Hollywoke thought they had finally dealt with the self-proclaimed “She-Devil” Roseanne Barr when they kicked her off her own TV show and tried to cancel her nationwide following a Tweet about Obama’s best pal Valorie Jarrette. Well the jokes on them because, as they said in the movie Poltergeist…She’s back!
Barr put her former overlords on blast in her recent expose, and she didn’t hold back anything.
“Any tweet that was not ‘I love Hillary Clinton,’ I got a call for,” Barr said of her controversial Tweeting habits.
Barr continued, “Everyone was begging me to give up my Twitter [use]. Everyone. My kids were trying to lock me out, but I wouldn’t because it’s like I just couldn’t.”
But Roseanne, an outspoken advocate of free speech after a career as in insult comic, stated: “I’m a ***damn American and I’m not going to do it. I’m a comic. I’m a bad girl. I’m too rock and roll. I’m going to say f— it and f— you until I take my last breath.”
She then began to reminisce about the Tweet that got her fired, which compared Obama’s pal Jarrette, who is black, to a character from Planet of the Apes. She blamed the decision on her use of Ambien at the time, “I shoulda not did it, but by God, I was really pissed that day. And I did something I wouldn’t do if I hadn’t been on that Ambien. It makes you do a lot of crazy s – – t.”
Rosanne explained how the network ABC called her up to ask why she had said what she did and her pointed response that probably got her in even more trouble, “When [ABC] called me up, they were like, ‘What possible excuse have you got for why you did this? Why you did such an egregious, unforgivable thing?’ And I said, ‘I have no excuse. The only thing is, I thought she was white.’ And they said nothing back,”
Roseanne then begged the network to let her make an apology tour, “And then I said, ‘Let me go on “The View” tomorrow and explain it and apologize. I made a mistake.’” However it’s clear they did not adhere to her request.
Roseanne said that, despite it still being her fault, her story is just another example of American media rushing to judge someone simply to boost their ratings and push their own narratives, saying, “And arrogance and ignorance. All of the press of the United States, and the world and how they interpreted my tweet without any knowledge of the fact that I was sending it to a journalist in Iran about what was happening to the people in Iran. We were under such terrible censorship, and it’s just terrible and frightening.”
As Roseanne Barr continues to plot her comeback, her former TV family from the titular show Roseanne are continuing their own existence without her in the 4th season of their spinoff The Conners. Do you think Roseanne will eventually beat Hollywoke or is she too far gone at this point?
