ABC deserves some praise for FINALLY cancelling Roseanne after a number of racist and divisive tweets and statements by Roseanne.

It should have happened sooner!

But better late than never.

Restores a tad of faith in America.

I'm in the "who freakin' cares one way or the other who said what and what they meant by it" crowd. We're talking about one person on Twitter running their mouth off. It's nothing more complicated or shocking than that. I fail to understand how and why people who are not involved get so worked up over words exchanged by and between others. It's a sign of deep instability to respond to crap like this with such vehemence. It's really mindblowing to witness. Now I'm watching an almost church-like Hallejuah! here because the show got canceled as a result. People need to get lives outside this crap, man.

I can see why Roseanne is a Trump supporter, they are exactly alike!
