You do not actually think she means one word of that "apology" do you? She only posted it because people were @ tagging ABC so they could see what she wrote. ABC is the reason she backed down.

What is the single thing the left has taken from this string of tweets to become outraged about? Was it about obama spying rampantly? Nope. Was it about his secrets coming out? Nope. Was it about vj helping to hide things? Nope. Seems like much of these things had been in the media lately. So, what did the left get all foaming at the mouth about if it weren't for those dreadful things? Oh yeah, an idiotic comment made by Barr that she had immediately apologized for.


Did I like what Barr had tweeted? Nope. She did apologize for it though, I seem to remember when Griffen had finally apologized for holding up the severed head prop, the left was saying - 'she apologized, let it go' (even though she walked it back). Bunch of hypocrites on the left it appears, telling people that once someone apologizes then it should be let go,lol. And, not a peep from them about the first 3 tweets. shameful.
I don't think Kathy Griffin's career ever recovered from what she did. I think what she did was abhorrent and she should also have suffered the consequences of her actions.

I never thought it was funny. I said so on this very forum. So did plenty of other "libs" as you like to call us.

Gonna tell us how inappropriate Roseanne was?

I exempt the POTUS from this of course who seems to the only person alive who can say whatever the hell offensive words he likes.
She suffers the consequences of her big mouth. I have zero issue with ABC - or any corporation - firing an employee for behavior detrimental to the corporation's values. I don't care for Roseanne Barr or her show. I've no vested interest in the outcome here.

The sole reason for my participation in this thread has been to mock and marginalize the hypersensitivity that creates such overblown outrage any time a famous person says something stupid. I'm being very honest about that fact. I'm here only to point and laugh at the wide-sweeping insanity that I see here.

Show cancelled over a tweet ...

Meanwhile Michelle Wolf made a ton of politically incorrect statements and she got a Netflix special . Double standard anyone ?
