In response to Barr’s comments, numerous individuals and organizations have expressed their outrage and called for accountability.

Comedian Roseanne Barr’s statement on a podcast that no Jews died in the Holocaust has created a social media storm.

During the June 14 episode of This Past Weekend, a podcast hosted by fellow comedian Theo Von, the Jewish Barr delved into the topic of the 2020 election and the concept of “truth” in the United States.

“Nobody wants to hear the real truth,” began Barr, before adding that social media guidelines have “mandated” what the truth is or isn’t.

“And don’t you dare say anything, that’s where you’ll be off YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, and all the other ones,” she continued. “There’s such a thing as the truth and facts and we have to stick to it.”

Then, apparently, to emphasize the point, she said, “Nobody died in the Holocaust. That’s the truth. It should happen. Six million Jews should die right now cause they cause all the problems in the world. But it never happened. But it never happened – Mandated.” These remarks were both shocking and deeply troubling.

Barr later revealed that she herself identifies as Jewish, which adds an even more perplexing dimension to her controversial statements. The actress started her career in stand-up comedy before gaining recognition for her work on the television sitcom Roseanne in the 1980s and the 1990s. She won an Emmy and a Golden Globe Award for Best Actress for her work on the show.

Barr’s comments spark uproar

Barr, who claimed she was fired from ABC’s Roseanne reboot in 2018 for voting for former president Donald Trump, used the election results as an example of the “mandated truth” when talking with Von.
