She compared a black obama aid to being an ape as well as saying she was a member of the muslim brotherhood.

Pretty sure backlash from outright racism doesn't qualify as political correctness gone mad.

When will people realise that using Twitter to broadcast to the world that you are a racist is a monumentally dumb thing to do?

I fail to see how this is political correctness taking another victim...

She said something offensive. The Network, like any employer, can respond by firing you. Don’t want to get fired? Don’t say offensive things. Especially like comparing a person to an ape. It’s not even subtle racism.

Poltical correctness is good. May there be more victims.

LMAO at that Clinton monstrosity trying to virtue signal and advertising her Soros connections. Are these people that shameless?

Unless Roseanne's saying the person looks like an ape because they’re black, it isn't ‘racist’.

She's a trump supporter.

Yes it is indeed racist to compare a black person to an ape :rolleyes:

Maybe she shouldn't have been openly racist on a public platform that might impact the reputation of associated organisations, like the network running her show. It's a bit like me calling myself a victim for getting fired after telling my boss to go **** himself.

But I don’t see how this is “political correctness.” This is just “don’t say racist things.”

She doesn't support Trump, she was driven to support Trump reluctantly by the racism towards Jews in the US and the fact they are not protected because they tend to do well.

No....

That’s like saying because there is racism towards blacks, one is “driven” to support Trump. You don’t go to the racist to save your from racism.

Interesting to se how the right has made the term political correctness such a bogey man.

I know what political correctness is; I simply wouldn’t see what is essentially being fired for being racist as “political correctness.” It’s not political correctness to fire a Nazi for being a Nazi. Certain things might fall into political correctness, like trans pronouns or bathroom use. But, this doesn’t appear to be one of those things.

Barr elicited criticism in July 2009 when she posed as Adolf Hitler in a feature for the satirical Jewish publication Heeb magazine, called "That Oven Feelin'".[60][61] The Nazi theme was reportedly her suggestion, and featured her with a Hitler mustache and swastika arm-band, holding a tray of burnt gingerbread man cookies the article referred to as "burnt Jew cookies".
She sounds charming.

I saw her in an interview with Dave Rubin last year, she was bizarre and seemed well out of it.
She's got what she deserved but you have to fee sorry for the 100 plus people that have lost their jobs because of her bigoted stupidity.
Any other person of those 100 spouting this bile and it would have only been their own career they would have **** on.
