Short thread...

1. ABC canceled its #1 rated show, #Rosanne, because she compared Valarie Jarrett to an Ape. FYI, Jarret isn’t black, so apparently it’s racist to refer to anyone an ape.

But does that insult the person or the ape? ...just asking for a friend...

2. Comparing people to primates has been a thing ever since humans developed language and before that we probably did it through signs and grunts.

If it is now “racist” to call a person an ape, the Media and Hollywood better get right on banning Shakespeare...
3. who frequently used “ape” as a term of contempt, including the well known phrase, "to lead apes in hell”. Can’t be subjecting fragile snowflakes to such abhorrent and vile verbiage.

Oh, and don’t forget to fire Bill Maher while you’re at it.
