Roseanne Barr pays the price for her “ugly tweet,” while others like De Niro are “applauded”

The stunning news came as a shock to many fans of Roseanne Barr that the popular reboot of her incredibly successful sitcom “Roseanne” was suddenly canceled. Many wondered if her outspoken support of President Trump was the reason ABC “pulled-the-plug” and were ready to protest her firing, perhaps even boycotting the station.

However what followed moments later simply could not be excused, Barr for whatever reason went on a late night “racist laced tirade” meltdown on Tweeter, and was “justifiably given the boot by ABC Entertainment President Channing Dungey.

In a statement Dungey explained why ABC quickly moved to drop the show, “Roseanne’s Twitter statement is abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values, and we have decided to cancel her show.”

Her late-night emotional meltdown began when she suddenly took a swipe at former senior aid within the Obama Administration Valerie Jarrett. The offensive and racist tweet stated, “Muslim Brotherhood & Planet of the Apes had a baby=VJ”

That tweet sent the Tweeter world into overdrive and within hours sealed Barr’s faith along with the hundreds of individuals working on the show. The acclaimed actress attempted to stem the outrage almost immediately with a public apology to Jarrett.

“I apologize to Valerie Jarrett and to all Americans. I am truly sorry for making a bad joke about her politics and her looks. I should have known better. Forgive me, my joke was in bad taste,” she tweeted, then announcing she was quitting Twitter.

However Barr was back in less than 14-hours on Twitter attempting to explain the series of events that led to her bizarre rant, blaming the prescription sleeping pill Ambien, tweeting, “guys I did something unforgivable so do not defend me. It was 2 in the morning and I was Ambien tweeting-it was memorial day too-i went 2 far & do not want it defended-it was egregious Indefensible. I made a mistake I wish I hadn’t but…don’t defend it, please. Ty”

And “no one should”…and yet to put things in proper context, Barr has paid a steep price for her bigotry, and is being mercilessly vilified within the mainstream media and on social media, while other celebrity types are “applauded” for their hateful rants and actual threats directed at a sitting president.

The most obvious is aging screen icon Robert De Niro, who unlike Barr’s late night “spur-of-the-moment” tweet, actually spent time going through the process of creating a video and recording a scathing attack on the President, calling him a “punk” and a “dog” and saying he would like to “punch him in the face”.

Adding, “I mean, he’s so blatantly stupid. He’s a punk; he’s a dog, he’s a pig, he’s a con, he’s a bullshit artist, he’s a mutt who doesn’t know what he is talking about, doesn’t do his homework, doesn’t care.”

“He think’s he is gaming society, doesn’t pay his taxes. He’s an idiot. Colin Powell said it best: ‘He’s a national disaster.’ He’s an embarrassment to this country. It makes me so angry that this country has got to this point where this fool, this bozo has wound up where he has.”

However, unlike the firestorm of hate currently directed at Barr within the mainstream media and on the Internet, De Niro’s hateful comments were lauded and praised by many on Twitter.

“This is by far the best thing de Niro’s done on camera since Heat.”

“OK, De Niro is officially forgiven for Dirty Grandpa.”

“The great #RobertDeNiro is also # NeverTrump. This is old school DeNiro dropping truth bombs and laying down the ga…”

Such is the world we live in today, where an egregious act can be either vilified or praised, dependent on one’s political views.

  1. This is another example of the double standard that exists between progressives and conservatives. Progressives, or should we call them socialists, along with main stream media can do no wrong. Look at the White House Media dinner where a disgusting comedienne berated and abused several conservatives. From the outside it seemed to me that the Leftists were just fine with this display calling it a little edgy but very funny.
    DOUBLE STANDARD!!!!

    • u don’t like to get your own medicine….u dish out calling lefties everything n the book but yet your way of thinking is outdated it is disgustingly pathetic!

  2. Barr’s racist dogwhistle slurs were indeed vile.

    De Niro simply told the truth about Trump, who “think’s he is gaming society, doesn’t pay his taxes, is a national disaster, and an embarrassment to this country.”

    DeNiro’s unkind comments are rather mild, calling Trump “an idiot, a fool, and a bozo.” Those remarks are obviously inaccurate, as Trump has adroitly ruined the US while massively enriching himself, his family, and the billionaire class as a whhle.

    It horrifies me, too, and makes me angry, that, as DeNiro says, “this country has got to this point where this fool, this bozo has wound up where he has.”

  3. “Whattabout-ism” at its finest.

    Trumps acts stupid. He creates the source of his conflict.

    Jarrett is black and female. She is in no way responsible for these attributes. Mocking her actions would be totally legitimate, but mocking something over which she has no control is lazy and pointless.

    It’s not the politics. It’s the intent of the insult. There is absolutely no point in mocking someone’s race. There is a point in mocking someone’s treatment of their staff, or how often what they proclaim in public discourse is proven to be shallow, callous, an outright lie, or most generousously, miserably uninformed.

  4. The media, democrats, liberals and their puppets are disgusting, blind and sick!!! Anyone can see Trump is a he’ll of a better President than obama ever was!!! They are just mad because their precious hillary didn’t win!!! They hate Trump because they know He’s making America great again!!! They hate America and everything she stands for!!! Obama tried to ruin America and hillary would have, too!!! The left thinks it’s ok to say whatever they wanabout conservatives and get away with it!!! NO!!! IF YOU CAN DISH IT OUT, BETTER LEARN TO TAKE IT!!! KARMA’S A BITCH AND YOU’RE FINDING THAT OUT!!! SUCK IT UP, BUTTERCUPS!!!

  5. As we see the failure of trying to bow lower, drawing lines in the sand and leaving your borders open to ms13 as a humanitarian act being praised by progressive idiots its no surprise you dont recognize success in the making. DeNiro is still playing the taxi driver delusional character but you Dems will use any poster boy you can find to fit your delusion thought process.
