Roseanne Reboot Tackles Dan"s Death, Right-Wing Politics, & Gender Fluidity — And Twitter Is DIVIDED! Recap Here!

ABC's Roseanne reboot premiered Tuesday night, and boy, are the people divided! While the Conners' old, beaten down couch is the same, the members of America's favorite blue collar family has grown: Roseanne is now a Trump-supporting grandma! Darlene has a gender fluid kid! Dan isn't dead! Though many fell under the spell of network nostalgia, a [...] ABC's Roseanne reboot premiered Tuesday night, and boy, are the people divided! While the Conners' old, beaten down couch is the same, the members of America's favorite blue collar family has grown: Roseanne is now a Trump-supporting grandma! Darlene has a gender fluid kid! Dan isn't dead! Though many fell under the spell of network nostalgia, a number of Twitics just couldn't get past the title character's political beliefs. But defenders argued that Roseanne refreshingly showed a family on both sides of the political spectrum -- which we saw in the premiere, as Jackie (Laurie Metcalf) and Roseanne have been divided ever since the election. Related: Roseanne Cast -- Then & Now Echoing the opinions of the woman who plays her, Roseanne voted for Trump because he talked about jobs "on the real news." Jackie, on the other hand, was so freaked out by her fights with her sister, she ended up voting for Jill Stein instead of Hillary Clinton! Pushing politics aside, (which Twitter could NOT do -- but we'll get to that in a minute) a lot happened in the two-episode premiere. Becky (Lecy Goranson) is back and hoping to become a surrogate for a woman named Andrea (Sarah Chalke, AKA Becky 2). Darlene (Sara Gilbert) told everyone she came home to take care of her parents, but really she's the one who needs taking care of since girl lost her job and, as she cried to Roseanne, has "got no partner." Where you at, Johnny Galecki? The second episode tackled the original series finale, in which it was revealed that Dan (John Goodman) had died. After Dan finds Roseanne's transcript in the garage, he tells her with a hug: "This would have sold like hotcakes, if only you hadn't killed off the most interesting character. He was a gentle giant." Roseanne had notes of her own, joking that she should have added "more bondage and a wizard school" to the story. Pop culture references! Related: Former Disney Star Now Works In Trump's White House But most of the second episode focused on Darlene's son Mark, who likes dressing in girl's clothing because, as he told his grandma, "this just feels like me. I like colors that pop. It's more creative." Darlene was completely okay with Mark's outfit choices, but Dan was worried about it. During Mark's first day at school, he was made fun of so bad that he showed another kid a knife -- given to him by Dan. In the end, Darlene made her son realize that "weird is cool" and he continued to dress with colors that popped. All in all, the reboot was more progressive than not. It illustrated the reality of Trump-supporters and Trump haters living under one roof and coming together, for better or worse. Though a large population of Twitter responders could NOT get past Roseanne's new MAGA-attitude. Read some divisive reactions to the premiere (below)! If this #Roseanne show gets republicans and democrats to speak and be nice to each other, I'm here for it. — Richard S. McClain (@mcclain_r) March 28, 2018 The truth is that I loved the original #Roseanne, but she isn't simply a Trump supporter. She's continually made racist statements against Muslims and spreads #Pizzagate and #SethRich conspiracy theories. Sometimes you can't separate the real person from the character. — Nick Jack Pappas (@Pappiness) March 28, 2018 People, calm down... if you actually watched #Roseanne tonight you would have noticed that there were jokes made about Hillary supporters AND Trump supporters. It was hardly one-sided or "pro-Trump." I feel show depicted the reality of a family with different political views. — Nathan Stark (@TheStarkVoice) March 28, 2018 What the hell?? No im not a trump supporter, but i dont go up in arms when a fictional character does. #Roseanne is a tv show representing a different viewpoint. And that's ok. — Joshua Ovenshire (@TheJovenshire) March 28, 2018 I’m already looking forward to when they reboot the cancellation of #Roseanne — The Hoarse Whisperer (@HoarseWisperer) March 28, 2018 For the millionth time we don’t want an inside look at everyday Trump supporters. It doesn’t matter if it’s a #Roseanne reboot or a mainstream media profile. They let their hatred get the best of them, fell for Trump’s con and wrecked our country. There is no other story to tell. — Adam Best (@adamcbest) March 28, 2018 There are a lot of #Roseanne republicans. Voting against themselves to the point that they live in the same house, with the same damn furniture 30 years later — SilENce DoGOoD (@realBigBalls) March 28, 2018 #Roseanne handled death, divcorce, non-gender conforming children, job loss, and political division in the first two episodes. This show isn’t for your side or mine. It’s life as we know it. Welcome back, domestic goddess! — Misty Bowles (@ladybarometer) March 28, 2018 the cognitive dissonance is strong in this one #Roseanne pic.twitter.com/pv1wNzAoBW — m i t h (@ManInTheHoody) March 28, 2018 I don’t care who you are, the #Roseanne reboot is hilarious. Showing the asinine absurdity of both extreme sides of the political divide. — Emily Isler Pence (@EmilyIsler) March 28, 2018 What did YOU think of the Roseanne reboot? [Image via ABC.].....»»

