Roseanne Barr Will Not Get the Opportunity to Apologize

Posted by Troy on 31st May 2018 in Current Events, Entertainment

Samantha Bee calls Ivanka a “cunt.”  No one really cares.  Sammy comes out and says “Sooooo sorry…” which she is not, and all is forgiven.

Roseanne will not be given the same courtesy.  She has been labeled a racist.  That’s the end of it.  Bill Clinton says of Obama “A few years ago, this guy would have been getting us our coffee.”  No problem there.  Biden says he is a light skinned, well-spoken negro…no problem there  (okay, I threw in the negro word, but seriously…).

Frankly, I don’t think Roseanne mean anything racial  by the comment.  I looked at picture of Valerie Jarrett and Dr. Zira, and I gotta say…separated from birth, yo.

Here’s my thing.  Roseanne is a living, breathing human being, as are all her co-stars.    We have deprived them all of their livelihood…over a tweet.  I’m sorry.  I didn’t even want to crack down on Michael Vick over the dog fighting.  Humans win.  Sorry, but that’s the truth.  I don’t want to destroy anyone’s life because I truly believe that we all need and deserve a chance for redemption.  They could have demanded that Roseanne make a donation to the NAACP or done community service in the intercity, or pretty much anything, and that would have have been a more desirable outcome.

I believe both people have said something deplorable.  However, one gets to say “Dude, like… I’m like…totally sorry and junk…” and all is forgiven.  The other is DESTROYED.  Roseanne will probably never get serious work again.  Why?  Because of a tweet.

Long Live the Constitution!
