Roseanne Barr is, inexplicably, a right-wing, Trump-supporting douchebag. Let’s just establish that fact.
But her show, Roseanne, is hilarious.
People on the left are freaking out about her pro-Trump views, and about some photo shoot she did for Heeb magazine, where she was dressed as Hitler, pulling Jew-shaped cookies out of an oven.
First, criticizing a Jew for making Holocaust jokes is akin to criticizing a black person for using the N-word. If you’re not in the minority group in question, you’re racist for being outraged by them trying to commandeer the trauma their people went through, trying to minimize its power through that commandeering.
Second, boycotting an entertaining show just because you disagree politically with its star is the kind of shit conservative zealots do, not supposedly reasonable liberals.
Is Roseanne funny and entertaining? (Spoiler: it really is) Then get off your high horse and enjoy the show. America is already too divided. How about we don’t get all wrapped up in an actor’s politics and instead just enjoy the rare sitcom that can still make us laugh?
