Roseanne also attacked actress Alyssa Milano who was a critic of Roseanne when she was dealing with her scandal.
Roseanne Barr has been keeping herself busy since being fired from the revival of her sitcom at ABC. In a recent 30-minute interview on her personal YouTube channel, the star got incredibly candid about fellow actors Jussie Smollett, Alyssa Milano as well as Donald Trump and the Democratic Party.
The 66-year-old sat down for a lengthy interview with self-proclaimed hip-hop artist and news analyst An0maly to discuss a slew of topics, starting with the controversy surrounding “Empire” star Jussie Smollett. Barr incorrectly stated that the actor accused of faking a hate crime attack to gain publicity has been fired completely from the show before discussing his alleged crimes.
“Could you imagine if he was white?” Barr asked. “And he said he was white and two black guys beat him up? Can you imagine what would happen to that guy?”
The former “Roseanne” star went on to talk about how a culture of identity politics has lead to people like her losing work over a racist tweet and people like Smollett, who may have committed genuine crimes, getting the same vitriol in the public eye. After advocating for people to be without a political party, she called out one star in particular.
