Sarah Silverman & Kumail Nanjiani Civilly Discuss Controversial 'Rosanne' Revival

Sarah Silverman and Kumail Nanjiani are sharing their opposing opinions on the Roseanne revival, following some controversial tweets from star Roseanne Barr.

The two actors took to their Twitters to express their thoughts in a civil discussion.

While Sarah felt that the show was “of the moment” showcasing real political angst within families, Kumail couldn’t see past Rosanne‘s real-life comments about Parkland student and activist David Hogg.

“watched @RoseanneOnABC last night & loved it. That familiar feeling of the old but w comedy & content so totally of this moment like the angst w/in close families over politics. Hope y’all let go of needing art 2 reflect/express only what u yourself feel. That’s not what art’s 4,” Sarah wrote on her Twitter.

Kumail replied, “Sarah, you know I love you & respect you. I believe who can bring themselves to watch what art is a subjective thing. I can’t bring myself to watch a person who mocks teens whose friends were murdered, who traffics in conspiracy theories that damage our world & reality.”

    yeah, can’t get on board with Silverman. Also, I don’t understand why they have to love one another after every comment. It’s o.k. not to love or like someone and just respect their opinion and move on with life. They sent more love than newlyweds.

    Um, it brings a sense of humor to politics. Trump is still president and yeah, he doesn’t understand what community college is (amazingly stupid man) but maybe people will have a conversation. At least they show a real house. All those upper middle class houses that no one cooks in on television is overkill. I miss All in the Family and Sanford and Son. Come on. A friend of mind was a garbage collector during the summer for extra money and the rest of the year a classical pianist. Meaning, Hollywood is out of touch with people who work hard.

    Um, All in the Family went off the air in 1979 so good luck with that. How about stepping into 2018 with the rest of the world? And for being so down on Hollywood, here you are on a Hollywood blog talking about Hollywood.

    All in the family was one of the greatest shows ever. It was groundbreaking and hilarious.

  • Drew

    ok grampa

  • imnobody

    I’m a woman you moron.

  • Drew

    ok grandma

  • Drew

    Actually, in your own words, you are nobody.

  • Ram

    LOL

    Flo from the Progressive commercials has a networth larger than that. I live in norcal and there’s a house down the street selling for $10 million, something Silverman couldn’t even buy since it’s almost her entire worth. If you think my generation even gives a damn about this old woman who peaked in the early 2000s…you’re out of touch. You’d have a hard time finding anybody 25 and under who cares about this tw*t. Considering we are the most lucrative demo, best believe we decide who is relevant and who is not.

    Thanks for playing, Drew. We got you pressed like juice for stating the obvious on your fav. And hows that review on my financials? you’d be surprised how off you are ;) but whatever makes you feel better today

    i did not read any of that word vomit so you essentially just wasted 45 minutes of ur life writing it.
