Welcome to the weirdest timeline ladies and gentlemen. Roseanne Barr has gone from an apology to everyone who worked on her lauded ABC sitcom for her “stupid” tweet that cost them their jobs, to attacking any of them who dared to denounce/despair over that tweet comparing Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett to an ape.
Initially, Rosanne tweeted “Don’t feel sorry for me, guys!!. I just want to apologize to the hundreds of people and wonderful writers” (which she qualified with an “all liberal” in parenthesis) and talented actors who lost their jobs on my show due to my stupid tweet.”
But, in a renewed Twitter storm, Barr first lashed out at Michael Fishman, who played D.J. Connor on the original series and in the revival. Barr also went after Sara Gilbert, who plays her daughter in the series, and who is credited with having put together the the revival.
Check out the tweets below:
Do you ever just think to yourself… how is this even real life? In all seriousness, this is not a surprising move coming from the woman who has a history with racial controversy. It’ll be interesting to see how fans of the series and its revival continue to react to Roseanne’s adhorrent behaviour.
