Do we really need this 'Roseanne' revival? | The Tylt
"Roseanne" is back on ABC nearly 21 years after the original sitcom concluded, and it's getting mixed reactions because Roseanne Barr has become a polarizing conservative. Opponents cringe over the titular character also being a Trump supporter. Others argue it's a representation of Middle America, and conservatives aren't fairly represented on TV. But some critics argue that while the show is reductive, the series premiered with 18 million viewers. Do we really need this revival? 📺

So many bad takes on the Roseanne reboot. Barr is not working class, she’s a rich actor, a racist, and a violent transphobe who is using her platform to promote her own political agenda. There’s nothing authentic or important about what she’s doing.— rosie knight loves a star war ✨ (@RosieMarx) March 28, 2018
