When the question was posed recently, on how the new show will handle Roseanne’s departure, John Goodman’s (Dan Conner) extremely informational response was “It’s an unknown. I guess he’ll be mopey and sad because his wife’s dead.”
As anyone that has their ears tuned to pop culture should know by now, Roseanne shared her racist inner thoughts, in a tweet, by comparing Valerie Jarrett to an ape from PLANET OF THE APES. Since then Ms, Barr has apologized and tried her best to mold her plain text tweet into meaning something it clearly didn’t.
I’m not sure how I feel about her getting fired from her own show over her personal feelings, abhorrent or not. I’m more impressed that the same crowd that is offended at folks kneeling before NFL games had no conflicting emotions over this.
Consistency people, you’re either offended or you aren’t. Maybe the problem is, I don't offend easily?
THE CONNERS come to you via ABC Tuesday October 16th, whether you asked for it or not.
Personally, I want it to succeed for reasons beyond my knowledge but I have real doubts this will last beyond the first season. We shall see.
