Does anyone else think this whole Roseanne thing might be a ploy?

Seems very heavy-handed to me. An old sitcom gets revived, to great acclaim. The star aligns herself with the political right wing, and then makes an incredibly obvious racist gaffe on social media.

Who really thinks Roseanne is that stupid? Who thinks she might have been put up to it, and had this planned all along?

Re: Does anyone else think this whole Roseanne thing might be a ploy?

Haven't watched any of the revival since I quit watching network TV 10 or more years ago.

My wife likes the reruns of the old version.

I would rather stick a needle in my eye than watch them.

Re: Does anyone else think this whole Roseanne thing might be a ploy?

Have not watched the reboot. What she said was wrong and completely racist.....and just dumb. Its who she has always been so no need for ABC to be shocked by what she brings to the table.......

The hypocrisy of ABC and Disney is the true comedy of this latest scandal....From the President of ABC Entertainment: "Roseanne's Twitter statement is abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values, and we have decided to cancel her show."
There was only one thing to do here, and that was the right thing."

Go back to last week when ESPN/Disney re-hired Keith Olbermann......who likes to share this repugnant twitter commentary...."@Potus can go fuck yourselves, you racist Nazi fucks."

This is the same Disney/ESPN that stated this about racist Jemele Hills tweets about calling the President a white supremacist....."Jemele Hills comments do not represent the position of ESPN. We have addressed this with Jemele."

So which is it Disney/ABC/ESPN.....You seem to be blatantly contradicting your position on what values you are trying to defend......

What a joke.......

Exactly

Racism and dumbassery are not one way streets.

If what Roseanne said was offensive and fireable, which it was, the same MUST apply to KO and JH.

KO has made a career out of being an outspoken left wing nut.

Re: Does anyone else think this whole Roseanne thing might be a ploy?

So this one from Canada was a tad jealous Rosanne was getting all of the calculated negative attention......so her and her writers decided to go all in this week in order to boost ratings and relevance........

"You know, Ivanka, that's a beautiful photo of you and your child, but let me just say, one mother to another, do something about your dad's immigration practices, you feckless c***!"

As a standard practice, once your PR intended goals with your soul selling lack of ethics has reached maximum capacity due to your vile comments, you come out and apologize.......as if that does nothing more than add at least another 6+ hours of additional PR until someone else does a rinse, repeat tomorrow.......

What is acceptable today to say on TV and then print and highlight on the "news" 24 hour cycle is beyond comprehension. We are not that far from broadcasting live murders on the national news if it helps with ratings, generates cash and promotes another false leader of the people when in reality all it does is further the decay of our society........ God pray for our kids....the way things are headed they will need all the help they can get in the not to distant future......

I don't think tight censorship of broadcast/cable media is incompatible with the first amendment anymore. There are plenty of places to act like an ass on the Web these days. Let Samantha and the rest of them do their trolling there. Broadcast media should be for shit like sports and the legitimate arts.

To be fair, the comparison was accurate
Racism is in the eye of the accuser.
