I think it's hypocritical she was the first person to get offensive over Roseanne's racist comment when she constantly makes fun of white people in her comedy acts. Do you or others support Wanda? If so, what makes her racist behavior different than Roseanne's? Is it because it's a minority bashing white and that somehow seems acceptable in this day in age? Personally, two wrongs don't make a right so I consider both Wanda and Roseanne wrong with their behaviors.

I don't watch The Gong Show, but I read that Ken Jeong was on there last year and told every contestant he wasn't giving them a fair score because they weren't Asian. Apparently Regina Hall got so offended by Ken's racist behavior she actually told one contestant if they were Asian, she would have marked them down to spite Ken's comments. Now why aren't people making a big deal out of Wanda or Ken's racist behavior? Better yet, why is ABC treating Ken with special treatment to still continue with The Gong Show unlike Roseanne with her show?

Let's discuss Jimmy Kimmel. Now remember when Ted Danson went blackface... some time ago (we don't need to identify how many years ago), he received so much backlash stating racism. Why does Jimmy get to do what Ted Danson did only in Jimmy's case he actually mimics black athletes in his comedy skit. Why isn't that considered racist? Why aren't people judging Wanda, Ken, and Jimmy harshly like Roseanne has encountered or Ted Danson during that time? I'm curious when this whole crap against Roseanne starts being fair and justified so that all celebrities regardless of political views are treated equally. This whole picking and choosing who to crucify creates double standards and division among people.
The answer is very simple....Roseanne was a Trump supporter so she had to go down. I don't believe this was a race thing at all, but a direct attack by the left to destroy one of their own for supporting what they despise most and they are getting more rabid every day about it.

Well, we knew she was gonna die. If she has no creative control, that means she can't ever come back, unless it's twisted of course if it's some kind of alternative/twisted reality like a good chunk of the original show was. It's very easy to have her die to since she was going in for knee surgery in the finale. I think we all know that's probably how she's gonna die.

I personally think a lot of people like those comedians you mentioned get away with racism because Hollywood is more forgiving of them and more likely to give them the benefit of the doubt because they're liberal. It's a sad reminder that media bias exists.

There's no doubt what Roseanne has done wrong, but I will agree with her and say she was directly targeted because she supports Trump. I found ABC hypocritical in many ways for their actions because they tolerated her views in the past but it just really shocked me when they cancelled the show for it. I don't think Roseanne meant it to be racist, but ABC just had to jump the gun even after she apologized. I mean, it's all done and over now but I think the show is going to carry on for quite a few seasons with this new spin-off.

I think if an entertainer offends you for whatever reason, you simply should not watch. You are expressing your opinion of them by not watching and/or patronizing them.

But, they knew she was a Trump supporter when they green lighted the reboot, right?

Yes, but they also knew her history and they knew she'd slip up and say something "offensive" causing her firing and Sara Gilbert to step up as the show's front runner.

I'm not interested at all in the re-reboot. The first reboot was bad enough. I'll just stick with the original series.

I hate that the reboot was canned.....but ABC ASKED Roseanne to stay off of Twitter because they know her. She refused. Had she complied, she'd probably still have a show now.

And what Donald Trump Jr. did by jumping on the bandwagon with James Woods making that sexist comment about Chelsea Handler doesn't make what Samantha Bee did that much worse. If you want to crucify people for their actions, please be fair to crucify everyone that acts in that manner. Picking and choosing who to judge like the extremists are doing with Roseanne instead of the other celebrities that act in that manner doesn't make your case any stronger.

I agree with you. If ABC is going to allow Jimmy, Wanda, and Ken to continue making money off their network even though they display far worse acts of racism, it comes down to politics. That's the only difference between them and Roseanne.

I'm going further with not just the entertainer, but the network as well. I don't plan to watch anything on ABC, including The Connors. ABC allows other celebrities to be racist and don't make a big deal out of it. It's hypocritical to punish one person for behavior that 3 or more others are doing. Personally I think Roseanne should have sued ABC. There's evidence ABC allows Jimmy and Ken to continue with their work after being racist on the network. ABC doesn't mind them trying to divide people and cause hatred in the world. Roseanne's termination was not a justice action. It was a vendetta for her being a Trump supporter. If ABC really wants to get rid of racists, then a lot more celebrities would be out of a job on that network.

I don't believe she is either. I think she's one of the many extremist in the world that takes politics and her opinions too seriously. She was trying to be funny but in the end her joke was racist and offensive. She could have described Valerie in any other term than the choice she picked. She did this to herself and while I'm glad some form of punishment was done, I wish it was like this for every celebrity who thinks they can spread hate and get away with it.

Excellent point. And you are well within your rights to do so.
