ABC Prez Who Fired Roseanne RESIGNS as The Conners Ratings Dive

10

Channing Dungey, the ABC Entertainment president who made the bold decision to yank Roseanne after its star made a racist tweet, has resigned her post. Sounds like the rumors that ABC regrets their hasty decision to drop Roseanne.

It was a bold and idiotic decision.

The Conners, the replacement for Roseanne has dropped double digits and two stars — John Goodman and Laurie Metcalf — have allegedly been asked to take big pay cuts. Revenues for advertising are also sinking.

As for Dungey, Entertainment says: It was Dungey who announced the cancellation of Roseanne after Roseanne Barr posted a racist tweet about Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett. “Roseanne’s Twitter statement is abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values, and we have decided to cancel her show,” she said at the time.

They claim she was widely praised for her decision. She was also widely condemned and by the people who actually watched the show.

Does anyone actually believe Roseanne is a racist? She didn’t even know Valerie Jarrett was black — many don’t. Jarrett is half-white and looks more middle eastern than black. The network could have put a letter in Roseanne’s file and kept her on. Instead, they decided to cater to the leftist mob on social media and Valerie Jarrett.

Roseanne apologized over and over but all the mob would do is trash her. She had to be destroyed.

John Goodman said Roseanne was ‘missed’ Roseanne and the ABC brass regretted their decision. It’s likely true. Their decision was worse than anything she said.

Listen to this great clip about Roseanne.

  1. One of the main reasons I pretend to be a Democrat, so people will defend me or ignore it if I say something like Rosanne did by accident.

    It must really be difficult being a Republican, you all have my sympathy having to walk on egg shells at all times. It must really be harder for comedians.

  2. “Channing Dungey, the ABC Entertainment president who made the bold decision to yank Roseanne after its star made a racist tweet, has resigned her post.”

    Her tweet of course could be interpreted or construed to be racist, but I really don’t believe it was meant to be racist. Roseanne claims she didn’t even know Jarrett was part black, so assuming that’s true, and I think it probably is because I never thought of her as being part black and thought maybe she was part Iranian or something, how in the world was the comment possibly meant to be racist? Certainly dumb not to anticipate that even using the word ape to describe someone not lily white like G.W “Chimp” Bush might get you into trouble, but racist? I don’t think so at all.

    This, and especially combined with Monique’s testimony, points to the conclusion that Roseanne has been supremely wronged and falsely demonized by the usual hoards of PC zombies hungry for yet another kill.

    • Bottom line, even THEY know she’s not raceis. She has plenty of friends and extended family whom are black…..IF she were pro Hilary Anti Trump they would be defending this independent, woman. She’s pro Trump and they were just waiting…..
