While I agree with you on due process, Roseanne being fired wasn't a one strike and you're out situation. The CEO of Disney at that time, Robert Iger, described this incident in his autobiography Ride of a Lifetime.

He discussed the increasing bizarre and at times offensive tweets she had been making in person prior to the tweet that got her fired. Told her that they were jeopardizing her impressive achievements and urged her to stay off of social media while the show was running. Add in to this her rather long and colorful history of bad behavior when the show was initially running in the 90's (such as putting up lists of all the people she would fire once the show was a hit) and I'm not really surprised she was fired for this honestly.
