Roseanne Barr believes she got the shaft and she is not wrong. She was fired from ABC for some tweets about Valerie Jarret.
Roseanne said she was all looped out when she made what she considered jokes and not racist statements.
Taking a flyer on specific cases and what is or what is not acceptable, America needs, as a rule, to lighten the f*ck up. The PC culture has gotten out of hand and has ceased being constructive and is simply a destructive mechanism for anyone you disagree with.
Which presents two problems for the left. One, everyone has skeletons and what goes around comes around ( see Kirsten Gillibrand).
Two, we all know that one comment does not define us so if the left continues this hypocritical march to zero tolerance, they will absolutely alienate and lose a huge percentage of the population.
From Fox News:
Roseanne Barr believes former first lady Michelle Obama is responsible for getting her fired from her eponymous ABC reboot.
The hit reboot of “Roseanne” was famously canceled in May 2018 after Barr, 66, posted a series of tweets deemed racist and Islamophobic, including one likening former President Barack Obama’s aide Valerie Jarrett to someone from “Planet of the Apes” and the Islamic Brotherhood.
Barr initially took responsibility for the remark, which she has alternately blamed on using Ambien and supporting President Trump, but now she believes the former first lady is behind her getting the reboot the boot.
“[Obama] said, ‘This tweet is unforgivable.’ That’s what I was told and I tend to believe it, because the woman who fired me is now working with the Obamas at Netflix,” Barr fumed to The Sunday Times (via The Sun).
Barr appeared to be referring to Channing Dungey, the former ABC Entertainment president responsible for canceling “Roseanne.” Netflix hired her late last year to work on original programming, including content from the Obamas’ Higher Ground Productions.
In late May 2018, Barr retweeted a fan who claimed that the Obamas were behind her firing, though she never said so herself until this week. She replied to the tweet at the time, “Is this true?”
The claim has never actually been substantiated.
