Roseanne Barr’s hit sitcom “Roseanne,” which first aired in 1988, made her a well-known name. The 1990s sitcom was brought back in the 2000s, but it was canceled in 2018 after Barr sent out a tweet that got her fired from Hollywood.
The tweet was about Valerie Jarrett, who is an advisor to President Obama. Barr knows that what she wrote was wrong, and when ABC asked her why she tweeted a racist comment, she didn’t have a good reason. She just said she made a mistake and wrote something she shouldn’t have. Barr did say that she had taken Ambien before sending the tweet, but that doesn’t make up for what she did.
She wanted to say sorry on TV, but she wasn’t able to. Instead, her show was canceled in 2018, and she hasn’t worked in Hollywood since then.
Now that Barr is back, she has an idea for a new TV show. In the meantime, she has a new documentary called “Roseanne: Kicked Out of Hollywood” in which she explains why she should be given another chance. Watch the video below to learn more about why Barr was kicked out of Hollywood and why she thinks she should be given a chance to come back.
Reelz has the documentary “Roseanne: Kicked out of Hollywood.” The website says this about it: “Bold, brash Roseanne Barr was a trailblazing stand up comic who rocked the comedy world in the mid-1980s and went on to become a Hollywood mega-star with her own top-rated, long running sitcom. She did it again with another hit show years later, but after a scandalous tweet her top rated comeback canceled and the comedy legend’s career was derailed. Now an in depth, personal account from Roseanne herself, her boyfriend Johnny, along with celebrity and insider interviews, this candid one hour documentary special takes a raw and revealing look inside the rise, superstardom and ultimate cancel culture casualty of America’s Domestic Goddess like never before in Roseanne Barr: Kicked Out of Hollywood.”
Do you think Barr will ever get to have her own TV show again? Did you ever watch “Roseanne”? Why do you think ABC didn’t give her a chance to say she was sorry on national TV? Do you think she really feels bad about what she tweeted? Do you think she should get another chance?
