Quote:ABC in a stunning move has decided to cancel its Roseanne revival following star Roseanne Barr's racist tweet Tuesday.
"Roseanne's Twitter statement is abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values, and we have decided to cancel her show," ABC Entertainment president Channing Dungey said Tuesday.

Early Tuesday, star, head writer and exec producer Barr attacked former President Obama White House adviser Valerie Jarrett in a since-deleted tweet in which she said "Muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby=vj." Barr subsequently apologized: "I apologize to Valerie Jarrett and to all Americans. I am truly sorry for making a bad joke about her politics and her looks.

That's gonna hurt. It was one of their most popular shows.

What politics from both sides wants to teach us is that things are never complex. If you have your little package and something doesn't fit into that package, You don't know what to make of it so you want to dismiss it or then you will have to do the work of reconsidering your assumptions. - Michael Malice

So the word "racist" quite officially has a new meaning, according to hollywoodreporter.com..?
Because I can't find anything racist in the tweets in question.
Nothing.
Not 1 syllable.

That's very cool. I hope it will be here too before too long. Meanwhile I don't think my boss would approve

Still all very hush hush here, but this area is descried as "self sufficient" in the news. The health ministers have already stated the laws are a waste of time and it's harmless, the lawmakers on the other hand are sucking down a big pharma protein money shake to keep the status quo. It scares the pharmaceutical, alcohol and tobacco industrial complex, and until recently they brainwashed the kids at school to believe pot was like heroin.
That changed with the advent of internet and most people under 55 speak and read English well, but there are a lot of adults that would rather cling to a lie than admit they had the wool pulled over their eyes.

Still deep underground here, you have to know the right people and the penalties are harsh. I go to Spain and the Netherlands every year just to keep myself from going insane.  chuckle.gif

I had read if you go there on vacation forget trying to score unless you know someone.

I would not want to end up in any trouble there.  uhoh.gif  damned.gif

Looks like Fox is talking about picking it up except that now all of the actors immediately tried to distance themselves from her and they would need an all new cast. Well, the younger cast members at least. The older cast members have been silent.
