Most of you have probably seen Roseanne Barr’s tweets from time to time. Much like Donald Trump’s tweets they are unavoidable if your follow a broad range of people on Twitter. They are both horrendous, racist, and misogynist.
Today’s targets for Roseanne included muslims, jews, Chelsea Clinton (one of her favorite targets) and Valerie Jarrett. Jarrett was one of Obama’s closest advisers during his term in the White House.
There was other stuff about Muslims and Islam on her timeline today. I suppose that evens out the photos of her dressed as Hitler holding a pan of burnt gingerbread men in front of an oven. Roseanne hates pretty much everyone except her hero, the current POTUS. They have a lot in common.
The thing is Roseanne is on ABC. ABC is owned by Disney. ABC is the most “family friendly” show of the four major over the air networks. Disney is not happy. It only took them a few hours to cancel the whole damn show.
Roseanne has had some mental health issues in the past. Perhaps she needs some help with her issues. But never fear Trump supporters, the racist, misogynistic, xenophobic, hateful core of the Trump supporters is going nuts on Twitter over the injustice of it all. What about free speech? This is unfair! Much like Trump these supporters don’t understand the constitution. Roseanne still has the freedom to say all the horrible things that come out of her mouth. That is guaranteed her by the constitution. What she is not guaranteed is the right to hate speech without consequences. Her consequences were swift.
At last check, she had not left Twitter.
