Jimmy Kimmel on Roseanne Barr......

LOTS of replies, most are not sympathic to his tweet.

‏Verified account @jimmykimmel

What @TheRealRoseanne said is indefensible, but angrily attacking a woman who is obviously not well does no good for anyone. Please take a breath and remember that mental health issues are real. The Roseanne I know could probably use some compassion and help right now.

1. Barr made a series of tweets; the media is focusing

Only on one. She’s also made tweets over the years that were offensive.

2. Kimmel is a good guy...

Admittedly I've wondered about her mental status as well, but she's got quite a long history of this kind of crap, so it would be hard to blame everything on some poorly treated/untreated mental state or condition...

3. I like Jimmy Kimmel but he is wrong about Roseanne...

I have read some very nasty tweets she wrote along with outrageous conspiracy theories. She gets no sympathy from me.

5. I swear she made a cry for help on her show.

I've only seen two episodes of the new show, the first one, and another where she's hiding, or trying to hide, an addiction to opioids. In the last scene, she unscrewed the top of an ice pack and pulled out some painkillers she'd been hiding. The look on her face didn't seem like acting. Is she a jerk? Yeah, I think she is. But I think Jimmy Kimmel is doing the right thing by showing empathy.

7. Roseanne has always come across as a mouthy snot!

The more bizarre, the better she likes it.

I don't think "snot" is a category for mental illness you claim she has. I'd place it in poor upbringing and lack of manners.

8. Jimmy, I love you, but

some of us are really tired of a certain group being sympathy whenever they freak out, but if anyone paler than them does half the stuff, it is death.

Let me say it bluntly, do you think that if Will Smith said half this crap, he would not have been scrapped?

10. I think couching it in terms of a mental illness is probably correct

People with all their faculties can discern reality from these ridiculous conspiracy theories. Yes there are people who are just racists, which Roseanne obviously is, but she's also a racist with serious impulse control issues.

11. Yep. He's right.

She spent time in a psychiatric hospital when she was a teenager, after suffering brain damage from a car accident. She ain't right in the head. Hasn't been for a long time.

12. Why do people think Kimmel is a "good guy" ?

 

He created and co-starred in one of the most misogynistic shows in the history of modern television.

He was doing "Watters World" schtick before Jesse Watters started doing it on Fox.

The show literally had young women jumping on trampolines.

He wore black-face to do impersonations of Karl Malone (And this was in the 2000s).

It was sexist, right-wing garbage, and it ran for six years, and it was his creation and his production.

15. you defended Jerry Lewis's old ass who was always an ass

and he didn't do black face to do karl malone. he literally put on makeup to look like karl malone. not just smearing on black makup with exaggerated feautures.

and he has a record of doing a lot of good.

13. If she is mentally unwell, I hope she gets the help she needs, but with Roseann, how can you tell?

14. I like Jimmy a lot ...

But he's wrong about racist Roseanne. She floats and tweets crazy racist conspiracy theories. IS extremely popular over at 4 chan with the racists over there I hear, and that big, fat, lying racist installed in the White House loves her, and says that she's one of his peeps.

Yes, I believe that there are instances of people who can be racist and mentally ill, but not in Roseann's case IMHO. She's a racist POS. 300 plus years of dehumanization of blacks--being called or compared to monkey's, gorillas, or being compared to animals. Several years ago, Barr tweeted that Susan Rice was a man with big ape balls. Black women once AGAIN dehumanized called monkey's, gorillas, apes, men, just like Michelle Obama still is. Barr took a fucking picture as hitler, holding a cookie-sheet full of of burned gingerbread cookies near an oven. The symbolism there. Racist, racist, racist. Who the fuck didn't KNOW?

Finally, when a mass murderer's been white (usually the case), tRump and his ilk usually say that the person's mentally ill or mentally unstable. Fatso said this about that murderer in Las Vegas. But if a mass murderer or school shooter is black/brown which is rare, they're called animals and worse. When whites are addicted to opioids, you'll hear "It's a shame." and "They need help." But when a black/brown is drug addicted it's "Lock the sob or animal up, and throw away the key."

16. "ABC canceled Roseanne's show over a racist tweet. Her feed's been full of racism and conspiracy

theories for a decade."

Even when she became known for her support of Donald Trump’s candidacy, her reasoning for the support wasn’t based on personal conservatism (she previously ran for president in 2012 as part of a far-left fringe political party) but on her belief that Hillary Clinton was corrupt and left-wing candidates like Bernie Sanders spend too much time with the pope, who she told an interviewer “owns almost every dollar in the world.” And her tweets about Clinton and those associated with the former secretary of state were unhinged, to put it mildly (many have since been deleted):

Hillary "unhinged" RB.. Thanks Hillary!

5 Freaking Years Ago..

Revealed: Roseanne Barr compared another black Obama official, Susan Rice, to a 'big man with swinging ape balls' in 2013

"In March, she wrongly accused David Hogg, the Parkland school shooting survivor, of performing a Nazi salute at a gun control march."

Jarrett also said Disney CEO Bob Iger called her personally to apologize and gave her advanced notice that Barr's eponymous show was being cancelled before it was announced publicly.

'First of all, I think we have to turn it into a teaching moment. I'm fine. I'm worried about all the people out there who don't have a circle of friends and followers coming to their defense,' Jarrett said during the town hall.

'The person walking down the street minding their own business and they see someone clinging to their purse or walk across the street... or every black parent I know who has a boy who has to sit down and have a conversation, the talk as we call it,' she continued.

'Those ordinary examples of racism that happen every single day.

When did Jimmy Kimmel say RB's alleged "mental illness" start?
