Apparently fans of Roseanne Barr are not going gently into that good night. If they have their way, Bill Maher will be the next show to be not he chopping block for racially attacking a public figure, the president. And yes, his comments were in very bad taste. So why does he get a COMPLETE pass, and Roseanne gets fired, immediately?
FOX News raises the question.
“Roseanne” fans have called on HBO to fire “Real Time” host Bill Maher in response to the comedian’s jokes that President Trump was part orangutan.
… Following ABC’s announcement, Charlie Kirk, the founder of Turning Point USA, a right-wing nonprofit group, tweeted, “Wait, Bill Maher makes comparisons to Trump being a gorilla all the time? They get classified as ‘jokes’ by the media and he is of course allowed to keep his show and not have his life ruined. The difference? Bill Maher is a liberal, Roseanne is a free-thinking Trump supporter.”

Pretty good point, don’t ya think? And maybe Roseanne fans aren’t the only ones getting sick and tired of the double standard.
And Townhall noted that Joy Behar attacked homeschooled children with this comment.
While, in 2002, Maher was canceled, by ABC, after comments he made regarding 911, Twitter mentioned him more than 54,000 in relation to the Roseanne firing. He’s laying low now, but we can all remember/understand that he did resurface on another media platform.
If the left has it’s way, Roseanne’s career is over. Forever. Double Standard Much?
