ABC made a huge mistake firing Roseanne over a tweet. There isn’t a shred of evidence out there that Roseanne is a racist. In fact, she has a long track record suggesting the exact opposite. But, ABC was looking for an opportunity to get rid of the outspoken Trump supporter and she gave them one. They had the audacity to assume they could still keep the show going without Roseanne.
Now, the president of ABC is out of a job.
From Western Journal:
Some may call it karma or even long-overdue justice. Regardless, the news may surprise and please fans and defenders of Roseanne Barr.
Channing Dungey, who was the first African-American woman to head the entertainment division of a major broadcast network, is now the former president of ABC Entertainment following the announcement of her resignation last week.
It was Dungey who decided to cancel “Roseanne” following the star’s controversial tweet in May about former Obama administration staffer Valerie Jarrett, who is also African American, that was labeled as racist.
Dungey, named president in 2016, defended her decision to cancel the popular show by saying, “Roseanne’s Twitter statement is abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values, and we have decided to cancel her show.”
It looks like an almost certainty that ‘The Conners’ will be cancelled soon. ABC has no one but itself to blame.
