Anyone who is somewhat familiar with comedian Rosanne Barr, knows she’s extremely outspoken, is a fervent Trump supporter, and is a believer in all sorts of right wing conspiracy series. This morning however she went on a Twitter rampage that (and I can’t believe I’m saying this), outdoes Trump’s most offensive tweets. I’m not going to repeat any of them because they’re vile and make me sick to my stomach, but if you haven’t heard about them and want to see them, just Google her. As I was writing this post, the news just broke that the Disney-owned ABC has canceled the second season of the successful Rosanne reboot. To say I’m overjoyed is an understatement. Racism in the U.S. is running rampant and the repugnant individuals who espouse these beliefs have been given carte blanche by the Trump administration to say and do whatever they want. Yes I believe in the First Amendment, but not when it comes to hate speech that serves to encourage violence against minorities. So, while I wish they had never brought back Rosanne to begin with, kudos to ABC for sending a quick and decisive message that racism and bigotry won’t be tolerated even by big name stars.
