No, because she said Soros was complicit in killing Jews and stole the money of the Jews he killed.

There are enough legitimate points to go after Jarrett for without going so low as commenting on her race or looks. That's just trash.
Yup, those against her are human garbage and hate America, but she was an idiot and utterly retarded to make that tweet and deserves to lose her show. To be fair the ABC president had already said season 2 should not have problematic pro conservative content and she had refused, so they were likely looking to remove her anyway.. and her dumb ass gave them a perfect excuse.

ABC is a private company and she was contracted with it. I'm glad we all agree that high profile actors or athletes on TV should follow the wishes of their employers or be terminated.

I honestly did not see anything wrong with her tweets nor do I believe employers should fire people base on what they do on their personal life.

You're right, she does have free speech. She can write racist tweets all she wants (up to the limit of twitter's TOS). ABC also has the right to shitcan her show when she says racist shit. I don't know if the Klan has a TV network but maybe they can pick up the show for pennies on the dollar now.

I wondered how long her show would last. She does have a history of these types of antics. This is my surprised face.

I don't feel sorry for Roseanne at all. All these contracts for big companies contain morality clauses which she must have violated with her racial recklessness. I watched her show once and it really wasn't very political at all, and unfunny.
That said, she'll probably hook on with Fox. I feel bad for the crew of people who were dependent on her for their jobs.

You don't find suggesting that a black woman is the product of "Muslim Brotherhood" and "Planet of Apes" is offensive?

He thinks freedom of speech means freedom of consequences from said speech.

I have an idea for a new show. We send Roseanne and Kathy Griffin off to be the first people on Mars. No cameras are with them, and a baseball game is shown on screen for viewers at home.

Do they have what it takes to survive? We'll, uh... never know.

No, because she said Soros was complicit in killing Jews and stole the money of the Jews he killed.
IIRC, Soros was indeed a nazi collaborator?

"Soros comes from an anti-Semitic Jewish family and was a Nazi collaborator. "My mother was quite anti-Semitic, and ashamed of being Jewish," Soros said in an interview with The New Yorker. "Given the culture in which one lived, being Jewish was a clear-cut stigma, disadvantage, a handicap-and, therefore, there was always the desire to transcend it, to escape it."

Soros later said in the interview that he did not feel any remorse "about confiscating property from Jews as a teenager."

Delta, you are trying to make a false equivalency. Why are you purposely being dishonest?
Behar made a specific comment about a specific person, then apologized.
Barr made a specific comment about a specific person, then apologized.

Behar kept her job.
Barr lost hers.

What am I missing?

So may people don't understand that the Internet will get you. No matter what you post on social media, someone will turn it into hate speech for their own benefit, leaving the innocent OP holding the bag.

Let's be careful out there.
Turn it into hate speech? She did this on her own with no help.

Negative, your personal life should not be grounds for hiring or firing
Checking people Credit Score and Social Media by private companies is bs and setup companies to hire or fire people base on politics, religion, union beliefs, diet, sexual lifestyle, vices, and so on.

You missed my point. There was no reference to Roseanne. The reference was to everyone else in the world.
