Right Wing Media Defends Roseanne After Her Racist Tweet

Roseanne Barr lost her TV show and her talent agency representation after making a racist tweet about former Obama staffer Valerie Jarrett (VJ).

However, Fox News “Outnumbered Overtime” host Harris Faulkner did not want to call Barr’s tweet “racist”:

I don’t understand it to be anything other than free speech. It is extremely offensive but it is just that. She says in one of her tweets, there were three rapid-fire today… It was a joke. It was a miscalculated joke.

GOP strategist Noelle Nikpour also refused to call it “racist”:

She is a comedian. She does have a very wicked, twisted sense of humor. Everybody knows her to be a little raunchy and a little rough.

Other right wing media figures, including Fox News radio host Todd Starnes, came to Barr’s defense, notes Right Wing Watch:
