The 65-year-old actor and comedian Roseanne Barr was spotted outside her house in Utah while trying to get rid of a nosey news van parked in her street.

Barr is trying her best to stay out of the spotlight while the dust settles. Last week, she tweeted that Valeria Jarrett, a former Obama aide, is the offspring of the Muslim Brotherhood and Planet of the Apes. 

She has since deleted her tweet and issued an apology to Jarrett, but her hateful comments sparked an outrage which resulted in ABC Entertainment canceling her eponymous show. 

Her co-stars have since spoken out about the incident, with executive producer Sara Gilbert saying she was disappointed to 'say the least.' Gilbert also portrays the role of Darlene on Roseanne.

Michael Fishman, who was cast as Roseanne's son, also released a statement on Twitter in which he 'vehemently disagrees' with Barr's tweets. 

As reported by Daily Mail, 32-year-old comedian Michelle Wolf criticized ABC for allowing Barr's show to be aired in the first place. Wolf shared her thoughts on her Netflix show, The Break. 

Wolf also addressed Jack Posobiec's tweet of May 29th. Posobiec recalls a time when Bill Maher compared President Trump to the offspring of an orangutan but still kept his job. 

He claims that there is a double standard to the way Barr was treated, compared to how other comedians are treated for their jokes. Wolf agreed that it is a double standard and offered a solution.

 "Let's even the playing field. How about we enslave all white people for a couple hundred years and even after they're not slaves anymore, still hold them down in society, devalue their existence by comparing them to animals, never apologize, never really make it right."

Michelle Wolf, Twitter / The Break, June 2, 2018.

She left her viewers with a final thought: "Don't compare black people to apes," and added that people should also not compare Trump to an ape, "because that's rude to apes."

According to Daily Mail, ABC might release a spin-off show featuring the characters from Roseanne. To stay up to date with the latest developments, follow our Twitter account, @amomama_usa
