Rosie O'Donnell Calls Out David Letterman For Being 'Anti-Gay'

rosie calls letterman antigay

Looks like this is getting UG-LY real quick!

Last Tuesday night, after Rosie O'Donnell announced her engagement to Michelle Rounds, David Letterman cracked the following joke about the two:

"The woman she is marrying, her fiancee, was driving…and her car broke down. And guess what happened? Rosie pulls up right behind her in her tow truck."

Here's what Rosie had to say in response to Dave's joke:

"Why is that, Dave? Why? I don't remember making fun of you when you had sex with all your interns, Dave. I didn't do that. I didn't make fun of your rampant, throbbing heterosexuality, did I Dave?"

Rosie ALSO created a list of the top five reasons why she refuses to appear on Dave's show. Here are a couple of her highlights:

"Dave, when you had that heart surgery, you shouldn't have told the doctors to take out the whole thing"

"Not only do you appear to be antigay, you're anti-tow trucker."

Do U agree with Rosie? Does it seem like David Letterman has a problem with the gays? Or was he just kidding around???

    Dave is not anti-gay. He is anti-Rosie. Big difference!

  3. 3

    Doesn't appear anti-gay to me. He just appears Anti Rosie which is fine because she has NEVER EVER EVER been funny in her life. Here are my top 5 reasons she isn't on Letterman
    5) She isn't funny!!
    4 She isn't funny!
    3) She isn't funny.
    2) Dave doesn't want her on the show.
    1) She really isn't funny!!!!

    omfg it was a JOKKEEE geees. Not everything is racist or homophobic. god. I'm gay and I can tell the difference between someone calling me a F*ggot on the street and someone making a funny joke. U

  5. 5

    Perez you seem really inconsistent with who you raise issues with on a personal level. With so many other people who have made cracks at the gay community you've gone after them and let your opinion known, yet not in this case? Why the inconsistency? Just wondering….

  6. 6

    I DON'T think he is antigay, but I do think he is a horrible person. I would pick Rosie's side over his any day.

  7. 7

    He is a comedian! Something you would no nothing about, you fat-ass troll! Rosie gives lesbians a bad name!

  8. 8

    I really, really, really want to see the homophobia in this joke, but could someone explain it to me? Are lesbians often associated with being tow truck drivers? Is that it? I just don't get it.

  9. 9

    Lighten up Rosie.

  10. 10

    Watch it Dave, (g)Ros(s)ie might eat you with a side order of fava beans.

  11. 11

    David Letterman is NOT funny, nor will he ever be funny. He is very mean spirited with what he thinks is comedy. Rosie is so much better than him anyday. She is certainly funnier and is much kinder.

  12. 12

    Rosie has an issue; deep internal issue. Some of the Crap that comes out of her mouth is way worse than his joke. Her big mouth will fail her again. She's on fire and waiting to explode on ANYONE. She's the one with the issue. I'm damn tired o fher shoving her "sexuality" down our throats. Heteros don't do that, but we are supposed to listen to her opinion everytime she opens her mouth? STFU and maybe, just maybe, people won't get sick of your opinionated crap.

  13. 13

    She's a former comedian that's become too hypersensitive. no bueno. #teamDave on this one…

  14. 14

    I like Rosie and Dave…. but a joke is a joke, and I think what Dave said was funny!

  15. 15

    I do not think he is funny, but she repulses me with her BIG mouth.

  16. 16

    it's a joke Rosie…..move on! man, people get their panties in a wrinkle over anything nowa days. smh

  17. 17

    you got anti-gay from that? (roll eyes) isnt she a bit old to be so immaturely sensitive? she makes all us gays look bad. These types of stories do not help anyone Perez. it only makes gays sound like a bunch of hyper senstive alarmist cry babies who are searching for a reason to be offended all the time or our day is just not complete. very frustrating. Rosie needs a good therapist.

  18. 18

    Poor Rosie, poor fat ass no talant Rosie
    Her show is doing so bad, she has to know bring up Trump again
    and try to pick a fight with Letterman
    If she would stoop so low as to go on with Joy Behard, she would go anywhere
    If she wants to play a game of 5 REASON WHY.
    how about 5 REASONS WHY Big O will can your ass

  19. 19

    That fat kunt calls everyone anti gay. His comment was a joke about how dykey she looks, and from where I stand, he is right on the money. I'm getting so tired of all this wining from the gays, get the fuck over it.

  20. 20

    Dave is a mean, evil spirited guy. I wonder though, if Rosie is really upset about Dave comparing her to a tow truck driver? TTD's are usually equated to big, sloppy, obese men.
    Dave is so ugly, he really shouldn't be making fun of anyone for their looks.

