A shame the rest of the cast and crew now are out of a job next season because of her big mouth. I used to really like Roseanne when the orignal show was on the air, now she seems to have lost all her marbles.

A good chunk of the cast actually has steady regular side jobs.

There's probably 100 people that work on the show other than the main cast members though. All of whom thought they had a job lined up next season, but alas the mouth and twitter fingers of Roseanne...

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.

Exactly. ABC liked the money they were making from the show, but their politics disagree strongly with Barr's. Had this been a left leaning show, instead of center right, the actress would have been allowed to apologize, maybe go on an apology tour on a few tonight shows, then get right back to work. 



Does ABC own the rights to Rosanne? If not, someone else should pick it up. Hell, if I was Netflix I will try to pick it up. It's a golden ticket to success.

 

Edit: If I remember correctly, ABC and ESPN are owned by Dinsey. A lot of ESPN employees are making racist or outlandish remarks on Twitter, but weren't severely punished because they are against Trump. Ridiculous to say the least.

She doesn't joke around though even if you tweeted her 'you are joking right?' She would attack you.  She even attacked her own kids because they are not so radical like her.






Another Job killed by Social Media. When will people learn that using these Social Medial sites to say what you think and feel is no different then saying it right in your boss face especially if your account is not private.

It seems like you guys forgot that ABC wanted the broadcast rights for this show from the beginning, probably aware of Barr's political views. Roseanne being a Trump supporter was one of the big themes in the revival, if I'm not mistaken.

So maybe it's not about Barr's political views but about she being a complete shitbag on twitter.



Hopefully FOX revives it like they did with Last Man Standing after ABC cancelled it because of Tim Allen's "Being a conservative in Hollywood is like being a Jew in Nazi Germany" comment. ABC has become far too PC and leftist in recent years, it's a shame, they were once one of my favorite tv stations.

I've seen comics of other colors make racist jokes left and right and barely anybody bats an eyelash, but as soon as Roseanne, a white comic, does it, it's suddenly the worst thing in the world. The left has far too many easily offended snowflakes sadly. 



From what I saw of the tweet, it's not bad enough to cancel the show over. I've seen plenty of blue check marks say worse about white people.



She is dumb if she didn't think these comments wouldn't have consequences, and now people are going to use this to support their idiotic "all trump-supporters are racist" crap



Nothing to see here, move along

Well she is open Trump and is one of the reasons why the revival was an entertaining show but she took it to far on many occasions and today's tweet was the last straw.
