  • Netflix got involved in the scandal over "Roseanne" being pulled by ABC.
  • It tweeted that maybe the audience would prefer one of its own shows instead.
  • "One Day At A Time" has notably not been tainted by racism.

Netflix weighed in on the "Roseanne" racism scandal on Twitter, suggesting that viewers should ditch ABC and watch its shows instead.

The on-demand service didn't mention the network of the show by name, but nonetheless sent some shade towards ABC for formerly championing the controversial show.

The tweet, sent on Wednesday, said: "Reminder: @OneDayAtATime is a sitcom about a tight-knit, working class family that tackles extremely topical social issues in a smart and innovative way. Ya know, if you're suddenly looking for a show like that…"

Its plug for "One Day At A Time" is a pretty close description of "Roseanne," which went down in flames earlier this week after its star Roseanne Barr sent a racist tweet about Obama advisor Valerie Jarrett.

ABC pulled the show in a matter of hours after Barr sent a tweet comparing Jarrett, who is black, to an ape.

"Roseanne" had been getting huge ratings and attracting a lot of credit for ABC, not least because it focused on middle America, and had a Trump-supporting lead character, a demographic which is often ignored by TV.

However, Barr's tweets caused too much controversy, and ABC pulled the plug.

Netflix has a strong social media game and isn't afraid to roll up its sleeves and tangle with rivals. The "Roseanne" subtweet is the latest example of that.
