Iconic television actress Roseanne Barr unloaded on a political reporter this weekend; slamming the journalist after he accused ABC staffers of feeling “uncomfortable” with her show’s “racist working-class family.”
The actress was fuming after a recent article published in Elle Magazine viciously attacked her smash-hit for “ignoring” the “very real racism” seen throughout the nation.
“@ELLEmagazine has my take on the Roseanne reboot: The New Roseanne Ignores The Very Real Racism of Many White Working-Class Families,” tweeted the reporter.
“In the wake of my Roseanne article I’ve been contacted by multiple people at ABC who’ve told me there’s a real discomfort among many of the employees with the propagandist nature of the reboot and a feeling that the project is meant to monetize Trump’s base,” he added.

Roseanne immediately fired-back, blasting the reporter’s baseless allegations and asking which specific episode made ABC staffers “uncomfortable.”
“oh, really? which episode r they uncomfortable about? the one where we get a dog or my mom gets a boyfriend or I drive for uber or darlene gets a new job or david comes back? which ones monetize trump’s base?” she tweeted.

ROSEANNE UNCHAINED: The Actress Says Her Character is a Proud, WORKING CLASS Trump Supporter
Actress Roseanne Barr is doubling-down on her iconic character’s sharp wit and working-class roots as the show prepares for its official reboot later this month; saying the program will focus on American issues and why President Trump won the 2016 race for the White House.
The comedian was speaking with the New York Time when she was asked to comment on the impact President Trump’s election had on her character and herself, saying she wanted to focus on “How we deal with whole new issues that we didn’t even have before, like gender-fluid kids. How working class people — how and why they elected Trump.”
“I just wanted to have that dialogue about families torn apart by the election and their political differences of opinion and how we handle it. I thought that this was an important thing to say at this time,” she added.
“In terms of what they think, and how they feel when they are the ones who send their kids over to fight. We’ve been in wars for a long, long time, which everybody seems to forget — but working class people don’t forget it because their kids are in it,” said Roseanne.
