What Rosie O’Donnell Just Said Will Have Mothers of Autistic Children Rightfully Outraged

Rosie O’Donnell has gone from being one of Hollywood’s most beloved celebrities to one of its most hated. And it’s because she says terrible things like this:

Rosie O’Donnell joked she would trade each of her four teenagers for three autistic triplets during a stand-up set in New York on Sunday.

‘My teenagers are a nightmare, they’re horrible,’ Rosie, who is estranged from her eldest daughter Chelsea, 18, said at The Fund for Women’s Equality & The ERA Coalition’s A Night of Comedy with Jane Fonda.

The mother of five quipped that she decided to adopt a newborn baby even though she had four other teens so that she could remind herself why she had kids in the first place, according to People.

‘I had four teenagers when I decided to adopt a newborn baby. You might ask why. Because I had four teenagers and I needed to remind myself that I actually do love children,’ O’Donnell said before adding, ‘Because I would trade each teen for autistic triplets, I am just saying I would.’

Rosie joked about family matters and named her children without mentioning Chelsea, with whom she had a very public feud last year.

‘My son told me he’s writing a book, Life With Mom: Not So Rosie.,’ Rosie said during her set. ‘I found it annoying.’

‘I did the best I could,’ she added. ‘They blame you for everything.’

Because autistic triplets would be just the worst thing ever, right? And it’s also just really lovely for her to air all of her dirty laundry about how terrible her children are to her. Great parenting, Rosie. Way to go.