Of all the sitcoms to reboot the superior tastemakers of the TV world select Roseanne to save cable. There was a plethora of other shows to pick from. Married.. with Children, “I fit every stereotype of a Jewish woman, hey don’t forget I’m Jewish every episode” The Nanny. Hell, even bringing back Frasier would have been a better idea. But settling on an erratic, still overweight after all these years Roseanne will always come with consequences, as it should. The short version: Roseanne called former Obama advisor Valerie Jarrett an ape on Twitter. She’s African American and Roseanne is behaving like the world didn’t just lose it’s shit over H & M mildly suggesting one of the black child models was a monkey. She’s also alleging that her terrible tweet was sponsored by the ingestion of Ambien. Because personal accountability for anything in 2018 is unheard of. In one of the tweets, Barr wrote, “Muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby=vj.” Barr was responding to a comment about Valerie Jarrett, a top former aide to President Obama. Barr had earlier apologized and said she was “now leaving Twitter.” But it was too late, even after Roseanne realized the repercussions starting to snowball and head in her direction. She immediately backtracked and deleted the tweets but after her response went viral Wanda Sykes quit the show, Barr was dropped from her talent agency, and ABC delivered the final bullet to the back of her head by canceling the show and giving her a few words of their own. ABC canceled its hit sitcom “Roseanne” on Tuesday after the show’s biggest star, Roseanne Barr, went on a racist Twitter rant. “Roseanne’s Twitter statement is abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values, and we have decided to cancel her show,” ABC said. How is it possible to be 65-years-old and still having learning experiences like this one. No doubt that her earlier trailer park training in life led to this poor decision. No one is saying that she has to attend cookouts or greet everyone she crosses paths with in a hijab with assalamu alaikum but don’t put your foot in your mouth doing your best impression of a prick online for no reason. Double-down if you know keeping things PC is too much of a problem. Pick a side of the fence and stay there. Roseanne can’t fully commit to anything except being fat and a nuisance on social media. The culture for a while has been “say something we don’t agree with and you’ll lose your job.” Her attempting to apologize after all of this only makes her look as stupid and wishy washy as everyone assumed.

"Roseanne" Joke About "Black & Asian Families" Criticized by "Fresh Off the Boat" & "Bob"s Burgers" Writers

Roseanne is under fire for a joke. During Tuesday’s episode (April 3), Roseanne (Roseanne Barr) and Dan (John Goodman) fall asleep in front of the TV, sleeping “from Wheel to Kimmel.” “We missed all the shows about black and Asian families,” Dan says to Roseanne. “They’re just like us. There, now you’re all caught up,” [...] Roseanne is under fire for a joke.

There, now you’re all caught up,” Roseanne responds. The joke prompted many responses from social media, including one from Master Of None actor and Bob’s Burgers writer Kelvin Yu. “Here’s why the Roseanne joke about ‘missing all the shows about Black and Asian families’ matters. At the very least, it’s reductive and belittling, as if to say those shows are nothing more than ‘Black’ and ‘Asian’ in their existence. But the real kicker is when Roseanne says: ‘They’re just like us. There, now you’re all caught up.’ Which implies that the point of any show about a minority family is simply to normalize them. That’s it. The stories, the humor, the characters … not important,” he wrote. “Then you take ALLLLLL of that and put it in the mouth of an avowed Trump supporter (not the actress — the CHARACTER of Roseanne) and you have one stinky little s–t sandwich of a joke that ABC allowed to be served in their own restaurant. It’s a big deal.” Former Fresh Off The Boat writer Kourtney Kang also responded in a guest column for The Hollywood Reporter. “In these jokes, and in the others like these, at the heart of them, whether the joke-teller means it or not, is a divisive spirit. ‘Us.’ ‘Them.’ It’s always drawing lines. Separating. Whenever these jokes have been said to me, the thing that is the most hurtful is not the insensitive dullard who said it. There’s always going to be people like that. What hurts the most is when everyone else in the room laughs,” she wrote. Here's why the Roseanne joke about "missing all the shows about Black and Asian families" matters.

