The Walt Disney Co.’s week got off to a rough start as shares fell after a disappointing box office debut for “Solo: A Star Wars Story” and the abrupt cancellation of ABC’s top-rated sitcom “Roseanne” following a racist comment from series star Roseanne Barr.

ABC executives canceled the program, which had been one of the network’s most successful sitcoms, after Barr made a racist remark on her Twitter account about former White House senior adviser Valerie Jarrett. Barr initially played down the comment as a “joke,” but later apologized.

“There was only one thing to do here, and that was the right thing,” Disney CEO Bob Iger wrote on Twitter.

Soooo.... the "only right thing to do".... was to punish the entire cast, crew and anyone else involved in the production of the show.... for one stupid crack/comment made by one person... ie Barr? 

This idiot Iger is really too stupid (stuck-on style) for belief.

Must be a leftie.

I don't believe anyone in the hierarchy of Disney would know what the right thing was let alone how to do it if their life depended on it. They are anti family, anti Christianity and as far as I am concerned looking at the crap they put out and how they try to manipulate children.............anti America.
I don't believe in If anymore, If is for children.

Yeah, but the hiring of Kieth Olbermann back at ESPN will turn everything around.
