Donald Trump Jr. accused Hollywood again of having a double standard for conservatives and liberals, using Roseanne Barr and Aziz Ansari as his latest example.
“I’m sure they’re chomping at the bit to give Rosanne and other conservatives a second chance… right? Yet another example of the rules only applying one way. At least they’re consistent. Take note,” Trump Jr. wrote on his Twitter account Monday.

Trump Jr. was referencing comments made by Netflix VP of Original Content Cindy Holland on Sunday, who said the streaming giant has “certainly given some thought” to a third season of Ansari’s “Master of None.”
“We would be happy to make another season of ‘Master of None’ when Aziz is ready,” Holland said.
The exec was responding to a question on whether Netflix would pick up another season of the show with Ansari, after a woman wrote last year she “felt violated” after going on a date with the comedian. Ansari said he believed the encounter was consensual, but that was “surprised and concerned” and “took her words to heart” in response to the article.
Barr meanwhile, saw her show, “Roseanne,” canceled by ABC after she sent out a racially-charged tweet about former Barack Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett.
Netflix, which as of this writing is not owned by ABC parent company Disney and remains a separate company, has no connection to ABC’s “Roseanne.” Netflix was therefore not involved in any ABC-Disney decision-making about Roseanne Barr.
