Roseanne Is The Queen Of Controversy, “Barr None”
With the headlines covering every detail and new development in the Bill Cosby sexual assault scandal, someone got jealous that they weren’t getting any attention. Roseanne Barr decided to use Cosby’s high-profile case, as new comedy material, only to find out she’s not very funny.
How Low Will Celebrities Stoop For Attention? Ask Roseanne.
There are washed-out celebrities that will do just about anything to stir-up a bit of controversy for some quality tabloid space, and then there is Roseanne Barr, who will literally do anything for the spotlight — including looking for laughs at the expense of 20 rape victims. If there is anything more pathetic than using her celebrity reach to mock rape victims, it’s following-up with a punchline recommendation for the alleged rapist, which suggests exploiting Palestinian persecution to get the press to forget about the rape charges.
Barr’s new low began on her Twitter, when she tweeted a photo of her battered-looking face, with the added caption
“Got in a tussle w bill cosby. U shoyld see that mfer.”
Roseanne’s PR Advice For Bill Cosby
A Twitter storm backlash forced her to take down the tweet a few minutes later.
“it might be time for #billCosby to condemn the state of Israel so he can get back into the good graces of Hollywood!”
Hollywood’s Manufactured Anti-Arab Stereotype
Contrary to the widely accepted, pro-Israeli influence in Hollywood, Roseanne is part of a small pool of thought, which believe in the conspiracy that Hollywood studio heads and producers are anti-Israel, regardless of Hollywood’s historic anti-Arab sentiment.
Israeli Film producers Menachem Golan and Yoram Globus bought the American film company Cannon Films in the 1980s and produced a string of 26 virulent anti-Arab films, including Hell Squad (1985), Invasion USA (1985), The Delta Force (1986), Delta Force II (1990), and Killing Streets (1991). These films pioneered the stereotype of Arab terrorists in action films and most of the Arabs were played as broad caricatures by Israeli actors.
Here’s some food for thought: Israel recently announced that there is no freedom of speech for Palestinians when it comes to criticizing Israeli policy. In fact, the Israeli government made it public that they will arrest activists for posting content deemed to be “anti-Israel.”
Leave it to Rosanne to mock rape victims, and provide the alleged sex-offender with suggestions to improve PR, which exploits the suffering of millions of persecuted Palestinians.
