Home Television Roseanne’s Racist Tweet Must Be Addressed by Disney, Bob Iger, Laurie Metcalf,...

It’s enough already. The game Roseanne Barr has been playing has finally come to a tipping point.

Her Tweet overnight that former Obama aide Valerie Jarrett, who is African American, was the child of “muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes” would be enough to get anyone in this country fired immediately from their job.

Now Roseanne’s employer, Disney, and its chief, Bob Iger, must make a statement. Also her fellow actors Laurie Metcalf, John Goodman, and Sara Gilbert must say something.

For the last few months, the contention has been that Roseanne represented Trump’s America, and that she had the right to voice those issues on her TV show. But this last Tweet, which prompted a weak apology and her leaving of Twitter, is shocking and can’t go without some kind of remark.

Do these people– Iger, et al– approve of this behavior? I doubt it. It’s time they said something.
