Roseanne Barr Attacks Co-Star, Is So Not Sorry for Anything

In case it wasn’t obvious based on her Nazi costumes, racist insults and affection for Donald Trump, it ought to be obvious now:

Roseanne Barr is a terrible human being.

Because she said that former Barack Obama advisor Valerie Jarrett was what would happen if the “Muslim brotherhood [and] planet of the apes had a baby?”

Well, yes.

But also because Barr issued the phoniest apology of all-time shortly after writing this Tweet — and then issued an endless array of even phonier statements on social media early Wednesday morning.

In a barrage of Tweets that started out on the right note (“I just want to apologize to the hundreds of people,and wonderful writers and talented actors who lost their jobs on my show due to my stupid tweet.”), Barr ended up quoting a significant number of her defenders.

She went from acknowledging that ABC was right to cancel her sitcom…

… to saying ABC was a hypocrite for not punishing Joy Behar for referring to Christians as mentally ill.

Oh, and the comedian also claimed she wrote that “joke” about Jarrett because had been taking Ambien.

Now, Barr has continued her assault against anyone who thinks she’s racist by attacking someone with whom she worked closely on Roseanne.

After ABC announced it was pulling the plug on Season 11, Michael Fishman – who portrayed Barr’s son D.J. during the show’s original run and its 2018 reboot – Tweeted that he was “devastated” by the show getting canceled.

He also denounced his TV mom’s remarks via a lengthy and heartfelt message.

“Our cast, crew, writers, and production staff strived for inclusiveness, with numerous storylines designed to reflect inclusiveness,” Fishman wrote. “The words of one person do not exemplify the thinking of all involved.”

He continued:

I condemn these statements vehemently. They are reprehensible and intolerable, contradicting my beliefs and outlook on life and society. I have always lived and taught my children to be inclusive.

I believe our show strived to embrace different backgrounds and opinions, through open dialogue.

Roseanne read this thoughtful response to the situation and gave Fishman credit for having such a mature and well-reasoned take on the scandal

Just kidding.

She totally took him to task for it.

“I created the platform for that inclusivity and you know it. You throw me under the bus. nice!” replied Barr.

These are totally the words of someone who recognizes she made an inappropriate comment and is aware that she’s very much in the wrong here, huh?

Elsewhere, Sara Gilbert, who played Roseanne’s daughter Darlene, also reacted on Twitter, saying that Barr’s comments were “abhorrent and do not reflect the beliefs of our cast and crew or anyone associated with our show.”

She added: “I am disappointed with her actions to say the least.”

“Wow! unreal,” Roseanne wrote in response to this stance.

At one point today, Barr even said she “feels bad” for President Trump because he is on the receiving end of hatred everyday.

It’s almost like he and Roseanne deserve it.

Finally, Sanofi, the pharmaceutical company behind Ambien, has also spoken out.

It had something to say after Roseanne Tweeted the following:

“Guys I did something unforgiveable so do not defend me. It was 2 in the morning and I was ambien tweeting-it was memorial day too-i went 2 far & do not want it defended-it was egregious Indefensible.

“I made a mistake I wish I hadn’t but…don’t defend it please.”

Wrote the makers of the sleeping pill to which Roseanne is referring to here:

People of all races, religions and nationalities work at Sanofi every day to improve the lives of people around the world.

While all pharmaceutical treatments have side effects, racism is not a known side effect of any Sanofi medication.

And so it has come to this: Roseanne Barr is so awful, she has turned a pharmaceutical company into the good guy.

That’s impressive work right there.

Jaime King: 4-Year-Old Son Hit by Glass Shards as Man Attacks Her Car

On Wednesday, Jaime King’s vehicle was attacked by a man who repeatedly struck a windshield until it sent shards of glass raining down into the car.

While Jaime was not in the car, her friend was in the driver’s seat … and her four-year-old son was also in the car.

This is so scary.

Entertainment Tonight reports that a man jumped onto King’s car and pummeled the rear windshield while it was parked on Bedford Drive.

This is what sent shards of glass flying into the vehicle and even onto King’s son, James Knight Newman. He is only 4 years old.

Beverly Hills police offered up their description of the event, saying: 

“The suspect jumped on the rear windshield causing glass to shatter and strike the child.”

