Why Jerry Seinfeld Doesn’t Think It Was Necessary To Fire Roseanne Barr

Jerry Seinfeld has weighed in on the fallout Roseanne Barr has received after she posted a racist tweet, leading ABC to cancel her hit sitcom, and instead, greenlight a spinoff series, titled The Conners, which won’t include her. ET spoke to Seinfeld on Monday about a new season of his show, Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, coming to Netflix, and also got his candid thoughts on the controversy surrounding Barr’s remarks. “I didn’t see why it was necessary to fire her,” Seinfeld said. “Why would you murder someone who’s committing suicide?” “But I never saw someone ruin their entire career with one button push,” he added. “That was fresh.” Seinfeld also said he thought another female comedian should get a chance to play Barr’s part. “I think they should get another Roseanne,” he advised. “They brought 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.”
