Roseanne Barr Keeps Trying to Claim She Isn’t Racist

Roseanne Barr sat down and spoke with Sean Hannity on Fox News on Thursday night.

We understand if you shudder at the mere reading of that sentence.

The comedian was on hand, of course, to discuss how her reputation has plummeted to an all-time low following a Tweet she wrote several weeks ago that compared former President Obama advisor Valerie Jarrett to an "ape."

Jarrett, of course, is African-American, although Roseanne has previously alleged she didn't know this.

In the wake of this heinous comment, which wasn't exactly the first time Barr came across as insensitive to other races or ethnicities, ABC canceled the revival of her sitcom.

It has since announced that a spinoff centered around her character's fictional family, The Conners, will premiere in the fall.

(Presumably, the new sitcom will focus on this family reacting to the death of the Roseanne character.)

Speaking to Hannity, Roseanne was at times contrite; at times defensive; and at times defiant.

"I made a mistake, obviously. It cost me everything. My life's work, everything. I made a mistake and I paid the price for it," she said early in the interview.

Barr went on to say that the Tweet was never meant to be "political" in any way, firing back at critics who dared to call her racist.

"Everyone started saying I was a racist, which is like the worst thing you can call a Jewish person, especially someone like me, who grew up with Holocaust survivors," she said, continuing:

"And because of that fact, I took a vow to my religion to my god that I would always fight extremism on either side, right or left."

If this has been the case, Roseanne has had an unusual way of fighting said extremism.

Barr told Hannity she felt she was "fighting the right by being really left," referring to her 2012 run for the presidency as a socialist candidate and added:

"Then I slowly woke up and both extremes are not where my values are. My values are in the middle," she said.

Later in the chat, Roseanne expressed interest in speaking to Jarrett… or maybe working out a way to find a “teachable moment” in an encounter with her.

“I’d want her to hear my voice, that I am so sorry,” she said.

Jarrett, previously, has said she has no real interest in hearing from Barr.

Also previously, Roseanne had chalked up her Tweet to stupidity, not racism.

Do you think Roseanne deserves forgiveness? Or does she just totally suck and should go away as quickly as humanly possible?

Take a look and a listen to her interview with Hannity right here if it will help you decide.

Leah Messer Cares More About D-ck Than Being a Mom, Fans Claim

Last week, the world learned that Leah Messer is dating Jason Jordan, a 38-year-old fellow West Virginian and father to a 2-year-old girl.

Leah's love life has always been a subject of intense interest to Teen Mom 2 fans, even though her storylines on the show these days tend to be centered around the challenges she faces as a mother of three young girls, one of whom suffers from a debilitating medical condition.

Now, it seems some fans think Leah should take a page from the series' producers by focusing less on men and more on her daughters.

It's an unfair allegation that seems to serve no purpose other than maligning the reputation of a loving and devoted mother.

But this is the internet in 2018, a time and virtual place where it's not hard for such fake news to gain traction.

1. The Messer-Simms-Calvert Clan

Leah has really stepped up her motherhood game and renewed her focus on her daughters’ health, happiness, and well-being in recent years. But she still can’t catch a break from her most virulent critics.

2. Ere Jordan

These days, Leah is in a serious relationship with Jason Jordan, but on the latest episodes of TM2 — which were filmed several months ago — she’s still single and looking to mingle … specifically with her second husband, Jeremy Calvert.

3. Spilling Tea

On this week’s episode, Leah met up with Kailyn Lowry in order to record an episode of Kail’s podcast. But before the official interview began, Leah shared an off-the-record revelation.

4. Reunited?

Leah revealed to Kailyn that she had recently “hooked up” with ex-husband Jeremy Calvert.

5. A Complicated Situation

Leah made it sound like a casual hookup, but she’s demonstrated in the past that she would be very much open to the idea of reconciling with Calvert.

6. On the Market

Jeremy recently split with former girlfriend Desi Kibler, so he’s on the market. But it seems some viewers feel that Leah should keep her hands to herself …

Ariana Grande DESTROYS the Claim that She Caused Mac Miller’s DUI

Earlier this month, Ariana Grande and Mac Miller split after almost a year of dating.

About a week later, Mac Miller was arrested for a DUI hit-and-run. That’s no laughing matter.

When a fan took to Twitter to accuse Ariana of being somehow at fault for Mac’s troubles, Ariana shut that down in the best way.

Following Ariana Grande’s powerful BMA’s performance, she’s been a topic of conversation — even more than usual.

Someone on Twitter apparently needed to get some thoughts about Ariana off of their chest, and on Monday, tweeted:

“Mac Miller totalling his G wagon and getting a DUI after Ariana Grande dumped him for another dude …”

We should interject here that this is referring to Ariana’s reported “very new” relationship with Pete Davidson, to which we referred on the anniversary of the Manchester Arena Bombing.

“… After he poured his heart out on a ten song album to her called the divine feminine is just the most heartbreaking thing happening in Hollywood.”

Really? He couldn’t think of anything more heartbreaking than that happening in Hollywood?

fan tries to shame Ariana Grande

Ariana clapped back, hard. As one Twitter user phrased it: “ARIANA! HAD! TIME!” Because she is not mincing words.

“How absurd that you minimize female self-respect and self-worth by saying someone should stay in a toxic relationship because he wrote an album about them.”

She also takes the time to correct a misconception, though of course no amount of art obligates someone to stay in a relationship.

“Which btw isn’t the case (just Cinderella is about me).”

She emphasizes that she was Mac’s girlfriend.

“I am not a babysitter or a mother and no woman should feel that they need to be.”

She was also not his nurse or his therapist.

She says that she’s careda bout his health and well being, starting long before they were dating.

“I have cared for him and tried to support his sobriety and prayed for his balance for years.”

She clarifies that their breakup doesn’t change her desire for him to be happy and healhty.

“(And always will, of course)”

Ariana Grande epic clapback

She continues, however.

“But shaming and blaming women for a man’s inability to keep his s–t together is a very major problem.”

There is so much of that in the world.

“Let’s please stop doing that.”

Keep in mind that some have tried to blame one of the victims for last week’s Sante Fe High School shooting because she rebuffed the shooter’s sexual harassment.

“Of course I didn’t share about how hard or scary it was while it was happening but it was.”

Most people in relationships don’t tell you what it was really like while it’s happening. That absolutely applies to people who are dating people with substance abuse issues.

“I will continue to pray from the bottom of my heart that he figures it all out.”

She is such a sweetheart.

“And that any other woman in this position does as well.”

She ends her epic shutdown with a simple outline of a heart.

Fan apologizes to Ariana Grande

The person who posted the original tweet wrote up a lengthy response, saying:

“I’m really sorry this is something you took the time to read and that upset you enough to make such a thoughtful reply.”

“I know nothing about your relationship and the heartache you both feel.”

“I in no way think you are the cause of Mac’s shortcomings. We all have our demons to keep at bay, and I truly worry about his well being.”

“I am very sorry I hurt you and I’m sorry you feel my tweet stigmatizes women for ending a toxic relationship. That wasn’t my intention at all.”

It’s safe to say that most people who write about a celeb without actually using their Twitter handle or any tags don’t expect an interaction.

When there is a response, it’s usually in the form of a “like” or perhaps a heart emoji, because most people have positive things to say.

There is no way that this person was expecting Ariana to see their post. They weren’t trying to be cruel, they were just placing blame in the wrong place.

And we think that they learned their lesson.

Ariana is such a strong voice and such an inspiration. She’s the hero that this world needs.
