Roseanne Fired

ABC canceled Roseanne Barr’s revival of her show after she went bananas on Twitter. 

The star, previously known for pissing off most of the country by not singing the Star Spangled Banner correctly, apologized for calling Obama Administration adviser Valerie Jarrett a child of the “Muslim Brotherhood & Planet of the Apes.” Barr came back to Twitter about 5 minutes later to expand on her apology.

“I apologize to Valerie Jarrett and to all Americans,” Barr tweeted. “I am truly sorry for making a bad joke about her politics and her looks. I should have known better. Forgive me-my joke was in bad taste.” 

She has not tweeted anything since. Everyone (meaning I) is waiting for the President to weigh in on this one.

Solo: A Star Wars Movie

If the Red Cup movie doesn't reference the Christmas Special, I'm not going. There are (at last count) over 22 references to the original trilogy. I can't imagine watching a cup fly around for 2 hours will make for interesting cinema... I guess the box office returns will confirm or correct my humble opinon.
