Roseanne is making her comeback in the standup comedy world, and she’s calling out cancel culture and the woke left.
Roseanne Barr is finally returning to the standup comedy stage for the first time in nearly twenty years after she was cancelled over a tweet about Valerie Jarrett, who is a former advisor to Barack Obama.
Barr Slams Cancel Culture
Daily Mail reported that Barr, 70, used her special to speak out against cancel culture, calling out the fact that while she was cancelled, others were given second chances.
“They didn’t do it to anyone else in Hollywood, although they always [mention] Dave Chappelle and Louis C.K.,” she said. “Well, Louis C.K. did lose everything, but he committed an actual [offense]. And Dave Chappelle was protected by Netflix.”
“I’m the only person who’s lost everything, whose life’s work was stolen, stolen by people who I thought loved me. And there was silence,” she continued. “There was no one in Hollywood really defending me publicly.”
Barr also mocked the woke left for their obsession with gender identity and pronouns.
“These people, they have no concept of reality. They’ve been living in a bubble forever. Asking questions have nothing to do with the real world,” she said. “‘What is my gender, mom? What is my gender?’ Your gender is, get a job. That’s your gender.”
Barr then paused for her audience to cheer before she continued.
“What are they thinking? Ask a – what is a woman? They don’t know that? That one they’re asking all the time. What is a woman? I’ll tell you what a woman is. A woman is me,” she said. “That’s what a woman is, okay? A woman is someone who cleans up everybody else’s shit. 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 bastards that have never had to work for anything in their whole damn life,” she continued. “My pronouns are, kiss my a!”
Barr was “cancelled” back in 2018 when she compared Jarrett, who is black, to a character from the movie Planet Of The Apes in a late night tweet. Though she immediately apologized and denied knowing that Jarrett was black, Barr was immediately fired by ABC from the reboot of her eponymous sitcom “Roseanne.”
