As a result of Roseanne's blatantly racist tweet this morning regarding a President Obama aide Valerie Jarrett.

Bad tweet, bad joke, just a dumb move.

Will probably have to do a Mel Gibson and just disappear for awhile.

ABC takes a hit though..

I've seen a bunch of the older shows and have seen a couple of the more recent ones. They all stink haha. I'm not sure that society is worse off that this below average show will be cancelled.

Also, Roseanne is just one of many racists in this country. I'm not sure why people are surprised by this stuff. We live in a country with many people that like to communicate how rotten they can be.

While I think Maher can be a big jerk, I don't see this as even a little bit comparable to Roseanne calling an African American an ape.

you donít see the similarity of Maher making fun of trumps skin color? How do you define racial bigotry then if it isnít that?

You think choosing to wear orange spray tan is the same as being born black? That's quite an impressive leap, I must admit.

If you don't see the contextual differences then you're being willfully obtuse. I'd be down with HBO dumping Maher, though. He's not the liberal darling you might think.

you.....you don't see a wee bit of difference in calling a white person "an ape" and a black person the same?

Come on man, your better than that.

Things Roseanne could have done to prevent this - not gotten all racist on Twitter in what (one assumes) was an inebriated moment.

If you don't see the difference between calling a black person that term and a white dude, i think were done with rational discussion here as a threshold matter.

comparing to apes and comparing to made up characters in a movie are 2 different things


I really don't think Roseanne meant it to be racist. That's my personal opinion. It came out looking that way. The character from planet of the apes, in my opinion , does not even resemble an ape. They look more like aliens.  It was a poorly thought out "insult comedy"

She tried to make a "roast" and it backfired
