Charlie Rose Makes Cryptic Return to Twitter, Gets Mobbed by Fans: ‘I Miss You, the Alternatives Are S—‘

It’s unclear what former host meant by his tweet, but he was met with a large amount of love

Former broadcasting icon Charlie Rose made a return to Twitter over the weekend, putting out a single cryptic tweet containing just one letter.

“H,” wrote Rose, who offered no additional information or followup.

It’s unclear what the “H” meant. Rose did not immediately respond to a tweeted inquiry from TheWrap.

It was Rose’s first public comment on the platform since he stepped down from his post, following a flood of sexual misconduct accusations waged against him. Rose was overwhelmingly met by fans who said they missed him on the airwaves.

After being flagged by journalist Yashar Ali, several more commenters began to fill Rose’s feed to rebut his fans. One woman, Shannon Coulter responded to at least 18 Rose supporters with responses like this, or by linking to news reports of Rose’s past transgressions.

Another detractor weighed in:

Despite a decades-long broadcasting career, Rose was undone as part of the MeToo movement, which has swept Hollywood, media and politics in recent months. A Washington Post report from November said that Rose had engaged in sexual misconduct with at least eight different woman.

Just days after the story was published, Rose was fired from his job hosting “CBS This Morning” and both PBS and Bloomberg dropped his popular interview program, “Charlie Rose.”

Rose’s last tweet before Sunday was a lengthy statement of apology for years of harassment he meted out to female employees.
