I always liked her standup but could never stomach her show. That "said", she was unfairly treated. I didn't follow it, but I hope she sued and won.
Roseanne Barr has a new comedy show coming out on the FOX News streaming service FOX Nation this Monday, and she sat for an interview with Tucker Carlson to discuss it.
Barr recalled how she was cancelled and said that the left has no sense of humor, especially about themselves.
She says that she was not even allowed to apologize and was just blackballed. She decried cancel culture, calling it fascist.

Roseanne’s comments here mirror what she said in a recent interview with the LA Times.
The Hollywood Reporter has the story:
Roseanne Barr Accuses Hollywood of Double Standard: “I’m the Only Person Who Lost Everything”
Roseanne Barr lashed out at Hollywood in a new interview, suggesting she’s been held to a cancel culture double standard.
In an interview with the Los Angeles Times released Thursday, the comedian slammed ABC for firing her in 2018 from her top-rated sitcom Roseanne (which was subsequently rebranded The Conners), and compared her treatment to that of two other popular transgressive comics, Dave Chappelle and Louis C.K.
“They didn’t do it to anyone else in Hollywood, although they always [mention] Dave Chappelle and Louis C.K.,” she told The Los Angeles Times. “Well, Louis C.K. did lose everything, but he committed an actual [offense]. And Dave Chappelle was protected by Netflix. I’m the only person who’s lost everything, whose life’s work was stolen, stolen by people who I thought loved me. And there was silence. There was no one in Hollywood really defending me publicly, except for Mo’nique, who is a brave, close, dear friend.”…
“It was a witch-burning,” she adds. “They denied me the right to apologize. Oh my God, they just hated me so badly. I had never known that they hated me like that. They hate me because I have talent, because I have an opinion.
Roseanne’s comedy special debuts on Monday, February 13th.
