Roseanne Barr just broke her silence and she absolutely destroyed her hypocritical critics. In case you forgot, Roseanne was taken off the air for some jokes gone wrong.
The left pounced and ABC, never known for having a strong spine, caved.
But a funny thing happened – a new much worse scandal rocked Hollywood and Roseanne got some sweet revenge.
Roseanne Barr is wading into the controversy surrounding Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn’s recent firing from a third installment in the blockbuster series.
She wrote, “I’m disgusted to read all of the support for James Gunn’s pedophile jokes-as the same people supported blacklisting me for a joke they didn’t even understand.”
Last week, Disney booted Gunn, the director and writer, from the two Guardians of the Galaxy movies after conservative Twitter personalities found old tweets in which he joked about pedophilia.
The Guardians of the Galaxy cast sent out largely supportive messages in the wake of the news. As TheWrap reported, a petition for Disney to rehire Gunn has more than 250,000 signatures.
Zoë Saldana, one of the stars of the films, tweeted, “It’s been a challenging weekend I’m not gonna lie. I’m pausing myself to take everything in before I speak out of term. I just want everyone to know I love ALL members of my GOTG family. Always will.”
Chris Pratt, another star of the films, posted a Bible quote: “Understand this, my dear brothers and sisters. Let every person be quick to listen, slow to speak, slow to anger.”
