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!

That is a distortion! I listened to the whole thing and he said it was wrong.

Admittedly I'm not a comedian and probably not even that funny. But what was supposed to be so funny about Roseanne's tweets? She kept blaming in a "bad joke." I don't see where the joke was.

Not going to happen unless she wants to do the show solo.

It's not the only nasty remark she made that day.
She's turned into a vile individual.
Apologies don't always cut it.

If she wants to work she'll probably have to do stand up comedy to audiences that appreciate her... umm...'humor'.

I'm not upset. I can careless. But you guys are taking things out of proportion. We have far more worries than a stupid show being canceled, such as climate change, and income inequality that continues to grow.

We will probably never see her again on tv.

OTOH, when a liberal says something adhorant, they rarely have to pay such severe consequences like the professor who called Barbara Bush a racist and was not fired.
So you don't agree with a company firing an employee that makes them look bad?

She has been in and out of therapy for years, from what I've read. Bi-Polar and drug issues.
I repeat - it was after Midnight and an hour long rant across several twitter accounts.

I don't watch much TV, didn't watch her show in the past and not the current show - although I was thinking about it as I thought All in the Family was one of the best written shows ever on TV.

That was a different time ...... we didn't have The Outrage of the Day and we did have real Education in schools.

Which is a shame. I used to like Rosanne. Perhaps they should never have revived the show.
It's a shame that all the cast and crew lose their jobs immediately because of one bad tweet, but these networks are petrified of the court of public opinion.

I only watched one episode of the reboot and that was enough for me. It seemed to have ABC's liberal prints all over it trying to sell a kid who dresses up as a girl being completely normal for the average American family.

I won't defend Roseanne. she was wrong. it is true, however, there is a double standard.

Joy reid is still working at MSNBC.

BuzzFeed’s Steven Perlberg wrote, “As it happens, it's been one month and Joy Reid's hacker — the one who made her old anti-gay blog posts slightly more anti-gay and manipulated the Wayback Machine — remains at large. This morning I asked MSNBC for an update in the investigation, but haven't heard back.”
