The tweet that went too far

From The Panel, 4:07 pm on 30 May 2018

The US TV show Roseanne has been cancelled after its star posted a tweet that caused outrage.

Roseanne Barr has been called racist for her tweet to a former aide of President Obama during a tirade that featured conspiracy theories and an attack on Chelsea Clinton.

We ask the panelists how bad is too bad for social media and if they're surprised at how swiftly the network reacted.
