Today marks a sad day for the American patriot, who had been reveling in the conservative awakening of our great nation in the year 2018.
Sparked by the immense love and support shown to candidate Trump in his battle against corrupt liberal lunatic Hillary Clinton, this nation of freedom-lovers is on track to make America great again, as evidenced by a number of trends in our society. Not only do we have the #MeToo movement exuding a strictly constitutional view of equality throughout our nation’s workplaces, but we are experiencing a number of enormously important pieces of pop culture turning ever so slightly to the right.
Tim Allen comes to mind, as his popular television series “Last Man Standing” has been revived from a near death experience after viewers demanded that the hit show return to television. Allen himself has been ecstatic about the news, even going so far as to rile up the liberal media with a tease about the coming subject matter on the show.
We’ll give you a hint: It rhymes with huns.
Similarly, Roseanne Barr had recently returned to television to revive her hit show “Roseanne” – a conservative take on the American middle class. After slaying in the ratings and recalibrating the national popular culture’s political balance, Roseanne done goofed.
Barr is notorious for tweeting about pro-Trump conspiracy theories and other controversial topics. This week she repeatedly attacked prominent Democrats.
In one of the tweets, she wrote, “Muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby=vj.”
Barr was responding to a comment about Valerie Jarrett, a top former aide to President Obama. She replied to CNN reporter Andrew Kaczynski and said it was “a joke.”
As outspoken and controversial as Roseanne has been, the tweet itself comes off as a cringe-y attempt at “edgy” humor that carried more malice than merriment.
It was ugly and uncalled for, especially given all of the other ways in which Roseanne could have disparaged Jarrett. (Trust us, there’s plenty of ammo to be found).
Now, due to Barr’s misstep, ABC is canceling Roseanne.
ABC canceled its hit sitcom “Roseanne” on Tuesday after the show’s biggest star, Roseanne Barr, went on a racist Twitter rant.
“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 in a statement.
The cancellation was a shock in Hollywood. The revival of “Roseanne” premiered to huge ratings just three months ago.
Pre-production was already underway on a second season, which was scheduled for Tuesdays at 8 p.m. this fall.
When Barr’s racist tweets caught fire early Tuesday, ABC went silent for several hours.
Unlike Last Man Standing, however, we don’t believe anyone will want to touch Roseanne Barr and her controversy any time soon.
After the incident, Barr herself has told the world that she will be leaving Twitter.
Roseanne, (the show), was poised to be the crown jewel of the MAGA movement in many ways, reflecting both a time and mindset that reminds us of an era when Americans weren’t so politically hostile…a time when we could laugh through our differences. Roseanne, the comedian, however, had a different idea.
