Let ABC know how we feel about the firing of Roseanne Barr!
Her sitcom “Roseanne” returned in March after a two-decade absence to enormous ratings on ABC. Network executives were celebrating their strategy of appealing to wider swaths of the country after Donald J. Trump’s surprising election win and the president himself called Ms. Barr to congratulate her on the show’s large audience.
But on Tuesday, that all came crashing down. ABC abruptly canceled “Roseanne” hours after Ms. Barr, the show’s star and co-creator, posted a tweet about Valerie Jarrett, an African-American woman who was a senior adviser to Barack Obama throughout his presidency and considered one of his most influential aides. Ms. Barr wrote if the “muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby=vj.”
Ms. Barr later apologized, but it was too late. In announcing the show’s cancellation, ABC’s entertainment president, Channing Dungey, said in a statement that “Roseanne’s Twitter statement is abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values.”

The double standard in broadcasting is glaringly obvious
The double standard in broadcasting is glaringly obvious. On The View, Joy Behar is constantly bashing conservatives such as Mike Pence. Her show has not been cancelled. However Roseanne tweeted something for which her show is being cancelled. Behar apologized and she is still on air. On the other hand, Roseanne also apologized and her show is being cancelled. You cannot have it both ways.
As a consumer and as a TV watcher, I will not watch your programming. I am furious at the assault on conservative values, while protecting liberal values. This is America which has first amendment rights - freedom of speech. You condone and accept the liberal point of view and excuse any messages from that side, but you condemn the conservative point of view.
Did Roseanne tweet something she should not have. Absolutely, she did. But she took it down and apologized. Sounds just like Joy Behar. If you keep Joy, than you need to bring back Roseanne. Otherwise you are guilty of an intentional double standard.
Bring back Roseanne.
1 [email protected] You allow @TheView to rant and rave and apologize and won’t cancel that show. But you cancel @therealroseanne This is come kind of Double Standard. She apologized just like @JoyVBehar and should not be cancelled #BoycottABC #TCOT
2 [email protected] @JoyVBehar rants and raves and gets in trouble, apologizes, but you don’t cancel her show. But you cancel @therealroseanne who also apologized. Talk about a double standard for conservatives #ABCdoubleStandard #BoycottABC #TCOT
3 [email protected] makes a joke just like Michelle Wolf and it was okay for Wolf, but not for Barr. @ABC you are censoring Conservative voices. Shame on you #IstandWithRoseanne #ABCdoubleStandard #BoycottABC #BoycottABCsponsors #TCOT
4 We are starting to realize here what England is experiencing.... One-sided freedom of speech. As long as the liberal media control TV, news and social media it will continue to be all one-sided. We need to fight back. #IStandWithRoseanne #TCOT
5 Hypocritical of u to cancel @therealroseanne for what she tweeted, but not hold @jimmykimmel and @JoyVBehar and @TheView accountable for what they’ve said about women and christians. #CancelJimmyKimmel #CancelTheView #TCOT
6 [email protected] isn’t wrong! The left can attack the looks of anyone that disagrees with them, but if someone on the right makes a joke, they loser their minds! Double standard? #MAGA #IStandWithRoseanne #TCOT
7 [email protected] was not #Fired or #Canceled the show when he compared President #Trump to an #Orangutan. That's how #Hypocritical the #StalinistLleft is. No #RespectOurPresident #IStandWithRoseanne #TCOT
8 Apparently the 1st amendment is only liable for liberals to use or else you get called a racist. Seems like the US demise will be its' own people . This almost child like behaviour from liberals. #IStandWithRoseanne #TCOT
9 [email protected] it doesn’t matter what you tweet or say or apologize for, they were hunting for a reason to cancel your show because it shows what REAL Americans lives are like. #iStandWithRoseanne #TCOT
