ABC cancels Roseanne reboot over tweets


Joy Reid and all the other left-wing lowlifes say the most vile things, destroy people’s lives, and get the brass ring. Keith Olbermann, the hysterical leftist who has called President Trump a Nazi and a white supremacist, just got hired by ESPN. But if you say something that the left considers offensive and you’re not a leftist, you’ll lose everything. The Democrats are swiftly transforming this once-free nation into a vicious totalitarian state governed by relentless and unforgiving thought police.

And George Soros admitted to confiscating property from Jews during World War II. How can he deny it now? Steve Kroft said: “You helped in the confiscation of property from Jews.” Soros responded: “That’s right.”

“US network ABC cancels Roseanne reboot over racist tweets,” New York Post, May 29, 2018:

ROSEANNE Barr’s sitcom Roseanne has been cancelled over the comedian’s racist tweets despite huge ratings for the reboot.

A statement by TV network ABC Entertainment slammed the comedian’s comments.

“Roseanne’s Twitter statement is abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values, and we have decided to cancel her show,” ABC president Channing Dungey said in a statement.

The axe fell on Roseanne despite the reboot of the sitcom being the highest rated show in the US this season. Re-runs of the original have also been axed.

Australian networks Channel Ten and ELEVEN have cut the show effective immediately, despite not all episodes of the revival having aired yet.

Media giant Viacom is also reportedly pulling original Roseanne reruns and will no longer air episodes of the show on its Paramount Network, TV Land and CMT channels, The Wrap reported. The change will take effect tomorrow.

The fallout started after the comedian went off on a bizarre Twitter rant attacking people including Barack Obama’s former senior adviser Valerie Jarrett, who is African-American.

She said the long-time, well respected political figure was what you would get if Islamist organisation Muslim Brotherhood and Planet of the Apes “had a baby.”

“Muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby = vj,” she wrote.

Barr’s tweet was in response to a news article about Jarrett’s alleged involvement in helping cover up CIA spying on the President of France.

Barr has since apologised for the offensive tweet and said she was leaving Twitter (as of this morning her account is still active). She also issued an apology “to Valerie Jarrett and all Americans” for her “bad joke”.

“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,” she tweeted.

Ms Jarrett has also addressed the scandal, saying it should be a “teaching moor brain too fast for fingerment about everyday racism in America.”

“I’m fine,” she said. “I’m worried about all the people out there who don’t have a circle of friends and followers who come right to their defense.”

Barr fired off even more offensive tweets, which included a false claim that former US president Bill Clinton’s daughter Chelsea ​is married to billionaire George Soros’ nephew.

She repeated a false rumour that the billionaire investor, who is Jewish and survived the holocaust, is a Nazi sympathiser and assisted the organisation during World War II​ despite the fact he was 13.

She said he was a “Nazi who turned in his fellow Jews 2 be murdered in German concentration camps & stole their wealth”.


A spokesman for Soros responded in a statement: “George Soros survived the Nazi occupation of Hungary as a 13 year old child by going into hiding and assuming a false identity with the help of his father, who managed to save his own family and help many other Jews survive Holocaust,” the statement read.

“He did not collaborate with the Nazis. He did not help round up people. He did not confiscate anybody’s property. Such false allegations are insulting to the victims of the Holocaust, to all Jewish people, and to anyone who honors the truth.

They are an affront to Mr. Soros and his family, who against the odds managed to survive one of the darkest moments in our history.”…
