Wow, Just barley into summer and it has been a wild ride indeed.
After Sarah Gilbert does a comedy skit with John Goodman who was a guest on the CBS Show “The Talk”, a skit about their old show Roseanne. Gilbert was so impressed about how comfortable the skit felt that she asked Goodman if he would be willing to do the show again.
Without hesitation Goodman was in and that was the start of the re-boot of the new Roseanne show featuring the one and only Roseanne Barr. Gilbert quickly contacted other former show members who also were quick to come on board and the new show was re-born.
It debuted on ABC with a huge ratings and remained as the number one show on TV till it went into hiatus for the season. By this time ABC had already renewed the show for a second season with Roseanne rumored to be making about Half A Million per episode.
The world was a Rosy place until one night when, as she claims, Roseanne, in an Ambient stupor, on her computer first off a Tweet that would bring an abrupt halt to all the goodness that anyone could find in the re-boot of the Roseanne show.
With the swift click of the Enter button Roseanne managed to insult, and in the worst possible way, a whole race of people as her tweet in most of America’s eyes, basically compared them to characters from the Planet of The Apes. YIKES.
Immediately the attacks on the Tweet ad Roseanne started. In a few hours Roseanne, most likely realizing by now that she had crossed the line, deleted the Tweet and started apologizing and even Tweeted that she was leaving Twitter. Sadly hat was far from the truth.
Over the course of the rest of the night and the following day, Rosy had continued Tweeting almost about 300 times. She went from attempting to defend herself to continuing to lash out at people and continuing to compare this one poor lade to a character from Planet Of The Apes.
But this time public sentiment was so high against Roseanne that ABC had no choice but to take action and they Canceled their Number One Show. Wow. A sign of the times that you just can’t say anything and get away with it. Well, unless your Donald Trump but, that a whole different story.
It’s like grandma used t say, “You just can’t let your Alligator Mouth over run your Hummingbird Brain”. Just Another Point Of View.
