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 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.].....»»

Kanye West Offers Up More "Zig Zag Thoughts" — Talks Love For Both Donald Trump AND Hillary Clinton, The Sunken Place, & So Much More!

Kanye West has LOTS of opinions and enjoys sharing them with the world. Ever since returning to Twitter last week, Yeezy has been spewing off thoughts regarding a variety of subjects.

Ever since returning to Twitter last week, Yeezy has been spewing off thoughts regarding a variety of subjects. Thus far, he's once again compared himself to greats -- including Steve Jobs, Walt Disney Disney, Henry Ford, etc.-- and called out those who've questioned his mental health. Related: Kris Slams Reports She Fought With Kanye! Well, Ye has since popped back on Twitter, and appears to be tweeting out his stream of consciousness. In his latest rant, West has discussed Get Out's the Sunken Place (a "place" of no control many online critics think he's now in), teased new music, and explained his love for BOTH Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump! For more from Kanye's mind, be sure to proceed (below)... do this look like the sunken place 😂 pic.twitter.com/ixzKnaaaSy — KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) April 25, 2018 more tweets from the sunken place 😂 pic.twitter.com/nJQdQ2aVKn — KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) April 25, 2018 I'm used to the heat of independent thoughts — KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) April 25, 2018 I leave my emojis bart Simpson color — KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) April 25, 2018 Trav we gotta drop the track with me you and Uzi this week bro. Let's gooooooooooooooooooooooooo🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥 — KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) April 25, 2018 I'm turn the Grammys into the Yammys — KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) April 25, 2018 Rocky we gotta release our songs ASAP — KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) April 25, 2018 Do ITTTT! But Kanye didn't stop there, as he continued: Free thinkers don't fear retaliation for your thoughts. The traditional thinkers are only using thoughts and words but they are in a mental prison. You are free. You've already won. Feel energized. Move in love not fear. Be afraid of nothing. — KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) April 25, 2018 You don't have to agree with trump but the mob can't make me not love him. We are both dragon energy. He is my brother. I love everyone. I don't agree with everything anyone does. That's what makes us individuals. And we have the right to independent thought. — KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) April 25, 2018 If your friend jumps off the bridge you don't have to do the same. Ye being Ye is a fight for you to be you. For people In my life the idea of Trump is pretty much a 50 50 split but I don't tell a Hillary supporter not to support Hillary I love Hillary too. — KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) April 25, 2018 I love when people have their own ideas. You don't have to be allowed anymore. Just be. Love who you want to love. That's free thought. I'm not even political. I'm not a democrat or a republican — KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) April 25, 2018 And also I'm all the way out the sunken place. And I'm not scared anymore. I'm not scared of the media. I'm not scared of the past and I'm optimistic about the future. This tweet is in love not fear. — KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) April 25, 2018 with love I am invincible. Truth is subjective but love is the most powerful force in the world and the world needs to express more of it. — KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) April 25, 2018 Hmmm, inneresting point. And it seems that North West has encouraged her Famous poppa to say, "I love you" more: When my daughter acts out she actually says afterwards I just want to hear you say I love you more. — KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) April 25, 2018 no race religion region or political party can argue with the power of love — KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) April 25, 2018 Powerful stuff. However, Kanye then moved on to more "zig zag thoughts": fear takes strategy Unlearn linear thinking Hit you with these zig zag thoughts — KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) April 25, 2018 decentralize — KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) April 25, 2018 burn that excel spread sheet 🔥😂 — KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) April 25, 2018 Yeezy VC invests in and develops food clothing shelter and communications — KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) April 25, 2018 Clearly baffled by his social media antics, West's wife Kim Kardashian called to check in on him. The 40-year-old hitmaker relayed: my wife just called me and she wanted me to make this clear to everyone. I don't agree with everything Trump does. I don't agree 100% with anyone but myself. — KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) April 25, 2018 HIGHlarious! He concluded his wackiest rant with: Kids See Ghost short film will be shot by Dexter Navy — KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) April 25, 2018 I’m nice at ping pong — KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) April 25, 2018 Alrightyyyyyy then. Fingers crossed Kanye blesses us with more tweets later today! Be sure to stay tuned!! [Image via WENN.].....»»

