Fans Of The Old Roseanne Need To Read This…

We've seen a lot of think pieces about Roseanne being canceled. But this is more of a feel piece. Related: Roseanne Cancels Interview, Goes 'Radio Silent' After teasing earlier in the week he had something to say about her and Donald Trump, Roseanne's old friend Michael Moore posted to his Facebook a thoughtful, empathetic take. See what he says [...] We've seen a lot of think pieces about Roseanne being canceled. But this is more of a feel piece. Related: Roseanne Cancels Interview, Goes 'Radio Silent' After teasing earlier in the week he had something to say about her and Donald Trump, Roseanne's old friend Michael Moore posted to his Facebook a thoughtful, empathetic take. See what he says about her past and present issues -- and how Trump is taking advantage of a lot more people than just her (below): I have known Roseanne Barr for over 25 years. I've known her as Roseanne Barr, Roseanne Arnold, just "Roseanne", then back to Roseanne Barr. I've spent time in her home, criss-crossed the country with her to help remove George W. Bush from the White House, appeared on her shows, been there for her when she needed something, and connected her with one of my producers who did an insightful, one-of-a-kind documentary into the genius and the tragedy that is Roseanne Barr. On Tuesday Roseanne posted hateful, slanderous tweets directed at four people: George Soros, Valerie Jarrett, Chelsea Clinton and me. A few hours later, she was fired by ABC. For the past few years, Roseanne has been posting the craziest stuff on Twitter, like claiming Hillary was part of a child sex abuse ring being run out of a DC pizza place. She's claimed that the Clintons have murdered people. And anyone who criticizes Benjamin Netanyahu is a "nazi." Roseanne seems to be suffering from some sort of madness. It's more than just saying she's a racist. She operates in the same sewer of lies, conspiracy theories and bigotry that's been rising in America for years and that has now succeeded in electing our current president. Totally nuts. Here's who's not crazy: Donald J. Trump. Trump, though he shows all the signs of being absolutely bonkers, is not insane. He's the real deal. His racism and hate is real, it's well thought-out, he's the true master of manipulation, a brilliant performance artist, and an evil genius. He outsmarted a nation of liberals and Democrats and won the White House by losing the actual vote of the people. He neutered and then destroyed the Grand Old Republican Party. He knows exactly what he is doing. Roseanne, on the other hand, is a person who long ago broke through and brought an authentic voice of working women and men to television via one of the greatest TV series of all time. It was groundbreaking because the TV industry had historically either ignored, ridiculed or patronized those of us who grew up in the working class. Roseanne changed that. But she is also a damaged soul. Most people don't know that she has suffered her entire life from a massive head injury she received during a serious car accident when she was a child. Her brain injuries were immense and she spent months in the hospital struggling to recover. I also have no idea what it was like to grow up, as she did, as a Jewish girl in Salt Lake City. Not a tolerant state, to be sure. She told me how her parents, who owned an apartment building, were asked by the U.S. government after World War II if they would be willing to house Holocaust survivors who had come to the U.S. as refugees. Her parents took dozens in, and Roseanne's childhood was spent with these survivors as her "family." "The stories they told me," she said, "were filled with unimaginable horror. I've always wondered what effect that had on me as a little girl." Now, sadly, for the past few years, Roseanne has been in a downward spiral, ranting like crazy on Twitter, spreading conspiracy theories, attacking the people she used to love, supporting Trump, and being just an outright hateful and racist person. It has been a difficult decline to witness. She has repeatedly attacked me, and on Tuesday, after calling George Soros a "Nazi" (he's a Jew and a Holocaust survivor), Valerie Jarrett an offspring "of the Muslim Brotherhood and Planet of the Apes," and saying that Chelsea was "married to" a Nazi relative of George Soros, she then retweeted a disgusting new word for me because I have spoken out against the Netanyahu government and its killing of Palestinians -- "#JewHater". Nonstop insanity and sickness. I guess there might be 20 million Americans (out of 320 million) who probably agree with her. She has thrown down with the lowest of the low, and who knows if she'll ever recover from this descent into her own personal hell. To close, I want to say just how great the new Roseanne show was. It was funny but brutal to watch because it showed how our system of greed has hurt millions of families like the Connors of Illinois. On the final episode last week, Roseanne was addicted to opioids because she couldn't afford the knee surgery she needed, so she suffered along in agonizing pain. Dan, her husband, in order to raise money for her surgery, decided to take a non-union job -- and Roseanne berates him for doing so and letting his union brothers and sisters down. There are a couple quick knocks on Trump, making it clear that the real Roseanne was not writing or running this show. For the past 9 weeks, the new Roseanne show has shined a powerful and necessary light on what it means to be working class in 2018. Her blended family on this new series was white and black and LGBTQ, and her generous neighbors next door were Muslims who forced her to confront her own bigotry. If only her art could have helped her in her real life. (Also, let me say this: There's no reason the show has to go just because she's gone. Over the years, TV has found ways to bring Bobby Ewing back from the dead on "Dallas", forced us to accept the two Darrins on "Bewitched", and found ways for hit shows to survive when their stars bolted after a year or two [David Caruso on "NYPD Blue", Pernell Roberts on "Bonanza"]. The smart people who were writing this Roseanne series can surely find a way to let the non-bigoted portion of the America's working class [which I can tell you is the VAST majority] have their voice heard on network television. Why should it be silenced by one lost soul?) Wow. What do YOU think of this take? [Image via ABC.].....»»

