Roseanne has been canceled following controversial tweet.
She's an idiot for saying that when she's working for Disney. Disney owns ABC
People need to quit being so soft. One person on a show said something stupid. She apologized. Move on. Don’t cancel the show. If Trump can say the things has a still become president, a comedian should get to keep a TV show.
There are actually people on this thread trying to say that what Rosanne tweeted was not racist.🙄 Pardon me while I roll my eyes. Sigh:
Watch yourself! You’ll be rolling so far back they’ll pop out! 😛
I’m amazed they haven’t yet. They’ll roll all the way back to the pre-Civil Rights era, or the time of slavery. SOH sometimes makes me worry about humanity.
Mine rolled all the way back to the Jurassic era 😛
Look how long it took Paula Deen to bounce back. She's toast.
What was funny was one of the stores near me put all of her cookware on clearance when that stuff came out. Someone else asked a salesperson about that and they said it was a coincidence. They still sell it
They were looking for an excuse.
You think? Why sign it on to begin with? It was controversial at the beginning. I think she wanted out of her contract.
Why was the show controversial? You had one episode about Trump and the deplorables and that’s it. The rest of the weeks dealt with unemployment, kids living at home, elder care, pain pills - all real people problems.
It was billed that way. The whole show was based around being a “conservative” show to counter all others except it really wasn’t. So when I say controversial, it should have never made it to air if this was a liberal hit job to take it out. Roseanne said a dumb thing and the network acted in what they perceived was their best interest and that was their bottom line.
And yet same network didn’t fire Jimmy Kimmel when he was in blackface or insulted Melania or Joy Behar for saying Catholics have mental issues (Mike Pence too).
It’s only controversial when a conservative says something.
I’m not defending her but there is a pattern here.
I understand that but she’s not even really a conservative. She’s more libertarian. And all of these situations should be treated the same way. Kathy griffin was run out of town. I don’t know that destroying careers is always the right move. I don’t know the answer but we’ve become so polarized that I don’t think anyone can see straight at this point.
And to be fair, the instances you noted were most likely approved from up top before it even got the green light below. Roseanne acted of her own accord on Twitter, unfiltered.
She posted a racist tweet and got a lot of people fired. You would think using monkeys to describe a black person would never happen. Twitter has been the downfall of many. Ego and stupidity drives a tweet.
It was a stupid tweet, she apologized, and still got her show cancelled by ABC. It’s a private organization, they can fire her.
I’m against ABC cancelling the show for the sole reason that all the cast members got punished for a couple tweets by someone else.
ABC had every right to fire her and her tweet was awful, although I hate Valerie Jarrett. I feel sorry for all the people now out of a job.
Twitter is a dangerous place. I don’t even have a Twitter Page because it’s just a cesspool.
Who owns ABC?
How no one saw this coming is beyond me. Roseann Barr is a fucking nutjob.
It’s almost like she did it on purpose.
MS-13 gets a pass
Iran gets a pass
Hamas gets a pass
Obama's migrant cells get a pass
Joy Reid gets a pass
Joy Behar gets a pass
Jimmy Kimmel gets a pass
Stephen Colbert gets a pass
George Soros gets a pass
What did Jimmy Kimmel do??
Ug, shall i point out how messed up identity politics is and how if you use it logic goes out the window?
Oh and remember the rodeo clown (few years ago) who would wear a presidential mask at every rodeo every year- was fired when he wore Obama mask.
LOL how does ms13 get a pass?
They are soft kittens. Good people. Human beings.
Who says they're good people exactly?
I really dont think there are many, i kinda see it as the left and the right mis-communicating.
People keep trying to solve big problems the easy way without investing time in figuring out the issue.
When the ms-13 convo came up last time the right had said 'deport them' which is verifiable wrong. Alone with the left who were off on a tangent and just started screening racism.
People have to take into account that a minority of ms13 members are citizens. Deportation isnt an option.
They need to cancel racist Kimmel also.
And sexist pig.
She’s an idiot for saying that. Surely she knew she would get fired
I hate to get all flat earth here but...was this intentional maybe?
Doubtful. But you never know. Maybe she regretted getting back into the business.
