After years, if not decades of not having a successful hit series, the clinically retarded leadership of ABC has opted to throw Roseanne Barr under the bus for a politically incorrect remark, rather than take any more than the shallowest of looks at what was said. Good work, ABC. I’m sure you can earn that last place in the ratings.
Maybe one of the many new streaming TV channels or Netflix will decide to pick up the Roseanne show and her millions of viewers.
One news article reports “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 Obama who is black.”
“Early on Tuesday, Ms. Barr posted a comment about Valerie Jarrett, the former adviser to Mr. Obama, that said if ‘muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby=vj.’”
“Ms. Barr, whose ABC sitcom about the Conner family ended a successful comeback season last week, initially dismissed accusations that the comment was racist, defending it as “a joke.” She also said on Twitter, ‘ISLAM is not a RACE, lefties. Islam includes EVERY RACE of people.’”
“Ms. Barr later deleted the post about Ms. Jarrett, and initially said nothing about the reference to ‘The Planet of the Apes.’ About a half-hour later, she offered an apology…”
It should be noted that Valerie Jarrett is a very light-skinned multi-racial individual, who was born in Iran. An article from YNet news reported in 2011 that “White House Senior Advisor Valerie Jarrett revealed Monday that she is of Jewish descent. Her announcement followed the departure of two advisors to US President Barack Obama, former White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel and senior political consultant David Axelrod…”
“According to Jarrett: ‘Many, many years ago, my parents hosted a Seder for a group of our Jewish friends, and it was here that my father first told me that my great-grandfather was Jewish. What a wonderful surprise for our friends, and for me! So Passover has always been a special holiday for me.’”
Roseanne may not have actually known what race Jarrett was aside from the fact that she was born in Iran. But of course the tyrants of political correctness will not consider the facts of the case. Roseanne is guilty of being a conservative and MUST lose her hit show on ABC!!!
Meanwhile, Joy Behar who is employed on ABC’s liberal cackle-box show, “The View,” sent out a Tweet in April saying that she wished that the dead victim of an apartment fire in Trump Tower was the current President of the United States, Donald Trump. Behar of course is still working at ABC while Roseanne was instantly kicked out of her job!
