More from the Hollywood Reporter:
Jerry Seinfeld is weighing in on the Roseanne Barr controversy, calling her being fired from her eponymous sitcom “overkill.”
“I don’t even know why they had to do that,” Seinfeld told USA Today Monday at an event to promote his Netflix series, Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee. “It seemed like, you don’t need to murder someone that’s committing suicide. I thought the firing was overkill. She’s already dead.”
Though questioning the firing, after Barr made a racist tweet about Valerie Jarrett, a senior adviser to former President Barack Obama, the comedian was in awe of how quickly Barr’s career was destroyed. “I never saw someone ruin their entire career with one button push. That was fresh,” he explained in another interview with Entertainment Tonight.
Oh oh. Run Jerry. https://t.co/d55DIZKvPQ

No one cares what Seinfeld thinks,he had a racist on his show,remember Kramer(Michel Richards)? Remember his incident?So what he has to say means nothing.

I feel like Seinfield is a closet racist like he has always given me that vibe.

Jerry Seinfeld just wants his friends to be able to make horrible jokes about black people in peace.
