Roseanne Barr just reemerged to slam the PC-obsessed liberal snowflakes who have done everything in their power to get her permanently blacklisted from Hollywood.
Men’s Health reported that during an appearance on Joe Rogan’s podcast this week, Barr opened up about how life is for her one year after her eponymous sitcom was cancelled by ABC after she posted a tweet about Barack Obama’s former advisor Valerie Jarrett that many dubbed to be offensive and racist. In the new interview, Barr said that she has been afraid to perform since her firing because of the “progressives” in the audience who might be offended by the jokes she tells.
“That’s when you start being not funny,” Barr explained. “Self-censorship, that’s how they want us to be. They want us to always be like: should I say this or shouldn’t I?”
Objective reporting for the educated American.
Rogan could not agree with Barr more, saying that as a controversial comedian himself, he is constantly berated by liberal snowflakes who are “offended” by his content.
“I’m so glad I’m f****** old,” Barr said, “So I’ll be passing away from this f****** realm soon enough.”
“I’m offended every f****** day of my f****** life at how godd*** stupid people are,” she added in disgust.
Later in the interview, Barr talked specifically about her infamous tweet, blaming it on the sleep drug Ambien. Rogan then came to her defense, saying that he believes the entire scandal was blown out of proportion.
“People need to understand what’s happening there,” he said. “What’s happening there is a genius comic who’s also on Ambien, smoking pot, drinking, and has legitimate brain injury.”
Rogan was referring to the fact that Barr suffered a severe brain injury in a car accident when she was only 16 years-old which left her in the hospital for six months. Barr went on to restate her apology for the tweet as she also opened up about her struggles with mental illness.
“I’m sorry for allowing myself to become unwell—mentally—because I worked so hard, I didn’t look out for myself,” said Barr, adding that she has been diagnosed with bipolar disorder. “I’ve got more mental illness than you’re average bear. Mental illness is terrifying. I think this whole thing is gonna move me to start talking more honestly about it. Of all the conversations in America, that’s the most needed.”
As the interview came to an end, Barr had a brutal message for her fellow comedians.
“Comics, be brave. Stick up for each other. If you guys had stuck up more for me, I think it woulda stopped,” she said. “But you ignored it because you thought: she’s just an old b*tch, anyway.”
