Jerry Seinfeld: Roseanne Shouldn’t Have Been Fired

Jerry Seinfeld has some thoughts about “Roseanne” and its former leading lady Roseanne Barr. 

“I didn’t see why it was necessary to fire her,” Seinfeld told “Entertainment Tonight.” “Why would you murder someone who’s committing suicide?”

He added, “Yeah, that had to be. But I never saw someone ruin their entire career with one button push. That was fresh.”

ABC canceled the megahit revival after Barr tweeted a series of racist and anti-Semitic posts, including one about former Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett. The network has since announced a spinoff — without Barr — titled “The Conners,” which will debut in the fall in the place of the “Roseanne” reboot.

Seinfeld, however, doesn’t think ABC should’ve written Barr’s character off the show.

“I think they should get another Roseanne,” Seinfeld said. “They brought [John Goodman’s character] Dan Conner back, he was dead and they brought him back. So, why can’t we get another Roseanne? There’s other funny women that could do that part. You need to get the comic in there. I hate to see a comic lose a job.”
