This situation isn't really comparable to Roseanne. Roseanne said some shit about a political aide that could easily be interpreted as racism. ABC fired her to save face and she apologized. Not even a day passes until she takes back her apology and begins ridiculing and mocking this person again because they're associated with a political figure she doesn't like. She then goes on Twitter rants and a FOX News interview in order to gain sympathy points for making some fucked up comments. She didn't learn anything and is engaging in the typical "leftists are evil and inhumane" conversation that proves she hasn't learned her lesson. ABC was completely justified in firing her. Sarah Jeong made reprehensible comments about an entire gender and race in 2014 in order to be a provocateur and got called out on her racist and sexist statements. She has since apologized for these statements and admits that they were a bad attempt to replicate the language of individuals that targeted her for her gender and ethnicity. Its been 4 years and she has presumably grown up and changed as a person since than. This attempt to mark her as Satan is similar to the attempts to make statements said by James Gunn and Donald Trump several years ago a political tool to completely dismiss them. Everyone says regrettable shit and everyone has to learn to grow from the mistakes they make. Jeong, Gunn, and Trump have apologized extensively for the comments they have made and are on the process of trying to better themselves. I'm not saying that her statements were acceptable and action needs to be taken if she says shit like that again, but I feel that this movement to demonize her is just another chapter added to the outrage culture that's perpetuated by both the left and the right.
2014 my well sweaty b****. Is what's shown in the op her entire body of work, or just a sampling? Regardless, this spans almost 27 months. Aug 2013 - Nov 2015. It's not like she farted at dinner one time and apologized for it. She farted right in people's faces, with purpose, for over 2 years. Often times at dinner. As far as time span goes, this wasn't a blip. In the less than 3 years hence, not 4 years, she may have developed a sense of professional self preservation, but there's no reason to give her credit for anything other than that. Is there? Did she even attempt to own any of this before she was forced to?
Her comments were definitely racist, but all the tweets with dates on them are years old.
Her comment on it:
"While it was intended as satire, I deeply regret that I mimicked the language of my harassers. These comments were not aimed at a general audience, because general audiences do not engage in harassment campaigns. I can understand how hurtful these posts are out of context, and would not do it again."
If someone admits wrongdoing when it comes to racism years in the past, I think that's okay.
Passing that off as satire? That's the worst, objectively worst, satire I've ever seen. If I were having dinner with her, and she started trying out her satirical material on me, I'd rather she just....i dunno... fart in my face. And this is at dinner mind you. Terrible satire. Terrible excuse. And she brings up the C word, as if the lack of C is the missing piece of the puzzle that will make me go, "Oh. Ohhhhhh! I get it now! You're a fucking racist on Twitter.......because other racists made you a racist too? Theeeenks! At least I know why you're a racist C word!" That's the context I guess. And/or she's one of the worst satirists in history.