Horrifying on multiple levels. It’s unclear if James was injured by the glass, but it’s hard to imagine that this event wasn’t traumatic.

Police continued to describe the incident, saying:

“In an effort to protect the child, the female driver exited the vehicle and confronted the suspect at which time he threw a can at her, striking her arm.”

Good for her for putting herself in harm’s way to protect a 4-year-old child.

It’s absolutely the right thing to do, especially when a mother has entrusted her child to your care, even for just a few minutes.

King was not present at the time, but was later seen at the site of the attack.

Understandably, she appeared very distraught.

The man who carried out this alleged attack was later identified as Paul Francis Floyd, a 47-year-old Los Angeles man.

Police report that he had also kicked another vehicle before carrying out this terrible assault upon King’s car and its occupants.

As you can imagine, Floyd has been arrested. He’s being held on $ 100,000 bond while police continue to investigate.

His charges include:

-Felony child endangerment

-Misdemeanor battery

-Two counts of felony vandalism

That first charge is what happens when you attack a vehicle containing a child and end up raining glass shards on a 4-year-old.

That second charge is, we imagine, what happens when you throw a can at a woman who’s taking action to protect a child.

James Knight Newman

James Knight Newman is, by all accounts, a precious and bright boy.

If you’re looking for testimonials, the above photo of him was shared by Jared Eng — you know, of Just Jared fame.

His parents are raising him to be well-spoken and hold good values. Jaime King herself is, of course, an outspoken feminist and dedicated to both of her sons.

This must be a nightmare for her.

But children lack the coping mechanisms and perspective that adults can employ to recover from trauma. As scary as this situation would be for anyone, it’s always worse for a child.

Let’s hope that James is able to process this as healthily and as soon as possible.

Jaime King is famously a friend of Taylor Swift.

Some squadmates come and go, but Taylor is the godmother of King’s other, younger son, Leo Thames Newman.

We imagine that she’ll be leaning on the support of friends in the near future as her whole family comes to grips with the aftermath of this frightening attack.

She must be grateful for her unnamed friend who was in the car. Not everyone is willing to put themselves in harms way and take a bullet — or, in this case, a can — to the arm to protect their friend’s child.

Derick Dillard Attacks Jazz Jennings AGAIN, Gets Torn Apart on Twitter

If you’re a fan of the Duggar family, then you’re probably already aware that Derick Dillard has been fired from Counting On as a result of his decision to berate and harass fellow TLC star Jazz Jennings.

Back in November, Dillard directed an unprovoked social media tirade at Jennings, a transgender teen who also stars in a reality show on the network.

In the months since, neither Derick nor his wife, Jill Duggar, has filmed any scenes for her family’s popular series, and it doesn’t look as though they’ll be returning to the spotlight anytime soon.

These days, it seems that Derick is trying his best to make amends, but as usual, he’s just digging himself a deeper hole.

The latest Derick dust-up has had to do with the former reality star’s views on the national gun control debate.

Last week, Dillard attacked the survivors of the Parkland school shooting for behaving in a “ridiculous” fashion.

Needless to say, his comments were not well-received.

Yesterday, he tweeted a link to an article in which he was criticized for being critical of traumatized teens.

“No, I criticized the media’s use of kids again…like @TLC uses Jazz,” Derick tweeted in his own defense.

“My heart goes out to the victims, but all ideas should be heard, and subjected to criticism.”

He probably would’ve been better off not bringing up Jazz up again, but ultimately it was a pretty tame comment by Derick standards.

Unfortunately, when fans responded to the tweet, Derick chose to engage with them in offensive fashion:

When one Twitter user accused Derick of bullying Jazz, Dillard responded:

“Hi, please realize that I never said anything against him.

“If you read that in a tabloid, I encourage you to be extremely skeptical of anything put out by any opinion or gossip publication.”

Yes, while claiming that he can’t understand why people think he’s being unkind to Jazz, Derick once again misgendered the girl.

Not surprisingly, fans weren’t having it:

“If you are uncomfortable or against using the pronoun ‘her’ you could just use the name ‘Jazz’,” wrote one follower.

“You don’t have to go out of your way with the ‘he’ and ‘him.’ It would be the kind thing to do. Just sayin.”

“You are a hypocrite and a child abuser and a bully,” tweeted another.

