Roseanne just cancelled after a racist tweet. Was ABC justified in this move?
Justified from a reputation standpoint.
It was the best news I've heard yet today. The de-Trumpification has begun.
I mean, it is Roseanne. Sadly not surprised at either the quote or the reaction to it.
As far as the cancellation goes, up to the network, I wouldn't have planned a re boot anyway but that's just me.
What about the late night comedians that every show bash trump, his supporters, other republican figures. What about Kathy griffin that held up a bloody decapitated head of trump? What about those loud mouths that degrade on the view? (How is that show still on?) such hypocrites by the media, celebrities, and the left.
Didn't Kathy Griffith get a ton of flak for doing that? And I don't think I've seen a late night talk show host refer to minorities as monkeys. There's a difference between being critical of the people in charge and overt racism.
That really stinks. Her quote wasn’t even funny. What was the point? The sad thing is her mistake just cost a lot of people (a whole lot more people got a paycheck from her show than just Roseanne). It stinks for the investors, the actors, the staff, the network, and the viewers. Really shows you how destructive social media can be.
Its up to the network.
But imho i dont believe her tweet to be racist. Rude - and prejudice for sure, but 'racist' is stretching it.
She was very rude, there’s no excuse for it.
If she doesn't reflect the values of the network, more power to them.
They can do whatever they want. I think there dumb for doing it but it’s there biz
