Roseanne Producer Wants You To Forget About That Outrageous Hitler Photoshoot The Star Did In 2009

Filed under: TV NewsRoseanneTwitterControversy

no title

The producer of Roseanne wants you to watch the ABC revival and judge it on its merits — not the wacky shit its series star has done over the years.

Shit like that controversial 2009 photoshoot, which showed the actress taking out freshly baked people-shaped cookies from the oven, dressed like Hitler.

The photos, which resurfaced on social media following last week's highly rated premiere of Roseanne Barr's rebooted sitcom, are reportedly from the "Germany issue" of Heeb magazine — a satirical Jewish publication that ran between 2001 and 2010.

The concept was apparently Barr's idea. She defended the shoot in 2011, claiming the cookies were supposed to be an allegory for how common and "every day" holocausts have become since WWII. Too scorched by the imagery to search for a deeper meaning, however, 2018 Twitter responders took the photos at face value: Roseanne dressed as Hitler baking jew cookies.

Now with some calling for a boycott of ABC, the sitcom's co-showrunner Bruce Helford is coming to the star's defense. While Helford insisted there was probably a reason behind the controversial shoot, he wasn't sure what it was and suggested that fans just ignore it, telling The Hollywood Reporter:

U.S. President and TV ratings guru Donald Trump paid a personal call to Roseanne Barr to congratulate her on the success of the Roseanne revival.

Despite many refusing to watch the sitcom because the title character supports Trump (much like the actress who plays her), the premiere episode exceeded expectations by raking in a whopping 18.2 million viewers!

And because we all know Trump loves two things — ‘yuge TV ratings and ‘yuge TV ratings because of him — it doesn't come as a shock that POTUS personally congratulated the comedienne on her network TV success.

In an interview with GMA on Thursday, the actress said receiving a call from Trump was "pretty exciting," noting the conversation was mostly about television and the "huge" ratings. She dished:

OMG! A Roseanne Revival Is In The Works With The Original Cast Members!

Filed under: TV NewsRoseanneGIFsNostalgiaNetflix

Roseanne is back!

Okay, we're dead!

Roseanne is heading toward Revival Town and we're ecstatic!

Related: This Roseanne Reunion Will Give You The Feels

It's being reported an eight-episode limited series revival of the hit comedy is totally happening, and cast members Roseanne Barr, John Goodman, and Sara Gilbert are going to be back!

Other cast members like Laurie Metcalf and Johnny Galecki are currently in talks, but will most likely be returning as well! Meanwhile, several networks, including ABC (where the series originally aired for nine seasons) and Netflix, are currently bidding for the rights to the project.

Can you believe it???

It's been 20 years (!!!) since the blue-collar family comedy's finale aired. The show was hailed as one of the most honest and relevant portrayals of working class families ever. And it's primed for a comeback during a time when many working class people feel underrepresented in the media.

Will YOU be watching???

Also in attendance was Parks and Recreation creator Michael Schur and costar Rashida Jones, who both had a little something to say about the ceremony's honoree!

The writer and producer wanted to congratulate the 44-year-old for being the 2,566th best actress in America, while the brunette babe insisted that she was simply filling in for Johnny Depp – who she joked was actually supposed to speak — and began to read a "letter" the actor had written for the event.

When the Sisters lead finally took the podium, she stole the show, naturally! She said:
