Roseanne's Show Cancelled Over Planet of the Apes Comment


Roseanne, you should have stopped after your May 28 Memorial Day tweet...

I am no fan of Valerie Jarrett (her family does have ties to Communists and the Muslim Brotherhood), but Roseanne's Jarrett tweet is not particularly funny. Valerie Jarrett's problem is not her looks or her race, but her politics. The Planet of the Apes reference is racist in a stupid, sophomoric, idiotic sort of way. It has a drunken rant quality to it (update: Roseanne claims to have been taking Ambien). It is the sort of thing one might say and the other side gets all gleeful (rather than truly offended) on how they can use it against you. And use it they did.  

I am not sure what triggered Roseanne's tweeting, but now her show is cancelled (despite her apology). Of course, ABC/Disney does have very high standards to meet! ABC is also very sensitive to monkey comments (and yes I know apes are not monkeys).

If only Roseanne had this training before this weekend...

AoSHQ/J.J. Sefton: Tyrants and Distorted Meaning


  1. "Take your stinking paws off my Twitter account, you damn dirty ape!"
    Sorry! Channeling my inner Heston there!

  2. The hypocrisy issue is a real killer here as Proof shows.

    My guess is, inappropes or not, the show will be back. Disney, and I do not mean Walt, is one of the worst for pushing the Agenda.


I welcome all legitimate comments. Keep it civil. Spam will be deleted. Thanks.
