When asked about the moment she found out her show was canceled, Roseanne Barr said it occurred in 2018 after she tweeted comparing President Obama’s black adviser Valerie Jarrett to a creature from Planet of the Apes.
Barr, 70, is returning to the spotlight on Monday with a new program, a comedy special on Fox Nation named Roseanne Barr: Stop It! The seasoned comedian says she was “pissed” when she heard the news, but she won’t “let the a**holes triumph.”
Twenty minutes later, I saw on CNN that they’d canceled my program. And addition, they took the life of my – my Roseanne. She says, “They murdered her. I believe they thought they shut me up,’ Barr says when the audience boos. But here’s the catch:
Barr said she didn’t mind too much at first since she “couldn’t stay in those writing rooms with them individuals one more second.” She said they “disrespected their audience” by canceling the long-running program she had hosted. The comedian from Utah had said that the alleged incident has been exaggerated.
According to Barr, she might have turned the incident into “a learning opportunity” by inviting Jarrett to her program. She might have made an appearance, Barr added. I’ve always wanted to do it, so it’s a shame I didn’t have a chance to accomplish it: I could have had 15 times the ratings, learned something on behalf of, and demonstrated something to America.
To bring people together and teach them about one another, right? When we realize our errors. “For the love of God, let’s try to work together,” Barr said. She was left feeling bitter over the lost chance. Nonetheless, they were sure they did not want to do this. It irritated me.
Even though I was thinking, “why would you want to do that after what they did?” I returned. But I returned because something was wrong with me. “There’s simply something in me,” I said. I can’t give the bulls**t artists the victory. ‘I’m not, and that’s not something I’m willing to do.
In an interview with the Los Angeles Times, she lashed out at the entertainment industry’s culture, saying she was canceled and driven out of the profession while others were welcomed back in. Her new special coincides with this interview. Before appearing in the popular smash show Roseanne, Barr found fame as a stand-up comedian.
Barr pokes fun at people’s fixation with pronouns, gender, and generational differences in a clip from her upcoming comedy show. These individuals are ignorant of the world around them and have always been isolated from the rest of society.
She said that questioning had no bearing on reality. “Mom, I don’t know what I am. I want to know, “What am I? Your gender is, get work,’ she kidded. And that, my friend, is your gender. Barr, wearing jeans and a denim shirt, stopped for the audience’s applause before continuing.
I mean, what do they even think? So, you want to know what a lady is? And they claim not to be aware of this? That’s the question everyone keeps asking. Simply put, who is a woman? Let me define a lady for you. I am a lady. Okay, so that’s what a lady is, right? A woman’s role in society is to pick up the pieces after everyone else. “That’s a lady,” she defined.
“A woman is someone whose boobs droop to her knees because she gave birth to five entitled brats who will never know what it’s like to work for anything in their lives.” “Kiss me a**,” she said, defining her pronouns.
Barr, in an interview with the Los Angeles Times, raged against the cancellation culture and said the entertainment industry had two standards for cancellation. She said that “they didn’t do it to anybody else in Hollywood,” despite the constant references to comedians Dave Chappelle and Louis C.K.
Louis C.K. may have lost everything, but at least he did something wrong. Also, Netflix acted as a shield for Dave Chappelle. “I’m the only one whose life’s work was taken by individuals I thought loved me,” she said. The room became silent, and I had no one to defend me publicly in Hollywood.
Barr said that her support for President Trump was to blame for the negative response to her tweet from May 2018. Almost immediately after the tweet, she was let go from her program
“That was a witch-burning,” she told the Los Angeles Times. “They wouldn’t let me say I’m sorry.” My Goodness, they had such a deep-seated hatred for me. It had never occurred to me that they would dislike me that much. “I am hated because I am talented and have an opinion. Despite Roseanne’s success, the network would prefer not to have the number one program.
To quote the character: “When they killed off my character, it was a message to me — knowing that I’m mentally sick or have mental health difficulties — that they did want me to commit suicide.”
