Roseanne Barr Implies Michelle Obama Was Behind Her Firing

Barr retweeted a user who said Michelle Obama was behind her firing from ABC.

Roseanne Barr said Michelle Obama could be behind her firing.

Actress Roseanne Barr tweeted on Wednesday that she may fight ABC’s move to cancel her show, according to Fox News. Barr also appeared to endorse the idea that former First Lady Michelle Obama was behind her firing.

On Tuesday, ABC announced that it would be cancelling the hit show “Roseanne” after Barr sent out a controversial tweet about Valerie Jarrett, a former top aide under President Barack Obama.

“Muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby=vj,” Barr wrote in a now deleted tweet.

On Wednesday, Barr tweeted that the positive feedback she has received from people who still support her has embolden her efforts to combat ABC. Barr said she is going to examine all of her options and fight back.

Here’s where it gets interesting: Barr shared a tweet from Josh Cornett, a self-described activist, who said ABC Entertainment President Channing Dungey was pressured by the former first lady to cancel her show.

Barr retweeted the claim to her 838,000 followers, which ignited a firestorm online.

Barr’s decision to retweet the claim, which has not been corroborated, has raised a slew of questions.

One user wrote to Barr saying Michelle may have sabotaged her top rated show because the Obamas’ just signed a massive new deal with Netflix.

In response, Barr wrote, “Is that true?”

Prior to that, Barr mocked the Obamas after it was revealed they signed a massive $50 million contract with Netflix. The pro-Trump actress asked her Twitter followers for ideas on what kind of shows the Obamas would create.

Her tweet racked up nearly 6,000 responses, with many users making fun at the horrendous shows that the Obamas would create, such as “I know what Hilary Clinton did last summer” and “Dude, Where did my legacy go?”

Did that set Michelle off? Was she angry about Barr’s top rated show and the fact that she was trolling her online?

It’s not yet clear what connection the Obamas have to Dungey or whether the former first family pushed her to cancel Barr’s show, but many users online were outraged that Barr’s show was ended over one tweet.

Many are asking why Barr was fired over one tweet when liberals on “The View” can call Christianity a “mental illness” and late night host Jimmy Kimmel can insult and use vile language to describe President Donald Trump without any reprisal.
Many agree that Barr should fight back against ABC. But more importantly, if Michelle pushed Dungey to cancel Barr’s show, that would be a major scandal that would raise serious questions.
