    To all those who are saying that Roseanne Barr is “finished” and “will never work in this town again,” do recall that Mel Gibson made a comeback and was nominated for Best Director at the Oscars eleven years after making his infamous anti-Semitic rant.

    This raises two very real (and closely related) questions:

    1) Could Roseanne become the female Mel Gibson? Why or why not?

    2) In the age of Trump, is it possible that Hollywood will be as forgiving towards Roseanne as it was towards Gibson (yes, I know Gibson was nominated for Hacksaw Ridge after Trump’s election, but the nomination was announced just four days after Trump was sworn in)?  Why or why not?

    NOTE: I am NOT defending Roseanne or Gibson in any way. Their comments were inexcusable, and both deserved what they got as consequences. I am only asking these questions because a precedent exists for the possibility of Roseanne making another comeback in the future.

    Mel Gibson is a man. He’s not on twitter. And works primarily behind the scenes these days producing and directing.