Roseanne Claims She"d Be A "Better President Than Oprah" — As ABC Reportedly Scrambles To End Press Conference!

We're not sure the world is ready for President Barr. On Monday, during a press conference for the Roseanne reboot, Roseanne Barr got political as she defended her decision to support Donald Trump AND revealed that she thought she'd be a better Commander-In-Chief than Oprah Winfrey. We'll give you a minute to pick your jaws up off [...] We're not sure the world is ready for President Barr. On Monday, during a press conference for the Roseanne reboot, Roseanne Barr got political as she defended her decision to support Donald Trump AND revealed that she thought she'd be a better Commander-In-Chief than Oprah Winfrey. We'll give you a minute to pick your jaws up off of the floor... Related: Here's How The Roseanne Revival Will Incorporate Sarah Chalke On why she has chosen to stand by the controversial Cheeto-In-Chief, the 65-year-old comedienne noted: "I think it was time for us as a country to shake things up and try something different." Yeah, but did it have to be HIM??? Ugh. In regards to Oprah's empowering Golden Globes speech, which has had many calling for the media mogul to run in 2020, the funny lady relayed: "I do love Oprah. Of course I love Oprah like everybody else... Actually, I think I would be a better president than Oprah or Susan Sarandon, possibly even President Trump." EXCUSE US?? The bigoted content on Barr's Twitter account has us debating that particular point. And while Roseanne is personally a Trump supporter, she has chosen to also make her TV alter-ego a Donald fan -- for one VERY particular reason. She continued: "I said it, and I'll say again, my show has always been … I've always attempted to portray a realistic portrait of the American people and of working class people. And in fact, it was working class people who elected Trump, so I felt like that was very real and something that needed to be discussed especially about polarization in the family and actually hating people for the way they voted, which I feel like is not American. … There was a lot of thought in it." Although Barr's castmates -- including John Goodman, Sara Gilbert, Laurie Metcalf, etc. -- were seated next to her on the dais, reporters targeted most of their questions at Roseanne. Unsurprisingly, many of the queries were political in nature. After being asked if her character would question the President's xenophobia, the industry vet tried to dodge the inquiry by saying she didn't "want to get into this." However, as Roseanne is unafraid of controversy, she boldly stated: "I'm not a Trump apologist. There are a lot of things that he's said and done that I don't agree with. There's probably a lot of things Hillary Clinton has done and said that you don't agree with it. Nobody is brainwashed into agreeing with 100 percent of what anybody said. One bright thing I read today is, this is the lowest black unemployment for many, many years, so I think that's great. I do support jobs for people. I think that's a great way to fight racism is that everybody has a job." When one of the show's writers tried to chime in, the thrice married star interrupted: "Speaking of racism, I'm just going to say it." Gilbert tried to get her TV mom to walk away from the controversy bait by asking if Roseanne was "sure" she wanted to go there. The answer was clearly "yes" as Barr concluded: "A big part of why I couldn't vote for Hillary Clinton is because of Haiti... I think it's a time to close ranks. I would really like to see an end to hatriotism in this country." WHOA. Per reports, an ABC publicist scrambled to end the press conference. Roseanne better be careful, in this political climate, one serious controversy could get the reboot pulled from programming!! [Image via Adriana M. Barraza/WENN.].....»»

Roseanne Melts Down In New Video: ” I Thought The B*tch Was White!”

Roseanne Barr's sanity has officially left the building. The post Roseanne Melts Down In New Video: ” I Thought The B*tch Was White!” appeared first on WWTDD - What Would Tyler Durden Do?.   First off, the positive. Roseanne Barr’s hair in this new manic sure-to-be-infamous YouTube interview with her son looks good. Like really good. The best it’s ever looked. Of course there won’t be much left of her hair if she keeps yanking on it due to her grab bag of mental disorders and/or bath salts usage. But for now, credit where credit is due. Now, the negative. Roseanne Barr’s sanity has officially left the building. She’s fucking bonkers. And anyone who still thinks that her apparent instability is actually subversive comic genius can go right on ahead and join her in getting a $200 haircut and then all but scalping herself on screen. Barr experienced a resurgence in popularity thanks to her divisive but highly successful Roseanne reboot series on ABC. But after excusing a number of Roseanne’s controversial tweets, ABC finally gave her the boot when she compared black former senior advisor to Barack Obama, Valerie Jarrett, to an ape: muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby=vj. ABC swiftly canceled Roseanne, after which Barr apologized for the tweet and blamed it on her Ambien stupor. Now, Ambien would seem to be the least of her problems. Roseanne posted this interview with her son to her YouTube channel, and while delivering an almost uncanny impression of Debra Wilson as Whitney Houston on Mad TV, she addresses her Valerie Jarrett tweet with: I thought the bitch was white! Among other meme-worthy one-liners. This is the point in a horror movie where you realize that the person you’re with is the killer, and you can’t believe that you hung out with them so many times without realizing it. I liked Roseanne. Barr’s comments in the video aren’t even nearly as shocking as… everything else. ABC greenlit the Roseanne reboot in Spring of 2017, and you have to imagine her behavior then wasn’t wildly different than it is now. She showed up to meetings like this and they thought “Fun! And definitely not a liability!”? ABC is the family that adopts an abused pit bull and then acts shocked when it tears a baby in two. Something – judging by Roseanne’s face in this video – she seems wholly capable of doing.   Photo Credit: One of the Becky’s from the upcoming show The Conners from Getty Images / Backgrid USA / YouTube The post Roseanne Melts Down In New Video: ” I Thought The B*tch Was White!” appeared first on WWTDD - What Would Tyler Durden Do?......»»

