Roseanne Barr refuses to let cancel culture slow her down, and she made an appearance on Tucker Carlson’s long-form interview show “Tucker Carlson Today” to prove it. Barr spoke about how she ended up in the woke crosshairs and how she overcame it.
Barr’s comeback from her ABC hit show’s cancellation is complete now that she can boast of a brand-new stand-up comedy show airing on Fox designed to give her the space and freedom to be funny – and if needed – offensive. A documentary of Barr will also be released.
Barr first spoke about her she was relegated to the corners of society for tweeting in 2018 tweet that a member of Barack Obama’s administration looked like a cross between a member of the “muslim brotherhood and planet of the apes.”
It’s admittedly not a good look, but her firing and attempted cancellation smacks only of hypocrisy, hierarchy, and double standards. Anti-white racism is the cause du jour in Hollywood; suddenly racism is evil when it threatens the power structure?
Barr was never given a chance to apologize. Instead, she was immediately fired and buried.
Barr admitted she went through dark times following the cancelation of her hit primetime show and of her career. She has since gone on to call it out for what it was: A “witch-burning.
“Oh, my God, they just hated me so badly,” Barr said in an interview with the Los Angeles Times. “I had never known that they hated me like that. They hate me because I have talent, because I have an opinion. Even though Roseanne became their No. 1 show, they’d rather not have a No. 1 show.”
Barr later attempted to clarify her comment by suggesting there was no alleged racism anyways, “I told them I thought [Jarrett] was white. I said I would go on my show and explain it. They wouldn’t let me. They decided I was a liar in my apology.”
“I can’t believe what they did, with all the pain that I went through to bring the show back. And it didn’t faze them to murder my character, either,” Barr said of her former castmates and Hollywood network. “They s— on my contribution to television and the show itself. But I forgive everybody. I started thinking that God took me out of there to save me. And once I started thinking that way, I was, like, a lot better off.”
Now, Barr is back and was given one of the largest audiences in American television to set the record straight. She appeared on Tucker Carlson’s show and explained what really happened.
“Any deviation from their fascist boot in your face makes you a racist,” she said to the Fox News host. In this case, Barr criticized an Obama official, something you just can’t do.
“The first five people that called me a racist and said, ‘How could you do this?’ you know, they were African-American, and Sara Gilbert [Barr’s costar] is sitting there next to me, and she goes, ‘Don’t answer them. Let it go. Just let it go.’ “I’m like, ‘Five in a row? I’m hardly going to let it go.’ That was always their thing, was just to say, ‘Just ignore them. Let them call you a racist….'”
“Don’t defend yourself?” Carlson asked.
“I said, ‘No, I’m not going to do it your way even though you are so proper, and you just love it. I love your proper privilege, but I’m going to step out and be a loudmouthed b–ch and open my mouth. Sorry,” she said to Carlson.
Barr then addressed everyone who tried to ruin her life and career.
“Eff you all,” she said, speaking to people whom she thought were her friends and cared for her. “I fell in bed and people were calling me and I couldn’t even speak,” she said. “I mean, I had a nervous breakdown. I couldn’t walk or speak or think…”
Barr was then asked by Carlson to describe what she has learned from this experience.
“The greatest thing that I learned is my faith that has always kept me strong… there’s nothing that’s ever gonna shake it. Thank heaven,” she said.
