Roseanne Barr/the TV Series

I watched the TV series Roseanne when I was a kid and I still watch the re-runs, it was and is a great show.

In my opinion, she should not have been fired from the new show. Someone could have told her to monitor what she posts on social media!

She is a comedian, they make jokes! She is also a Scorpio! Scorpios are blunt, scarcastic, comical.

I am a Capricorn and I got in trouble a few times in grade school for writing things about some class mates.

And I like the new show the Conners. I however am unhappy that Roseanne's character was killed off the show, so I will watch the show sometimes. I will buy DVD of the Roseanne series and watch that!

She's a Republican Right Wing racist and she got exactly what she deserved.

I think a lot of people feel that way about her. I do not like politics/care about politics. I love the celebrities. And the people in America need to be less serious about things, laugh more and communicate more(the brain needs to be active, it promotes good health). I think she is Jewish and I do not think that she is a racist.

She is Jewish; she is a racist; and she was the one that attacked a political figure so she's the one who made her racism about politics.

I do agree we need to laugh more. But we cannot ignore racism.

I will follow her on social media and she has a YouTube channel. I have been off social media for over a year now. Everyone needs to take a break from social media from-time-to-time. Especially the people in Politics!

ABC begged her to cool it down on twitter, she refused. The New show is a marginal improvement without her, though it pales to the first five seasons of the original.

If she could have controlled her mouth, she would still be on the show... razz I don't remember her views being extremist or racist during the original series, but one never knows... Too bad, I really liked the original show and her character on it.

She wasn't in the past at least not openly in the public. Money, time, and through the veil of free speech thinks racist things are okay to say. And I love the original Roseanne show. And I liked her stand up too. It's that she showed no real remorse for her views-meaning she doesn't care about what she did.

It is very Fucked Up that people in America Do Not Have Freedom Of Speech! As long as she was not saying negative things on the show, what she said on social media should not be reflected on her job on TV!

But it does count when the actor is reviving a major character from the past whose views are not in alignment with the views the actor is currently spouting on social media... And from what I recall Roseanne the person seemed to be pretty liberal back in those days... Don't know what happened, but in this case, evidently it DID matter what she said on social media.

Its not an American thing, its a cause & effect thing. When you spew hateful rhetoric garbage - in this day & age where everything is monitored by the public no less - you'd be naive to think that it won't be held against you, as it should. She had full freedom to say whatever dumb racist shit she said and people in reaction had the full freedom to look for other options to choose from beside her show & thats exactly what they did, bravo for them. How her show got cancled etc can't be blamed on anyone but herself. Frankly, the only remorse I feel is toward the cast & the crew who lost their jobs because of her idiotic remarks. So, fuck Roseanne. I'll say this though,,,,,I miss seeing Laurie Metcalf who I think is FAR superior in talent than Roseanne.

The sad thing is that the cast on the original show had such great comaraderie and the story lines for that time were compelling. I felt like the first few episodes of the new show held promise...until Roseanne opened her mouth. What I don't get is that she opened her mouth many times during the original series (and some of her comments were controversial, gawd knows)...but I didn't hear this current racist and conservative stuff erupt... WTF?!! whofarted

And, yes, Laurie Metcalf is very talented...and knows to keep her mouth shut. Not saying that she has any of Roseanne's current views; I'm racking this up with Kanye West's recent MAGA hat power Trump crusade! razz lol

Never did like her, she always came across unnecessarily mean spirited & malicious in interviews which left a bad taste. The remarks didn't come as a surprise however the reason why her remakrs ticked people off now than ever could've been credited to the times we live in, politically too. Views have changed and certain things aren't easily swept under a rug anymore, even if they were wrapped in a punchline. I definitly agree with your remark about the chemistry of the cast, a big part of that goes to the team effort and of course the show's writers.

One of her first apologizes was : I was on Ambien. (So-NOT an apology.) So much that the makers of Ambien tweeted to her that Racism is NOT a side effect of ambien.

Another apology: Was Roseanne yelling," I thought the bitch was white!

She is Jewish; she is a racist; and she was the one that attacked a political figure so she's the one who made her racism about politics.

I do agree we need to laugh more. But we cannot ignore racism.

A lot of people though did not know she was partially black though.

Well in the world of Americas 1 Drop Rule, where some try to demand that Meghan Markel is Black,...

a lot of people did not know she was partially black. She could be Laura Bush's sister

It would be nice if Darlene and David get back together in The Conners. John G from the Big Bang Theory(Taurus). He and Sarah always had great chemistry! Also, the conners won the lottery back in the day, why are they still poor?

Roseanne can say whatever she wants on social media. And still does. Here is her Twitter account https://twitter.com/therealroseanne No one has stopped her from being able to communicate anything she wants, in any way she wants.

That doesn't mean there won't be consequences. As I'm sure you know, you can yell "FIRE!" in a crowded theater but if you do, there will be consequences.

Free Speech is alive and well in America. You or anyone else can say anything you want. But there are consequences. I doubt that you would post racist or hateful stuff somewhere under your real name because for one reason, you know that if your employer sees it, you'd get fired.

Or flip it around. Let's say you have some employees. You see that one of them has posted on Twitter some very hateful, very racist, very dangerous things. Things that your customers see. I will bet you a donut that you'd fire that person.

Which is exactly what ABC did.

Right! I have to look up the racist/bad things she has said. But, if she got in trouble for the Planet of the Apes remark, then that says it all about the situation. And she is a comedian.

The ratings are not low. 3 episodes in and it's ABC's highest rated show. Right now it's sitting at 100% renewal chance. ABC wishes they could get a full 22 episodes, but they have to settle for half seasons due to the careers of the cast.
