‘Roseanne’ Canceled by ABC Hours After Racist Tweet by Roseanne Barr
ABC canceled the hit sitcom “Roseanne” on Tuesday hours after the show’s star and co-creator, Roseanne Barr, posted a racist tweet about a former top adviser to President Barack Obama.
Early on Tuesday, Barr posted a comment about Valerie Jarrett, an African-American woman who was a senior adviser to Mr. Obama throughout his presidency and considered one of his most influential aides, that said if “muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby.”
Hours later, ABC canceled Ms. Barr’s show, which had ended its successful comeback season last week and was expected to return in the fall for 13 episodes.
“Roseanne’s Twitter statement is abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values, and we have decided to cancel her show,” ABC’s entertainment president, Channing Dungey, said in a statement. Ms. Dungey was appointed to her current role in February 2016, becoming the first black entertainment president of a major broadcast television network.
See folks this is the type of environment having a racist as president creates. Racist whites are feeling more emboldened than ever to show their true selves and in a way I appreciate that because it’s better than wasting time on worthless bigots.
Sometimes I try to delve into the psyche of an individual in an attempt to understand what motivates them.
In Roseanne Barr’s case, I honestly believe that she was attempting a move derived directly from: Trump’s How to Energize Your bigoted base playbook.
Of course Barr hadn’t foreseen the fact that many Americans do not subscribe to the racist titillation that have plagued us since President Orange Orangutan’s swearing in.
It’s bad enough whem ,imorities are targeted by whites who feel emboldened to summon the authorities when we are doing NOTHING other than:
Having a Barbeque in a public Park
Taking a nap in a lounge of a university we are attending
Or enduring a racist Tirade by attorney Alan Schlossburg because you speak to a customer in their native language which happens to be Spanish.
As a direct descendent of White intolerable and deplorable hicks. I’am ecstatic that people of color are taking a stand against this type of bullying by having cookouts while black, hiring Mariachi bands and so forth.
REMEMBER STAY CALM AND DO NOT CONFRONT POLICE. IT IS BY BEHAVING AS A RATIONALE PERSON AND RECORDING EVERYTHING THAT WE WILL SHOW THESE MORONS THAT WE STAND STRONG AND UNITED.