A third slammed Derick as an “ignorant piece of sh-t.”

Dillard has yet to respond to the latest round of criticism against him.

As for the Parkland issue, however, Dillard is sticking to his guns – literally.

He recently tweeted a link to a post about a conspiracy theories and alleged anti-gun media biases with this description:

“True; I think it’s pretty obvious.  My wife has over 200,000 followers and still hasn’t been verified.”

Well Der, if it’s any consolation, now that you’ve gotten her kicked off her show, Jill probably won’t have that many followers for long!

Derick Dillard Attacks Parkland Shooting Survivors: They’re Ridiculous!

Derick Dillard is at it again.

Just when you thought the Duggar family’s resident blowhard had learned his lesson about bullying the most vulnerable segments of our population, he goes and hits a new low.

As you’ve no doubt heard by now, a school shooting in Parkland, Florida claimed 17 lives last month.

In the wake of the tragedy, several students have made it their mission to take on the NRA and the politicians they feel are responsible for America’s ludicrously permissive policies on assault weapons.

Shockingly, these courageous teens have been met with a brutal backlash, with several reporting that they’ve received death threats from angry weapons fetishists.

On Wednesday, Jill Duggar’s husband joined the effort to try and discredit the grieving teens:

“This has gotten a little ridiculous; at least 2 networks are now using kids to push their liberal agendas,” Derick tweeted.

“It’s obviously not all about the kids when voices like @KyleKashuv aren’t as elevated. Liberal Media… at least be consistent so you can hide your biased tactics better.”

Not surprisingly, the reaction against Derick’s ignorant remarks was swift and harsh:

“These kids have gone through more than most of us and if you have watched any of the coverage you would know how smart and articulate they are,” wrote one critic

“They are better than a lot of people in the world. Back off Derick.” another commented.

“Derick, I feel sorry for you that your worldview is so warped you can’t see the reality right in front of you. These kids are bravely standing up for each other and for other children,” a third argued, adding:

“You’re being condescending to them when you say they’re being ‘used.'”

Regardless of your stance on the gun control issue, we’re all decent people can agree that attacking teens who have experienced a tragedy and are already receiving death threats from others is not an appropriate use of a grown man’s time.

And Derick of all people should know that sometimes the best thing to say is nothing.

Dillard was recently fired by TLC after a bizarre social media tirade directed ata a fellow star of the network,

For reasons clear only to him, Derick attacked Jazz Jennings, a transgender teen who serves as the subject of the reality series I Am Jazz.

While fans pleaded with him to relent, Derick continued to accuse Jennings of “promoting an unreality” and opposing the will of God.

Since his firing, neither Derick nor Jill have appeared on her family’s reality series.

It’s not known how the Dillards are supporting themselves these days, but in the past, the family has been known to rely on donations from fans to keep food on the table.

Needless to say, it’s not the most stable source of income, and it might be a good idea for Derick to stop biting the hand that feeds him by alienating his social media followers.

Dina Manzo Attacks Kylie Jenner: Try Being a Role Model for Once!

When most people learn that someone else gave birth to a baby, they offer congratulations.

Maybe some advice.

But when Dina Manzo learned that Kylie Jenner had become a first-time mother last week, she chose instead to deliver a rather harsh critique of the reality star.

As most celebrity gossip fans know by now, Kylie welcomed a daughter into the world on February 1.

She did so mostly in secret, having remained both quiet and out of the spotlight for the duration of her pregnancy.

She finally announced the arrival of her first child with Travis Scott via a fairly long and emotional statement this past Sunday.

It read, in part, “I’m sorry for keeping you in the dark through all the assumptions,” as she addressed the controversy over her lengthy silence on this issue.

“I knew for myself I needed to prepare for this role of a lifetime in the most positive, stress free, and healthy way I knew how,” added Kylie. “I chose to do it this way for my little life and our happiness.”

Read the full statement here:

kj statement

It’s actually pretty mature and insightful.

In our opinion, at least.

But not in the opinion of Manzo.

“Congrats Kylie on your baby girl,” Tweeted the former Real Housewives of New Jersey cast member shortly after Kylie’s birth announcement.

It would have been fine if she had stopped there, of course.

