Roseanne Barr learned the hard way that Free Speech has its limits. This morning, on Twitter, Roseanne Barr continued to make excuses for her racist comments regarding former Obama official Valerie Jarrett. In an early morning tweet, Roseanne Barr said Ambien was the cause of her late-night racist tweet.
However, this wasn't a one-off racist tweet, in fact, Roseanne Barr has a history of posting racist tweets especially regarding black women. In 2013, Mrs. Barr called former Obama National Security Advisor Susan Rice an "ape." Mrs. Barr has yet to apologize for that racist tweet. Yesterday, the same day as the racist tweet, Roseanne sent out another racist tweet regarding billionaire George Soros wherein she claimed Soros collaborated with Nazis and stole the wealth of Jews. To be clear: Mr. Soros was 13-years-old at the time of the Holocaust. This Soros conspiracy theory has been roundly debunked especially by his family.
Yesterday, ABC canceled the reboot of the Roseanne show.
