ABC News today cancelled the reborn Roseanne show over a comment she made towards former Obama Staffer Valerie Jarrett. However the network had no comment when we asked about Jimmy Kimmel’s making fun of how First Lady Melania Trump speaks.
Here is the statement from ABC
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.— Roseanne Barr (@therealroseanne) May 29, 2018
Conservatives quickly took to Twitter, whom are the reason for Roseanne’s ratings success to defend her.
Retweet if YOU WANT @FOXTV to pick up my friend @therealroseanne’s Hit Show! #FreedomOfSpeech #1A @FoxNews @POTUS @realDonaldTrump @seanhannity @HappeningNow @kanyewest #FreeThinker pic.twitter.com/8rwMYmpag3— Oliver McGee PhD MBA (@OliverMcGee) May 29, 2018
I'm calling on @ABCNetwork @Disney to uphold their "standards" by firing @JoyVBehar for calling Christians mentally ill. You can't treat @therealroseanne one way because she supports @realDonaldTrump & allow Joy Behar to remain employed. #BoycottABC #StandWithRoseanne #Roseanne pic.twitter.com/5Y3FyhQ1OE— Saltwater🏝❤️🅿️atricia 🇺🇸🇮🇹 (@TrumpGirlStrong) May 29, 2018
