Roseanne Barr has been offered an unexpected opportunity by the adult film company XBlaze for their new line of films which will be "cleverly" called XXLBlaze. However, the chances of her accepting the offer seem to be as bleak as ABC re-airing 'Roseanne' with her as the lead actress. 

ABC recently terminated her show 'Roseanne' after she tweeted that former president Barrack Obama's chief advisor, Valerie Jarrett, was the result of "Muslim Brotherhood and the planet of apes." While the former part of the comment was largely ignored, Roseanne later made the excuse of assuming Jarrett to be white and didn't think that she was being racist.

Sue Obeidi, director of the Muslim Public Affairs Council's Hollywood Bureau (MPAC), said, "Muslims in Hollywood, be they producers, screenwriters, directors, or actors, need to work on holding the industry accountable to do the right thing." Meanwhile, Pej Vahdat, an Iranian-born actor too stated the lack of scrutiny over the comment to be "unfortunate".

According to reports, Jake Pentland, Barr's son with her ex-husband Bill Pentland, said that his mother has been adamant about considering Jarrett a result of "Muslim Brotherhood and the planet of apes", while he was texting her. He confirms that Barr would never comment on a black woman and had thought that Jarrett and her father were white people. He mentions that the comment was not meant to be racist, and wishes that somebody would have defended his mother. 

Barr has reportedly been offered $150,000 to appear for the first scene of its BBW line. Jeff Dillon, CEO of XBlaze, has written an open letter to Barr saying that her attitude is what makes her a unique personality which can often get her into trouble in a politically-correct world. He believes that she can certainly pull off the "performance of a lifetime" in the adult industry. 

XBlaze, which is considered to be a "weed-infused adult film studio", might be suitable for Barr who is investing in a medical marijuana dispensary that will open in Santa Ana, California, named Roseanne's Joint. Barr takes pride in being a "cultural pioneer at the forefront of another wave of progress." She claims that the dispensary will be a "responsible, contributing member" of the community, and will offer several mind-expanding delicacies.
