They should have continued the show without Barr. Call it "Roseanne's Family" like NBC did with "Valerie" after Valerie Harper let the show.

She's an idiot for doing this. The revival was good, but she just couldn't keep her Trump pom-poms away and keep her mouth shut.

I personally did NOT enjoy the revival--not as much as the original, anyway--but she certainly did a lot to cast a light on The Deplorables. It's all good....she's probably gonna run for office in the fall anyways, and couldn't keep up both, right? Razz

Twitter/Facebook comments have cost a number of people their job.

In looking for what news item would have caused her to tweet about Valerie Jarrett, the most recent thing I see if a May 23rd mention of Jarrett and Bernie Sanders endorsing a Georgia candidate. But an article says that another social media poster, presumably nobody famous, accused Jarrett of helping Obama "hide a lot", and Barr was reacting to that. The other poster's comment was triggered by an online claim that Obama had spied on French presidential candidates.

I loved the old show, and loved the new show. Shame on this idiot bitch for ruining a great show, costing the network millions of dollars and TV ratings, and shame on her for putting a lot of people out of work including her cast mates and crew. She is however, a Trump supporter, and in the end, they’re all the same. Disgusting. I’ll miss the show, but bravo to ABC for cancelling her show. Roseanne just completely destroyed any career she had left. I cannot wait to hear Sara Gilberts comments about this on tomorrow episode of the Talk.

And no, they can’t keep the show going without Roseanne, calling it Roseanne’s Family like they did with Valarie Harper. That’s stupid. But IF they did, I have the perfect title. “Nosanne”

Quote:
The decision was made possible by something else—really someone else—who is not status quo: ABC Entertainment president Channing Dungey, the first black woman to be the head of a major broadcast network. We can never know for sure what would have happened if a white person were in charge of ABC at this moment, but it strikes me that they would have been much more likely to administer the aforementioned wrist slap, continuing to put up with the polarizing circus act that is Barr. Dungey, instead, saw Roseanne’s tweet comparing a black woman to an ape for what it was: too much, too far, enough.

The original run was a classic and is everything opposite of what this woman has become. She fucked up everybody's check though, so I know her costars are heated. It's the first check most of them (besides Goodman, Metcalf and Gilbert) have had in a while.

While I figured there would be some sort of penalty, I really didn't think they would cancel the show.

I mean, how often do you see the #1 rated scripted show on TV canceled?

However much ABC may be applauded by one half of the population, you know they are going to be pilloried by the other half. Also, ABC should've known something like this was going to happen. When it comes to being smart and knowing when to keep one's mouth shut, Roseanne is NOT going to be at the head of the class.

200 people out of work now is what I read.

As for the revival itself, it was OKAY. But just OKAY. It wasn't great and at times wasn't even funny. And I can't be the only one that thought both John Goodman and Laurie Metcalf were phoning it in.

I really feel bad for Sara Gilbert who was executive producing the show and was one of the driving forces of getting it back on the air. I would so love to hear the conversation between her and Roseanne NOW!

I think ABC jumped the gun too quickly. Maybe they should have continued the show without Barr.

While what you say is true, let's think about it for a minute. That means one half of the country is anti-racist tweets and one half is pro racist tweets.

So, fuck all of us.

Well, I was definitely thinking the "Half" thing was a bit off....I cannot believe Half of the American population thinks like her.

Re: her show's timely(?) political relevance....one commentator on PBS had already declared her Big Appeal to the Trumpians to be TVs biggest "Head Fake" yet....episode one declared her affinity for Trump, but what followed that was pretty noncommittal or neutral.

I was always impressed with how Roseanne had spent a few years busting balls around her original show, refusing to let "men" dictate its ups 'n downs. A firebrand feminist of sorts. Did that teach her nothing?? Confused Sometimes you just can't fix stupid. #deplorables

Trump breaks silence on Roseanne Barr scandal
Quote:
President Trump's first public reaction to the cancellation of "Roseanne" is a shot at Disney CEO Bob Iger.

What he didn't say is just as notable. He didn't say anything critical of Roseanne Barr's racist and conspiratorial tweets -- the comments that got her fired on Tuesday.

Instead, he tweeted this on Wednesday: "Bob Iger of ABC called Valerie Jarrett to let her know that 'ABC does not tolerate comments like those' made by Roseanne Barr. Gee, he never called President Donald J. Trump to apologize for the HORRIBLE statements made and said about me on ABC. Maybe I just didn't get the call?"

Trump and Barr have been supporters of each other for years. Trump called her up when "Roseanne" drew record ratings for its premiere in March. So that's why there was speculation that he might weigh in on the show's demise.

Rather than distancing himself from Barr's racist remarks, Trump jumped right into the argument about whether she was subjected to a double standard.

