ABC Insists Politics Had Nothing To Do With Cancellation Of Smash Hit ‘Last Man Standing’

ABC has again come out swinging against allegations that it cancelled Tim Allen’s high-performing show ‘Last Man Standing’ due to its deviation from Hollywood’s standard liberal schtick.

As Breitbart reports, the show “was one of the few shows on network television to approach its worldview through a conservative lens, while Allen himself is politically conservative.”

Allen’s conservatism has gotten him in trouble at least once, when he compared being a conservative in Hollywood to living in 1930s Germany.

“You’ve gotta be real careful around here,” he told Jimmy Kimmel in March. “You get beat up if you don’t believe what everybody believes.”

As a Guardian report from that time stated, Allen was subsequently condemned by The Anne Frank Center for Mutual Respect (which has nothing to do with Anne Frank).

Despite that and Allen’s other brushes with the liberal thought police, ABC Entertainment President Channing Dungey insists that the network’s May decision to cancel ‘Last Man Standing’ was not politically-motivated.

“Politics had absolutely nothing to do with it,” The Daily Mail quotes Dungey as telling reporters.

“We have actors on our shows who have all sorts of political views. Tim Allen is a valuable part of the Disney family and has been for a very long time.”

Despite acknowledging that ‘Last Man Standing’ was a “high quality show,” Dungey went on to state that it was axed simply because time for it could not be found in ABC’s schedule.

As The Daily Mail reports, ‘Last Man Standing,’ ABC’s most popular comedy last season, pulled an average of 5.89 million viewers per show in its sixth season – more than many of the other shows ABC was able to find time in the schedule for.

“Some have speculated that the reason for the cancellation is that Robert Iger, the chairman and CEO of ABC’s parent company, The Walt Disney Company, was muling a run for President as a Democrat in 2020 earlier this year,” The Daily Mail further reports, citing a report from The Hollywood Reporter quoting Iger as stating a number of people have been urging him to run.

Whatever the reason for the show’s cancellation, many – including Tim Allen himself – did not see it coming.

Video: Michael Jackson’s Daughter Slams Trump, Calls For Resistance At MTV Awards Ceremony

Paris Jackson, the late Michael Jackson’s daughter, took a jab at President Donald Trump during the MTV Video Music Awards in Inglewood, California tonight, calling for resistance.

“If we were to all put our voices together, do you realize the difference we would make?” the 19-year-old Paris, who works as a model, stated according to Breitbart.

“If we were to all stand up united as one, our impact, it would be huge. Believe me, huge. And that’s not fake news.”

Paris further declared, “we must show these Nazi white supremacist jerks in Charlottesville and all over the country that as a nation with liberty as our slogan, we have zero tolerance for their violence, their hatred, and their discrimination. We must resist!”

See some of Paris’ remarks – which are so incredibly brave because she’ll totally lose her career for her boldness – below.

As Breitbart reports, the political agenda at the VMAs did not end with Paris’ remarks.

The ceremony’s organizers were also sure to invite six transgender military members onto the red carpet.

Interesting, of course, is the fact that MTV literally never did this during the 7 years Obama’s military excluded transgender troops.

Still, that didn’t stop one transgender veteran – Laila Ireland – from claiming to Billboard, “historically, the VMAs have been a huge platform for social issues that are currently happening, so being able to have the platform and share our stories is important to us.”

VMAs host Katy Perry – who is looking more and more like Justin Bieber the more she delves into the world of feminism – also got candidly political, claiming the world is currently experiencing an “apocalypse.”

Meanwhile in the real world, inhabitants of Texas are currently dealing with the disastrous effects of Hurricane Harvey.

According to The Guardian, two deaths have been confirmed in Houston, emergency officials in which reportedly received more than 56,000 calls for help between Saturday evening and 1pm on Sunday.

Some parts of the area are expected to see an entire year’s worth of rain over the next week as the weather system associated with Hurricane Harvey continues to unleash what FEMA’s director has described as Texas’ worst disaster in history.

Tennessee Theater Bans ‘Gone With The Wind’ Over Complaints Of Insensitivity

A theater in Tennessee is cancelling all future showings of Gone With The Wind because of complaints made following its last showing at the theater.

First leftists came for Confederate statues. One man was even caught trying to blow up a Confederate statue in Houston. One girl even started a petition to replace confederate monuments with statues of Britney Spears.

Then, the leftists came for things that weren’t even Confederate in the first place. They tried to attack a mascot, a horse named Traveler, trying to connect it to Robert E. Lee. Speaking of mistaking people for Robert E. Lee, ESPN actually rescheduled an Asian-American sportscaster because his name was Robert Lee.

Now, they’re coming for ‘Gone With The Wind’ – an acclaimed 1939 film about a Civil War-era plantation.

WREG is reporting on the Orpheum Theater’s decision to ban the film:

“While title selections for the series are typically made in the spring of each year, the Orpheum has made this determination early in response to specific inquiries from patrons,” the Orpheum group said.

The outlet further reports:

“As an organization whose stated mission is to ‘entertain, educate and enlighten the communities it serves’, the Orpheum cannot show a film that is insensitive to a large segment of its local population,” the theater’s operators said in a statement.

The theater’s last screening of Gone With The Wind on August 11 reportedly drew several negative comments despite the fact that the historic theater has shown the film numerous times in the past several decades.

The rest of the Orpheum’s 2018 film roster will be made available in the spring of 2018.

News of Gone With The Wind’s blacklisting have prompted quite a stir online.

The alt-left has extended their hate to all sorts of inanimate objects – what will be next?

Report: Stuntwoman Killed On Set Of Deadpool 2 Was An Unqualified Diversity Hire

A stuntwoman killed on the set of ‘Deadpool 2’ was reportedly known to be too inexperienced for the maneuver but was instructed to complete it anyways because her being an African-American woman was important to producers.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, S.J. Harris died on August 14 in Vancouver while filming a scene in which she was supposed to “exit a building, descend a ramp over three small stairs and stop on a nearby landing” while on a Ducati motorcycle.

“For a stunt professional,” the outlet reports, “it would have been a cinch. But Harris had never even been on a film shoot before.”

The Hollywood Reporter states that in the days before the shoot for the scene, “the crew was said to be growing increasingly agitated and nervous about the potential for something to go wrong.”

“She was improving, but I was watching her and, oh my God, I thought, ‘it’s just a matter of time before she crashes into a wall or runs somebody over,'” The Hollywood Reporter quotes one stunt performer as stating.

Despite the fact that Harris reportedly crashed the stunt vehicle several times while training, the film’s producers allegedly would not heed warnings from the stunt team about Harris’ unsuitability for the stunt.

As a result, Canada’s WorkSafeBC reports that Harris – during the first live take of the scene – “continued driving beyond the planned stopping spot on the stairway landing and continued to drive down a second ramp built over the bottom stairs and across the roadway.”

Harris reportedly kept moving until she slammed into a concrete curb and “was thrown off the motorcycle and propelled through a plate-glass window of a building.”

According to Vulture, the character Harris was filling in for was Zazie Beetz’s Domino – an African-American member of the X-Force.

Producers reportedly had the option of having one of the more readily available white stuntmen in Hollywood complete the stunt but were under pressure to have a stunt actor of the same race and gender as Domino perform the stunt.

Productions in the past have come under fire for looking outside of a character’s race/gender for a stunt double, such as in the case of Gotham, whose producers decided to have a white stuntwoman paint herself black to fill in for a black actress. After considerable backlash, they recanted and cast a black stuntwoman – of which there are reportedly not very many – instead.
