Thank goodness for Roseanne on DVD

Roseanne Barr is already super rich. The cancellation of her TV series after she said something controversial will have zero impact on her standard of living.

The people who worked on the show behind the scenes are the ones who will be hurt.

And millions of people will be deprived of being able to watch the syndicated reruns.

I’ll keep watching my DVDs of the first five seasons of Roseanne, just like I’ll keep watching my DVDs of the first two seasons of The Cosby Show.

I wonder if the same people who support this cancellation and stopping the reruns have also stopped listening to the Beatles since it was revealed that John Lennon was a wife beater.

A person can be really good at one thing (creating movies, music, or TV shows) and simultaneously be really bad at another thing (being a racist, or a wife-beater). Since we live in a highly technological society with very high levels of specialization, I personally think it would be irrational to stop eating my favorite candy just because it turned out that the CEO of the candy company had murdered his family. But I respect the rights of others who disagree with me, i.e., those who would stop eating the candy because of that.
