Roseanne Barr’s show was immediately canceled and she was ousted as a racist for a tweet comparing former Obama official Valerie Jarrett to ‘Planet of the Apes.’ However, Bill Maher said almost the exact same thing about GOP’s Michelle Bachmann. And guess how the media reacted. They didn’t care. At all.
OAN correspondent Jack Posbiec pointed out the double standard. “What have we here,” he tweeted with a link to Bill Maher’s tweet from 2011. “For those who said I was way off comparing #MicheleBachman at debate on Wed with Planet of the Apes…” tweeted Maher with photos of Michele Bachman side by side with an ape.
The internet responded to Maher. “So how long will it take your channel to ban you??? EVER?? Hypocrisy anyone??” wrote one user. “TWO SETS OF RULES… one for us… and one for “them”” wrote another.
“It’s so clear how unfair Roseanne was treated. That’s why I refuse to watch The Conners & I hope no one else will! I’m hoping another network revives Roseanne & I’m dying for a Roseanne Comedy Tour! ❤️” wrote another.
“This guy is despicable. How quickly the Media and @HBO dismissed how he used the “N” word when he was interviewing @BenSasse. He should have been fired!” wrote another. Do you think there is a huge double standard? Check out the tweet below.
