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):

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?