I’ve never been a Roseanne fan. She had a hit show but just couldn’t control that mouth. I’m not surprised. ABC has to take a stand to protect their bottom line.
I’m wondering if another network will pick it up. It’s been the number one show almost since it came back.
I can’t imagine any network would risk losing money for this show.
Maybe after some time passes but not in the near future. They want hit shows not negative press.
“...if the Muslim brroherhood and planet of the apes had a baby”
Personally, I think that’s pretty funny, but she should’ve known better to say it. I agree with others that I feel bad for her cast and others working on her show. When you work with a team you need to think about them when you’re about to do something stupid.
I think she got to be too big for her britches and thought she was beyond reproach.
Maybe, but she’s always been like that. This was the same chick who dressed up as hitler and put gingerbread men in an oven.
True. Perhaps she’s just nutty.
I find it funny that Roseanne Barr of all people thought that making fun of someone else in such a manner was a great idea. I could come up with any number of derogatory tweets about her. What a moron.🙄
I debated this with my husband. Why would you possibly think this tweet wouldn’t a- get reaction (she knew it would) and b- think it would be glossed over by the network in this day and age?
She’s always been the biggest threat to her own career and those around her.
I’m imagining that her cast mates have put the kibosh on her.
Some have. We haven’t heard from everyone.
Sara Gilbert slapped her ass on twitter and she was fired her agency.
This user is currently being ignored
Never watched her show, but it was pretty irresponsible of her to cost people their jobs by her own stupidity.
Good. I never liked the show to begin with. And I always support a company’s right to do whatever they think it’s best for their business.
Damn, I really liked the show. Didn’t even watch it years ago. Why’d she have to do something so stupid? It had been renewed for another season already. I bet viewers will have something to say about it though. Stay tuned...
Me too. I liked the show, but I don’t know if what Roseann said can be forgiven and forgotten any time soon.
That's a lot of people out of a job because of one lunatic, overreaction.
If she doesn't reflect the values of the network, more power to them.
has that been confirmed?
Oh yeah, the show is gone.
That’s still a show?
I thought they stopped making episodes forever ago.
They brought it back, jeez gow lol
It’s really too bad for all the other people working on the show. And, for Valerie Jarret. No one should have their looks talked about that way. Roseann is a grown woman, she should know better.
You’re right. No one should. But lazysteelworker has no problem using racist words like ‘cracker’ in her comment below. I just read all the comments on the racist poll and come here to find a racist comment right off the bat.
I agree Kat, those remarks by lazy do sound derogatory. It’s so petty for people to speak this way.
Hey katerina, if you're going to talk shit about someone, have the guts to tag them. You need an education on what racism and racist is, ignorance and stupidity is not an excuse.
Or what, steelworker? You gonna call me a racist name, too? At least I have sense enough to not use a derogatory, RACIST term like ‘cracker’ to describe a white woman. And you do not. So, there’s that.
So @lazy, what is racist and racism.
Racism isn't subjective. You don't get to just say something is racist and it becomes so, no matter how badly you'd like everyone to agree with you.
And yes katerina, there's no doubt in my mind that you are also a crazy cracker. 🤣
Do a little research and try some education yourself. Calling a white person a cracker is racist, whether you’d like it to be or not. And you’ve shown your true self, just like Roseanne.
I think you're just mad cause she used your tweet material 😂
Not mine. Unlike you, I don’t talk that way about other people.
Lazy, racism is totally subjective!
Maybe there needs to be a class or something. I could teach it. I realize that there has been a trend of labeling things as racist and about 50% of those aren't but I thought more people would have learned the difference by now.
(I think most people know)
Here's your pop quiz then Marty, is calling someone a crazy cracker racist?
It depends: are you calling her a “cracker” to “put her down” because she is white (and you are not), or is it a term of endearment?
According to Webster, racism is “a belief that race is the primary determinant of human traits and capacities and that racial differences produce an inherent superiority of a particular race”
So if it was the latter then it was not racist correct? Congratulations you passed.
Dont say racist shit when you work for disney.
Correction. Don’t bash the left when working for Disney. The rights fair game.
But was it really racist?
