Actor James Woods, who played Hades in Disney’s animated Hercules movie, questioned if Roseanne Barr will be getting her job back after Disney rehired James Gunn to direct Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3.

Woods wrote on Twitter, “Oh, and is Roseanne back on Roseanne, too? Oh, wait…


Roseanne Barr’s ABC sitcom, Roseanne was cancelled after the actress tweeted, “muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby=vj” referring to President Obama staffer Valerie Jarrett.

ABC Entertainment president Channing Dungey would condemn Roseanne’s tweets, “Roseanne’s Twitter statement is abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values, and we have decided to cancel her show.”

According to the Daily Wire, Roseanne initially defended the tweet by saying she didn’t realize that Jarrett was not white. She would later tweet out that she was referring to anti-semitism in the Planet of the Apes movie written by Rod Serling.

When James Gunn’s pedophilia tweets and blog posts surfaced, Roseanne blasted those defending Gunn saying, “I’m disgusted to read all of the support for James Gunn’s pedophile jokes-as the same people supported blacklisting me for a joke they didn’t even understand.”

Gunn had previously called on Hulu, which is partially owned by Disney, to stop advertising on Fox News’ Laura Ingraham show. He even encouraged his followers to campaign for Hulu to stop advertising on her show.

He also insinuated that Roseanne was racist after she indicated she had been using Ambien when she made her tweet about Valerie Jarrett.

Woods wasn’t alone in questioning if Disney would also rehire Roseanne.

Do you think Disney should rehire Roseanne after they rehired James Gunn? Do you think if Disney doesn’t rehire Roseanne, they are setting a dangerous double standard?
