Although the Roseanne reboot is well underway, many are hoping to get the project canceled before it even airs.
As press for the upcoming Roseanne reboot has officially started, the hashtag #BoycottRoseanne has popped up on Twitter to expose Barr for her seemingly bigoted tendencies. In fact, last week, an account dedicated to canceling the beloved comedy shared some pretty damning receipts on Twitter.
The Boycott Roseanne account shared:
Tweets can be deleted by the internet never forgets.
Roseanne has a long history of racism, homophobia, antisemitism and hate speech.
Well, well. It didn’t take long for others to jump on this anti-Roseanne bandwagon, as they added:
I joined Twitter in 2016 and, as of 10 days ago, had just 150 followers. Then I tweeted I wouldn’t watch Roseanne Barr’s new show. She reported me for harassment and sicced her fans on me. Today, I hit 700 followers. Thanks for the boost, Roseanne!
#RoseanneBarr called me a Nazi & blocked me for supporting the indigenous people of Palestine and calling for an end to Israeli apartheid & military occupation. #BoycottRoseannepic.twitter.com/UuOaDn80Sz

Roseanne once called me a racist on Twitter because I support Palestinians & questioned her stance on Zionism (bizarre logic, I know). Now she claims #Roseanne reboot will represent “American working class people.” Count this American out.

#Roseanne has been spouting hateful messages and pro-Trump propaganda for a long time, even though she is now apparently deleting her old tweets. I won’t forget though, and I won’t be watching her new show #BoycottRoseannepic.twitter.com/SVLpFx7Mcn

Eek. What do YOU think??? Will Roseanne’s troubling Twitter content stop you from watching the revival??
