Roseanne Barr just made a bombshell statement about why her mega hit show was abruptly yanked by ABC saying that she believes former first lady Michelle Obama is responsible for getting her fired.
As you most likely know, her show was cancelled back in May 2018 after Barr, 66, posted a series of allegedly racist, Islamophobic tweets including one comparing former Obama’s Iranian aide Valerie Jarrett to someone from “Planet of the Apes” and the Islamic Brotherhood.
Initially Rosanne blamed the late night tweets on her taking too much medication called Ambien as well as the fact that she was a vocal supporter of our great president Donald J. Trump.
But after looking at the facts Barr has cocluded that Obama was behind the whole thing.
“She 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.
FoxNews reports that back 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.
In June 2018, Barr said in a statement that she accepted a settlement and to be removed to make way for “The Conners,” telling press, “I regret the circumstances that have caused me to be removed from ‘Roseanne.’ I agreed to the settlement in order that 200 jobs of beloved cast and crew could be saved, and I wish the best for everyone involved.”
Her tune has changed significantly this week.
“They think because they killed me it’s OK to use me, use the memory of me,” she fumed to The Times. “Still mention me. It’s still my show, but they stole it. They are going to do it to other comics. I’m just the first.”
ABC IS GARBAGE AND ARE COMPLETE LIBERAL MORONS.
The new Connors show is pure trash, not funny and is bombing in the ratings.
