Liberal Hypocrisy: Rosanne Reboot Canceled after Rosanne Barr Tweet about Valerie Jarrett

ABC reboot Rosanne has been canceled after Roseanne Barr sent out a tweet comparing ex-Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett to the Planet of the Apes.


"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.

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 executive producer Barr attacked Valerie Jarrett, a senior adviser to former President Barack Obama, 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. I should have known better. Forgive me — my joke was in bad taste."

Walt Disney Co. CEO Bob Iger also weighed in on the decision to cancel Roseanne: "There was only one thing to do here, and that was the right thing," he tweeted."

While the tweet was dumb and guaranteed to produce consequences as mentioned, one could also state the liberal outrage was mostly faux. Liberal entertainers, writers, and others have consistently referred to both conservative blacks and whites in racist and derogatory tones. The is especially true for black comedians and use racism against whites and yet are lauded, and even give greater avenues for spewing their hate.

For instance, a black writer, Monica Judge used a "monkey reference" to refer to HUD Secretary Ben Carson in October of last year.


During the Bush administration constant derogatory racism references, we used on Condi Rice, and went unpunished by the media.

Some of these references were made by ABC's The View by castmate Whoopie Goldberg. In fact, more often racist comments are more often produced by the liberal entertainers than by anyone conservative. Again most the outrage is selective and hypocritical.
