Responding to Samantha Bees’ angry apology Wednesday night for her disgusting and controversial remarks regarding First Daughter Ivanka Trump, Roseanne Barr once again returned to Twitter, only this time not to grovel, but to reclaim her rightful place as a talented and much beloved “A-List” comedian, who mistakenly made a vile remark regarding former Presidential adviser Valerie Jarrett.
However unlike Bee, Barr has paid an extremely steep price, losing her highly acclaimed sitcom show “Roseanne” on ABC, which generated the highest rating in history for a rebooted TV sitcom.
While “C-List” comedian Bee was being celebrated for making a similar vile remark by big-name celebrities, against a backdrop of declining ratings and a mass exit of over a dozen sponsors dropping out of her late-night “Full Frontal” show on TBS, which continues to support her
Barr’s tweets were mostly in response to the thousands of loyal fans fed-up with the blatant “double-standards” and the “hypocrisy” exhibited by the left.
The award-winning comedian is thinking about fighting the show’s cancellation posting; ‘I’m not a racist, I never was & I never will be. One stupid joke in a lifetime of fighting 4 civil rights 4 all minorities, against networks, studios, at the expense of my nervous system/family/wealth will NEVER b taken from me.”
Barr continued, “You guys make me feel like fighting back. I will examine all of my options carefully and get back to U.”
Moreover, the remarkable contrast between Bee and Barr was never more evident than within their respective apologies.
Barr’s apology after she realized she had stepped in it; “Guys I did something unforgivable so do not defend me. It was 2 in the morning and I was Ambien tweeting-it was memorial day too-i went 2 far & do not want it defended-it was egregious Indefensible,”
Now contrast that with Bees’ apology, “You know a lot of people were offended and angry that I used an epithet to describe the President’s daughter and advisor last week. It is a word I have used on the show many times, hoping to reclaim it, this time I used it as an insult. I crossed the line. I regret it and I do apologize for that.”
Adding, “I want this show to be challenging and I want it to be honest, I never intended it to hurt anyone, except Ted Cruz. Many men were also offended by my use of the word… I do not care about that. I hate that this distracted from more important issues.”
Quite a contrast indeed and many of Barr’s fans are finally speaking out. Among the tweets that Barr reposted to her account was one from the Twitter user @poconomtn who wrote: “I’m confused. Roseanne’s show was a family show. Her actions place outside of her show. Joy Behar & Jimmy Kimmel do it ON their shows which reflects badly on your network yet you keep them. Don’t pretend this isn’t political.”
Another twitter follower posted; “Normal Americans are watching in absolute shock as leftist maniacs indulge in yet another political sacrifice. It won’t end well for you guys.”
And still another; “In the past 24 hours, Roseanne has attacked the legitimacy of the media, shared Tommy Robinson’s story, and mentioned George Soros and now she is being slandered as an evil racist (#1 top trending). This is an obvious smear job for challenging the authority of the media.”
Kyle Morris another Twitter user asked perhaps the most profound question directed at ABC, the network that fired Barr, asking; “Why ABC didn’t terminate Joy Behar’s contract when she said people who think they can talk to Jesus are “mentally ill”?
No doubt Barr’s outspoken support of President Trump, along with her unconventional hit show poking fun at the progressive establishment is certainly the reason why a majority of Barr’s fans believe that was the real reason for the shows cancellation. The timely remark concerning Jarrett simply helped ABC hide behind it, and claim the network couldn’t tolerate such hateful speech…however “we know better.”