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.].....»»

Roseanne Blames Ambien For Her Racist Tweet — And Twitter Rightfully DRAGS HER!

Didn't she quit social media?? 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 [...] Didn't she quit social media?? 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. Yes, I have had odd ambien experiences on tweeting late at night-like many other ppl do. I BLAME MYSELF OK? it's just an explanation not an excuse, Ok, bully? — Roseanne Barr (@therealroseanne) May 30, 2018 HMMMMOKAY. Then why mention in the first place, Ro?? The former sitcom star also shared two direct apologies at Jarrett as well as a few messages to her fans: @ValerieJarrett I want to apologize to you. I am very sorry to have hurt you. I hope you can accept this sincere apology! — Roseanne Barr (@therealroseanne) May 30, 2018 @ValerieJarrett i don't know if u saw it, but I wanted2 apologize to u 4 hurting and upsetting u with an insensitive & tasteless tweet. I am truly sorry-my whole life has been about fighting racism. I made a terrible mistake wh caused hundreds of ppl 2 lose their jobs. so sorry! — Roseanne Barr (@therealroseanne) May 30, 2018 "Don't feel sorry for me, guys!!-I just want to apologize to the hundreds of people, and wonderful writers (all liberal) and talented actors who lost their jobs on my show due to my stupid tweet." hey guys, don't defend me, it's sweet of you 2 try, but...losing my show is 0 compared 2 being labelled a racist over one tweet-that I regret even more. — Roseanne Barr (@therealroseanne) May 30, 2018 Ambien became a top trending Twitter topic following Roseanne's mention, and users of the social media site dragged her accordingly. For the best medicinal reactions, ch-ch-check out (below)! Who among us hasn’t taken Ambien, sleepwalked down to the fridge, and posted dozens of racist tweets over several years — Jess Dweck (@TheDweck) May 30, 2018 When you are awake at 4:30 in the morning for no GD reason and you check Twitter to find that (on the day you need her most) your good pal Ambien is being dragged through the mud pic.twitter.com/Uw7OB4ZYy1 — Anna Kendrick (@AnnaKendrick47) May 30, 2018 Roseanne on Ambien - Firing off racist insults on twitter while wearing a Nazi uniform. Me on Ambien - Continuously calling my dog Gladys (her name is Beans), while googling things like, "do penguins have knees?" 🤷🏼‍♂️ — UnsilentMajority 🌹 (@The_UnSilent_) May 30, 2018 I’ve never heard of Ambien turning someone into a hateful white trash racist, but maybe they should look into it because there has been a recent spike in this type of behavior. — Steve Redmond (@sjredmond) May 30, 2018 guys i went and rewatched the ambien commercial and whoa pic.twitter.com/4AZ69Mdanf — Shoshana Weissmann, Sloth Committee Chair (@senatorshoshana) May 30, 2018 Who amongst us doesn’t take an Ambien, put on their best khaki pants, then accidentally swing by the nearest Home Depot, pick up a tiki torch, and march with some white nationalists? — laney (@misslaneym) May 30, 2018 Miz Barr be on Joe Rogan's podcast Friday -- will you tune in to hear what else she has to say?

On Wednesday, the Famous rapper took to Twitter to address the many rumors regarding his alleged mental instability. As you surely know, tongues started waggin' about Yeezy's well being after he fired his manager and lawyers. Allegedly, the A-lister has been distancing himself from those who helped him after his 2016 breakdown. Related: Kris Slams Reports She Fought With Kanye! West also sparked concern after he participated in some bizarre social media antics and interviews, where he apparently vocalized pro-Donald Trump sentiments. That being said, 'Ye wants everyone to know that he's doing just fine and is busy building an empire. In fact, Kanye has no problem calling out those who've suggested otherwise! Amid his most recent rant online, the 40-year-old father of three called out People, TMZ, Shade Room, and countless others for posts about his mental stability! He also revealed that he "no longer" has a manager, as he "can't be managed." Oh snap! For an unfiltered Kanye rant, be sure to proceed (below)... I no longer have a manager.

