Roseanne Barr posted a racist joke, and as a result of that, her show gets cancelled.

Had she not openly supported Donald Trump she must just have scraped through this one

No it's a humiliation ritual. Valerie Jarrett, George Soros, Chelsea Clinton, and whoever officiated the deal Barack and Michelle made with Netflix wanted to make an example out of Roseanne for talking on Russia Today and twitter about the illuminati/hollywood elites and made her career burn to put fear into any aspiring Corey Feldman. 

Or, ABC is brain dead for hiring the bitch again when she is KNOWN for making racist comments to Susan Rice (and others) and being a vile, disgusting human being. I really don't understand how ABC didn't see this coming.

Just who in the hell would aspire to be Corey Feldman?? Endure sexual abuse as a child, plunge into drink and drugs in your teens and then disappear for years!

Thought he meant Feldman more as a conspiracy theorist and/or attention whore (See: I got stabbed).  Could be wrong.

Never mentioned his sexual abuse. I was referring to his conspiracies, his "stabbing", and "exposing" hollywood.

Glen Chin dead at 70, was in various sitcoms in the 80/90's but I best remember him as the first 'morph' in Michael Jackson's Black and White video, where he turns into the very young Tyra Banks.

A portly man with an irresistible smile, Chin appeared in 20 films. Among other roles, he played a funny café-goer in “50 First Dates,” a druggist in “Natural Born Killers” and a shantytown resident seduced by a young prostitute in the Chinese-language film “Hollywood Hong Kong.” For that role he was nominated for a Golden Horse, the Chinese Oscar.

He also appeared on “Seinfeld,” morphed into Tyra Banks in the Michael Jackson video “Black or White” and played hilariously a sumo high diver in a 1993 Miller Lite commercial, among many other credits.

Glen Chin was born in Stockton in 1948, the first of eight children. His father owned the Quong Wah Yen sausage factory and grocery in Chinatown.

After attending Cleveland Elementary School and Stagg, Chin earned a degree in music therapy from University of the Pacific’s Conservatory of Music.

He taught music in Linden Unified, played double bass violin for the Stockton Symphony and conducted band at local theater productions.

 

 

 

Apparently.

Should probably go in the 20th Century Sitcoms thread, however, Larry Storch is reporting that Ken Berry, who played Sam Jones on the show has died aged 85. https://www.facebook.com/LARRYSTORCHSPAGE/?hc_ref=ARSQ4WO5x90cUZiH_WI6O6HPo93oHRHjoLXqt4DFPrK5CRCrfeoEYXoPigbIGuxK8iA&fref=nf&__tn__=kCH-R

Ethel Ayler, who played Carrie Hanks on the Cosby Show, dead at 88 apparently on November 18, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.hollywoodreporter.com/amp/news/ethel-ayler-dead-cosby-show-eves-bayou-actress-was-88-1171489

 

Even if she mostly was relegated to small roles in tv and film,surprised her death went unreported to media outlets for a month  . Her Broadway career was pretty extensive and she worked with some pretty big names in all 3 mediums.
