ABC just canceled their hit show, Roseanne, over a controversial comment from Roseanne Barr on Twitter.
In a now-deleted tweet, Barr described Jarrett as like “the muslim brotherhood& planet of the apes had a baby = vj,” referring to Senior Advisor Valerie Jarrett.
But ABC is hypocritical to cancel this beloved conservative show and here are five employees that should apologize for controversial statements directed at President Trump.
Bob Iger is the top dog because he’s the CEO of Disney. And Disney owns both ABC and the worldwide leader in sports, ESPN, so Iger has full control over the entire entity.
Roseanne Barr apologized profusely for her late night Ambien-infused Twitter tirade and what she said was reprehensible, but liberals called for her job instead of allowing an inch of forgiveness.
ABC moved fast to cancel one of their biggest shows.
ABC Executive President, Channing Dungey, was ultimately the deliverer of bad news and her statement read,
“Roseanne’s Twitter statement is abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values, and we have decided to cancel her show.”
Iger tweeted his response to theRoseanne cancelation after Dungey made her decision.
From Channing Dungey, President of ABC Entertainment: “Roseanne’s Twitter statement is abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values, and we have decided to cancel her show.”
There was only one thing to do here, and that was the right thing.

This is the most hypocritical response because Iger, ABC and ESPN completely ignore the vitriol that their own employees spread towards President Trump.
And Trump noted that in a tweet and demanded an apology.
Bob Iger of ABC called Valerie Jarrett to let her know that “ABC does not tolerate comments like those” made by Roseanne Barr. Gee, he never called President Donald J. Trump to apologize for the HORRIBLE statements made and said about me on ABC. Maybe I just didn’t get the call?

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders also reaffirmed the desire for an apology when she spoke to the media,
“Where was Bob Iger’s apology to the White House staff for Jemele Hill calling the president and anyone associated with him a white supremacist? To Christians around the world for Joy Behar calling Christianity a mental illness?”
Here are five ABC employees who need to apologize to Trump immediately or else Iger should do the “right thing” and fire them too.
