Roseanne Barr has fired back at ABC over the “woke” network’s decision to cancel her show after giving “The View” co-host Joy Behar a free pass for boasting that she wore blackface.
During an interview on Fox News’s “Outnumbered” this week, Barr took aim at ABC and Behar, one of Roseanne’s most outspoken critics.
Barr made her return to the national spotlight with a new hilarious standup special that goes after her critics, in particular, the “woke” mob behind her being canceled.
She also takes aim at the pro-abortion movement, Fauci, and even her own kids.
While promoting the new show, sitcom legend Barr unloaded on the Hollywood figures who turned their backs on her when she was at her weakest moment.
In her interview on “Outnumbered,” Barr slammed ABC for taking her show away when they did nothing to other network stars who wore blackface.
ABC canceled Barr’s famous sitcom “Roseanne” and even killed off her character to create a spinoff, “The Connors,” after she made comments about former Obama official Valerie Jarret on Twitter.
She said: “I’m being used by a political machine which has exposed itself over the interceding five years since.
“I say, you should’ve allowed me to go on your other news shows, particularly those ones hosted by people who have done blackface and you never fired them.
“Joy Behar did blackface, you didn’t fire her.”
Barr praised Judd Apatow for defending her: “Now I can’t remember his name, but I gave him his first job and he’s a huge director—not Joss Whedon, but the guy who directed 40-Year-Old Virgin.”
She says in her special: “I look out my bedroom window, I can’t believe it, I see all these gorgeous little tiny baby deer in my yard eating the grass around my pool.
‘It’s so fantastic, you know, ‘cause I can pull out my AR-15 and just blow ‘em to smithereens.
“Legally! So fantastic. Open carry, bitches, hell yeah!”

According to TV Insider, Roseanne is an inspiration to other conservative stars:
“It’s funny. People used to ask me years ago, ‘How have you kept this character alive for as long as you have already?’
And I said, ‘Well, it’s like waking up in the morning,’” Grammer replied.
“Life is interesting, and so a character that sort of walks hand-in-hand with you through your lifetime is equally interesting as long as you don’t drop the ball, as long as you don’t stop caring.
“And so, I never stopped caring.”
“It was actually when Roseanne [Barr] got her show back on, I thought to myself, ‘Oh, you know, Frasier’s kind of interesting. We could maybe play him again,’” Grammer added with a smile.
