I'm not fond of the climate where saying such unbelievably bigoted, racist things is deemed okay if you just say sorry.

If she wants to be a racist, fine, but she needs to keep that stuff off social media.

Last I knew she was living in Hawaii. Maybe her brain turned to lava. What a dumbass, she should have known what would happen, it's not 1986, you can't do humor like that now.

I think it's worse, really.

She attacked someone, fully unprovoked.

Trump was wandering about, saying hateful crap, and Kathy Griffin attacked him because of it.

I think she was wrong to do so, but yes, I think this tweet of Roseanne's was worse.

She's a RACIST. She has been pretty damned clear about it.

Kathy Griffin just made an incredibly stupid choice in her manner of protest.

And, she has had consequences because of it.

So, not sure why you're comparing them, but there you go.

What is it about VJ that bugs Roseanne to the point of hateful public comments?

Maybe she needs to change her medication.

I see the usual Trump disciples in here defending Rosanne. I just don't understand how they can possibly fail to understand why people think they are racist. It boggles the mind.

Roseanne is not a Conservative - never was a Conservative.
She is more Green Party than anything else, with a strong dose of Libertarian and certainly a Deplorable - but Deplorable really just means a person who didn't vote for the Presumptive Queen.

She did explain why she voted for Trump - Hollywood Reporter

Comedian? TV? Much ado about nothing IMO. I'm a lot more concerned about a POTUS continually firing people he's dubbed 'The Best'.

Big deal--she's got a rebooted tv sitcom. She's still a bozo.
It is also why much of his base likes her.

Some Twitter troll made a comment about how VJ helped Obama cover up for his alleged "lies" or something and she came back with a comment about VJ's appearance that was her usual racist crap.

There was no fight, no argument, no reason for her to say such a nasty thing. It was dropped quite casually.

Which pretty much means she meant it and she's a racist, but that's hardly a secret.
