    Too bad they decided to give a racial slur as its title – and the media are publishing it unapologetically.

    I am thoroughly disgusted that they think it is acceptable to use a disgusting racial slur for a title. The word G*psy is the equivalent of using the ‘N’ word, a painful, horrible reminder of centuries of slavery and oppression towards the most discriminated against ethnicity on the planet—and the oppression of the Romani people are STILL going on today.

  3. Hopefully they rethink the title of the show and use something that many consider a racial slur for Romani people.

    Tip…Hey Netflix…Xena Warrior Princess comes with a ready-made fan base. How about a revival of that program while you’re serving up Universal Television hits? Think about it for a quick minute, then jump on it! :-) Thanks

  5. Uh… just what kind of a thriller is this going to be? Between the headline and the body copy in the first paragraph, there seems to be some confusion. Oh, well, who cares? Just the idea of seeing Mama Rose as a serial killer who goes after young stippers is too good to pass up….,
