‘Weed-Infused’ Porn Studio Offers Roseanne Barr Contract

Surprisingly enough, this isn’t her first job offer in the adult industry.

Roseanne Barr has been a stalwart of the media over the past week or so for, essentially, all the wrong reasons. The revival of her hit show Roseanne was abruptly canceled after the actress/comedian concocted a racially-charged tweet about former President Barack Obama’s advisor, Valerie Jarrett, calling the ex-cabinet member a cross between a character from the Planet Of The Apes films, and a member of the Muslim Brotherhood.

To make matters worse, Roseanne, during her apology, blamed the popularly prescribed sleep medication Ambien, for her racial outburst.

Surprisingly enough, however, Roseanne has managed to nab another job offer in the midst of her life-altering controversy. However, it’s not necessarily in an industry Roseanne Barr is all-too-familiar with: pornography.

A Not-So-Decent Proposal

According to a report from The Wrap, a recently-launched porn site, XBlaze, has made Barr the target to star in an opening scene for their upcoming BBW line, XXXLBlaze. Apparently, the site is also ready to hand Barr a whopping $150,000 to star in the short scene.

The company’s CEO, Jeff Dillon wrote, even wrote an open letter to Barr, in an attempt to coax the actress into uncharted territory. In the letter, Dillon commended Barr for standing true to her beliefs and never being one to mince words.

“Part of what makes you unique as an actress, entrepreneur, and media personality is your attitude, specific beliefs and openness in saying exactly what you think and feel,” Dillon said. “Sometimes that can get you into trouble, especially in this politically correct world we now live in. While this is not your usual brand of mainstream entertainment, we are certain that someone like you, a superstar still VERY influential in today’s pop culture, can pull off the performance of a lifetime as an adult entertainer in an industry that allows its stars to be themselves.”

The site XBlaze, if you couldn’t tell by its name, is actually supposed to be billed as a sort of hybrid, marijuana-infused porn site. Barr, who has admitted to smoking marijuana in the past, could actually be viewed as a somewhat sensible choice for the young company, considering how much media attention the actress has gotten in the wake of her Ambien-fueled rant. Not to mention the fact that the comedian has said she’d be open to doing porn in the past—perhaps something that Dillon took notice of.

Back in 2013, Barr actually received an offer to enter the adult industry, after she jokingly (we think) said she’d be willing to ditch mainstream show business in favor of starring in, what she called “geriatric porn.” Shortly after, Vivid Entertainment founder Steven Hirsch expressed a desire to work with Barr, but nothing came to fruition.

But perhaps, with her career in limbo, Roseanne could re-think her prospects of working in the adult entertainment industry. Especially, in a weed-infused sector of it.
