Whoopi Goldberg Checks Roseanne Barr For Dragging Her Into Her Racist Twitter Drama

Whoopi Goldberg Checks Roseanne Barr For Dragging Her Into Her Racist Twitter Drama

She wanted to make one thing clear.

Published May 31, 2018

Roseanne Barr's recent career-damaging racist debacle saw her make several false allegations against a slew of celebrities through doctored tweets and photos.

One of her victims, The View co-host Whoopi Goldberg, caught wind of her actions and took the time during the morning talk show to check her one good time.

Roseanne's eponymous ABC sitcom was canceled on Tuesday following her racist attack on Valerie Jarrett, in which she compared the esteemed former Barack Obama adviser to an "ape" in a now-deleted tweet.

While, since then, the actress vowed to leave Twitter, especially following the outrage expressed by users, she actually remained to retweet a series of comments and photos about some of her critics, one of them being Goldberg.

In fact, she specifically retweeted a fake photo of the EGOT winner "wearing" a "Make America Great Again" shirt, completed with a violent image of Donald Trump.

Take a look, below:

Barr, later on, removed the retweet and clarified that it was "fake."

However, Goldberg rightfully took the time during Wednesday's hour of The View to address the image that was spread to assassinate her character.

"In her Twitter rant following the cancellation, she also retweeted a false picture of me — so here we go again," she said. "Here is the truth about that shirt I was wearing at the Women's March in New York. It very clearly says, 'And you thought I was a nasty woman before? Buckle up, Buttercup.' Now, some bonehead photoshopped a horrific image on the shirt and she retweeted this."

Directly addressing the now fallen actress, she added, "Roseanne: Just because you were caught with your pants down, don't try to drag other people down with you. Don't do that. There are times when you got to suck it up because you step in doo... You did this to yourself."
