in real-life.
