Asian-American Bob's Burgers writer shares the aftermath of criticizing a Roseanne joke
Kelvin Yu, who also appears on Master of None, went viral with his tweets slamming Roseanne for a joke taking a shot at Black-ish and Fresh Off the Boat. "Many of the comments I received were supportive — retweets, likes and the always flattering fist emoji," he writes in The New York Times. "However, I have to admit that the loudest voices to me were the ones that were vitriolic and shockingly mean," including racially disparaging remarks. Yu writes that he found it "so galling that a show celebrating ostensibly marginalized Americans would consider shows about even more marginalized Americans a punch line, tossed off between two yawns and a meh, followed by a roomful of people laughing. And although, admittedly, I have no idea what it means to be white or working class, there are at least a half-dozen shows out there through which I can experience it vicariously. Meanwhile, white working-class people have one — and only one — current network show to help them understand the lives of Asian-Americans (hint: it rhymes with Shmesh Off the Shmoat)."
- Even the haters should appreciate Roseanne: "When a TV show — or any pop culture artifact — is drawing that kind of a mass audience, it has something to tell us about ourselves and the times in which we live"

James Franco’s grilling at the hands of Stephen Colbert and Seth Meyers shows how much late-night has changed in the #MeToo era
“In previous eras,” says Alison Herman, “a host like Meyers would be much more unambiguously on the side of his fellow public figure rather than his skeptical audience. Smoothing over scandal, after all, is part of the image-burnishing job. The fact that late-night hosts are even in this position speaks to the growing reach of Hollywood’s anti-harassment groundswell, which began with Weinstein, a man whose influence had finally waned enough for accusations not to be immediately suppressed. The movement has since spread to encompass celebrities still enjoying the spotlight and the protection it affords — so much so that they’re asked to answer for alleged indiscretions at the same time as they’re attending fancy galas and fronting multibillion-dollar enterprises.”
