    What people that understand freedom of speech has never meant speech has absolutely no consequences? That's how it's always been, that isn't my fault bud.

    They're called residuals. If the show is streamed or shown in syndication, the actors get money. The producers, of which Rossanne is one, also get money.

    Removing the old show from Hulu is aimed at stopping Rossanne herself from receiving profits. It has nothing to do with Hulu attempting to erase history, they just don't want to contribute to enrich this vile woman.

    Sadly the others may need that residual money because she probably doesn't... She's rich as shit...

    It's a bit much, TBH. Its impossible not to sound a little over-dramatic here because it's just a sitcom, but it's like erasing history because one person on the show said a bad thing. It's completely over the top, and hypocritical. I guarantee they're not getting rid of all the Weinstein flicks on their service.

    I think you have to let the audience decide in this case, like what Netflix did with Kevin Spacey.

    Not only that but free speech doesn't apply to private entities either. It just deals with government regulating speech .

    Yep it's like talking to small children. They conflate knowing how shit works with supporting it. Jobs have been firing people for saying things they don't like forever. Not new at all, social media giving everyone a platform is the only new part.


    I've said before try screaming crazy nonsense in your companies breakroom and see if they don't fire you. But people somehow think making statements millions of people can see will be treated with more lenience.

    No it is not.

    History remains unchanged. The show still aired when it aired, still got those huge ratings in its original run, still had its cultural impact in the US. Nobody is taking that from them. They are not demanding that she give back any of her Emmys or return any of the money she already made from the show.

    What they are doing is to stop doing business with her today. They are choosing to no longer enrich her today.

    Also, the Weinstein comparison is not appropriate because, as I understand it (and I may be wrong) since he was kicked out of the company he is no longer profiting from those movies.

    The House of Cards comparison is also inappropriate because that show is still in its original run. If all the allegations against Spacey had come out, say, a decade after the show had ended, there's a good chance they would pulled it out of the roster.

    I don't know his contract stipulations, so I couldn't say.

    Are his movies still in their original run too? He profits from them too, ya know.

    Even assuming for the sake of argument that she intended it as a joke, it is still a racist and offensive joke.

    It is entirely legitimate to call her out on it.

    Just stop it. Hulu doesn't give a shit about the residual money going to her. They wanted to censor her content for political reasons, end of discussion.
