The first revival season did really well ratings wise, and ABC announced it had renewed the show for another season. I wonder if what happened on Twitter today will have any impact.

It's quite normal for celebrities to tweet dumb things that may be pushing the line of inappropriate or offensive, we see that happen every day. But Rosanne compared a black woman to a monkey today. Yikes.

So one person calls another person an ape on Twitter and you extrapolate from that a humanity problem that requires correction? Seriously?

There are just too many insane people here. Good grief.

I think she is about to go full Britney. I'm glad she is stepping away from Twitter because its obvious someone is going to bait her into saying something that will truly bite her in the rear.






I know she has sought mental treatment in the past and think it might be a good time to renew that. It's not normal for someone at her professional level to go down the rabbit hole as frequently as she does. She, like Kathy Griffin, needs to remember that in the end she is a product. If he causes more problems than her profits or publicity merit, ABC will move on to another product.


It's also a bit odd how strongly people are invested in a group of fictional characters to validate their beliefs when the show undermines them at every other turn. Hopefully this will inspire someone to introduce conservative characters who are not voiced by someone carrying so much baggage.

Way to go Sarah Gilbert!

With Sarah being a member of the gay community, I was waiting to see what she would say on this matter of her coworker disrespecting minority groups with hateful language. Very proud of her.

This very well could be the end of the show.

I definitely don't agree with Jarrett's politics, but this kind of low brow commentary from Barr will screw conservatives in the midterms and in 2020 if party supporters don't condemn her.

The best way to defeat democrats is to prove them wrong about racism and identity politics.

I don't know. Maybe it would not be racist to you if you think calling someone an "ape" isn't a racist comment.

Uh, I am referring to people saying its just a joke, or she is a comedian. Even a couple of posters saying its ok because its anti PC. Did that not happened? Did you not read the responses. Typically calling someone an Ape is a line thats not crossed by comedians.
