The Walt Disney Company which owns ABC took swift action this week after Roseanne Barr made racist comments about Valerie Jarrett, a former Obama administration staffer. The network canceled the reboot of her popular sitcom, sending a clear message.
Barr’s derogatory remarks were offensive and inexcusable. Now the controversial and outspoken comedian is taking more heat for blaming her racist tweet on the drug Ambien. If her comment was meant to be a joke, many people didn’t find it funny.
I constantly remind my kids that anything they post on digital media is there forever. They can’t take it back and if they do or say something inappropriate, there are consequences. Roseanne Barr quickly learned that lesson.
The next time Roseanne wants to share her thoughts with her Twitter followers, maybe she should take an Ambien and get a good night’s rest to clear her head before hitting send on that next tweet.
