Because this is the world we live in, ABC has finally decided to cancel the successful 'Roseanne' reboot after Roseanne Barr took to twitter to describe former Obama advisor Valerie Jarrett as “muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby=vj.”
Hours later, after getting dragged up and down Twitter by people living in the 21st century, Roseanne tweeted an apology. “I apologize to Valerie Jarrett and to all Americans,” she wrote. “I am truly sorry for making a bad joke about her politics and her looks. I should have known better. Forgive me - my joke was in bad taste.”
But it was too late. “Roseanne’s Twitter statement is abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values, and we have decided to cancel her show,” ABC’s entertainment president, Channing Dungey, said in a statement.
On Tuesday, before she apologized, Ms. Barr got into it with former first daughter Chelsea Clinton after referring to her as “Chelsea Soros Clinton,” a reference to George Soros, the billionaire liberal donor who is is a favorite target of conservative critics.
So yeah. America, am I right?
