Hijack Their A**es: James Woods Torches ABC Execs, Calls for Roseanne To Do Her Thing

James Woods has been back on Twitter for just about one week now and he’s back in great form. And I for one am glad to see it.

We need his conservative voice on this particular social media platform, and there is just something about his perspective that cuts to the heart of the matter at hand.

For instance, a Woods tweet on Saturday addressed the wisdom, or lack thereof, of ABC execs giving the ax to a hit television show because the star expressed personal opinions in conflict with their own.

“The Connors” debuts on Tuesday, without Roseanne Barr, and there is much speculation as to whether the show will take off without her.

“I hope she hijacks their a–es for a fortune the they slip on the knee pads and start begging for her to come back,” Woods wrote.

Woods also brought up an intriguing possibility — another network picking up “Roseanne” Barr as its title character.

Great idea. “Last Man Standing” was a great Friday night ratings boost for Fox as reported by Entertainment Weekly.

The Tim Allen show was an unforced error by ABC that Fox is capitalizing on. Maybe a new “Roseanne” would be as well.

Woods poses the question on Twitter just to put a fine point on the ABC blunder.

And a little more salt in the wound from Woods just to spice it up a bit.

And the week’s Kanye controversy wouldn’t be complete without some commentary from Woods.

He tweeted:

The left has been called out all week by conservatives, but Woods put the finishing touches on the Kanye debate with this tweet about the hypocrisy of CNN host Don Lemon’s public display of affection in his mixed race relationship combined with Lemon’s criticism of Kanye West.

In the liberal world, Lemon is free to associate with white people however he chooses. But if Kanye West visits the White House, he’s embarrassing blacks everywhere.

And did Lemon really call Kanye’s visit to 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. a “minstrel show” and accuse the president of using him? Yes he did.

Are you glad to see James Woods back on Twitter?

Real Clear Politics reported Lemon said: “I have no animosity for Kanye West. I’m just going to be honest and I may get in a lot of trouble for it. I actually feel bad for him. What I saw was a minstrel show today. Him in front of all these white people embarrassing himself and embarrassing Americans, but mostly African-Americans because every one of them is sitting either at home or with their phones, watching this, cringing.”

Twitchy added this bright spot tweeted by Woods about the Kanye controversy.

“The lefty media freakout over Kanye West’s meeting with President Trump in the Oval Office yesterday has been well documented, but James Woods sees a positive sign in all that:”

While we love having Woods back on social media, Western Journal reported Wednesday that Woods thinks he’s being shadow banned.

“After a brief suspension on Twitter, actor James Woods is back at it, but is now claiming he is being censored, or shadow banned, by the social media giant.”

“On Wednesday, the conservative actor tweeted that he was hearing ‘so many reports’ of Twitter users not seeing his tweets in their timelines.”

Here’s hoping the liberal powers at social media and television companies wise up and stop this senseless attack on conservatives. James Woods brings a lot of followers to the platform. His humor and common sense, while they may not line up with liberal ideologies, should be an asset to their platforms.

I would bet more than 1.7 million followers think so.
