Hollywood despises Roseanne Barr.
Barr shocked America when the revival of her 1990’s show Roseanne was a smash hit. Unfortunately, her show was short-lived because of a tweet that she sent.
But Roseanne will be furious when she hears about these jokes at her expense.
Roseanne Barr was at the top of her game a few months ago.

She produced, wrote and starred in the biggest hit show on television until ABC abruptly canceled it.
Barr tweeted that former Senior White House adviser Valerie Jarrett is if “muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby=vj.” https://www.americanpatriotdaily.com/featured/obama-just-made-this-incredible-claim-about-his-administration/
Outrage is what followed. Liberals forced ABC’s President Channing Dungey’s hand and she fired her from her own show.
Hollywood won’t live it down though.
That’s why Emmy co-hosts Colin Jost and Michael Che laid into her with offensive jokes.
During the opening monologue, Jost joked, “Roseanne was cancelled by herself, but picked up by white nationalists.”
This is a reference to conservatives who defended Barr. Apparently, Jost believes that all of Barr’s fans are “white nationalists.”
That’s when Che responded, “She had a rough year.”
Che’s response was disingenuous. It’s clear he doesn’t actually care.
And that’s when Che concluded,“I heard Roseanne is actually moving to Israel. I mean, damn. How messed up is your life when you have to go to the Middle East just to get peace of mind?”
I heard Roseanne is actually moving to Israel
Yes, Barr will move to Israel sometime in the near future.
It’s a shame.
She told People Magazine, “I don’t want to be around, because I’ll get drawn into a negative thing of defending myself or being angry for being mischaracterized and, you know, I don’t … I want to stay away from it. I want to stay in a joyous, positive, happy place that I’ve worked my way to again in my life.”
Barr was dragged through the mud because of one lousy tweet.
It was a little over the line but that’s not a reason to destroy someone’s livelihood.
She made a mistake and apologized for it.
Another reason she gave for her move was, “I want to be able to learn [and] speak Hebrew fluently, because, you know, I read very slow. I know the letters and I love the letters, but I want to speak it. And also I have quite a few teachers over the years that live there and I want to study.”
Does that sound racist to you?
That’s all liberals could say about her. https://offthewire.com/john-goodman-had-one-word-to-say-about-the-cancellation-of-roseanne/
Even Norm Macdonald acknowledged that Barr isn’t racist because he’s known her for a long time.
He said, “Roseanne was so broken up [after her show’s reboot was cancelled] that I got Louis [Louis CK] to call her, even though Roseanne was very hard on Louis before that. But she was just so broken and just crying constantly. There are very few people that have gone through what they have, losing everything in a day.”
Roseanne was so broken up
In the meantime, ABC cut Roseanne out of her show completely.
ABC killed Barr’s infamous character with an opioid overdose.
The new “reboot” is called The Conners.
They should’ve just moved on.
After all, it was Barr’s creation.
Instead, the producers realized it was a hit and wanted to cash in.
In Hollywood, it’s all about who owns the rights.
