Trump weighs in on cancellation of 'Roseanne'

Trump weighs in on cancellation of 'Roseanne'

Barr also hit back at former co-star Sara Gilbert, who played her daughter Darlene Conner on the show.

Roseanne Barr has gone from an apology to everyone who worked on her ABC sitcom for her "stupid" tweet that cost them their jobs, to attacking any of them who dared to denounce/despair over that tweet comparing Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett to an ape. Barr tweeted: "muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby (equals) vj".

Since then, Barr has been writing about her regrets, moving forward after the scandal to try and help the less fortunate, and even claiming she will seek help to get her medication fixed, as she wrote in a now-deleted tweet.

With ABC's cancellation of Roseanne, comedic actress Roseanne Barr's ex-husband Tom Arnold suggested Barr-who lost her show over a racist tweet-wanted her popular series to end. "I made a mistake I wish I hadn't but...don't defend it, please. ty [thank you]". "I think that is why I am so glad to be here this evening talking with all of you".

Donald Trump took to Twitter to address Trump supporter Roseanne Barr's racist comments on Wednesday, singling out Walt Disney Company CEO Bob Iger. Chief Executive Officer Bob Iger, saying the company's ABC network never apologized for "horrible statements" said about the president on air. "If it hadn't happened yesterday, this season would have been so very bad for everyone every day because she would have felt like she was (being) taken advantage (of), just like when I left the show".

Despite the significant viewership ratings Barr was bringing in, ABC chose to terminate her show's revival in light of the ludicrous, racist statements she made yesterday on Twitter.

Chinese citizens seeking visas who work as researchers or managers for specific companies flagged by the U.S. Commerce Department will need special clearance from a number of U.S. agencies, according to the AP.

He was said to be working on Fahrenheit 11/9, an anti-Trump documentary and quasi-sequel to Fahrenheit 9/11.

Trump wrote that Iger never called him to apologize for "the terrible statements" that have been said about him on ABC.

"Don't feel sorry for me, guys!", Roseanne tweeted initially.

BREAKING: According to sources ABC President Channing Dungey had a long conversation via phone with former First Lady Michelle Obama before deciding to cancel the Roseanne show.

When questioned about the fallout Goodman chose not to comment directly on the 65-year-old's actions but assured fans that "everything's fine", insisting he was completely oblivious to the controversy. The closest analogy is CBS pulling the plug on the Smothers Brothers variety show due to their anti-war views in the late 1960s and the same network not renewing "Lou Grant" at its peak, which star Ed Asner always contended was due to his outspoken political beliefs.
