Fox and Friends took the bold view this morning that, yes, actually Roseanne’s tweet was racist, by way of twitter. Via Rawstory.
In a Thursday morning tweet, “Fox & Friends’” Twitter account wrote that, “Roseanne Barr apologizes for racist tweets after her ABC show is canceled.”

Yes, well, don’t go out on a limb, there, Fox – focus on the apology more so than the tweet or cancellation.
Regardless, tolerate it, many Fox fans did not, firing back on Twitter, by way of example:
Don‘t surrender for political correctness!

I real believe she says stuff because she so hurt by what all theses other freaks get away with. And know they do. Does needs to put more of a voice into double standards

ABC overreacted. This shows how afraid Democrats are of losing control of what people think.

While I realize 2 wrongs don’t make a right, ABC has many shows with actors who constantly disparage our president, our administration and our people. They spew hate at America. I’m thru with ABC.

Why was it ok for the “Comedian” to be hateful at the Whitehouse Correspondent Dinner? They say oh that’s what comedians do ….so does Roseanne Bar!!!

To Ainsley Earhardt, I can’t believe I’m having to address you in opposition, but please focus on the left destroying America, not a poorly delivered political joke. Forgive/move on. I don’t watch Fox & Friends to see aggression towards a friend of American success.

A “poorly delivered political joke”? How funny. Get back to “focus[ing] on the left destroying America.”
The way I see it, Fox fans are unable to distinguish between being critical of someone’s ideas, or actions, and being critical of someone’s race, or ethnicity – something someone just happens “to be.”
And that’s a huge problem.
