Roseanne Is Exactly Who She Always Has Been

When ABC announced they were doing a reboot of Roseanne I thought they had really sold out to bring back that woman. Her twitter history of slurring anyone who is not white, straight, American and republican was clear before today. I am happy that despite high ratings and thus good revenue ABC took swift action when Barr tweeted out her slur of Valerie Jarrett.

Just because the guy in the White House tweets out all sorts of unsavory slurs does not mean that the rest of the country has to sink that low. If we all would stand up to that kind of bullying we would be a better country.

Now Roseanne is claiming that we didn’t get her “joke.” I am all for comedy, satire and wittiness, but there was no fine line between those things and Barr comparing Ms. Jarrett an ape. But no one should be surprised by this, least of all ABC.

Did they do no due diligence on her by reading just a year’s worth of her twitter feed. She has acted this way forever so I sure she is wondering why this crossed the line. Well it did, and thank goodness for decisive response.

I feel sorry for the people who work on her show, like camera and lighting people, who are now out of work. The best thing that could happen is for ABC to find other work for them right away.

We do have freedom of speech in this country and Roseanne has the right to spew whatever kind of hate her black heart comes up with, but we don’t have to reward her with money and a platform on a network TV show to spread her kind of evil. Standing up to bullies is the right thing to do and ABC did that today. But hey, do your homework before you give another hater a show so you don’t have to go through this again.

    I agree with you here, Dana. But I have wondered Time and time again why ABC continues to keep Joy Behar on the air. She spews hate and filth on a daily basis—against our President and his family. She can’t be accused of being a racist because she’s white and he’s white, but when you get right down to it, what is the difference?! A black heart is still a black heart. ABC is the epitome of hypocrisy if it continues to keep The View on the air.

    In the tweets before the Valarie Jarrett one she also insulted Chelsea Clinton (who showed amazing class in her response) and called George Soros a Nazi among other bizarre and horrible tweets. I’m impressed that despite that they will literally lose millions ABC did the right thing. I unfortunately read the comments on news stories on the subject and it was terrifying how many people defended the vile comments.
