BUSTED: ABC’s Nasty Plan With Pro-Trump ‘Roseanne’ Revealed And It’s Going To Cost Them BIG TIME
Roseanne did all that. This was due to the fact that she appealed to Americans who wanted a positive message about our president and conservative politics on television. Contrary to most celebrities, televisions themes, and messages in movies, Roseanne wasn’t afraid to go against the grain and praise President Trump, his accomplishments, and speak out about the real issues in this country. This put her in the crosshairs of other people in the business who hated seeing her ratings soar at a time when theirs were struggling.
Despite the fact that the ABC network was cashing in on this incredible conservative show, they didn’t seem to like it. Without hesitation, the hugely successful series that had just been renewed for a second season was abruptly canceled within hours of Roseanne’s single tweet. While her remarks about former Barack Obama aide Valerie Jerrett may have been in poor taste, she had a right to say what she wanted, on her own time and her own Twitter account. Afterall, droves of hateful celebrities say worse daily about President Trump and First Lady Melania Trump, without any recourse.
If the sudden cancelation seemed wrong, you were right, and if it seemed like there was something under the surface, perhaps an ulterior motive, then your suspicions were likely also not unfounded. ABC has come under a massive dose of criticism for the cancelation considering that hateful shows with constant vile messages about politicians, as seen on “The View,” remain on the network.
Now, former presidential candidate, Herman Cain, has just called ABC out for what they really did on purpose and have been hiding it since.
The Washington Examiner reports:
Herman Cain, a businessman and 2012 Republican presidential candidate, said ABC used actor Roseanne Barr’s tweet about a former Obama adviser being a product of the Muslim Brotherhood and “Planet of the Apes” as an “excuse” to cancel Barr’s sitcom, “Roseanne,” in which she portrayed a supporter of President Trump.
“I understand them using this as an excuse,” Cain said in an interview Tuesday with Fox Business. “Yes, it was racist. Yes, it was distasteful. And she vehemently apologized.”
Cain said despite the apology, “They canceled her anyway.”
ABC Entertainment announced Tuesday that “Roseanne” would be canceled, noting that Barr’s comments were “abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values.”
Why would ABC have a different set of rules for Roseanne that aren’t applied to hateful hosts on the network’s other show, “The View?” Barr and the cast’s message on the show isn’t the typical rhetoric that Joy Behar and Whoopi Goldberg push on their ABC talk show. Perhaps the brass at ABC considered the conservative agenda dangerous to their underlying cause especially given that we’re coming up on the midterm elections.
This is speculation since the network has not confirmed or denied anything other than a single tweet about the show cancellation. However, there’s reason to question what really happened and Cain certainly makes a solid point in his assertion of what ABC was really doing. They can’t just cancel a totally successful show for no reason so maybe they really were looking for their opportunity and immediately pounced when she gave them a ridiculous “reason.”
ABC made their decision, for whatever reason, and now they are going to have to pay for it. Just as they saw an unprecedented response to Roseanne’s pro-Trump show, the network is about to experience the opposite in boycott. Ratings loss equates to financial loss and if ABC didn’t think the backlash was going to be “that bad,” then they are in for a huge surprise from fed up patriots sick of the double standard. Just ask the NFL.
