The women of “The View” praised parent company ABC for canceling “Roseanne” Wednesday morning, while taking aim at the axed actress for spreading fake news about them overnight on Twitter.
After her show was given the boot, Barr returned to social media on Tuesday night, where she began liking and retweeting fans expressing outrage over the news. Amid the Twitter spree, she shared a doctored photo of Whoopi Goldberg — as well as a Photoshopped tweet from Joy Behar– as her followers cried “hypocrisy” over her firing.
Though Roseanne has since deleted the retweets, journalist Yashar Ali came through with the receipts.

After saying she thought it was “amazing” that ABC canceled her show, Whoopi addressed Roseanne directly. “She also retweeted a false picture of me. Now some bonehead Photoshopped a horrific image on the shirt and she retweeted this,” she said. “This is what I’m going to say, Roseanne. Just because you were caught with your pants down, don’t try and drag other people down with you. Don’t do that. There are times when, yeah, you gotta suck it up because you stepped in do.”
Meghan McCain added, “This is about you being a racist,” then pointed at Goldberg and Behar to clarify, “Dragging you and you into this, you didn’t do anything wrong.”
“The bottom line is simply this: I didn’t fake my shirt, someone else faked my shirt. But that’s your tweet. That tweet came from you,” said Whoopi. “That’s yours. You did this to yourself.”
While Behar has defended controversial jokes from comedians in the past, she said this comment was indefensible. “I always defend comedians, pretty much, because we’re under the gun a lot, we’re trying to get a laugh mostly. We stick our foot in our mouths a lot, I’ve done it many times, I’ve had to apologize many times,” she explained. “But I just felt like this went over the line and when you talk about racism, this is really a bad thing. This is an egregious offense. Even though I still say we all make mistakes, mea culpa, it went over the line so I can’t defend it.”
Sunny Hostin also applauded ABC for its decision. “She has a history of tweeting things that are inappropriate,” she said. “I think when you cross that kind of societal norm, you must pay the consequence. Firing her was the right thing to do, I’m thrilled ABC did it.” Hostin added she was “saddened” the show’s cast and crew had to suffer because of Roseanne’s actions.
