Comedian Roseanne Barr has seriously pushed the bar with a new photo spread that depicts her as a domesticated version of Adolf Hitler for Jewish humor magazine Heeb.
At her request, Heeb photographed Barr wearing the infamous Hitler moustache and a swastika, holding and preparing to take a bite of what the article refers to as “burnt Jew cookies.”
The shocking photos and interview are the first time the comedian has been seen after a “self-imposed” exile.
The article describes Barr – who is Jewish – as nailing the “Fuehrer’s facial expressions with twisted glee.”
Later, the 55-year-old actress put the “swastika armband, one of the gingerbread victims and a Polaroid of herself in the costume in a Ziploc bag, making it look like evidence from some bizarre crime scene.”
Barr told the magazine she planned to bring the twisted souvenirs to her 13-year-old son when she picked him up from school.
“Maybe this will make my kid like me,” she said.
Barr is best known for her self-titled series on ABC “Roseanne,” which ran from 1988 to 1997. She briefly hosted her own talk show, “The Roseanne Show” before debuting a cooking program entitled “Domestic Goddess.” Most recently, she co-hosted a one hour show on KPFK, Pacifica Radio.