  21. 21

    Maybe what Dave was getting at is that Rosie acts like a rough gruff unladly like unclassy tow truck driver. She is over weight never looks put together and basically looks like a man. Not necessarlly a comment onher being gaymore about her appearance and attitude IMHO>

  22. 22

    I love Rosie, but think she's a little off track here. I have heard HER tell the old "What does a lesbian bring on a second date?" (a moving van) joke, which is virtually the same joke Dave told. I don't find either joke anti-gay, they are jokes, that's all, just jokes.

  23. 23

    That's not in the least bit anti-gay. It's just saying Rosie looks like a truck driver. She is way too sensitive.

  24. 24

    Frankly, I can't stand either one of them (they're so annoying) but Rosie does have a point.

    What a miserable old cow. She will never have a happy relationship because she's a miserable person. She hates herself for who she is and she takes it out on everyone else…and the reason she didn't make fun of his "heterosexuality" is because there's nothing funny or abnormal about that…like there is with homosexuality.

  26. 26

    I would like to say that I think neither is very funny. I would be the first to agree with Rosie if she said that Dave was an asshole, but I don't think he's homophobic or "anti-gay". Rosie is just being overly sensitive. He's not the first comedian to make a crack on her. (See Chelsea Handler)

  27. 27

    I wish Rosie would just shut up and go far far away. Stupid fat D*ke!

  28. 28

    So fucking sick of gays who can dish it out but can't take it. O'Donnell is a comedian who has insulted and made jokes about straight people, this joke was tame. And after condemning Letterman she immediately lowers herself and cracks jokes about him. What a hypocritical cow. And this is why her act has grown old and her shows fail. The public got tired of her agenda and never ending flaunting of her lifestyle, she's the gay Jehovah who's always annoyingly pushing their beliefs on others, when it's not wanted. Gays are their own worse enemies but they just don't get it.

  29. 29

    I wouldn't call Dave anti-gay! But I would call him anti-fat, ugly bovine! Rosie never had talent, never will! She is just trying to make herself relevant!

  30. 30

    All towtruck drivers are rude, slovenly and uncouth.
    Rosie is a fat foul-mouthed tub of guts.
    Therefore, Rosie must be a towtruck driver.
    Where does gay come into this equation?

  31. 31

    Rosie O'Donnell is fat and gross and mean and ugly. Who the hell cares about her anyway??? YUK!

  32. Zoss says – reply to this


    Letterman is homophobic & bully. Look how he bullies Leno all the time. Rosie has the guts to stand up to him when no one has except Behar!

  33. 33

    she is pissed about this but yet she kissed tracy morgan's ass. let's see, "tow truck" or "killing son because he's gay", wow rosie seems to have her priorities messed up.

  34. 34

    Letterman is a narcissist and an arse. One of the biggest douchebags there is.

  35. @v@ says – reply to this


    Are there going to be gloves off topics for comedians? Plenty of jokes floated around during Dave's intern days. Should comedy be politically correct? Not sure here.

  36. 36

    IT WAS a fucking JOKE! Rosie is again being a professional victim, she is not now nor ever has been relevant. Drop dead pigglet

  37. 37

    Dave is a douche…..

  38. 38

    I love how so called ”Çomedians” hide their hatred and bigotry behind comedy…”I was just making a joke”…being different isn't something to be joking about.

  39. 39

    Re: Mydoona
    you are so right
    Joy Behar, Whoopie etc. all use the "it was just a joke" when they get their feet held to the fire because of their hateful barbs …they do not fool anyone with a brain..their agendss are obvious!

  40. 40

    Lighten up rosie…..It was ajoke….

  41. 41

    Lighten-up….the older i get you realize that some stereotypes are funny, and a bit true.
    I see NOTHING wrong with what dave said. Why is it even an issue……jeeze…really perez, your perpetuating the attitude that gays Have NO sense of humor..any tiny statement, you take offense….ridiculous

  42. 42

    Used to watch her, not any more, she is just not funny like she used to be and only trying to keep her name in the headlines ortabloids.

  43. 43

    OK Really…………..she is just disgusting. Her fiancee is beautiful and I she must have celebrity envy or something.

  44. 44

    Re: LovesGossip – Rosie is disgusting and aggressive and…..can't you see that?

  45. 45

    Re: JasonDiggy – me too! totally over my head!

  46. 46

    I don't know if he is anti - gay or not and I don't care. E

  47. 47

    If he is anti-gay - so what? It is his right to be anti-gay if he wants to be.It is not illegal to have a contrary opinion in this country (at least not yet)

  48. 48

    I'm surprised she got that mad. He wasn't making fun of all gay people, just her.

  49. 49

    ROSIE, surprisingly humorless for a comedienne.
    Then again, many lesbians are humorless.
