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!
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…
