Not the topic of this thread.

There will probably be some bottom-feeding network or cable channel, that will recognize that there are plenty of viewers out there, who have no sense of taste or decency.

Roseanne is a fool and she just ruined it for all of the cast. IF I were the president of ABC - I wouldn't want that Roseanne representing me either.


It's not the LEFT. It's the fault of Roseanne - period - full stop. Stop whining; it's no one's fault but her own. Such a fine line to walk - to appeal to the crazier of the MAGA set - yet not offend the person WHO SIGNS YOUR PAYCHECK.


How long do you think my employer would let me stay on if I represented his company in that manner?


Pfft. My heart bleeds.

They only pay a price when it is an extreme offense. Kathy Griffin's bit was so bad that the security service investigated her. It could have been seen as a threat on the president which is a crime. And what about all the disgusting crap that was said about Sarah Huckabee Sanders right to her face at that dinner? I don't recall anyone being fired over that.

I suspect that ABC was attempting to control content to appease the Trump cult since the show had become something of a favorite for deplorables. I only saw a couple episodes and couldn't figure out how it was supposed to be friendly to Trump. It seemed to show a family that drank the Trump koolaid only to realize that their life was still as messed up as ever.
True, but most of the people the show is about aren't smart enough to figure that out. Remember, these are the same idiots who attacked Chicago Cubs pitcher John Lester on the Twitter machine a couple of years ago because they though he was Lester Holt. Not a lot of triple-digit IQs in that bunch.

What "disgusting crap"? Can you give some examples?

You don't even know, do you? You just heard it, so it must be true.

I guess this means HBO will have to cancel Bill Maurer for calling Trump an orangutan, right?

apparently not since "Roseanne" was getting good ratings and they still canned the show.

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.
Don't see anyone celebrating.
But those who think Roseanne got what she deserved have spent far less time and energy on the topic than you, and a few others who claim "can careless."

It's up to them just like it was up to ABC what to do with Roseanne and up to MSNBC hat to do with Joy Reid. They're not required to do anything
