I thought it would be better to have her do something on the show that lands her in prison. Then some therapy sessions etc etc you know, like real life stuff maybe a road rage incident where she says very off color <bleeped out> Stuff and ends up in an accident. Goes to a few months of prison then introspective therapy where she has to confront her racism

I'm glad, maybe we finally have a precedent for getting rid of people who make blatantly racist tweets. ABC and ESPN are under the same umbrella, maybe they will be forced to relook st how many racist things they have let go by the commentators at other stations throughout the Disney umbrella.


I highly doubt it, yet at least we are able to call a spade a spade at this point with irrefutable evidence.

So why wasn't Hollywood equally as appalled by Michelle Wolf's speech at the WH. Correspondents’ dinner? Oh wait! I know why: because MW was just joking around, right?

Funny how self righteous people become while a double standard stares them right in the face.

The double standard is quite evident. However, we cannot hold ourselves to the standard that other people do wrong things so our wrong things should be overlooked. This statement standing alone on its own merit was ridiculous and offensive. Others have been noted in previous posts as ridiculous and offensive also. They were. The fact that they are overlooked should not factor into the disdain for what she said.

I'm with ya totally. What she tweeted was wrong. It's just difficult for me to stomach her condemnation coming from her peers-- namely other celebrities. Kettle calling the pot black kind a thing without an acknowledgment of it's own depravity or complicity in perpetuating the problem.

This is exactly correct. The question becomes how do you play a game of political intrigue where the rules are "x" for one side and "y" for another and still try to win? It is akin to trying to fight a war following every Geneva Convention condition while the enemy completely ignores it and uses children as human shields. Good luck winning.

Oh give me a break. I’m no liberal, but even I know it’s been racist to call a black person an ape for over 100 years. It’s about as racist of a comment you can make. Trying to say it’s a liberal “PC” issue or something only liberals are offended by just shows how far people go to put things in a partisan light these days. Sad.



You do realize VJ is very white skinned, heck I am darker skinned than she is! And MANY didn't know she was half African something(and there ARE white skinned people in Africa around the med sea). Heck I didn't know! She looks WHITE.

In Roseanne's entire 65 year life nobody has accused her of racism. Now 1 tweet makes her a KKK racist to the left. Sorry but no it desn't. It was a stupid tweet done while on Ambien which has KNOWN side effects of making you do things your conscious would normally say no to.

I am so tired of the left screaming racism when the dem party is the party of the KKK and the modern welfare slave plantation!

Roseanne should have held up the bloody severed head of Valarie Jarrett. That's the stuff of real comediennes.

I won't defend Barr but I can tell you from personal experience that Ambian can really mess you up. I was on it for about 2-3 nights and had weird thoughts and was very irritable and nasty. Told my doctor that I would never use it again and I was better off not sleeping very well (due to my RLS) and acting normal if even tired and sluggish. A friend of mine was married for thirty years, happily. Met the family many times. Had meals with them many times. His wife started taking Ambian and they separated six months later and she filed for divorce. He said he didn't even recognize her anymore.

Ambian. Stay away from it.

Ambien responds:

Sanofi, who makes Ambien, tweeted a response Wednesday morning: "While all pharmaceutical treatments have side effects, racism is not a known side effect of any Sanofi medication."

Ambien is a strange drug. I would lose hours out of my day because of it. Take it and head to bed, except by body decided to keep on living while my brain was sleeping.

I did all kinds of things that I have zero recollection because of this drug. Glad I'm off all pills now. They mess the body, mind and spirit up.

What the hell is the intention of this statement??
'She's not real dark, so Barr's statement isn't quite so bad'?
Very strange.

Ambien huh? She's been in and out of rehab at least three times.. for Ambien?
I'm thinking Ambien might be an alternative fact.

What Roseanne tweeted was not racist. If you think its racist then you are implying that black people look like monkeys. So actually youre the one thats racist. Either that or youre just virtue signaling.

Its also come to the surface that the show was cancelled only after long phone conversation between Michelle Obama and head at ABC.

This is exactly the kind of propaganda the left wants to churn out and atmosphere they want to create.

Former NSA director under Obama is now on the board at Netflix and is coming out with a series created by the Obamas.

Wake up people. 99% of people shouting "thats racist!" is a complete load of manure.

The bar for what is "racist" has been lowered below the floor.

Good points.


Disagree, not a good point. vanquish is mixing two separate items, and comparing them.

"evolutionists believe we all descended from apes"

Is much different than "compare a black person to an ape"

The former states life changes over a long time period.

The latter is a racist slur as it compares a modern human to a modern ape.
