Video of Rosie O’Donnell’s confrontation with street preacher surfaces

Man calls star a 'wicked ungodly woman' and a 'lesbian pig'

Video of Rosie O’Donnell’s confrontation with street preacher surfaces
16 April 2012

Rosie O'Donnell is not one to shy away from a face-to-face confrontation as Elizabeth Hasselbeck learned when they co-hosted The View together all those years ago.

This time, Rosie's debate opponent was a street preacher at the Super Bowl who began shouting insults at O'Donnell as she walked by with her family.

Video of the February incident surfaced on Monday (16 April).

'You are an ungodly, wicked woman on your way to hell,' the man says to O'Donnell. 'You need to get saved.'

O'Donnell then says to him: 'Enjoy your life behind the bigotry.'

When he asks her to quote a verse from the Bible, she said 'Jesus wept.' Then she added: 'At you! Because you didn’t get the whole meaning of what he was about.'

Things deteriorated further as Rosie walked away and the man says: 'Go home and do the dishes! That’s your job.'

Through being polite, O'Donnell replies: 'I’m going home to f*** my wife.'

This led to her being called a 'pig, a lesbian pig.'

O'Donnell's The Rosie Show was canceled last month by The Oprah Winfrey Network after less than six months on the air. She will guest star on pal Fran Drescher's sitcom Happily Divorced on TV Land next month.
