Grade A trolling…

Well…I’m sure you heard by now, or even read it here that Roseanne Barr had her show cancelled by ABC for some racist tweets she tweeted Monday night…and in the ensuing day, she has been backpedaling furiously trying to stem the damage that has spread to syndicated re-runs of the earlier version of her show with most of the big syndicaters pulling the show immediately. Now, she is trying to make an excuse that she was taking Ambien and that made her make the racist tweets…but, the manufacturer, Sanofi US hit back at her with a glorious trolling..”While all pharmaceutical treatments have side effects, racism is not a known side effect of any Sanofi medication.”¬† That just made me laugh my butt off…but that is the modus operandi of the modern conservative, blame anything and anyone for them being terrible people…it’s never their fault, they are “misunderstood”, or their comments are taken “out of context”, or it’s their right to be a bigot under the first amendment…and that’s true…they are free to be a bigot and make racist statements, but that does not make them free from the consequences that arise from their bigotry….karma is a bitch….

Well done, ABC…

Well…if you haven’t already heard, ABC has just cancelled Roseanne’s show due to the racist comments she made on twitter yesterday…now, I feel for the other actors and crew on the show who aren’t racist trumpist, assholes….but, this is not new behavior from Roseanne and I’m sure they have seen this before and signed on anyway….nice job, Roseanne…your racism just lost 10 talented actors and a hundred crew people their jobs…maga…

Thank you, ABC for doing the right thing and showing us that American values shouldn’t be racist…and the open racism that trump has unleashed is not acceptable in anyone…

Boycott “Roseanne” part two…

Well….just when you thought Roseanne couldn’t be any worse of a person, it comes to light that she has been attacking the Parkland shooting survivors, David Hogg, specifically by re-tweeting the right wing conspiracy that claims that David Hogg gave a Nazi salute during his March for Our Lives address…and this is just one of the harassments and conspiracies that the right has been pushing since these brave kids said enough to school murders and have started doing something about it. To have someone like Roseanne personally attack¬† and slur a 17 year old kid for speaking his mind and expressing his first amendment right to speak, is just frickin wrong and the execs at ABC who support this person need to do something about it…a fake apology is not enough…we need to boycott this rotten to the core person and ensure that this hate is not rewarded…after all, boycotts work…just look at Laura Ingraham, whose advertisers are abandoning her show on fox after she also attacked David Hogg on Twitter….this type of hate can’t go unpunished in a civil society…and I hope Roseanne pays with the loss of her show….geez…

Boycott “Roseanne”

Well….I’m not sure where the media and the right come up with the idea that Hollywood has a “liberal bias” when crap like “Roseanne” and “The Ranch” keep getting made. I wonder why the producers or the studio heads would approve of this trump fluffing nonsense if they are so liberal….probably because money trumps anything…money trumps the truth…money trumps morality…get the idea? Just read an article with Roseanne where she was asked about trump’s anti gay bias, his affairs, his criminality, and she just let it all go saying that she didn’t “believe” that trump has done anything wrong…giving him a pass during the week where he and Pence rolled out their new trans bashing policy that would throw all trans people out of the military…and where Pence spoke at a conference saying that gays shouldn’t have the same rights as the rest of us and that he will work for a constitutional amendment to permanently make them second class citizens. That’s not homophobia, or bigotry, or wrong…at least not in Roseanne’s eyes…and that is just the kind of normalization of trumpism that these shows are all about…that’s it’s perfectly fine to hate the “others” and live with no moral character at all…the only response to this whitewash is to boycott this toxic brew and make sure that this hate is not rewarded….geez….
