Comedian Roseanne Barr was once America’s favorite “domestic goddess,” as she labeled herself, and now she is premiering her first special in 15 years on Fox News's streaming platform Fox Nation.
The special, Roseanne Barr: Cancel This!, looks to be continuing Barr's conservative comments and style — and that's by its name alone.
Blond, with her hair done in a pair of ponytails, and wearing denim, Barr seems to be catering to the MAGA, QAnon demographic. Clips posted online see Barr mocking trans identities.
Conservative television personality Benny Johnson shared a clip on Twitter, where Barr says that kids “have no concept of reality! They’ve been living in a bubble forever!” She adds, “Asking questions that have nothing to do with the real world — what is my gender, Mom? What is my gender? Your gender is ‘Get a job,’ that’s your gender!”
She goes on from there to rhetorically ask, “What is a woman?’ They don’t know that? That one they’re asking all the time."
“I’ll tell you what a woman is. A woman is me!”
Barr continues, “A woman is someone who cleans up everybody else’s s**t! That’s what a woman is! A woman is somebody whose boobs hang down to her knees with a prolapsed uterus from giving birth to five ungrateful little privileged f**ks who’ve never had to work for anything in their whole damn lives!”
The clip concludes with a seemingly MAGA-required sentence: “My pronouns are kiss/my/ass!”
Barr first became famous for her sitcom Roseanne, which premiered in the very late '80s and became a staple of ABC prime-time viewing in the '90s, touching on major issues of the time.
The sitcom was rebooted in 2018. The show's popularity got it renewed for a second season. However, in May of that year, she was fired from the show after making a racist statement about Valerie Jarrett, who had been a senior adviser to President Barack Obama.
This was the seeming culmination of other tweets over the same day that shared QAnon and Pizzagate ideation as well as other conspiracy theories, and despite an apology that blamed medication (and the pharmaceutical company later made a statement that racism isn’t a side effect of that drug), she was fired from the show — which was subsequently renamed and went on without her.
Barr has bashed progressives and supported former President Donald Trump. She also said that she "appreciated" Ye's recent antis-Semitic tweets, even though she is Jewish.
The comedian was recently on Tucker Carlson's show to promote the special. She called liberals,“fascist and Nazi — they do experiments on captive populations. No different and it’s disgusting. And then we’re supposed to see that as progressive? It’s not. It’s anything but.”
It's not clear what she was referring to.
Barr then went on to say, “I’m not going to let them have the last word, not on me. I’ll be fighting in my Depends…I don’t care, I’m never gonna give up. They’re not gonna get me.”
