Roseanne Breaks Silence on Twitter Controversy Hours After it Happens, Here’s What She Said

This situation is really bad.

Published

On Tuesday, Roseanne Barr took to Twitter to share her displeasure with former White House adviser Valerie Jarrett, posting a tweet that was so highly offensive and deemed racist that ABC ended up cancelling the second season of her show.

But that wasn’t all.

Barr’s agency dropped her as a client, her co-stars released statements condemning her behavior, and other networks where the earlier seasons of her show were in syndication have removed it from their programming block.

Later in the evening, Barr came back to Twitter and responded to some of the controversy, but unfortunately, it seems like she might have made things a little bit worse for herself in the end.

Her “joke” about Jarrett being the love child of the Muslim Brotherhood and “Planet of the Apes” set off an uproar denouncing the comedian for allegedly being racist. Barr followed with apologies to Clinton and explained that her Jarrett comments were a joke.

But after the show’s consulting producer, Wanda Sykes, announced she would not be returning to the ABC show’s second season following Barr’s comments, and the backlash continued, ABC announced Tuesday afternoon that it was cancelling the show.

“Roseanne’s Twitter statement is abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values, and we have decided to cancel her show,” ABC Entertainment president Channing Dungey said in a statement.

After the fallout on Tuesday night, Barr took to Twitter again to explain that she thought Jarrett was Saudi, not black.

Roseanne also went on to stat that what she did was “unforgivable” and “indefensible” and asked her fans not to defend her actions. The actress went on to say she had been taking Ambien and seemed to point to that playing some sort of significant factor in her actions.

While what Roseanne did is truly indefensible, horrid, and just plain awful, there’s a serious problem with the response given by ABC. The problem isn’t that they cancelled her show, which many agree was the right thing to do.

No, the problem is the inconsistency within ABC’s standards. Plenty of their other programming has folks making fun of white people, yet those shows are still on the air with no issues. HBO didn’t fire Bill Maher for using a racial slur. That hardly seems fair.

It seems that as long as you’re a liberal, you can get away with egregious behavior, simply because you believe the right things. This is unacceptable.

Here are some views from others on Twitter who agree with this sentiment:

The basic takeaway from all of this is that there is a deep need for consistency in how folks are treated based on the things they say.

ABC, as a private company, has every right to decide what kind of language and speech they want associated with their brand. Roseanne’s comment is not in line with those values and thus she paid the consequences for it.

Remember, free speech is about not having your expression limited by the government. A private company can do whatever it wishes.

Just because you can say what you want doesn’t mean there aren’t consequences.

Hail to the chief!

President Trump may no longer work from behind the Resolute Desk in the Oval Office, but that doesn’t mean he isn’t planning something big to keep the MAGA movement alive. Here’s the latest on 45, via Washington Examiner: WEST PALM BEACH, Florida — Former President Donald Trump gave nothing away about his plans for life after the White House as he dined with friends at his golf club on Friday. “We’ll do something, but not just yet,” he told the Washington Examiner as he sat at his regular table in the Grill Room of the Trump International Golf Club. An aide to the former chief executive then swooped in and swiftly, but politely, ended the interaction. CONTINUED: Trump has let it be known that he is considering another run for the White House in 2024. Reports also suggested that he was considering setting up a new party, the Patriot Party, as a vehicle to run for office. He brought a small staff with him to Florida. They are working out of the Mar-a-Lago club as they begin to ramp up operations. Here’s some random noise from anti-Trump, anti-free speech, anti-American Twitter… https://twitter.com/realDailyWire/status/1352735841366335488 https://twitter.com/cabot_phillips/status/1352734530524729344 https://twitter.com/tomselliott/status/1352723083300401152 https://twitter.com/TwitchyTeam/status/1352752362604146689 https://twitter.com/WSJ/status/1349493316468023303

AOC: I Didn’t Attend Inauguration Because I Didn’t ‘Feel Safe’ Around Republicans

UNITY!

If Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez loved history (or her country), she would’ve been in attendance at the inauguration on January 20 – however fraudulent it may be. You’d think someone like AOC would want to see history being made when Kamala Harris was sworn-in as the first female vice president – however fraudulent it may be, also. Instead, the loudmouth from the Bronx decided to push her style of “unity” by saying Republicans are dangerous. Swell. From The Daily Wire: Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) said during an interview on Thursday night that part of the reason that she did not attend President Joe Biden’s inauguration was because she does not feel safe around Republicans. “You knew that people would ask why you weren’t there,” CNN host Chris Cuomo said. “This was a good cause, from your perspective, of dealing with your constituency. But this was supposed to be a show of force, and unity, and you weren’t there. Explain it.” She blabbered, “Yeah, you know, I think we also had very real security concerns as well, as you mentioned earlier. We still don’t yet feel safe around other Members of Congress and…” VIDEO: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kfnj-mjqJf8&feature=emb_title
