Comedian Jerry Seinfeld decided to weigh in on the whole Roseanne Barr firing with one key word that says everything you need to know about our politically correct world…”Overkill”

Can you imagine if half of the jokes he told in the 80’s were told today? You’d hear a huge uproar from all of the perpetually offended snowflakes.

Seinfeld was shocked and amazed that someone could be ruined by one tweet…“I never saw someone ruin their entire career with one button push…That was fresh.”

“I hate to see a comic lose a job.”

Speaking to reporters Monday about the new season of his show, “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee,” Comedian Jerry Seinfeld said it was interesting that public figures could now be brought down by a single tweet.

Last month, ABC immediately canceled Roseanne Barr’s successful “Roseanne” reboot after the she compared Obama crony Valerie Jarrett to a “Planet of the Apes” character.

The show took off like a rocket after it debuted to over 27 million viewers. As soon as Barr sent the controversial tweet, the show was canceled. ABC is trying its best to capitalize on Roseanne’s success with a spinoff but chances are good it won’t make it because Barr won’t be in the cast.

Seinfeld went on to say that Roseanne is controversial and would have eventually said something that wasn’t pc to kill the show. He then went on to say that it was “overkill” for ABC to fire Barr.
