I like how Sara Gilbert jumped in and felt the need to add "and so much more", just because they disagreed on a lot politically. Yeah, what Roseanne said was pretty damn racist (and not even accurate; I've seen some apey looking people, race aside, and Jarrett is not one of them), but apparently everything Gilbert disagreed with her on is now retroactively abhorrent as well?
Also, Wanda Sykes was involved in that show? It's hard to believe such a prolific race-baiter could get along with a conservative of Roseanne's "caliber".
She didn't say she looks like an Ape, she said she looks like the baby of the Muslim Brotherhood and Plante of the Apes. Look at the old Planet of the Apes movies, and look at Valerie Jarrett, the resemblance is there.
I'm not surprised with ABC on this. I was shocked they even did this show after they pull Tim Allen's show due to his Trump suport. Hopefully another station will grab onto it for next season.
As for the outcry, well, again, not surprised. People are going to find something to complain about. Had she made the same comment about Trump she would be getting praise on ABC, CNN, and such right now. The whole thing comes down to people taking jokes to serious. The real joke here is that someone can jokingly make a comment about something and get blasted for it, while someone else can make the same comment, not joking, and get praised. Strange times, hopefully this weird hiccup in our evolution will be over soon.
Stop hate, let others live the life they were given. Everyone has their problems, and no one should have to feel ashamed for the way they were born. Be proud of who you are, encourage others to be proud of themselves. Learn, research, absorb everything around you. Nothing is meaningless, a purpose is placed on everything no matter how you perceive it. Discover how to love, and share that love with everything that you encounter. Help make existence a beautiful thing.
