[ # ] Roseanne says she begged for people’s jobs
May 31st, 2018 under Michael Strahan, Roseanne

Two days after ABC abruptly cancelled Roseanne over an abhorrent tweet by the show’s creator and star, the actress tweeted she tried to save the show and everyone’s jobs.

She wrote, “I begged Ben Sherwood at ABC 2 let me apologize & make amends. I begged them not to cancel the show. I told them I was willing to do anything & asked 4 help in making things right. I’d worked doing publicity4 them 4free for weeks, traveling, thru bronchitis. I begged4 ppls jobs. He said: what were you thinking when you did this? I said: I thought she was white, she looks like my family! He scoffed & said: ‘what u have done is egregious, and unforgivable.’ I begged 4 my crews jobs. Will I ever recover from this pain? omg.”

Sherwood has made a lot of bad decisions, how he handled Michael Strahan leaving Live, the Castle firings and getting rid of Paul Lee, but this was not one of them. I am sorry for all the people who lost their jobs. Roseanne was in the spotlight again and she should have been smarter with her tweets. But she has built a career getting away with stuff she should not have done, so what was going to stop her? I doubt even this will.

Although she might have learned a little lesson because she also tweeted, “I think I’ll b better tomorrow. The saddest part of all is 4 Jayden Rey on the show whom I grew2 love so much & am so ashamed of myself that she would ever think I do not love her bc she is African American. It’s the most gawd awful painful thing. I can’t let myself cave in tho.”

Words hurt and we all have to remember that the pen can be mightier than the sword. Or nowadays it would be the fingers are more deadly than an assault weapon.
