Rosie O’Donnell is accusing Kelly Ripa of making a homophobic remark.

On “The View” today, O’Donnell said Ripa reacted with a homophobic comment after Clay Aiken put his hand over her mouth while co-hosting "Live With Regis and Kelly" last Friday.

Ripa told Clay his actions were a “no, no,” adding “I don’t know where that hand’s been, honey.”

Aiken has been dogged by speculation about his sexuality but he’s never answered.

In a call to “The View” today, Ripa blasted O’Donnell’s comment as “outrageous.” She said Aiken’s actions were disrespectful and unprofessional — and that he was spreading germs, since he’d just shaken hands with a lot of audience members.
