Why hasn't Joy Behar, Joy Reid, Bill Maher lost their jobs? They've said things just as bad or worse than Rosanne. Not defending but come on.
Different networks allow different things. No more, no less.
Then there's Keith olbermann...
If you don't see the difference, I can't explain it to you.

Why did Disney just hire Keith Olberman who has a history of disgusting tweets about Trump?
Saying things or making jokes about Trump, Obama, Hillary, etc. is one thing that a network may or may not have an issue with but blatant racism no longer has place in a civilized society. As other commenters have said, if you don’t understand the difference, it’s a waste of time to try and explain it to you.
If they’re going to fire Roseanne for stupidity then they never should have hired Olberman for his stupidity either. Whether it’s racist or using the F word against Trump and calling him a Nazi multiple times in multiple tweets, you either have high standards or none at all. Looks like Disney has none.
So, you believe using the “F word” in referring to Trump is equivalent to Rosanne Barr’s tweet?
It’s just as disgusting and inappropriate. It would have been better not to hire either one because of their over the top comment history. I’m sure Walt Disney is spinning in his grave over what Disney has become over the years.
You don’t get it and I don’t believe anyone can explain it to you.
I understand it perfectly. You seem to have a double standard going on.
There’s no double standard. You’re comparing things that are nowhere near equal.
Vile comments are vile comments. You are using a double standard.
Then you will go on believing Rosanne Barr was treated unfairly. And that’s your right.
I didn’t say that. I said that she and Olberman never should have been hired in the first place given their nasty comment history. ABC was hesitant to hire her because of her erratic past behavior and was assured she had matured....she hasn’t. Olberman hasn’t matured either if you look at his recent tweets.
Just out of curiosity what do you think they've said that's worse?
Joy behar anti Christian comments...
Geez the Bill Maher one is pretty bad, but it's a different network that's known for pushing the edge as far as tv goes. That being said I can't really stand him.
I don't know if the if the Olberman stuff is as bad as what Roseann said. I mean it's hateful and way too aggressive, but it's not really racist.
Behar was bad though.
