As the old saying goes, “If you’re a racist and you take some Ambien, you’re now a racist with Ambien in your system.” These are the facts. As we all know, Roseanne Barr tried to debunk this old saying and blame her racist tweet about Valerie Jarrett on the fact that she had taken Ambien that night, but turns out that’s not a solid argument in the eyes of
anyone with a functioning brain some people. Roseanne, if you’re reading this (I don’t see why you wouldn’t be) , may I offer a hot tip from me to you: blaming the drugs you took that night only works when apologizing for the 2 hour Snapchat video you took of the EDM concert in its entirety and sent to all of your contacts. The tweet you made to prove you’re a raging racist? Not so much. Maybe blame that one on your racism. Just a thought!
Anyway, since the world is full of idiots, there is debate over whether or not the tweet was racist, and if Roseanne herself is racist. I will give you a small hint: they both are. Comparing a black woman to an ape is racist as all fuck, and being someone who would do that makes you a racist. Still don’t think Roseanne is a bigot because of one measly tweet where she said something extremely racist? No prob, I’ve done some hardcore Googling investigating and found some other shit Roseanne has done and said that show we really should have seen this coming. And by we I mean ABC. Anyway, now that it’s too late, here’s some general fuckery Roseanne Barr has spewed in the past. You’re welcome? Sorry? Idk.
That Time She Said Susan Rice Has “Ape Balls”

Look, we know it’s supes important to have an online brand, but maybe go with something besides making comments about how black women have the same traits as apes. It’s not cute. It’s…what’s the word I’m looking for…undeniable racist. That’s it. Great, next.
That Time She Got On Board With 4Chan Conspiracies
I always thought 4chan was where male virgins go to group chat about how women who have jobs are witches, but I guess they also dabble in conspiracy theories about how celebs and Dems have an underground circle of child sex slaves. Cute. Like I was saying, there’s some adorable conspiracy theory that the world is run by a deep state group of Democrats and celebs, and Trump is about to single-small-handedly them all down. Sounds legit. According to a Daily Beast article, this 4Chan based theory is called QAnon. Because if you’re going to have a baseless conspiracy theory, you simply must give it a name that sounds like a knock-off Viagra that isn’t approved by the FDA. Anyway, in a tweet that has since been deleted, Roseanne said:
“President Trump has freed so many children held in bondage to pimps all over this world. Hundreds each month. He has broken up trafficking rings in high places everywhere.notice that. I disagree on some things, but give him benefit of the doubt-4 now.”
My fav part about all of this, is that according to the previously mentioned Daily Beast article, Roseanne tried to reach out to QAnon on Twitter. Is he a person? Roseanne seemed to think so. She even tweeted, “tell Qanon to DM me in the nexxt 24 hours,” one night.
Roseanne Barr to QAnon: U up?
That Time She Tweeted That Chelsea Clinton Is Married to a George Soros Relative
Good morning Roseanne – my given middle name is Victoria. I imagine George Soros’s nephews are lovely people. I’m just not married to one. I am grateful for the important work @OpenSociety does in the world. Have a great day! https://t.co/mXokiTEwN7

The problem with tweeting about Chelsea Clinton being married to George Soros is that Chelsea Clinton is not married to George Soros. George Soros is a liberal financier, but Roseanne likes to claim that he was a Nazi collaborator. That is also untrue. Do you spy with your little eye a pattern here?
That Time She Tweeted About A Parkland Survivor Giving A Nazi Salute
ICYMI Roseanne replied to a David Hogg conspiracy theorist who tagged the actual boy, but then ABC made her delete it. Don't worry, here's a screenshot: pic.twitter.com/yftDrSdq6b

That Time She Dressed Up As Hitler For This Weird AF Photoshoot
Lest we forget this terrifying photoshoot from 2009. A lot to unpack here. Mainly that Roseanne is dressed as Hitler and is baking cookies, with the implication that the cookies are Jews from the Holocaust. Not great. Roseanne herself is Jewish, but this is still troubling in…so many ways. Roseanne defended the photos in 2011 during an episode of The Green Room with Paul Provenza and said:
I’m not making fun of people in the ovens … There’s another, deeper layer to it. You know just the everyday. Moving off this Holocaust. There’s been about fifty of them since then. That’s what I’m kind of trying to say. Is like, Jesus Christ it’s so f–king every day now, holocausts, it’s like baking cookies…That’s what I’m trying to say. Let’s stop holocausts.”
My Comedy Writing Professor in College: Tragedy + Time = Comedy
Rosanne Barr: The Holocaust + 50 “Holocausts” + Baking Cookies = Comedy/Let’s stop holocausts!
Much like my annoying coworker, Roseanne Barr keeps claiming she’s going to leave Twitter but then continues to keep tweeting more bullshit. So looks like this list will keep on growing. Amaze.
Heads up, you need to keep up with the news. It’s not cute anymore. That’s why we’ve created a 5x weekly newsletter called The ‘Sup that will explain all the news of the week in a hilarious af way. Because if we weren’t laughing, we’d be crying. Sign up for The ‘Sup now!
