“Hey @iamwandasykes why is it okay for @JoeBiden to say something clearly racist but @therealroseanne gets kicked off of her own show that YOU are a writer on, for making a mistake?” Baio tweeted. “Is it because you’re a full of s–t, hack liberal?”
He was responding to a tweet Sykes sent the same day defending Biden, who said that anyone who would vote for President Trump “ain’t black.”
“Biden feels at home speaking to the Black community. He made a joke. Comedy ain’t easy, but he didn’t say 2 go shoot Clorox in our tits,” Sykes wrote.
“Now, I wouldn’t make a blanket statement to say that voting for Trump means you’re not Black. I would say that it means you’re not smart.”
Sykes, who worked as a consulting producer on the reboot of “Roseanne,” issued her pithy response to Baio on Wednesday.
“Oh! Hey Chachi. Apologies, I didn’t see you. I’ll keep it short. Joe Biden didn’t say, ‘Then you ain’t an ape,’” she wrote. “Well, let me get back to work…I hope you enjoy whatever it is that you do.”
Sykes quit the show the same day Barr’s tweets went viral.
Biden later apologized for his remarks, saying he “should not have been so cavalier.”
