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?

It only lasted for one season on Fox, but “Pitch” had potential. Starring Kylie Bunbury, it was about the first woman to play in Major League Baseball

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.”



Manufacturer of Ambien tweets in response:

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

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
