The ever “nutty” Roseanne Barr was recently spotted at an Occupy Wall Street protest in Waimea on the Big Island of Hawaii.
The ex Hollywood reality star, who made international headlines recently when she proposed bringing back the guillotine to “behead” those who won’t give up their wealth, is a multi millionaire herself.
According to CelebrityNetworth.com, Barr’s net worth is $80 million.
But that didn’t stop Barr from slumming it out with those protesting the “1 percent”, or in her case, the other millionaires like her.
A Big Island resident who sent the photo to Hawaii Reporter said “Isn’t it hilarious when nutball Hollywood millionaires try to pretend they are actually one of the proletariat?”
The proudly vile actress lives at least part time on the Big Island, where she filmed 16 episodes of a Hamakua-based reality show, Roseanne’s Nuts, before the Lifetime series was canceled after just one season.
She also has been involved with Occupy Wall Street protests in New York.
CelebrityNetworth.com challenged Barr and other wealthy celebrities on their support for the movement, and got push back from Barr. The web site writes:
“If you recall, Celebrity Net Worth was one of the first outlets to point out the irony in Roseanne Barr calling for all rich people to be beheaded when she herself has a net worth of $80 million. Within 15 minutes of publishing our original article, we received a series of ridiculous angry tweets from Roseanne herself via Twitter where she called us “lying pieces of commie shit”. We responded with an open letter to Roseanne where we asked some very basic questions about her involvement in the Occupy movement. Specifically how she has the right to support the 99% when her wealth puts her squarely in the .01%. No response was received from Ms. Barr.
“After our little spat with Roseanne we published a list of the 10 Richest Celebrities Supporting Occupy Wall Street. Let me stress here that we really do not have anything against the Occupy Movement. But we do find it ironic when people like Alec Baldwin, who gets paid to hawk Capital One credit cards, rally against the banking industry. Or Russel Simmons who is worth $325 million and has his very own line of high fee, high interest credit cards called UniRush Financial Services. Or, our personal favorite Kanye West who shows up to #OWS wearing tens of thousands of dollars worth of clothes and jewelry.”
Barr, who also claims to be running for president under the ‘Green Tea Party’ banner and once said she would also be running for Prime Minister of Israel, made international news when she said on Russia Today television, that bankers should give back profits and government bail out money they received in 2008 or face “beheading.” She added that if she were president, she would bring back the guillotine as a form of punishment and no longer “let children see their guilty leaders get away with murder.”
