Title: Roseanne's sitcom cancelled
Post by: Psk on May 29, 2018, 06:48:28 pm
Well, that didn't last long. As I predicted last year, when the revival of the Roseanne TV was announced, it's been canceled. I praise ABC for doing a good job making sure the show didn't go too far & wasn't too bigoted. Unfortunately although they were able to control the show's content a bit, they had no control over the star's bigoted life... a devoted Trump supporter.

Roseanne in a tweet said former Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett looked like the Muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby.

Hours later, ABC canceled Ms. Barr’s show. The sudden cancellation of a hit show with some of the highest ratings for a new series in years stunned an industry.

According to two Disney insiders who spoke on the condition of anonymity to describe company matters, there was more at stake than just a hit show. Disney has been widely praised in recent years as a leader in efforts to combat racial stereotypes through its movies and TV series.

Roseanne dismissed accusations that the comment was racist, defending it as just a joke. That's the problem with most racists. They don't even know they're racists. To even think up, & say a thing like that, thinking it was a funny joke makes them racist, but they don't know it. They say they were just "kidding around". To joke that a top adviser to Obama looks like they descended from a Muslim monkey, is extremely insulting & racist.

That's like Trump's "Locker Room" humor isn't really funny unless they're a filthy pig. But they don't know they're a pig.
