Posted on 05/29/2018 3:38:04 PM PDT by EdnaMode
After a racist tweet by Roseanne Barr that created an outcry online, reruns of the Roseanne revival scheduled to air on Viacom networks Paramount Network, TV Land and CMT will be pulled from their respective schedules.
Roseanne reruns will be canceled on the three channels starting Wednesday, a Viacom spokesperson said.
Later on Tuesday a Hulu spokesperson also confirmed that the streaming platform would be dropping the show, writing, "We support ABCs decision and are removing the show from Hulu."
The Laff broadcast network Tuesday announced that it would be dropping reruns of the original series, which ran from 1988-97 on ABC. "While we believe viewers have always distinguished the personal behavior of the actress Roseanne Barr from the television character Roseanne Connor, we are disgusted by Barrs comments this week. Therefore, we are removing the original Roseanne series from the Laff schedule for the time being, effective immediately," Laff said in a statement.

It’s also a wild over-reaction.
Wonder how long it will take before they want to burn her at the stake?
And yet Seinfield wasn’t pulled from the air in syndication after Kramers breakdown on stage
It was not a raciest tweet, valjar is not even black.
“Later on Tuesday a Hulu spokesperson also confirmed that the streaming platform would be dropping the show...”
They will never be able to remove Roseanne from YouTube and the dark web.
Hey, she wasn't wrong, just wasn't PC.
Wow! Roseanne is being made a non-person. The Muslim Brotherhood has called out all it’s dhimmi sledgehammers to crush a walnut. ValJar is either the Professor Moriarty of the Islamicization of America or one of the chief lieutenants.
What I don’t get is that liberals think we all came from monkeys. What, not blacks? Besides, in Planet of the Apes, the apes were the superior beings, so where is the insult? They wanted to bag that show ever since it turned out positive for Trump and were looking for a reason. They think they are fooling somebody. Also, for crying out loud people, get off social media!
Both her parents were/ are AfricanAmericans, what is she then?
Valerie Jarrett is the light-skinned black child of two light-skinned black Americans who just happened to have been born in Iran. She is black.
tim allen better be careful they’re gunning for him too
The full Bill Cosby treatment.
This will blow up in the lefts face. People are sick of all the PC bull s***. That is one of the reasons Trump won. That is why they are all terrified of Trump. When the “grab ‘em by the p****” line didn’t sink him, they knew the PC era was coming to an end.
There will be a backlash
>>>It was not a raciest tweet, valjar is not even black<<<
Actually, her Father was a Mulatto, a Commie Mulatto just like Obama.
It was news to me, and I doubt Rosanne even knew about The Lizard Queen’s Daddy.
That being said, it wasn’t a Racist Tweet, but facts have no bearing on perception.
Kramer didn't insult Valerie Jarrett.
It wasn't what Roseanne Barr Tweeted, it was who she mocked. Had she said the same thing about Maxine Waters, she'd still have a job (after some minor scolding). Not Valerie Jarrett. She's still too powerful.
