Right-Wing Media Rally Behind Roseanne Barr And Her Racist Tweet

Roseanne Barr, the actress who has become a favorite of the right-wing pro-Trump movement for her role in promoting laughably untrue conspiracy theories as well as her undying support for President Trump, was fired from ABC today in response to public outrage over a blatantly racist tweet she posted.

Barr threw a racist insult at former Obama White House advisor Valerie Jarrett on Twitter this morning, claiming Jarrett is what would happen if “muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby.”

The internet rightfully exploded in outrage over the unabashed racism, so much so that Barr issued a public apology and said that she was going to stop using Twitter. But hours later, ABC announced that it was canceling Barr’s recently revived show. ABC Entertainment president Channing Dungey told CBS News, “”Roseanne’s Twitter statement is abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values, and we have decided to cancel her show.”

Aside from today’s casual racism, Barr has also been a vocal supporter of the “#QAnon” conspiracy theory, which alleges that a high-ranking intelligence sources have been ordered by Trump to publish a series of riddles on anonymous image boards that supposedly reveal that Robert Mueller’s investigation into possible foreign interference in the 2016 election is actually a secret mission to dismantle a global satanic pedophile ring.

Despite all of this, right-wing media figures charged into the arena to defend Barr and attack liberals who they believe unfairly criticized her racist tweet.

Fox News radio host Todd Starnes sent a snarky message alleging that conservative women are disparaged by Hollywood:

Alex Jones, the conspiracy theorist leading Infowars, quickly invited Barr on his show:

Turning Point USA president Charlie Kirk compared Barr to MSNBC host Joy Reid, who was forced to apologize for anti-LGBTQ blog posts she had written years ago:

 

Conspiracy theorist and “Pizzagate” promoter David Seaman’s Fulcrum News said that Barr’s cancellation proved that media companies are “proven enemies of the American people”:

 

Ted Nugent, an NRA board member, called people upset by Barr’s tweet “lying dishonest soulless freaks from Planet of the Apes”:

Trump-loving sycophant and radio host Bill Mitchell said he didn’t understand why Barr’s tweet was racist in the first place before he posted his own racist tweet of his own:

 

Laura Loomer, a rampant anti-Muslim conspiracy theorist, said it was “so lame” that ABC canceled Barr’s show after she “dropped some major red pills in a tweet”:

 

Gateway Pundit writer Lucian Wintrich said he was “canceling ABC,” whatever that means:

 

“New Right” political activist Ali Akbar declared “we have to end Hollywood”:

 

But some pundits thought that Barr’s show was canceled, not for her racist tweet, but for criticizing billionaire George Soros:
