'Roseanne' Actress Emma Kenney Reacts to Roseanne Barr's Racist Tweet

Emma Rose Kenney is speaking out about Roseanne Barr‘s racist tweet, and is praising ABC for the cancellation of the show.

If you don’t know, the 18-year-old actress played Harris Conner-Healy in the reboot.

Earlier today, Roseanne was cancelled and Sara Gilbert, Emma‘s co-star, also issued a reaction to Roseanne‘s words.

Emma took to Twitter to slam Roseanne‘s tweet.

“I am hurt, embarrassed, and disappointed. The racist and distasteful comments from Roseanne are inexcusable,” Emma posted. “As I called my manager to quit working on Roseanne, I found out the show got cancelled. I feel so empowered by @iamwandasykes , Channing Dungey and those at ABC standing up against abuse of power and lack of values. Bullies do not win. Ever.”

    I hope the big one hits California while I’m still alive. I will not donate a single penny to help victims, but I’ll happily volunteer my shovel and time to bury the dead with a smile on my face.

    silly b*tch. Jump on that SJW bandwagon as fast as you can miss nobody.

  • janice kraczon

    Never heard of her before this season or Roseanne. Will probably never hear of her again.

  • guest

    Um, sure you were. She got skewered on twitter when she posted her “outrage” and people called for her to prove it. Then the show was cancelled just as she was conveniently about to quit. Hollywood kills me with their fake liberal outrage. Bet most of them could care less and say much worse than Roseanne when they are home at night with no cameras on them.

    It shouldn’t matter what her own personal struggles are, not everyone is on board with poor tasteless racist remarks…celebrity is not an excuse or reason for anyone to behave that way. If you’re going to be a racist at least have the dignity to do it behind closed doors and not encourage other to behave in as poor taste as you do.

  • Meriale Merson

    WTF… does that have to do with Rosanne Barr’s tactless and distasteful racial comment? Nothing…

  • Meriale Merson

    The point here is… they do it behind closed door and not tweet it out for the whole world to read. Say what you want about this young lady but at least she has dignity.

  • cuzjcacjo

    but she’s saying she was planning to quit the show, making it look as though that’s the reason. the reason was that she’s a drug addict and was in rehab and she was gonna be forced to quit.. they had already limited her part and she wasn’t in a few episodes. so she can be against roseanne, but she shouldn’t make it seem that was the reason for her planning to quit. she was being written out, lol

  • guest

    Oh I see. So as long as you do it behind closed doors It’s okay? She doesn’t have dignity, she was getting her butt kicked all over twitter. I guess that’s the way to go these days though. Say your true thoughts in private, then get on twitter and act like you are a saint. Whatever.

  • Meriale Merson

    Excuse me, I don’t respond to cowards that hide behind a facade so they can push their pointless agendas. Your point and opinions are invalid like your account status.

  • Meriale Merson

    Where in the hell do you people come up with this crap. Using this as an excuse for being a racist is lame. She had just started the new series, and her Drug addiction days are long behind her even though the effects of the damage are apparently visible. She wasn’t being written out of her own show (named ROSEANNE) don’t be foolish. She was fired for being a all out racist… her Produce Wanda Sykes and the head of ABC Production are both Black. That’s why she was canned. For no other reason than that. If she’s still filming at all it is to write her out and salvage what’s left of the jobs she senselessly and thoughtlessly destroyed

  • guest

    LOL!! Except you DID respond. If you are using your real name, then you are a colossal dumba$$. Have a nice day, Meriale!

  • cuzjcacjo
