Roseanne Barr is now publicly saying she thinks Michelle Obama was the one who got her axed from her own show, ‘Rosanne’.
Barr initially took responsibility for the remark, which she has alternately blamed on using Ambien and supporting President Donald Trump, but now she believes the former first lady is behind her getting the reboot boot.
“She said, ‘This tweet is unforgivable.’ That’s what I was told and I tend to believe it because the woman who fired me is now working with the Obamas at Netflix,” Barr fumed to The Sunday Times (via The Sun). Barr appeared to be referring to Channing Dungey, the former ABC Entertainment president responsible for canceling “Roseanne”. Netflix hired her late last year to work on original programming, including content from the Obamas’ Higher Ground Productions.https://www.foxnews.com/entertainment/roseanne-barr-says-michelle-obama-got-her-fired-for-racist-tweet
Reaction has been mixed:
“I believe it 100%! ABC called Jarrett who lives with the Obama’s to apologize.”
Others are not as open to Roseanne’s claim:
“Michelle don’t care your dumbass ass”
“Out Of Date Butch !”
It wouldn’t be progressive outrage without death fantasies:
“the world will be better off when you are 6 feet under”
“This piece of excrement needs to drop dead”
“you stuckup prejudice c*nt.”
