Roseanne Barr has come under fire again for making controversial comments about the Holocaust.
The embattled comedian claimed “nobody died in the Holocaust” during a recent episode of the podcast “This Past Weekend with Theo Von.”
“That’s the truth. It should happen,” Barr, 70, said to host Theo Von.
“Six million Jews should die right now because they cause all the problems in the world. But, it never happened. It never happened.”
The stand-up comic, whose series “Roseanne” was canceled in 2018 following her racist tweets, went on to say that she is “100 percent” Jewish.
Prior to her comments on the Holocaust, the “Roseanne Barr: Cancel This!” star had been discussing the idea of “truth” in regards to the 2020 presidential election, which some believed to be rigged.
“There’s such a thing as the truth and facts and we have to stick to it,” she said.
Von, 43, whose podcast is known for stoking controversy, claimed Barr’s remarks were meant to be “sarcastic.”
“This Roseanne Barr clip was sarcasm folks. A clip taken out of a long sarcastic rant she had during our chat. Can we not recognize sarcasm anymore?” he tweeted Tuesday.
“She is a mensch and one of the funniest people i’ve ever met,” Von added.
Amid the backlash to Barr’s statements, her son, Jake Pentland, also spoke out in her defense.
“We are embarrassed that people are stupid enough not to recognize Roseanne is being sarcastic,” he told TMZ Tuesday.

“We think it’s funny that people are so stupid. Let’s stop doing this clickbait s—t, we need to focus on big problems in America. Focusing on out-of-context clips is what morons do.”
Page Six has reached out to Barr’s reps for comment.
Social media users had a lot to say in response to the viral podcast clip.
“There is NOT one damn thing that is even close to funny in Roseanne Barr’s vile outrageous LIES,” one user wrote.
“I have looked into the eyes of a holocaust survivor and listened to her speak of her experience … Roseanne Barr needs to check herself into the looney bin,” another tweeted.
A third person also criticized Von for giving Barr a platform.
“[He] seemingly allowed Roseanne Barr to spew holocaust denial nonsense on his podcast. He’s been trying to defend it with full context clips, but I watched that one as well and it didn’t make it any better so I’m unsure what he was thinking,” the user wrote.
Back in 2018, ABC cancelled her eponymous sitcom after she compared former president Barack Obama’s adviser Valerie Jarrett to an ape and claimed George Soros was a Nazi sympathizer.
