UPDATE: Roseanne's show is toast:
Wanda Sykes is a great comedian and writer. And today after Roseanne Barr tweeted this about Jarrett: “Muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby,” she had enough.
Roseanne has a history of attacking African-Americans and former Obama officials. Earlier she declared that Susan Rice is “a man with big swinging ape balls.”
After apologizing to Jarrett on Twitter, Roseanne then sent a message like she's leaving the social media behemoth entirely.
Wanda has never hidden her feelings about Trump.
But it's not mere "politics" to make statements comparing an African American woman to monkeys. There's no coming back from that, and applause to Wanda Sykes for walking out.
Note: The Daily Beast had incorrectly labeled Sykes as the head writer at "Roseanne", but that's inaccurate.
UPDATE: (Frances Langum) And the winners (tie) for perfect timing are MSNBC and Starbucks:
And podcast personalities @Frangeladuo tweeted:
Hey @Starbucks Can Roseanne come by the "don't be a racist" workshop today? Asking for a network.
Roseanne's talent agency has fired her too.
