It's a sign of deep instability to respond to crap like this with such vehemence. It's really mindblowing to witness.
Roseanne was a multi-million $$ baby to ABC. trump drooled all over her show. She crossed the line, any fool can see that.

What's mindblowing is that you are OK with it.

She's tweeted this crazy, racist, conspiracy theory stuff for years. They knew this and hired her anyway.

And rightfully so. The "one tweet" From Rosanne involved her likening a a black woman to a monkey.

I'm sure you agree 100% that Barr's comments were way out of line and disrespectful.

I'm not ok with it, I'm quite ambivalent toward it actually, and see it as an extremely petty issue. It's watching so many people get unhinged over it that really surprises me. Words. People coming unhinged over WORDS.

This should be a lesson for all networks and sponsors who take a chance on trumpettes. They cannot control themselves, just like their leader. In the end these companies will lose revenues....that's their bottom line and ABC just lost big as the 2nd season is in production.

Exactly these Trump supporter's seem to think this was a perfectly okay joke. They say "stop the fake outrage" bla bla bla . They're living in an alternative universe and are totally clueless!

It's like finding out that Joy Bahar doesn't like you.
