Roseanne Barr Has an Explicit Message for Critics After Bill Maher Brings Up ‘Racist’ Joke That Got Her Sitcom Canceled



On Sunday, comedian Roseanne Barr hit out at critics of her 2018 joke about Valerie Jarrett that led to her hit sitcom being canceled. 

After a decades-long hiatus, “Roseanne,” the hit show starring Barr, returned to air in 2018 but was canceled just weeks later after Barr posted a tweet about Valerie Jarrett, a black woman and former senior adviser to former President Barack Obama. 

Barr tweeted that if the “muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby = vj.” 

Over the weekend, Barr appeared on “Club Random,” a podcast hosted by Bill Maher. At one point in the episode, Maher noted that the reboot of “Roseanne” made it to No. 1, but that Barr tweeted something that was “certainly” racist, prompting a response from Barr.

“It was not,” Barr shot back.

“Well, okay, well—”

“I thought the b-tch was white,” Barr said.

“I know that’s what you thought, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t racist because obviously—”

“If she looks just like the f–king picture—” Barr said before Maher cut in, saying, “You’re not going to get yourself out of this by reiterating that.”

“And everybody in power got to be made fun out. Mock, mock, mock, mock, mock, mock,” she continued. “F–k you. If you can’t take a joke, f–k you, you fascist. That’s how I feel, Bill. You know why I don’t give a f–k what color your ass is if you ain’t doing right for your own people or anybody’s people in this country where people are sleeping in the streets and it makes me f–king sick, then f–k you. I don’t give a f–k about your feelings. You are offensive to me. You better take care of people living and dying in these streets. F–k off.”

Following the rant, Barr apologized, saying, “I’m so sorry, but it just came out.”

While Barr apologized for the tweet in the immediate aftermath, the show was still canceled, and replaced with a spinoff, “The Conners.” In the wake of Barr’s removal from the show, one of her co-stars, John Goodman, told USA Today, “It felt great to be back, but there’s a hollow center. I miss Rosie real bad,”

In early 2023, Barr hosted a standup special called “Cancel This!” which was hosted on Fox Nation.
