She calls herself the “PC police”. The Roseanne Show writer who is responsible for writing the lines for Roseanne’s far-left sister, Jackie, will not be returning to the hugely successful hit show next year. Could her departure have anything to do with the rumors that ABC would be dialing back the political content in next season’s wildly popular Roseanne Show?

Whitney Cummings, a co-showrunner who says she acted as “the PC police” for the new “Roseanne” television series, will not be returning to the show next season.

An executive producer for “Roseanne” made the announcement Friday, according to an article by The Hollywood Reporter:

“During a Friday morning conference call with reporters, executive producer Bruce Helford revealed that Whitney Cummings — who served alongside him as co-showrunner — will not be returning for season 11.”

At a Hollywood Reporter roundtable early this year, Cummings described herself as the show’s “PC police”:

“I became the PC police this time. I was the ‘you can’t say that anymore’ and ‘now this is the word we use’ one. And they were like, ‘Yeah, but that’s not how people in this town at this age in this income bracket talk.’”

Roseanne Barr, the show’s star, has spent the past week repeatedly, and unequivocally, denying news reports that her show would abandon conservative-leaning content next season.

Immediately after reports surfaced that ABC would be dialing back the political content of the Roseanne Show, Roseanne Barr took to Twitter to denounce the rumors, tweeting:

ABC has supported my work, has NOT silenced me will NOT censor me or any of that BS. I have NOT been ‘put in my place’ or any of that stuff ppl r saying. ABC supports our new season-unlike anything EVER on TV b4.

She explained to her fans that ABC has been supportive of her show and its content with this tweet:

ABC has been nothing but supportive to me and my show and all of our ideas. The press has misrepresented what ABC President said about our new season.

News reports that ABC’s president of entertainment Channing Dungey had declared an end to the show’s political content are fake news, Roseanne has insisted in multiple tweets:

“The press has misrepresented what ABC President said about our new season.”

“ABC has been nothing but supportive to me and my show and all of our ideas,” Barr reassured her fans. –CSN News