So because she's a racist twat, she cost her castmates their jobs as well as all the crew and writers jobs as well.

Because the reruns got pulled off the air as well, she cost her castemates money, as they will no longer get royalty checks for when the show airs in syndication. Here's hoping she gets blackballed and never seen again on TV. Talk about deplorable.

This is a repulsive person. She's not well. But she's also just a rotten human being. Good riddance to bad rubbish.

But I'm thinking with valuations of shit, like hit TV shows, and with the Weinstein fallout, movies, Netflix shows, continuing to climb to the stratosphere, I'm wondering how many more of these one person wrecking balls can happen before insurance company pressures force the networks and studios to first start passing on any properties with creatives attached who even have quirky reputations, let alone sketchy shit and baggage like Roseanne, and move onto replacing human actors with animations or computer generated actors. Not for every project, but just more projects, whenever they can. Because you start adding up what has gone down the drain in real money in the last year and it's staggering.

This almost reminds me of the uproar amongst conservatives shortly after the Tim Allen sitcom Last Man Standing, was cancelled, also by ABC, last year.

Before that show was cancelled, Allen (one of the few Republicans in show-biz) said in an interview on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, that being a Republican in Hollywood is "like 1930's Germany. You gotta be real careful around here, you know. You'll get beat up if you don't believe what everybody believes."

But at least the show was revived and will be making a comeback this fall on another network, FOX.

I wonder if this is actionable. If she could be sued by all those under contract who lost their jobs because of her actions. If she had been warned about social media in the past, I would think that the show being canceled would be considered a foreseeable consequence, and thus the loss of money real damages incurred because of her.

Conversely though, if she's a known loose cannon then could it be argued that anyone signing on to a project that relied on her was willingly taking the implosion risk?

One of Roseanne’s follow-up tweets:

Quote:
"guys I did something unforgiveable so do not defend me. It was 2 in the morning and I was ambien tweeting -- it was memorial day too -- i went 2 far & do not want it defended -- it was egregious Indefensible. I made a mistake I wish I hadn't but...don't defend it please.”

It makes me wonder if Joan Rivers was alive today, and Tweeted the same thing what Roseanne did, would Joan get away with it?

Found this article that talks about 3 shows - 7th Heaven, The Cosby Show, and Roseanne - that have had re-runs pulled because of scandals with a star. It says that Jessica Biel would be getting something over $100,000 a year from 7th Heaven royalties. Also mentions that even non-stars get (or in this case, lost) royalties.

It says that The Cosby Show had already been pulled from TV Land in 2014, and later Bounce TV and BET later stopped showing it (Bounce TV after the guilty verdict). But it is still shown on TV One in my area. Prior to The Cosby Show being pulled networks had pulled a 1990's show title Cosby.

Nothing shocking here....we all know, she's hardly 'alone' in her mindset

In Roseanne's defense, it hard to know the difference between racism that gets you fired and racism that gets you elected President of The United States.


Really. Cool

It would have been a good episode for the show

Rosanne's character makes bad joke/racist tweets, starts a firestorm in her community, has to face the real life repercussions of her family including DJ her son who is married to an African American woman serving overseas and her mix race Grand Daughter who Roseanne clearly loves. Then the backlash grows and outside forces attack Rosanne while others come to her defense, creating a whole new set of issues. And were forced to deal with question like 'What do you do when someone you love says or does something racist? What affect does that racism have on the people around that person? Can you say or do something racist but still be redeemable? Can people learn and change from these experiences? How do certain aspects of society use these kind of moments to promote their own agenda? What are the real life consequences?" Actually face and discuss why people say and do racist things in the context of a working class family.

The show was doing such a great job of shining a light on social issues and working class people and actually giving both sides of an issue humanity (Political leanings, oppiod addiction, having a gender fluid child, Arab-phobia, the actual affect of illegal immigration on working class Americans, unaffordable health care, divorce) it was the closest thing we've had to All In the Family in Years. It is a shame it had to end this way.

Bob Iger of ABC called Valerie Jarrett to let her know that “ABC does not tolerate comments like those” made by Roseanne Barr. Gee, he never called President Donald J. Trump to apologize for the HORRIBLE statements made and said about me on ABC. Maybe I just didn’t get the call?

and of course, it always comes back to him, because that is how the world revolves

I wonder if this is actionable. If she could be sued by all those under contract who lost their jobs because of her actions. If she had been warned about social media in the past, I would think that the show being canceled would be considered a foreseeable consequence, and thus the loss of money real damages incurred because of her.

Conversely though, if she's a known loose cannon then could it be argued that anyone signing on to a project that relied on her was willingly taking the implosion risk?


That's what I was thinking. I'm sure they were all on edge and had a team of prayer warriors. She was just too selfish
