The revelation that Barr inspired tonight's episode "invites a slew of reactions," says Kevin Fallon. "There’s the egregiousness of a public figure who has used her platform to promote an agenda directly harmful to the immigrants she is referencing, producing an episode in which a fictional stand-in is absolved of her offensive opinions in a heartwarming episode," he adds. "Then there’s the content of the episode in the first place, and the message it eventually does send. The message could be viewed independently of the actress delivering it. Or maybe for some there is power in that it is Roseanne Barr, of all people, whose mind is changed from bigotry to tolerance."