So racism is just bashing the left...
You’re kidding, right? Yes, it’s about as racist and derogatory as you can get. But she did apologize, although we now know her true opinion. I still don’t want to see the show canceled. 😕
I liked the show! I grew up watching Rosanne, not sad to see it go. Some things are more important.
Its not racist. Comparing one man to an ape is not racist.
Can someone please tell me what was racist about RBs twitter post?
@weremonkeys77 no not in definition only in persecution
I liked the show too, but there is no excuse for what Roseann said. Comparing another woman’s looks to an ape is awful behavior.
Have you heard what the late night show hosts say about Sara sanders? No different.
Still don't get the relation to why the MSM is saying it was a racist remark. Unless the MSM is saying blacks are apes. Sounds like they are the racist . . .
Msm likes its hyperboly. Do not forget outrage sells in this country.
Can you guys stop with the intellectual dishonesty? As if this is the first time you've heard a black person be referred to as an ape, resembling an ape, or ape like Behavior. I've heard that for as long as I can remember.
Ya so? Would the statement be racist if the man was white? No? The identity of the person is irrelevant.
Apes like activities is a thing. Describing an individual as ape like isnt racist. No dishonesty here mate.
You presuming this is a ravist statement is more racist then the statement itself.
The statement wouldn't be racist if you referred to a white person as an ape because we both just agreed that black people have been referred to as Apes. We are literally talking about the person's identity
No, you and your warped veiws of politics will not allow you too see anything normally. You look threw an identity politics lens.
If the statement chsbges meaning because of the individuals race, the statement isnt racist- you are.
My dad called me a little chimp everyday growing up. I’m white and so it he.
Just because it is obvious the definition of racism is lost on you.
\ˈrā-ˌsi-zəm also -ˌshi-\

Thats great logic in a vaccuum.
A stranger comparing a woman’s appearance to that of an ape is inexcusable. It is not ok.
Sure, i can agree that the statement is insensitive.
Just because I feel like being a smart-ass, we are in a vacuum approximately 1,013.25 millibars.
I find it a bit ironic that we are having a dispute about a statement comparing a man to a ape - and your username is we are all monkeys....
Lol. You are right. Wearemonkeys is being beyond hypocritical.
Can't say I'm surprised, they should have known she was a crazy cracker a decade ago when she pulled the anthem stunt lol
The funny part about this, I was just having a conversation with a coworker about it and explained to them how the other major networks like Fox are pretty much only jumping on the story to get this reaction. Fox don't give a crap about her tweets, they just sent that show off ABC so they don't have to compete with it lol
There’s no excuse for what Roseanne did, and there’s no excuse for your derogatory racist ‘cracker’ comment either.
Baskins Robbins has 31 flavors and you chose Salty?
And you choose to be racist just like Roseanne
You wouldn't know racist if it were water and you fell out of a boat.
Racial slurs aren't inherently racist... sorry bro.
Care to elaborate Robert?
Racism is either one's believe that one race is Superior to others or Prejudice based on race. (Or both)
A racial slur is usually a slang word for a race with a negative annotation.
If the negative annotation has trueths to it it isnt prejudice.
And if it isn't prejudice then it would therefore not be racist?...
Keyword in my first comment, inharently.
If a racial slur isn't inherently racist then how is it a racial slur? Wouldn't that be a slur in general terms? Once it is determined to be of racist intent it would then be inherently racist would it not?
No a slur is
an insinuation or allegation about someone that is likely to insult them or damage their reputation.
Or (or both)
an act of speaking indistinctly so that sounds or words run into one another or a
tendency to speak in such a way.
An offensive term to describe ones race is just that, if the context of the terms usage is to insinuate superiority or is an ill-advised preconceived opinion of the individual based solely on race. - then yes its racist. If the criteria met to fit the definition of racist then I'm sorry to say it's not racist.
How is it that you can define a "racial" slur as not being racist? (Your words, not inherently)
Using the word "racial" in this capacity is merely an adjective. Without the slur being racist, it would be incorrect to even describe it as such and would therefore simply be a slur.
Its is a insinuation relating to race.
Which has a neutral connotation.
Where did I lose you?
