Remember Roseanne Barr, the actress that was canceled shortly after her show on ABC, “Roseanne,” was revived by ABC in 2018? If not, the backstory is that she posted a tweet that were the sort of thing that the usual suspects called racist.
The Daily Wire, reporting on that incident, said:
In 2018, Barr was fired from the reboot of her incredibly popular ABC series “Roseanne,” following a tweet that was quickly labeled racist. The show was canceled and the series later came back to the network without her, retitled “The Conners.”
She recently spoke about that tweet — which read, “muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby” — and was aimed at former White House senior adviser to President Barack Obama, Valerie Jarrett, as The Daily Wire previously reported.
Roseanne later apologized somewhat for the tweet, blaming it on her Ambien use and saying:
“I shoulda not did it, but by God, I was really pissed that day. I did something I wouldn’t do if I hadn’t been on that Ambien. It makes you do a lot of crazy s***.” She also apologized on Twitter for her anti-Jarret tweet on Twitter, saying “I apologize to Valerie Jarrett and to all Americans. I am truly sorry for making a bad joke about her politics and her looks. I should have known better. Forgive me-my joke was in bad taste.”
But, despite those apologies, ABC went ahead and canceled the show anyway.
At the time, many, particularly those on the right, suspected that the real reason for the cancelation of the show and Roseanne herself was that she is a known Trump supporter, and so is someone that a mainstream network would want to get rid of.
Well, now Roseanne is back! Despite the left’s attempts at canceling her, she’s being brought back by Fox Nation, the Fox News-connected streaming service. Jason Klarman, president of Fox Nation, spoke about the new show, which will debut in 2023, saying:
“Roseanne is a comedy icon whose humor connects with the American audience like no other. Her ability to channel the challenges of everyday people and find the humor in it all has earned her the passionate following of millions of dedicated fans. We are thrilled to add her comedy special exclusively to the Fox Nation catalog.”
Deadline, adding more context regarding Fox Nation’s other offerings, reported that:
The special is the latest Fox Nation entertainment offering, as the streamer has tried to build on the Fox News audience beyond news programming. Other recent content includes Duck Family Treasure and the upcoming Sharon Osbourne: To Hell & Back and Yellowstone: One-Fifty with Kevin Costner.
So they tried canceling Roseanne but, thanks to Fox Nation taking a chance on her and wanting to keep her around, she’s back on TV and will be making conservative audiences laugh once again. Good for her and good for Fox Nation, it’s fun to watch cancel culture fail!
