Why Hasn't Roseanne Been Shunned and Ostracized?

This isn't the first time she's spewed homicide-laced vitriol and I doubt if it will be the last:

“Part of my platform is, of course, the guilty must be punished and that we no longer let our children see their guilty leaders getting away with murder. Because it teaches children, you know, that they don’t have to have any morals as long as they have guns and are bullies and I don’t think that’s a good message,” Barr told Russia Today (RT).

“I do say that I am in favor of the return of the guillotine and that is for the worst of the worst of the guilty.

“I first would allow the guilty bankers to pay, you know, the ability to pay back anything over $100 million [of] personal wealth because I believe in a maximum wage of $100 million. And if they are unable to live on that amount of that amount then they should, you know, go to the reeducation camps and if that doesn’t help, then being beheaded,” Barr said with a straight face.
Society at large has allowed her to get away with this for so long that she now refers to these ideas as her "platform". As to her, eh, profession, it's a source of constant amazement that she continues to find work. It indicates that the entertainment industry is rewarding her for her increasingly outrageous and offensive statements, or they're having trouble finding unattractive, middle-aged comics of dubious talent.

Between her and Janeane Garofalo, one has to wonder what they've done to achieve their status; from what I've seen, they should be unemployable and homeless.
