As Twitchy told you, ABC has axed “Roseanne” following the star’s despicable, racist tweet about Valerie Jarrett. Because her dressing up like Hitler and baking Jewish gingerbread men apparently didn’t quite reach the threshold for offensiveness.
Well anyway, Disney/ABC execs are patting themselves on the back for having the courage to do “the right thing”:
From Channing Dungey, President of ABC Entertainment: "Roseanne's Twitter statement is abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values, and we have decided to cancel her show."
There was only one thing to do here, and that was the right thing.

They’re not fooling anyone who’s been paying attention to Roseanne’s decades of unhinged lunacy. But you know who is buying their crap? Chris Cillizza:

Yes, folks. That’s real. He actually wrote that.
? You’re a clown.

Because Chris Cillizza is a shameless hack, that’s why.
They could've done it by not indulging her in the first place. This ALL was known to them. She's been doing this for YEARS.

Are you saying ABC (and all who worked with her) just now discovered who Roseanne is after all these decades?

Is that what they did when they hired a known nutter with a history of saying terrible things? Swing and a miss, champ.

Speaking of swings and misses, did Cillizza forget that Keith Olbermann just got an expanded role at ABC’s sister company ESPN? Because that kinda makes ABC’s moral line look a little blurry.
They hired Keith Olbermann. So moral.

Someday, Chris will realize what a sad excuse for a journalist he is and make a concerted effort to dig himself out of the enormous grave he’s in.
Eh, who’re we kidding?
This is your brain on drugs. And bottomless, ruinous sycophancy: https://t.co/tPAY817HlJ
