“Roseanne” revival was abruptly canceled by ABC Tuesday following
crude, racist tweets sent by show star Roseanne Barr about
former Obama aide Valerie Jarrett. And while there’s absolutely no
excuse for Barr’s tweets, it’s extremely hypocritical of ABC to
continue airing “The View” given all the abhorrent things the
co-hosts have said.

Behar infamously and openly mocked the Christian faith of Vice
President Mike Pence and millions of Americans when she proclaimed
that the ability to hear messages from God is not a marker of faith,
but “mental illness.” It took Behar weeks to
apologize, and she only did so after constant public criticism and

proving just how intolerant she truly is, the very same month she
attacked Pence’s faith, Behar also outright stated, “As a Democrat,
I am offended by Republicans!” (RELATED: Joy

the most disgusting thing to ever fly out of Behar’s mouth occurred
in October 2016. During a discussion about Donald Trump’s news
conference prior to the second presidential debate, Behar called
Bill Clinton’s rape accusers “tramps.” (RELATED: Paula

Behar is far from the only unabashedly bigoted member of “The View.”

Donald Trump should endure torture. (RELATED: Diamond

statements of Behar, Goldberg, and co. protected under the First
Amendment? Yes, they are. So are Barr’s tweets, however misinformed.
But Barr is also a conservative, and because of that, she doesn’t
enjoy the same treatment under the law as liberals like Behar and
Goldberg do. So while “Roseanne” gets canceled, “The View” lives on.
outrageous that ABC immediately jumped to cancel “Roseanne” mere
hours after her tweets. Meanwhile, Behar should have been canned a
long time ago, but ABC continues to give her a platform to spew her
bigotry and hate.
