Barr's outburst May 29 came as one of a series of disoriented tweets she posted that inveighed against various figures in the Democratic Party and its orbit.
President Donald Trump again asked Bob Iger, the CEO of Disney, which owns ABC, to apologize to him for errors the news network's reporting on his presidency after it had canceled a show and apologized to viewers. "I created the platform for that inclusivity and you know it. ME". Backlash was swift, with many quickly slamming the comedian for her racist remarks.
"A lot of people there are just middle-class Americans making a living and now they're out of work, especially at a time when we're ramping up into production for the fall season", Rebecca Sun of the industry trade publication The Hollywood Reporter said in an interview with The Associated Press.
In a video obtained by Entertainment Tonight, Goodman, whose character is the husband of Barr's Roseanne, steered clear of commenting on Barr's racist tweet or ABC's decision to cancel the show, which was just starting preparations for Season 2. I am disappointed in her actions to say the least.
Despite "leaving Twitter" like she said she would on Tuesday, Roseanne Barr is still tweeting-except now, the former TV star isn't posting racist messages, but rather insisting she is not racist. After many years, she said, "I'm more centered, I'm in the best place that I've ever been in". "I am very sorry to have hurt you".
"We didn't know what was going to happen", Mr. Rasmussen said of her Twitter account.
Trump weighed in on the Roseanne Barr controversy for the first time Wednesday with a complaint that he never got an apology from ABC for the 'for the awful statements made and said about me on ABC'. I made a bad mistake [that] caused hundreds of ppl 2 lose their jobs. He told Cooper of a time that Trump criticized her directly after their divorce.
Jarrett said Disney Chief Executive Bob Iger called her before ABC announced the show's cancellation. One stupid joke in a lifetime of fighting for civil rights for all minorities, against networks, studios, at the expense of my nervous system/family/wealth will NEVER be taken from me, ' she said in one post. He also called Barr's statements "reprehensible and intolerable". "She is a fucking asshole, but so am I. No one ever stood up to her like I did". The actress replied to the user's statement and said, "I hear you and agree with you I am thankful that they canceled the show".
For cast and crew members that did have longer-term contracts, Barr's show-sinking tweet could be deemed, unusual as it sounds, an "act of God".
White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders told a briefing that Trump's comments were not a defense of Barr's tweet.
