Roseanne Barr Re-Launches Career After ‘Racist’ Tweet
Long-time comedian Roseanne Barr is back to work following her excommunication from Hollywood, and her material is as gut-bursting as ever.
Barr has been silent since her tweet targeting former Obama administration official Valerie Jarrett led many critics to allege her of being a racist. Her namesake show Roseanne, a revival of the classic 90s sitcom of the same name, was cancelled in the wake of the incident — something the comedian said was based purely on her support for President Donald Trump.
One of the new uploads now available on her YouTube channel concedes the tweet in question was out of bounds. However, the comedian maintains the entertainment industry wildly overreacted, and suggests her program’s cancellation was entirely political.
“My show was canceled before even one advertiser pulled out, and I was labeled a racist,” Barr said in a statement. “Why, you ask? Well, the answer is simple: Because I voted for Donald Trump, and that is not allowed in Hollywood.”
Since her statement was uploaded, Barr also released the comical sketch below — which shows the comedian explaining what happened in a far less formal way. Check it out below!
