Roseanne Barr left many on social media scratching their heads Friday night after she repeated a right-wing conspiracy theory that President Trump freed children trapped in bondage.

“President Trump has freed so many children held in bondage to pimps all over this world. Hundreds each month. He has broken up trafficking rings in high places everywhere,” she wrote.

By all accounts, the comedian appeared to be referring to a conspiracy theory made by “QAnon.” Their online campaign – which is also called “The Storm” — says that there is a secret anti-Trump sect in the “deep state” that takes part in things like a child sex-trafficking ring.

Barr has touched on conspiracy theories in the past. In November, she asked her followers on Twitter, “who is Q?” That was quickly followed up with another tweet that read, “tell Qanon to DM me in the next 24 hours.”

The comedian’s mention of Trump’s part in stopping human trafficking has stirred up an interesting assortment of reactions on social media.

“Kindly provide real figures and facts to back up your claim somehow I doubt the veracity of what you have posted,” reads one Tweet.

Patton Oswald poked a little fun at Barr…

While another tweet suggested that if she continued walking the political path, her show might provoke chants of boycott.

And then there’s the President Obama defense…

Barr, who has remained active on Twitter since her self-titled ABC show was revived earlier this month to huge ratings, stepped back into the discussion Saturday morning and said she had enough of the whole matter.

“i thought today was a good day to talk about freeing kids from sex slavery, since it is Passover. I didn’t realize that so many were not aware of it. Anyway, no more opinions from me on twitter, it invites bullying. Moving on.”
