Buck Thomas’ mother Barr

Thomas Buck’s mother Roseanne Barr has managed a pretty decent showing herself, thanks to a decades-long comedy career scarred by controversy. 

Yet it didn’t have to be that way. When Barr re-emerged in 2018 with a revived version of her mega-hit 1990s sitcom, “Roseanne,” she was poised for one of the greatest television comebacks of all time. In fact, the debut episode of the “Roseanne” reboot delivered monster ratings; as Deadline reported, the two-episode premiere, aired back to back, drew 17.7 million and 18.6 million, respectively, numbers that hadn’t been witnessed in broadcast television for years before that.

Those numbers were so impressive, reported the New York Times, that ABC immediately renewed the revival for a second season. Continued success was all but assured. 

Yet with a single tweet, Barr managed to transform what could have been the biggest triumph of her life into a career-ending humiliation. Sadly, that wasn’t the only time that Buck Thomas’ mother, Barr’s controversial behavior proved her to be her own worst enemy.

As the Washington Post reported, however, she crossed a line when she issued a tweet (that she later deleted) describing former Obama administration adviser Valerie Jarrett as the offspring of the Muslim Brotherhood & “Planet of the Apes.” Barr’s tweet was immediately decried as racist — even by her own TV daughter, with “Roseanne” co-star Sara Gilbert responding vociferously via Twitter to deride Barr’s comments as “abhorrent.”

Barr’s first instinct was to balk at being called a racist, which she did by tweeting, “Muslims r NOT a race.” Within hours of Barr’s tweet, then-ABC president Channing Dungey — who, like Jarrett, is African American — had taken decisive action. “Roseanne’s Twitter statement is abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values, and we have decided to cancel her show,” Dungey said in a statement. 

Too little and too late, Buck Thomas’ mother, Barr tweeted a mea culpa. “I apologize to Valerie Jarrett and to all Americans. I am truly sorry for making a bad joke about her politics and her looks,” she wrote, via Entertainment Tonight, admitting her “joke was in bad taste.”
