Actress-comedian and producer Roseanne Barr has been seen in public for the first time since ABC canceled the reboot of her show Roseanne on May 29th, 2018. According to a report by Fox News, Roseanne Barr looked disheveled while photographed wearing jeans, flip-flops and a hat. She was smoking a cigarette and seen taking photos of a paparazzo van parked outside her residence. Roseanne stirred controversy after making a racist tweet comparing former Obama administrator advisor Valerie Jarrett as a child between a member of the Muslim Brotherhood and a Planet of the Apes character. ABC deemed the tweet racist and announced her show would be canceled.
Recent reports say that Roseanne Barr contacted the head of ABC pleading and begging for them to keep her show on the air, but it was to no avail. Roseanne has publicly expressed concern for her fellow co-stars and those who worked on the program who are suddenly out of a job due to her comments.
Though Roseanne apologized for the comments and left Twitter she quickly returned to announce that the drug Ambien was to blame for the remarks. The makers of Ambien responded by releasing a statement saying their medication doesn’t make anyone become racist.
Roseanne Barr is a native of Utah and was spotted in her hometown by paparazzi. The Daily Mail reported that Roseanne looked unrecognizable. It is unclear if Roseanne typically looks like she did in the paparazzi photos without her makeup and hair done, or if she is suffering severe stress and that was the cause for the difference in her appearance.
Roseanne Barr had previously planned to speak to Joe Rogan about the incident but canceled at the last minute.
