“View” host Whoopi Goldberg has lashed out at Roseanne Barr for the parts of an image, a Photoshopped image of Goldberg on Twitter.
After the news of her TV-show, cancellation, Barr decided to be a part of her feelings by retweeting others who supported her.
In doing this, Barr took aim at Goldberg by the retweet of a Photoshopped image of the host at the 2017 women March wearing a shirt with the text “Make America Great Again” with a graphic, bloody image of President Trump is holding a gun to his head.
A Twitter user shared since deleted the tweet and wrote: “Out of curiosity, @ABC & @Disney this okay with you? Hypocrisy on the Left is nauseating.”
The real message in goldberg’s ladies March shirt read, “And you thought I was a nasty woman? Buckle up, buttercup.”
The 62-year-old host talked about the Photoshopped tweet on Wednesday episode of her show.
“In her Twitter rant after the cancellation, [Barr] also retweeted a wrong image of me. So here we go again. Here is the truth about the shirt that I wore on the Women’s March in New York,” she explained. “Now a number of bonehead Photoshopped a horrific image on the shirt. And they retweeted.”
The award-winning actress then directly addressed Barr and said, “So this is what I’m going to say, Roseanne. Just because you caught with your pants down, don’t try to drag other people with you. Do you understand? Don’t do that … The bottom line is simply this: I didn’t fake my shirt, someone else did my shirt. But that is your tweet. That tweet came from you. So that is yours. You did this to yourself.”
