On May 29th, 2018 I woke up to seeing @therealroseanne drama all over social media. All options are my own and not Lifestyle Media’s nor any of the other employees opinions.
Roseanne Bar tweeted, “muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby=vj.” I was shocked, I want to hear from our readers if you think or do not think Roseanne was treated fairly…
Later Roseanne said she was on a drug called Ambien. Ambien make a public statement saying, “Racism is not a side effect.”
What Roseanne said was wrong, and she appologized more then once. Someone who is racist would not apologize. A real racist person stands by their words.
Roseanne is a comedian and it appears in her mind it was a joke. We live in a new world of the internet where you cannot joke, have bad jokes, or write on the internet. I’m fully against what Roseanne said let me be clear on that.
There is currently a conspiracy that Roseanne has been unfairly treated do to her supporting President Trump.
In staying neutral I guess I have never seen any headlines stating “Harvey Weinstein a Obama supporter.”
We are all greatly distressed by the disgraceful and unacceptable tweet from Roseanne Barr this morning. What she wrote is antithetical to our core values, both as individuals and as an agency. Consequently, we have notified her that we will not represent her. Effective immediately, Roseanne Barr is no longer a client.
In looking at other Celiberties and racism, they were not treated equally to Roseanne, why?
Above Tom Arnold says you can suck a racist d**k. Tom Arnold still has representation and employeed. Snoop dog still has representation and is also employeed. Snoop is not a Trump fan, I’m unsure about Tom Arnold or Harvey Weinstein.
Many think her apology should have been enough. ABC still gave shows to Victor Salva who it was reported from An Open Secret served jail time for molesting children.
Do you think Roseanne is being treated fairly?
Racism exists here as well, labeling Trump as a Nazi. ABC hired him as well. Why?
Why is someone who is racist speaking on racism?
