Roseanne Barr’s journey following her “cancellation” from ABC’s “Roseanne” in 2018 has been filled with challenges and a sense of betrayal. Despite her success with the wildly popular remake of her sitcom, a single tweet led to her rapid downfall. Barr feels she has been unfairly targeted and ostracized by ABC because she believes her talent and opinions played a role in her dismissal. Despite criticism and losing touch with some of her former co-stars, Barr maintains a sense of forgiveness and resilience as she prepares for her television comeback. Her upcoming comedy show on Fox Nation marks a new chapter in her career and shows her determination to move forward despite past setbacks.
Roseanne Barr is still upset and feels like she’s being singled out five years after her “cancellation.”
“I did it. I finally came out the other side. But as she told The Los Angeles Times, it was a witch burning.” And it was pretty scary. Indeed, it was.”
The comedian was on top of the world in 2018 when ABC’s “Roseanne” remake was a huge success. Then Roseanne wrote a tweet that would have long-lasting effects in the middle of the night. In a tweet, she compared White House Counsel Valerie Jarrett to the movie “Planet of the Apes.” Amid heavy criticism, Roseanne stated that she was on Ambien at the time and was not thinking clearly, therefore she did not know Valerie was Black.
ABC promptly fired her, killed her character, and changed the name of “Roseanne” to “The Conners,” which continues to air today.
“Oh my God, I was so unlikable to them. She commented on ABC: “I had no idea they would despise me so much. “They despise me because I’m talented and I have opinions. “They’d rather not have the number one show, even if ‘Roseanne’ became theirs.
She claims the network didn’t give her a chance to apologize.
“The people I thought loved me stole my life’s work and I’m the only one who has lost everything.” And there was silence,” she told the Times. “There was no one in Hollywood who really defended me publicly, except for Monique, who is a brave, close, dear friend.”
Roseanne said that Louis C.K. and Dave Chappelle, two other comedians, were not treated as harshly as she was.
“While they routinely include Dave Chappelle and Louis C.K., they haven’t done this to anyone else in Hollywood. Yes, Louis C.K. lost everything, but he really committed a crime,” she noted.
Louis admitted to engaging in s*xual activity in front of work colleagues in 2017. Dave faced criticism after making transphobic jokes in a Netflix special. Since their appearance, both guys have received Grammy awards.
Roseanne lost touch with many of her former comedy co-stars during the aftermath of her ouster.
“I’m not privy to their thoughts or emotions. I’m not sure why they acted the way they did. I’m different from them. I’ve come to realize that. Even with all the suffering I’ve gone through to get the program back, I can’t.” I can’t believe what they did. Plus, it didn’t stop them from killing off my character,” she revealed.
The comic book icon claims she’s not bitter, despite her seemingly sour tone.
He declares, “I forgive all.” “I started to believe that God saved me when he took me out of there. And I felt like I was in much better shape when I started thinking like that.”
Rosanne will make her television comeback on February 13th with a brand new comedy show for Fox Nation. “Has anyone else been fired here lately?” she poses for the audience during a sneak peek special.
Roseanne Barr’s journey since her “cancellation” by ABC in 2018 has been a tumultuous one, marked by frustration, anger, and a sense of betrayal. Despite her claims that she was singled out for her talent and opinions, she admits that she felt unsupported in Hollywood during her ordeal. However, he maintains a sense of forgiveness and faith and sees his experiences as part of a larger plan. As Roseanne prepares for her television comeback, she remains indomitable and ready to take on the next chapter of her career with a mix of determination and humor.
