Joseph Casieri | Fact Check Reporter

A post shared on social media purports that comedians Tim Allen and Roseanne Barr are starting a “non-woke” actors guild.

Verdict: False

The claim is inaccurate. The claim stems from a satirical website.

Fact Check:

Barr recently made headlines from telling students to drop out of college during a speech at a fundraiser for Senate candidate Kari Lake at former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort, Newsweek reported. Lake is running for Arizona Senate seat currently held by Krysten Sinema after she announced she would not seek reelection.

A post shared on Facebook claimed Allen and Barr are working on a new program. The post shared a photo of each of the comedians with an alleged headline underneath.

The alleged headline reads, “Breaking: Roseanne Barr and Tim Allen Join Create New Non-Woke Actors Guild.”

The claim is inaccurate. The claim stems from a satirical website called Esspots. The website self identifies as satire. The disclaimer reads, “A Subsidiary of SpaceXMania.com specializing in Satire and Parody News”

Esspots Facebook account made the original post. The account also clearly claims to be satire saying, “We post SATIRE, nothing on this page is real.”

Furthermore, There is no such announcement on Allen’s X account or any of Barr’s social media accounts. (RELATED: Does Video Show Explosion At Francis Scott Key Bridge?)
