Angelina Jolie is "evil spawn", says comedienne Roseanne Barr.
The American actress has verbally attacked Angelina - who is a UN Goodwill Ambassador - and her "vacuous" long-term partner Brad Pitt for not donating more money to charity, while also branding their children "dunces".
In a post entitled Jon Voight, who is Angelina's estranged father, Roseanne wrote on her official website: "Your evil spawn Angelina Jolie and her vacuous lover Brad Pitt make about $40 million a year in violent, psychopathic movies and give away three of it to starving children, trying to look as if they give a c**p about humanity as they spit out more dunces that will consume more than their fair share and wreck the earth even more."
Angelina and Brad have three adopted children - seven-year-old son, Maddox, from Cambodia, along with son Pax, four, from Vietnam and three-year-old daughter Zahara from Ethiopia. The couple also have a two-year-old biological daughter, Shiloh, and twins Vivienne and Knox, who were born last month.
Roseanne has also slammed the 'Wanted' actress for remaining undecided on who to support in the race to become the next US President.
The 55-year-old comic star insists Angelina should be rooting for Democrat hopeful Barack Obama over Republican candidate John McCain.
She added: "Miss. Jolie says she likes McCain too and hasn't decided who to endorse. Aren't you supposed to be somewhat enlightened, or do you not know that the African daughter you hold in every picture had parents who suffered and died because of the Republican Party's worldwide economic assault on Africa over the last few decades since Reagan?
Your sons are also victims of America's right wing military incursions too.
"It might be good for your Asian and African children's self-esteem to know you support Barack Obama for the leader of the free world."
