Wanda Sykes is getting really bad news after she quit working on the Roseanne show. There are a few things she’s said that finally come back to haunt her as the general public use what she previously said against her. There’s a wicked double standard running rampant in the entertainment industry and we all need to put our foot down on it before it gets out of hand. There are a few things that Sykes said that many people consider racist and much worse than what Roseanne Tweeted about Valerie Jarret – a name many people didn’t really know until Roseanne just made her famous with a single Tweet.
Sykes is known for using racially charged content in her attempts at jokes, often failing to gather a gasping belly laugh from her audience who gives a chuckle, but doesn’t seem to really be into her using the Hollywood double standard to push her fledgling comedy act. She may have gotten lucky with a few of her standup jokes, but a lot of people seem to be turned off by her using racism in her act. Mostly, her jokes are subjectively not that funny, but to each their own.

The bad news is that Wanda’s basic schoolyard jokes are now causing her to feel the wrath of the public. She knew what she said in the past and for her to quit the Roseanne show over a misinterpreted Tweet that people called racist after remembering what she said herself about white people is just oblivious. Sykes comments about white people were rather offensive, although most people didn’t care what she said. Intelligent people don’t get offended when a comedian says something offensive. Lots of comedians have entire acts where almost everything is offensive and that’s what makes them funny. Offensive jokes and content are well liked by most people and anyone who claims to not like it, while saying things like what Sykes said, is clearly hiding something about themselves.
Sykes probably should have remembered that she too made racially charged comments before quitting the Roseanne show and acting like she was making a moral statement. People who like Wanda Sykes laughed at her jokes. People who like Roseanne laugh at hers. There shouldn’t be anyone getting offended or reporting things. If people don’t like something, then they can simply skip over it and find something they like.

At one point Sykes said something about white people not stealing wallets, but stealing entire countries. Some might suggest that the Europeans “conquered upon discovery” – not stole. Sykes also commented during one of her live stand-up shows that Americans voted for an orangutan as she talked about Donald Trump and the fact that he looks like a weird shade of orange from his tanning products. Sure, it’s obvious that the Trump uses a spray tan or tanning booth and everyone knows he looks a little orange, and that’s fine. Sykes went for a joke by comparing the color of an orangutan and the color of President Trump. Some laughed, most didn’t care because the joke was rather lame.
Here is a video of Wanda Sykes trashing Trump and essentially getting booed. She would also give the crowd the middle finger. It seems like her jokes failed, but that’s mostly because people are tired of their entertainment being ruined by politics and failure comedians going after them with racism and other nonsensical verbal abuse.
Sykes allegedly made this comment on Twitter as well, which was called out immediately for being inappropriate.
Roseanne did basically the same thing as Wanda Sykes, yet Roseanne just got fired from her show over it (her show is canceled). Meanwhile, Wanda just faces a little bit of social media outrage. Roseanne compared white-looking Valerie Jarrett to someone from the Planet of the Apes movies and this was probably because of her facial structure and haircut. To be fair, just like Trump looks a little orange, it’s a fair assumption to suggest that Jarrett does slightly resemble Helena Bonham Carter’s character. Carter, by the way, is a stunningly beautiful woman (great in The Fight Club), but she had a similar short hairdo (or don’t) with bangs in the movie and that’s probably the basis of Roseanne’s joke.
They both had very lame jokes, but should either of them be fired for their poor taste in humor? If a comedian tells a bad joke and people complain, then shouldn’t it be “oh well” for the people who don’t like their sense of humor? Humor is subjective, so some people might like Wanda, some might like Roseanne, some may like both, and others may not like them at all. Shouldn’t that be how it is? Right now it seems like if someone doesn’t like a joke or finds something subjectively offensive, then their first reaction is to boycott or get someone fired. Doesn’t that seem a bit ridiculous for everyone? Maybe everyone should calm down, focus on what makes them happy, and stop worrying about what the others are doing. People who are mad at Roseanne weren’t watching her show anyway, so there’s no point to cancel it. People who don’t like what Wanda said don’t watch her act either. Everything works out fine when people focus on the things they enjoy instead of being mad about someone they don’t watch in the first place. It’s all fake outrage and double standards.