The 65-year-old actress talked about the drug again in a later tweet, sharing: "Not giving excuses for what I did(tweeted) but I've done weird stuff while on ambien -- cracked eggs on the wall at 2am etc." Soon after, Roseanne took a page out of Donald Trump's playbook and denied blaming the drug for her racist rant: i blamed myself. not ambien, stop lying — Roseanne Barr (@therealroseanne) May 30, 2018 no, i didnt i blamed myself. stop lying.

You know the line? The one that comedians sometimes cross. Half the country wants Roseanne to go away forever and half the country wants Samantha Bee to go away forever. Now, Roseanne will always be my friend but her world came crashing down this week with a series of tweets she put out on Tuesday that were so full of racism, conspiracy theories and personal attacks they were described as abhorrent bordering on presidential ... My friend Roseanne admitted that she had been admitted to a mental institution. She has said she has multiple personalities, and unfortunately, one of them is quite a racist ... It is not a mystery to me that a person with a mental illness could be taken in by a party that has lost its mind." Wow!! And for those political junkies among us, Maher also had Senator Bernie Sanders on the show last night to talk politics and inequality (below): But seriously, how about Maher on Roseanne?! Thoughts, Perezcious readers?! Share 'em in the comments (below)!!!.....»»

Emmy Rossum Shades "Roseanne" Reboot Before Hitting Gym With Husband Sam Esmail

Emmy Rossum isn’t exactly a fan of the Roseanne reboot.

The 31-year-old Shameless star was spotted getting in a workout and grabbing brunch at Le Pain Quotidien with her husband Sam Esmail on Sunday (April 1) in Beverly Hills, Calif. Just before the weekend, Emmy took to Twitter to share her thoughts about the return of the ABC series, unhappy with Roseanne Barr’s controversial comments about President Donald Trump. “Some reviews I’ve been reading that Rosanne is attempting to bridge the gap in this country thru comedy are interesting… but I’m sorry, anyone who voted for A WALL is not trying to BRIDGE anything,” Emmy wrote, adding, “.@potus called ROSANNE to congratulate her on her ratings. This reinforces that he truly only cares about ‘ratings’ and popularity and what‘s on TV. What is it all coming to?” “That being said, I love my girl @EmmaRoseKenney 😃,” Emmy clarified. Check out Emmy‘s final Roseanne tweet below. Roseanne on Jimmy Kimmel about Trump: “let’s try to think positive”. Well, actions speak louder. The Wall. The transgender military ban. The normalization of lying. The demonizing of the press. The rise in hate crimes. The POSITIVE is the MIDTERM ELECTIONS. — Emmy Rossum (@emmyrossum) March 29, 2018.....»»

Roseanne Doing Better Than You After Backlash

Roseanne isn’t wrapped too tight as of late. Or ever. It’s no secret that being edgy and unfiltered makes for great TV. It really gets the people going. But when your late night Twitter hot takes make everyone want to leave the kitchen, blame your antics on prescription drugs. It’s guaranteed to curb at least […] The post Roseanne Doing Better Than You After Backlash appeared first on WWTDD - What Would Tyler Durden Do?. Roseanne isn’t wrapped too tight as of late. Or ever. It’s no secret that being edgy and unfiltered makes for great TV. It really gets the people going. But when your late night Twitter hot takes make everyone want to leave the kitchen, blame your antics on prescription drugs. It’s guaranteed to curb at least some of the backlash. Even though Roseanne has been labeled a racist by couch potatoes everywhere, she’s still receiving offers for other projects on television. Because for some reason some people still think the world needs more Roseanne. Just when you thought the old hag would finally let that old corpse of a career rot in peace, they go and revive it. Roseanne Barr, who was fired from her TV show after she posted a racist comment on Twitter, says that she is receiving offers for other television projects and that she may accept one. “Inside every bad thing is a good thing waiting to happen and I feel very excited because I’ve already been offered so many things and I almost already accepted one really good offer to go back on TV and I might do it,” Barr said in an interview on Rabbi Shmuley Boteach’s podcast. “But we’ll see.” I feel like Roseanne is embellishing just a tad. She may have only gotten one offer and is making it seem like she has received multiple offers to be on TV. Her only invite was probably from The View. A place where they welcome poorly aged has-been women that no one wanted to see or hear from again and then proceed to stick a camera in their face and ask their opinions. Hopefully this time if Roseanne avoids the urge to snort lines of crushed Ambien before speaking she’ll be able to hold on to this new gig without a problem.

