Roseanne Barr Breaks Silence on Losing Hollywood Show: ‘Witch-Burning’ & ‘Terrible Censorship’

Actress Roseanne Barr has spoken out to say that “witch-burning” and “terrible censorship” were the reasons she lost her Hollywood TV show.

Barr is breaking her silence in a new documentary on Reelz called, Roseanne: Kicked Out of Hollywood.

And the sitcom legend is holding nothing back.

She says her career was canceled due to “witch-burning” by the corporate media.

Barr revealed that her show was canceled 40 minutes after she posted the now-infamous tweet about Valerie Jarret.

“I used to be called a racist,” she says in the documentary.

“It was politically expedient for them to speak nonsense in my name.”

Barr says she got a call soon after the tweet from her longtime boyfriend, Johnny Argent, who she said was yelling: “Racist?! Iran isn’t a f**king race, you idiot!”

“Witch-burning is what it is,” Barr says.

“Intellectual witch-burning, and arrogance and ignorance.

“All of the press of the United States and the world, how they interpreted my tweet without any knowledge of the fact that I was sending it to a journalist in Iran about what was happening to the people in Iran.

“We’re under such terrible censorship.

“It’s just terrible and frightening.
