Roseanne Barr is back to tweeting. After her hit show was canceled for an insensitive tweet sent out by the actress, Barr had temporarily deleted her account. She had quite a bit to say beforehand though.
In a since-deleted tweet, Roseanne Barr pointed out the hypocrisy of the media and entertainment industry with one tweet that read, “get this! they pulled all my reruns and replaced me with COSBY! it’s kinda hilariously gross.”
In April Bill Cosby was found guilty of aggravated indecent assault. He could go to jail for the rest of his natural life.
So TV executives would rather show a convicted sex abuser over someone who sent an off-color tweet. There is no doubt that Roseanne Barr has a history of questionable behavior and her tweet was stupid but many are openly wondering if the punishment really fits the crime.
Adding fuel to the fire is last week’s attack on Ivanka Trump by liberal TV host Samantha Bee, who called Trump a “feckless c***.” She later apologized but her television show will continue to air.