Is the big problem the huge double standard?
Why can one person crack jokes about someone’s appearance and another person cannot?
Do you think everyone needs to stop complaining about offensive jokes?
Would classic comedians like George Carlin and Richard Pryor be disappointed with society today?
Should Roseanne get her show back? Should Wanda Sykes face the same backlash from her comments (which were much worse)?
What is your opinion on this “everyone is offended by everything” disaster and obvious mainstream media industry double standard?

First Video of Latest Trump Star Vandal Swinging Pickaxe Shows What Happened – Spread Like Wildfire
TMZ is now reporting that the LAPD has released the first video and has made an arrest in connection with the unhinged destruction of President Trump’s star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame this week. In it, a man used a pickaxe to unleash his intense frustration and anger at the president and shred the star to pieces.
The suspect, who has been identified as 24-year-old Austin Clay, was arrested on Wednesday and released early Thursday morning on bail, according to Los Angeles County Sheriff Department’s online records. A department spokesman later said he had been held on bail of $20,000 on a charge of felony vandalism. It wasn’t immediately clear who posted bail for Mr. Clay but unsubstantiated rumors were circulating that the money came from a gofundme page which was set up right after the arrest.
In this latest incident, LAPD later confirmed that they received a call around 3:30 a.m. Wednesday morning claiming that someone had taken a pickaxe to President Trump’s Hollywood star. The police later confirmed that the vandal had pulled a pickax out of a guitar case and proceeded to smash the star which is located on the 6800 block of Hollywood Boulevard.
Here is more on this via Hot Air:
“It’s a victory for La Résistance, one supposes, but mainly just another demonstration of empty nihilism. Donald Trump’s star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame got attacked by a vandal with a pickaxe this morning, the latest in a series of attempts to deface the installation. This attempt was a little more complete than others:
President Donald Trump’s star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame was destroyed Wednesday morning by a man with a pickax that witnesses say he concealed in a guitar case, police said.
Officers were called around 3:30 a.m. to the star’s location on Hollywood Boulevard near Highland Avenue, where they found a small pile of rubble in place of the star that Trump received in January 2007 for his role in the NBC show “The Apprentice.”
The suspect later turned himself in to Beverly Hills police, after having conducted the vandalism in full view of a number of witnesses:
Even at in the pre-dawn hours, there were a number of witnesses to the destruction, including two security guards and a Walgreens worker who was on her way to work.
“I just seen a guy going to town on, I guess, the ground or whatever,” Patricia Cox said. “I didn’t know what was going on. …
A man turned himself in at the Beverly Hills Police Department at about 4:30 a.m. in connection with the destroyed star.
Trump’s star had to be replaced after being vandalized in October 2016 by a man dressed as a construction worker. James Otis used a pix ax and a sledgehammer then, and later pleaded no contest to felony vandalism.
Since Trump announced his candidacy and his subsequent election, the star has been a magnet for visitors unhappy with the current political climate. It has been defaced by tourists and dogs, had a model of a border wall built around it, and covered with “I resist” stickers.
All of which make perpetrators feel good about themselves, and … well, that’s just about it. All of these attacks, on a sidewalk or on other such locations, are the political equivalent of masturbation. It doesn’t even have the political impact of an honest, legal protest, which requires at least some coherent thought and rhetoric. Instead of mindless lust, it’s mindless rage, directed at an object no one really cares about except the people who will have to pay to have it repaired. And repaired and replaced it inevitably will be, which makes this exercise entirely pointless except for the revenue the city will get from the fines it will impose on the perpetrator.
But hey, at least the perp didn’t have to do any real work, like make an argument or organize to change the status quo. Probably because he’s incapable of either, frankly.”
What is wrong with these people? It’s okay to not agree with the president, or have voted for Hillary Clinton instead of him, and express your own opinion about what he’s doing in office, but it’s unacceptable for an adult to do that by vandalizing. What makes it worse is that in doing so, he’s supported by many others who somehow accept this as a good expression of speech and allegedly financially support him in doing so. That, combined with the notoriety he receives from it, is a winning combination for attention deprived activists.
