Tim Allen ‘overwhelmed’ by support amid ‘Roseanne’ controversy

Amid controversy that Roseanne Barr‘s character in ABC’s “Roseanne” reboot will be a President Trump supporter, fans of Tim Allen’s canceled show “Last Man Standing” have turned to social media to call for ABC to bring his series back.

“@ABCNetwork you get rid of last man standing because of its political views, yet Roseanne is pro Trump and you are gonna let her share her views. Someone is a little hypocritical and pro trump at ABC. #lastmanstanding @ofctimallen,” tweeted one fan.

“Would love to see the show give Tim Allen or his #LastManStanding character a guest shot. I’m sure Roseanne’s family would shop at Outdoor Man,” tweeted another.

Allen’s show featured conservative values, and many fans speculated that was the reason behind its cancellation. ABC denied it canceled the highly rated series over politics.

“The support from all the fans to bring back ‘Last Man Standing’ is truly overwhelming to me and so appreciated,” Allen told Page Six in a statement. “I, along with the talented writers, wonderful crew and terrific actors, would definitely entertain the idea of bringing the show back as there is so much gas left in the tank, more to be said and laughs to be had.

“I know fans would love nothing more than for us to take the cover off, fire up the engine, back this car out of the garage and get it back on the highway, full-throttle,” continued Allen, who has been vocal about his conservative values. “My sentiment sits in the front seat beside you.”

When ABC pulled the plug on the show in May, Allen tweeted that he was “stunned and blindsided.”
