If you thought Roseanne Barr was done fighting with ABC, think again.
Barr first blamed Ambien for her racist tweet and subsequent firing from ABC’s The Conners last year, but now the scandalized actress is going after Michelle Obama and former ABC programming chief Channing Dungey for her current unemployment status.
The former Conners actress recently recapped her ABC firing with The Times of London and said, “(Obama) said, ‘This tweet is unforgivable.’ That’s what I was told and I tend to believe it because the woman who fired me is now working with the Obamas at Netflix.”
“The woman” she’s referring to is Dungey, who left ABC in December signed on to work with Netflix as its VP of Original Content.
According to USA Today, Barr also used her Britain interview to go after the women of the #MeToo movement.
"If you didn’t say no, just stayed there to get along, you’re a (hooker)," she said. "Men are (hooker) too. There’s a total ho mentality. What am I going to get for trading sexual favors? Not that I’ve got anything against (hookers). Not real (hookers).”
