ABC has cancelled Roseanne after comedian's racist tweet

"I'm fine. I'm anxious about all the people out there who don't have a circle of friends and followers who come right to their defense", said Jarrett in an in an interview with MSNBC during a town hall focused on 'Everyday Racism in America'. He was ABC's top programming executive during the first run of "Roseanne" in the 1990s.

Kim hosted a local roundtable with Jarrett and Seattle Asian American Pacific Islander community leaders in 2013.

The president reveled in the show's success this spring, especially after Barr's character came out as a supporter of his policies.

The Trump tweet continued, "Gee, he never called President Donald J. Trump to apologize for the awful statements made and said about me on ABC".

Barr also criticized her co-stars overnight, including Michael Fishman, who played her youngest child, D.J., on her hit show "Roseanne" and its revival, for speaking out against her. "And then if her insane tweets came out, she could point to that and say, 'But I have taken a step back'". "I don't read it", he said of Barr's tweeting.

But not everyone turned their back on the beleaguered comedian after her self-inflicted public relations nightmare (although Barr blames sleeping pills).

CEO Bob Iger, keeping up a line of criticism he's lodged since subsidiary ABC cancelled Roseanne Barr's show and apologized to a former Barack Obama adviser for a racist comment the actress made about her.




Finally, Arnold, who married Barr in 1990 and split from her in 1994, concluded, "It has been 24 years, so I don't know that I know who Roseanne is". She apologized to those who had lost their jobs because of her action, but also condemned cast members who threw her under the bus, in her words.

"Now when they hear somebody like Roseanne make this comparison, they know where it comes from and they know it's not a joke", Ellis explained.

On Wednesday, Barr said that it was tweeting under the influence of the prescription sleep aid Ambien that led her to post a racist remark. "Yes, she made a disgusting joke and she apologized".

"She has been all over the map with it", Zimmerman said.

"She's known Trump for 30 years like I have", he said.

On his podcast, The Joe Rogan Experience, Joe Rogan shared a similar sentiment on Wednesday, saying Barr had recently confided in him that the show was putting her under major stress, saying, "I need to adjust my meds, I'm not thinking straight". "I will examine all of my options carefully and get back to U".
