    'Roseanne' Canceled by ABC after Racist Tweet

    'Roseanne' Canceled by ABC after Racist Tweet

    "Roseanne" -- the breakout hit of 2018 -- has gotten the axe just hours after Roseanne posted a tweet about former Obama aide Valerie Jarrett, saying, "muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes."

    ABC said, "Roseanne's Twitter statement is abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values, and we have decided to cancel her show."

    Reaction was unbelievably swift. Roesanne took the tweet down and apologized, but the damage was already done.

    Wanda Sykes bailed instantly as a direct result of the tweet. Sara Gilbert tweeted just before ABC's announcement, "This is incredibly sad and difficult for all of us, as we've created a show that we believe in, are proud of, and that audiences love -- one that is separate and apart from the opinions and words of one cast member."

    The show premiered in March to an enormous rating of 18 million viewers, triggering a slew of reboot shows. It was renewed for season 2 just days after the debut.

    Yeah, they were just looking for some way to cancel the show... Wanna bet Fox picks it up?

    Oh and of course what about her freedom of speech? Isn't that what the left is saying Collin Capernic has and should not be punished for kneeling during the National Anthem? Double standard is the only standard the left has.

    Why is ABC okay with all of the hate spewed by those nasty bitches on The View? Rosanne is a comedian and she made a joke, those bitches are serious and they talk shit daily about people.

    I just realized a few months ago the nerdy girl from the Big Bang theory that works at the school was from the Rosanne show.

    ABC/Disney probably have some personal conduct clause in their contract with Roseanne. The parent company being Disney they obviously aren't going to want someone making public comments like that. It will have an effect on their bottom line as Disney is supposed to be the family and kid-friendly company.

    It's all about the money. It's like if a millionaire business owner was racist against blacks, but knows that 80% of his revenue came from blacks. Freedom of speech or not, a smart businessman would keep his comments to himself and smile all the way to the bank.

    Its' about silencing anyone with a Conservative.. right wing .. populist.. Americana.. constitutionalist .. or nationalist.. point of view.

    She came out in support of Trump.. that was the knife .. she cut her own throat.
