Default Roseanne Barr blames anti-Semitism for her ABC ouster

https://pagesix.com/2019/01/11/rosea...in-abc-firing/

“I feel that what happened to me, a large part of it is anti-Semitism,” the former Roseanne star told The Jerusalem Post. “I think it played a part — the fact that I was never allowed to explain what I meant — and what I meant was a commentary on Iran — so they purposely mischaracterized what I said and wouldn’t let me explain. And in haste they did something unprecedented that they’ve never done to any other artist." Barr said she thinks being the most pro-Israel person led to her ouster.

That's ridiculous. ABC's president, Ben Sherwood, is Jewish, as is Paul Lee (president of ABC Entertainment), David Braun (previous president), Bob Iger (previous president), Fred Silverman (previous president) and more, going all the way back to Leonard Goldensen (former president in the 1950s). ABC is the most Jewish-friendly TV network there ever was.

Also, they fired her for her comments, and they've certainly done that before, too.

She's a rather crude, vulgar individual with very little innate talent but a supreme penchant for shocking and self-publicity, who struck it lucky in the 1980s with a show which rebelled against the Dallas and Dynasty- type soaps of their day. Her downfall has nothing whatsoever to do with her religion but is entirely at her own hands.


I doubt that despite her considerable wealth she has been comfortable in her own skin for quite awhile and I think at 66 years old she should take time to reflect on the trajectory of her life, to work through her demons and maybe reconnect with her family through which she may regain the fulfilment which has been lacking in her character for so long.

Oh for Pete’s sake. She needs to quit while she’s behind.

Another bigot playing the victim card.

Go away, Roseanne -- just go away.

She’s mentally ill. She needs to seek medical attention. This has nothing to do with anti-semitism. She’s delusional. Media needs to stop showing the spotlight in her.
