DRUDGE REPORT: ROSEANNE CANCELLED
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).
Roseanne's Problem: She needs to direct her fire where the left wants it...
Powerline: ABC Cancels Roseanne
Lem's Place: Roseanne Replies to ABC
Weasel Zippers: Jarrett: 'A Teaching Moment'
The Feral Irishman: What's All The Fuss About?
Victory Girls: Roseanne's Rebooted Show Cancelled
Legal Insurrection: Roseanne's show cancelled over Jarrett tweet
AoSHQ: David French not so quick to defend free speech when it involves Roseanne and Connecting The Dots!
Reason: Roseanne's Racist Tweet Gets Her Show Cancelled and Liberals killed Roseanne, Conservatives crushed NFL (tit for tat)
Instapundit: Roseanne says fans should not defend her, The End of Roseanne, Disney vs. Roseanne (who's more repulsive) and Roseanne's show cancelled
TOM: Mentally Ill Democrat Senate Candidate in Maryland Tweets too... and In The Mailbox 5.29.18: Don Surber: Roseanne gets the last laugh on ABC/Disney
If only Roseanne had this training before this weekend...

"Comparing a black person to an ape is an act of racism. Barr was not being anti-PC or edgy. Barr wasn’t poking the “snowflakes” or pushing the boundaries of free speech. She publicly attacked a black woman with a racist slur."— 'Sources Say' is Greek for 'Fake News' (@NolteNC) May 29, 2018

I have a long history of calling out racists, even within my own sect and party. @therealroseanne is no racist.— Ali Alexander (@ali) May 29, 2018
I'm serious. Some are asking if this is my hill to die on? Damn right.
We need truth, context and to be able to say something is insensitive.
Our oligarchs hate us.
I know the entertainment industry is filled with small minded leftists, but imagine for a moment that over the holiday weekend, you tweeted a picture of Bush McChimpy Hitler, and Tuesday morning, when you came back to work, your boss told you to clean out your desk. #Roseanne— Mike a.k.a.

Interesting to see the crossover between people who thought the NFL banning kneeling for the anthem was a First Amendment debacle, but think ABC didn't raise any First Amendment issues by firing Roseanne. (/1)— Ben Shapiro (@benshapiro) May 29, 2018

The ABC executive that cancelled Roseanne is the same person who cancelled Last Man Standing and is married to Susan Rice 😡😣😡 pic.twitter.com/btlJ7jt9k3