Bail handouts or not, until some of these vandals and anti-Trump attackers are locked up for pulling stunts like this, things won’t stop. Maybe if all these so-called “resist” people focused on what they could do for their own lives to improve them, rather than blaming all their issues on Trump being president, they would find meaning in their life, rather than lurking around in the middle of the night destroying public property.
Hillary’s Big TV Sitcom Debut Coming To CBS This Fall With An Infuriating Show Theme
“It was a privilege to experience their perspectives and discourse…”
Hillary Clinton is set to be a guest-star who will star as herself when she makes an appearance on a major sitcom. The show will also feature two other former secretaries of the state. It’s the show on CBS titled Madam Secretary and Hillary will be on the show along with Madeleine Albright and Colin Powell. They will play themselves on the show, which might be infuriating to some people as not everyone appears to be a fan of Hillary Clinton thanks to all the alleged scandals she’s been involved in.
It appears as though it might only be a single episode, but the fact that Clinton, the most scandalous of the three former secretaries, would be playing herself. People might wonder if part of her debut will show her deleting emails one at a time. Will the show go into what happened with Benghazi? Will the show discuss Clinton having the Democratic nominee ripped out of Bernie Sanders heart? Although, that part is ironic because socialist Sanders learned what it felt like to have something he worked for taken and given to someone else.
Is Hillary hoping to have the same success on the big screen that Roseanne did? Not sure that will happen considering the number of people who are very upset with Clinton and her allegations.
“The fictional secretary of state of CBS’ Madam Secretary will turn to three former real-life holders of the post when the show begins its fifth season this fall.
Hillary Clinton, Colin Powell and Madeleine Albright will appear as themselves in the episode, set to air Sunday, Oct. 7. The trio filmed their cameos on July 11, Madam Secretary‘s first week back in production.
“We’re delighted to have these three former secretaries of state be part of our season premiere,” said series creator and executive producer Barbara Hall. “It was a privilege to experience their perspectives and discourse both in and behind the scenes.”
Added executive producer Lori McCreary: “Having three powerhouses of diplomacy agree to come on our show is awe-inspiring and humbling. And that we were able to find a time in their busy schedules when they were all available is a miracle.”
In the episode, Secretary of State Elizabeth McCord (Tea Leoni) asks Albright, Powell and Clinton for advice on a delicate matter.
Albright served as secretary of state from 1997-2001 under President Bill Clinton and was the first woman to hold the post. She has appeared on Madam Secretary once before, guest-starring early in season two. She also has played herself on Parks and Recreation and Gilmore Girls.
Powell was President George W. Bush’s secretary of state from 2001-05. The former chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff had an uncredited cameo on JAG in 1997.
Clinton served under President Barack Obama as secretary of state from 2009-13. She did a cameo on Broad City in 2016 and appeared opposite her Saturday Night Live portrayer, Kate McKinnon, in 2015.”
Good thing it’s just a cameo because I’m not sure Hillary’s health would hold up with the brutal schedule that some actors go through. Hours of makeup, multiple takes, and that doesn’t even include walking up and down steps in foreign countries. On that note, it might include an updated wardrobe to help get Hillary out of those pantsuits and muumuus.
Keep your eyes peeled for this episode as it will likely go viral once commentators pick apart the pieces worth sharing on news outlets and social media.
If you’re wondering about Roseanne’s success, then here’s an excerpt from Deadline: “The ratings records keep coming for the debut of ABC’s Roseanne revival last week. After setting a new record for the largest-ever total viewer Live+3 lift, the sitcom’s Season 10 opener has scored TV’s largest-ever Total Viewer L+7 increase for any single telecast on any network with a big +8.81 million viewer lift over its L+SD tally. That topped the previous high,+7.86 million gain for the 9/25/17 debut of ABC’s new drama The Good Doctor. After seven days of delayed viewing, the audience of the Roseanne premiere has grown to 27.26 million total viewers (from 18.45 million in Live+Same Day).”
Hillary probably won’t come anywhere close to getting numbers like these. In fact, this is the first time I’ve ever heard of the show Madam Secretary, so maybe it’s not that popular anyway. Having Hillary on the show now seems like nothing more than a gimmick to pick up some viewers.
