Roseanne Barr’s Racist Twitter Rant
Roseanne Barr seemed unstoppable when her television series Roseanne made a triumphant return to television in 2018. The show returned after a 20-year hiatus to huge ratings, and fans were so excited to spend time with the Conner family. Unfortunately, that all came to an end with just one tweet.
Barr took to Twitter and made a racist remark about former Obama aide, Valerie Jarrett, saying that she was the offspring of the “Muslim Brotherhood & Planet of the Apes.” CBS swiftly fired her from her own show. Rosanne went on without the comedian, and the ratings suffered. Barr now lives a life of exile.
