Well, the left is having another temper tantrum in the media and the latest casualty of their childish antics is Roseanne Barr and her hit television show “Roseanne”. Earlier today, ABC announced they were canceling the favorite show after Roseanne took to Twitter and made a comment that many on the left felt was “racially charged” about former Obama advisor, Valerie Jarret.
Here is more from CNBC:
ABC announced on Tuesday that it would cancel the hit sitcom “Roseanne” following “abhorrent” comments from the show’s star, Roseanne Barr, who had compared former Obama advisor Valerie Jarrett to an ape.
“Roseanne’s Twitter statement is abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values, and we have decided to cancel her show,” Channing Dungey, president of ABC Entertainment, said in a statement Tuesday.
In a since-deleted tweet, Barr said of Jarrett: “muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby=vj.”Critics immediately slammed Barr’s remark as racist. Likening black people to apes is an attack commonly used by racists. The Muslim Brotherhood, meanwhile, is an Islamist political group. Barr had apologized for her comments earlier in the day and said she would be refraining from using her Twitter account, which was still live at the time of publication.
