Looks like Roseanne's tweets crossed the line.

What I do not understand is why so many people, apparently when they run out things to say, decide to attack someone's looks when they disagree with them. Why?

'Roseanne' canceled after star's racist Twitter rant

I saw her apologizing on my muted TV this morning before I learned online that the show had been cancelled. I found myself dumbfounded about how people can make such ignorant remarks and then think an apology can solve everything. Why say it to begin with, we all know when something should not be said or printed. Even me, a peon in the world, knows better than to say the things that she tweeted.

She has finally made enemies where there is no going back. Her castmates, who she affected, are surely never going to speak to her again, they lost their jobs and will forever be associated with her and this fiasco. Even if another network wanted to pick up and continue such a successful show, there is nobody who would touch her now.

Hope you can survive on your savings, residuals and Social Security payments, Roseanne. You. Are. Done.

Note to all of Hollyweird......keep your hands and your politics to yourselves or you will be next.

They are unacceptable even from a comic as Hollywood types forget too often. She needed to be held accountable and was.

She isnt the only one making unacceptable comments from the rich and powerful entertainment crowd. They all need to be held to account

Agreed, and as far as I'm concerned, certain castmates are the ones who made both the old and new shows worth watching, Sara Gilbert and Laurie Metcalf in particular.

It was wrong and she knows that. She apologized. No matter what she does now on this subject. It will never be enough
America is so politically correct now, its gotten out of control. Every day its another He said or did this. She said this or that. You can't say anything and everyone is offended. Either or Roseanne should have kept her mouth shut

I bet her cast members are mad as he'll she caused the canx of the show.

Its only a cash cow if advertisers are willing too spend money on the show.