“But maybe think about putting out a “don’t try this at home” kinda thing for your very young fans that look up to you,” she added, concluding:

“Having a baby at 20 is not all silk PJ’s & flower walls~Most kids don’t have the $ and support you’re fortunate enough to have.”

manzo tweet

This seems to be a reference to footage Kylie shared of a baby shower in November that included an endless array of pink roses, along with female guests in expensive pajamas.

The ex-Bravo star is not wrong about how being a mother is a major responsibility.

But Jenner does seem to acknowledge this in the above statement.

Her entire point here is basically that she remained away from the public eye specifically to get ready, on her own terms, for the role of parenthood.

There’s A LOT about which one can criticize the Kardashians and Jenners.

It’s certainly weird, for example, that Kylie, Kim, Khloe and Rob have ALL had children out of wedlock.

But we’re not certain it’s Kylie’s job here to try and thwart other unwanted, young pregnancies around the globe.

She comes across in this statement and in general as someone excited to be a first-time mother and someone aware that this is a very big deal.

What more does Dina want from her?

According to an E! News source, meanwhile, Jenner is fully embracing all aspects of having a newborn so far.

“Kylie’s first few days of motherhood have been the happiest of her life,” this insider says.

It’s important to remember, naturally, that E! benefits from propping of Kylie and her siblings, considering this network airs Keeping Up with the Kardashians.

Adds the website:

“She feels like being a mom is her true calling and there’s nothing that’s ever felt so right.

“Bringing the baby home has been the greatest joy and most sacred experience, she is elated and overjoyed.

“Kylie felt so ready to meet the baby and had been counting down the weeks for what felt like forever, she can’t believe she’s finally here and in her arms and this journey is beginning.”

What do you think of Manzo’s stance?

She Kylie’s priority here be making it clear to other 20-year olds that having a baby is not easy and they should act accordingly?

Chris Lopez Attacks Kailyn Lowry on Twitter: Maybe I’ll Bang Briana DeJesus!

Kailyn Lowry just can’t seem to escape the drama these days.

Between her ongoing feud with Briana DeJesus, her complicated situation with Javi Marroquin, and her issues with her other baby daddies, the girl basically spends her days dealing with one mess after another.

And now it seems her various conflicts are overlapping, with one foe using another’s name to taunt Kailyn on social media.

As you may have heard, Kail is having problems with the father of her youngest son.

Chris Lopez is fighting her for custody of baby Lux, and it appears that the battle is getting uglier by the day.

Fortunately for Kailyn, Chris has been shooting himself in the foot by going after her on social media.

He’s already got a hard road ahead of him as a sketchy dad who initially wanted nothing to do with his son.

Now, he’s making himself look even worse in the eyes of any family court judge by savagely attacking Lux’s mom on Twitter.

According to In Touch Weekly, in a since-deleted tweet, Lopez wrote that he planned to “hit up” Briana DeJesus in order to get revenge on Kail.

As we mentioned earlier, Kailyn and Briana are bitter rivals, and their hostility toward one another was already exacerbated when Briana dated Javi Marroquin, Kailyn’s ex-husband and the father of her second son.

Some of his followers joined in on denigrating Kail in brutal fashion.

“Don’t even give that b-tch a life,” wrote one.

Not surprisingly, Kail’s legion of faithful fans quickly jumped to her defense.

“She gave him life lol,” wrote one, adding:

“You think this non-factor got 13k followers by himself? 13k and 99.9% of the time he gets no likes or responses. If you were able to add and weren’t blind you possibly [could] put 2+2 together.”

Lopez was quick to respond:

“These 13k followers don’t mean a thing tho lol I honestly liked it better when y’all didn’t know who I was,” he shot back.

Another follower was quick to suggest that Lopez make better use of his time:

“Instead of trying to hit Bri up to piss Kail off, go work and get yourself a lawyer to see you child,” he tweeted.

Lopez responded to that tweet as well, writing:

“It was a joke lol I don’t want that girl relax DUDEEE,” apparently in reference to Briana.

In all likelihood, Lopez was just joking about dating Briana.

But it’s simply not a good look to throw shade at a single mom who recently tweeted about struggling with body shaming and other negative aspects of life in the public eye.

If Lopez is serious about wanting to be a bigger part of his son’s life, he should probably put down the phone ASAP.