Roseanne Reboot Spinoff Announced

  While Roseanne Barr put the “cow” in the “cash cow” that was ABC’s highly successful Roseanne reboot, the network is moving on without her with their newly-announced spinoff series The Connors.

Roseanne’s sleep aid usage led to multiple divisive political racially-charged tweets over time – the last one of which was so offensive that it prompted ABC execs to abruptly cancel the Roseanne reboot which first aired in March of 2018. But after witnessing the success of a show that catered to more conservative audiences than the majority of network programming, ABC wasn’t about to throw in the towel on the nation’s goodwill towards the central poverty and obesity stricken garbage American household, the Connors. Here’s ABC on continuing to allow us the pleasure of spending 30 minutes of our day with a working-class Illinois family living in a dump: After a sudden turn of events, the Conners are forced to face the daily struggles of life in Lanford in a way they never have before. This iconic family – Dan, Jackie, Darlene, Becky and D.J. – grapples with parenthood, dating, an unexpected pregnancy, financial pressures, aging, and in-laws in working-class America. Through it all, the fights, the coupon cutting, the hand-me-downs, the breakdowns – with love, humor and perseverance, the family prevails. If you saw Here Comes Honey Boo Boo you know what ABC is talking about. Barr apparently had to give the new series her contractual blessing, stating: 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. Now we just need for one of the remaining stars to have a racist Twitter meltdown, so we can have the reboot of the spinoff. And then the spinoff of the reboot of the spinoff. So on. So forth. The real question I have for network television is – Where’s my Alf reboot? I’m waiting.

Roseanne Spinoff "Clears Key Hurdle" As Legal Wrangling, TV Negotiations Heat Up Again At ABC

ABC hasn't given up on the proposed Roseanne reboot spinoff, even as they try to figure out a way to make it happen without disgraced star Roseanne Barr keeping some of the profits considering she helped create the original concept. But while negotiations are ongoing and legal wrangling has been underway, it increasingly looks like Barr [...] ABC hasn't given up on the proposed Roseanne reboot spinoff, even as they try to figure out a way to make it happen without disgraced star Roseanne Barr keeping some of the profits considering she helped create the original concept. But while negotiations are ongoing and legal wrangling has been underway, it increasingly looks like Barr may get paid off -- at least in part -- to walk away from the characters she helped create and allow the spinoff to continue, according to a report out this morning in THR. Related: Roseanne Has Been 'Reflecting' On Her Twitter Racism ABC execs are talking about paying the controversial comedian an as-yet-undetermined sum of "go away money" to walk away from the show with no strings tied. As you'll remember, Roseanne herself was the one who got the reboot canceled in the first place thanks to her mind-numbingly racist tweets about a former adviser to Barack Obama. But network execs apparently really want to do a spin-off without Barr that centers on Sara Gilbert's character -- and other former cast mates, including John Goodman, are reportedly "tentatively" set to come on board for that, according to the outlet. But the hold-up continues to be Roseanne's intellectual property rights in having created (or co-created) many of the characters on the show and, of course, the original Roseanne series itself -- alongside producer Matt Williams. Related: Kanye West Thinks Deadpool 2 Stole His Sound She needs to waive those rights if ABC is to proceed with the spin-off without Barr reaping a huge profit from it. And while she's reportedly "tentatively" agreed to do so, if only so the series can continue in her absence, the negotiation now is centered on exactly how much cash the network ought to pay her in "go away money" to make it worth her while and allow the show to re-re-boot. That's the "key legal hurdle" -- Roseanne being willing to waive her rights to the characters she helped create -- but it's also come up with one major problem: even with the go-away money, Roseanne STILL may be in for a big payday, indirectly benefitting again from her own racist tweets. Sigh. We'll keep you updated on what ends up happening... [Image via Nicky Nelson/WENN.].....»»