Roseanne Watching It All Fall Apart After Racist Tweet

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 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?......»»

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 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.].....»»

John Legend Implores Kanye West To Reconsider His Pro-Trump Stance — See The Texts HERE!

Not even Kanye West's equally talented peers can sway his stance on Donald Trump.

In a lengthy note to West, Chrissy Teigen's husband reminded Kanye that he's "way too powerful and [...] Not even Kanye West's equally talented peers can sway his stance on Donald Trump. On Thursday, Yeezy took to Twitter to share a text John Legend sent him, asking the Famous rapper to reconsider his support of the President. In a lengthy note to West, Chrissy Teigen's husband reminded Kanye that he's "way too powerful and influential to endorse who [Trump] is and what he stands for." Photos: All Of Kanye's Tweets That Make You Think TBH, we've never loved the All of Me singer more. Sadly, Yeezus couldn't be persuaded by the 39-year-old's impassioned plea. In fact, Kim Kardashian West's man accused John of using West's fans as a "tactic" to "manipulate [his] free thought." Geez. Be sure to take a closer look at their convo for yourself (below)! pic.twitter.com/L9a7OeywJ6 — KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) April 26, 2018 While Kanye has every right to have his own opinion, we feel his ego is blinding him from seeing Trump for the bigot he is. West has since doubled down on his pro-Trump sentiments: I tweeted the John text to show that there are people around me that disagree with me and voice their opinion. I respect everyone's opinion but I stand my ground. — KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) April 26, 2018 if you feel something don't let peer pressure manipulate you — KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) April 26, 2018 Thankfully, the Love Me Now artist didn't take Kanye's response too personally, as he's since joked about West posting their text conversation (below). pic.twitter.com/zxcloMEj9I — KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) April 26, 2018 Too funny. Although Kanye's rant didn't stop there, as he continued: I really appreciate this dialogue with John Legend because I'm actually very empathetic. Im still the kid from the telethon. I feel when people think of MAGA they don't think of empathy. — KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) April 26, 2018 This is year one. We can't ad empathy to MAGA by hating. We can only ad empathy with love and time and truly hearing all sides — KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) April 26, 2018 John Legend new single on line now 😂 — KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) April 26, 2018 my friend said he texted all his friends this morning and said I love you — KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) April 26, 2018 the concept of loving people has a stigma — KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) April 26, 2018 try telling people you love them it actually feels weird at first. We're really good at hating each other. We have to get good at loving each other. — KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) April 26, 2018 Huh. While John had lighthearted banter with Kanye, there's nothing about Trump's presidency that he finds amusing. On the racial tension that plagues the U.S., Legend noted on Wednesday evening: I imagine there's some comfort in imagining a future without racism and projecting that onto the present. Thinking if we just deny the truth, it doesn't exist. If history is erased, we don't have to deal with its consequences. However... — John Legend (@johnlegend) April 25, 2018 Far too many people don't have the luxury of closing their eyes and ears. They feel it in their lives and can't act like what they see and know doesn't exist. — John Legend (@johnlegend) April 25, 2018 They know their family was destroyed by deportation or incarceration. They know their loved one was denied safe harbor because of their religion. They know their son or daughter was shot because their skin color evoked fear — John Legend (@johnlegend) April 25, 2018 They see the statistics about black applications for real estate or loans or employment being turned away because their name was Jamal and not James — John Legend (@johnlegend) April 25, 2018 I love that great, brilliant artists have the power to imagine a better future. But artists can't be blind to the truth. — John Legend (@johnlegend) April 25, 2018 And to make it perfectly clear that he's referencing the Trump administration, the soon to be father of two added: The defining trait of Trump's campaign and political profile was his embrace of white supremacy. He made it clear every time he spoke. Some serious cognitive dissonance to ignore that for the other x% you might find appealing. I guess I agree with >1% of anyone's thoughts though — John Legend (@johnlegend) April 25, 2018 Hear! Hear! What do YOU think?? Should Kanye listen to John?? SOUND OFF in the comments (below)!

"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. 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 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. 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. 1/9 — Kelvin Yu (@InternetKelvin) April 5, 2018.....»»
