Roseanne Barr clearly used poor judgment when she compared Barack Obama’s arguably evil, right-hand woman, Valerie Jarrett to a Planet of the Apes character in a single tweet, but did she deserve to lose her show? After the left went nuclear on Roseanne Barr (a Trump supporter on her show) on social media for her tweet, ABC executives asked the comedian whose namesake TV sitcom reboot blew up the ratings, to leave her own show. The ABC network has recently announced they will continue to air the show without its most relevant and popular character.

“Inside every bad thing is a good thing waiting to happen and I feel very excited because I’ve already been offered so many things and I almost already accepted one really good offer to go back on TV and I might do it,” the comedian stated during a new interview with Rabbi Schmuley Boteach. “But we’ll see.”
Barr also revealed during the chat, the second with the Rabbi in recent weeks, that she didn’t ask for money when signing away the rights to her show — allowing ABC to proceed with a spinoff series that somehow omits her character.
“I thought signing off of my own life’s work and asking for nothing in return, I thought that was a penance,” she explained amid a discussion of her Jewish faith. “Sometimes you ask people what do you think should be done to you knowing what you’ve done wrong and it seems that people always know what should be done to them. I just knew that was the right thing and I want to do the right thing because I’ve lived my life, most part of it, to do the right thing for all people, not just Jews.”
During her first interview with Boteach, Barr broke done in tears while once again apologizing for her racist tweet directed at Valerie Jarrett, who was an aide during the Obama White House. – FOX News