Roseanne Barr was back on Twitter Tuesday evening, in an effort to defend her racially charged Valerie Jarrett tweet and weigh in on her ABC show's cancellation. The disgraced comedienne began her social fury by retweeting alt-right figure Jack Posobiec, Thomas Wictor, and way too many supportive messages from her followers. She thanked fans by mostly replying to others' messages. Related: Here's How Valerie Jarrett Feels About Roseanne She also tweeted (and deleted) that the sleep aid Ambien was seemingly responsible for her foul behavior: "guys I did something unforgiveable so do not defend me. It was 2 in the morning and I was ambien tweeting -- it was memorial day too -- i went 2 far & do not want it defended -- it was egregious Indefensible. I made a mistake I wish I hadn't but...don't defend it please." 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.

ABC execs are inches away from greenlighting a second reboot of Roseanne after connecting with Tom Werner, who produced the sitcom through his company Carsey-Werner, over the weekend to kick negotiations into high gear. Sources familiar with the situation told TMZ that Werner spoke with top network suits to move forward with a Roseanne spinoff without its leading lady and reluctant Ambien spokesperson, Roseanne Barr. Video: Sara Gilbert Stands Behind Roseanne's Cancellation! Insiders say the network is working out last-minute details, which mostly revolve around Roseanne. While the network had a solid cause to fire the comedian as both the star and executive producer, it might be contractually obligated to pay her a fee or back end for her involvement in creating the show. Of course, ABC could always argue it's a different show entirely. The potential spinoff has been speculated to focus on Sara Gilbert's character, Darlene. (Or, even better, Laurie Metcalf's Jackie!!!) Whatever direction the Roseanne-less Roseanne takes, ABC seems bent on trying to salvage the jobs of those affected by its decision to cancel the show. Insiders say an announcement could come as early as this week! Do YOU think ABC can make a brand new train out of this train wreck? [Image via ABC.].....»»

Hell, even bringing back Frasier would have […] The post Roseanne Watching It All Fall Apart After Racist Tweet appeared first on WWTDD - What Would Tyler Durden Do?. 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 Barr Reveals She "Begged" ABC Not To Cancel Her Show & Offers "Forgiveness" To Former Costars!

The disgraced sitcom star fired off more tweets Thursday, lamenting about her career at ABC going down the toilet and how she "begged" the network not to cancel her reboot over one silly "mistake." Related: John Goodman Doesn't Want To Know ANYTHING About This Drama! In between posting self-pitying apology tweets and retweeting right-leaning supporters on how unfair her show's cancellation was, Ro-Ro revealed she made a desperate plea to Ben Sherwood hoping that the Disney/ABC Television Group President would allow her to "make amends" for her racist tweet about Valerie Jarrett. She wrote: "I begged Ben Sherwood at ABC 2 let me apologize & make amends. I begged them not to cancel the show. I told them I was willing to do anything & asked 4 help in making things right. I'd worked doing publicity4 them 4free for weeks, traveling, thru bronchitis. I begged4 ppls jobs." But Sherwood wasn't having it. She continued: "He said: what were you thinking when you did this? I said: I thought she was white, she looks like my family! He scoffed & said: 'what u have done is egregious, and unforgivable.' I begged 4 my crews jobs. Will I ever recover from this pain? Omg." Really!? She's pretending she thought Jarrett was white this whole time? The comedian seems to be saying anything she can think of to save face. Her other tweets included more apologies to the cast and "forgiveness" for her former Roseanne costars Sara Gilbert and Michael Fishman, whom she previously accused of throwing her under the bus for condemning her tweets. She shared in another since-deleted tweet: "To michael fishman and sara gilbert: I forgive u both, love u both, just wish u could have called me personally 2 talk rather than do it in a public arena. I understand, tho. It's ok." Okay. Coming from the woman who says everything in a public arena. Related: Tom Arnold Knew Roseanne Would Destroy Herself On Twitter The most unbearable part of all this for Roseanne wasn't the show's cancellation, she said -- it was the impact of her words on actress Jayden Rey, who played Mary Connor, the daughter of DJ and his black wife Geena (Xosha Roquemore) on the show. She wrote: "I think I'll b better tomorrow. The saddest part of all is 4 Jayden Rey on the show whom I grew2 love so much & am so ashamed of myself that she would ever think I do not love her bc she is African American. It's the most gawd awful painful thing. I can't let myself cave in tho." Sounds like she regrets that tweet a lot -- but Roseanne also wanted to make sure ABC has reasons to regret cancelling her show. Aside from being a ratings powerhouse, the actress said on Wendesday that the network will never find better actors than her former costars Laurie Metcalf and John Goodman, writing: "I just wish ABC had not thrown two of the greatest actors in the world out with me-Laurie and John. I'm so sick over this-they will never have better character actors on their network." Very true! Which is why at this very moment, ABC execs are thinking of ways to get those extraordinary actors back without the one who's racist on Ambien! [Image via ABC.].....»»

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.].....»»

During the panel, Roseanne explained why her character on the show is a Donald Trump supporter. “In The Rosanne Show, I’ve always tried to have it be a true reflection of the society we live in. I feel like half the people voted for Trump and half didn’t, so it’s just realistic. 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 and especially about polarization in the family and people actually hating other people for the way they voted, which I feel is not American,” she said......»»
