Roseanne: “Not Repugnant According to Disney”: Olbermann, Behar, Kimmel

Roseanne Barr returned to Twitter this morning, to offer her apologies to the production team of her hit show and at the same time take a soft swipe at ABC owner Disney for their ‘double standard’ which saw other comedians and commentators take similar swipes without any follow-up.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">I think Joe Rogan is right about ambien. Not giving excuses for what I did(tweeted) but I&#39;ve done weird stuff while on ambien-cracked eggs on the wall at 2am etc -</p>&mdash; Roseanne Barr (@therealroseanne) <a href="">May 30, 2018</a></blockquote>

The hugely successful reboot of her show was canceled after Ms. Barr wrote on Twitter, “Muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby,” when talking about Obama adviser Ms. Valerie Jarrett, who is African-American.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">. <a href="">@THEHermanCain</a> on ABC canceling <a href=";ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#Roseanne</a>: “I believe they were looking for a reason to cancel <a href=";ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#Roseanne</a> and here&#39;s why. Even though the show was a ratings success, forces within ABC didn&#39;t like the fact that her conservative defense of certain things was so popular.&quot; <a href=""></a></p>&mdash; Trish Regan (@trish_regan) <a href="">May 29, 2018</a></blockquote>

With one tweet, which Ms. Barr blames on a medicine’s reaction at 2 am, she lost her job and destroyed her own show. Furthermore, any honest depiction of working-class Americans on TV now looks further away than ever as many predict Hollywood will use this to swing even further left.

After the online outrage over Netflix handing the Obama couple a $50 million contract to program what the 125 million users worldwide will see, they can now use Roseanne’s tweet to point out that they are correct.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Kimmel mocked Melania’s accent.<br><br>Joy Behar called Pence mentally ill for having faith in God.<br><br>Bill Maher makes countless racist comments.<br><br>Keith Olbermann calls Trump “a F*cking NAZI!”<br><br>ABC: *crickets*<br><br>Roseanne: “Ape.”<br><br>ABC: “YOU’RE FIRED YOU HATEFUL, RACIST, TRUMP SUPPORTER!”</p>&mdash; Jack Murphy (@RealJack) <a href="">May 30, 2018</a></blockquote>

<script async src="" charset="utf-8"></script>.

However, many of Roseanne’s supporters were quick to point out that other celebrities have said far worse things without ABC even lifting a finger.

Related coverage:

Ms. Joy Behar mocked the Christian faith of Vice-President Mike Pence on The View without any problem.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="tl" dir="ltr">Not repugnant according to <a href="">@WaltDisneyCo</a> <a href=""></a></p>&mdash; Angus T. Kirk (@angusparvo) <a href="">May 29, 2018</a></blockquote>

<script async src="" charset="utf-8"></script>

Mr. Jimmy Kimmel made fun of First Lady Melania Trump’s accent whilst reading a children’s book during the Easter Egg roll, no issue. And Mr. Keith Olbermann got an even bigger contract after he had called the President of the US a ‘Fucking Nazi.’

lot of the double standards going on.

A leftist can be as vile and ugly as they want. They never have too worry about repercussions. If you lean right in anyway you better tow the line. Bull

OK, I strongly support her realistic show concept depicting what a MAJORITY of Real America feels, says, holds as morals and standards.

But just because the Liberals, snowflakes, Anti-FA socialists, and general far left A-holes go low, very very low, is no reason to do the same.

Yes I have seen just as mean and even worse remarks openly stated w/o challenge by the Deep Left . For Example on the same network: The JB View Anti-Christian comment just some months ago.

An YES the Right is held to a Higher Double Standard, because we are the ones demanding a HIGHER Moral Standard of Decency.

Because I demand better I have to take exception to the The Planet of the Apes remark.

NOTE: However, because the show is so extremely popular. I expect FOX, or another Network will pick up the show or have their own similar show version.

Maybe a petition drive to get FOX to take on the show?… Hint hint hint….

ABC, NBC, DISNEY, CBS, MSNBC, CNN, and even FOX, and all left wing communist totalitarian media—They do not want you to know the truth, because then you will realize they lied, and how criminal they are, and that they are all PEDOPHILE Drugged out, LOSERS who traffic, enslave women and children, rape, torture and murder them for FUN…Yes, that is how they get their jollies…Is that who you want to be associated with? People who traffic DRUGS and CHILDREN? That is why they are against the border wall. Those children supposedly separated from families? No most of them are STOLEN from their families and sold into sex trafficking rings…that is what they don't want stopped. They are Genocidal as well. They cause wars and hold countries hostage. They don't want you to know the truth. But it's too late for them. They are LOSING, we are WINNING and they are in death throes, trying to stop our voices because there will be a day they will not be able to walk down the street.
