Roseanne’s tweet is really sad and deplorable. I am an independent who currently leans pretty conservative, and it disturbs me to see a conservative act like this. I’ve never watched any of her shows or know much about her — did she just do it for attention, or is she really that racist and stupid?

Not only has Rosanne got herself and all her cast members fired, Rosanne will now be remembered as a racist.
Her original show will be tainted as well.
Which is a shame. I used to like Rosanne. Perhaps they should never have revived the show.

No idea how Ms Jarrett might have felt but clearly Disney-ABC felt that this sort of potential hit to their image, which may have put relationships with their advertisers at risk, is one of those things that really matters.

The pragmatism of capitalism is in full display today.

Every once in a while, it aligns with morality.

Reminds me of that saying. You cannot go home again. Pet Sematary--some things are better left dead.

Haha, goodbye Roseanne !!!!!! She always had no class, and now her true colors have come out and she is paying the price. Good riddance !!!


Maybe Trump can pardon her, or, at least offer her a job in his administration. She would be a perfect fit.

Revived the show? They resuscitated and reanimated a dead character....which is a deal breaker for me....even if I liked the show, which I found so-so.

When you hold up the head of ANY president, politician, human, and actually think it's funny, yea, that's not a comedian I think is funny or want to watch so even at the most basic level I would think that others feel the same and it will hurt a career.. Nor would I care to have anything to do with the people who thought it was funny,
What would you have had "done" to Kathy Griffin?
She got fired, as was completely appropriate and as has happened in this instance.

Herman Cain is on FOX right now defending Roseanne !

He says ABC cancelled the show because of Trump Derangement Syndrome!....and thinks she isn't a racist.
My God! I bet if you held up a mirror to Herman Cain he probably wouldn't be able to identify himself as a black man either!

It already is! The show was canceled and that is probably the last time you’ll see her do another television sitcom.

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 agree with you. For many liberals and those who feel victimizied. Words are worse than bullets.

As for me. I can careless about her show. As for those celebrating? Those that are celebrating are wasting thier time and are incredibly stupid. Why? What does Rosanne show being canceled is going to do for you? Are you getting paid for her show being canceled? No. Also this is not the end of Rosanne. People who say racist, sexist and political comments that are negative will get jobs again. My best bet for those who feel offended or triggered by those who say racist, sexist and political derogatory comments. Is to take over state and and local politics, and force federal government to place people in prison for words against humanity and civility,

As for Rosanne? What she said was offensive, but life must go on with out her.
