Roseanne Barr Blames Michelle Obama For The Cancellation Of Her ABC Show!

Roseanne Barr Blames Michelle Obama For The Cancellation Of Her ABC Show!

In other tweets, Barr said that she was exhausted of "being attacked and belittled more than other comedians who have said worse" and asked for people not to boycott ABC, saying that the network has the right to "do what they wish".

Ms. Barr's on-set presence had also mellowed significantly from what it was during the show's initial run in the 1990s, when she developed a reputation for being hard to work with and treating her writers with little respect.

Kimmel's Twitter response to the Barr firing comes just after the host jokingly pitched a "Roseanne" spin-off featuring just John Goodman on his Tuesday night show.

The president's latest tweet comes after the network canceled its hit reboot of "Roseanne" after Barr tweeted that former Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett was a child of the Islamist organization the Muslim Brotherhood and the movie "Planet of the Apes". "I want us to be better than that, that's what I mean by the cream rises to the top that we don't need to do that".

Michael Fishman, who played DJ, called Barr's tweet "reprehensible and intolerable" and "truly offensive" and said: 'We must stand up against bias, hatred, bigotry and ignorance'. "He may say the tweet, but someone is typing it in".

President Donald Trump on Wednesday broke his silence about the racism row engulfing supporter Roseanne Barr, not to condemn her outburst but to attack ABC television for broadcasting "horrible" statements against himself.

Barr later apologised for what she called a "joke".

"Then you've heard more than I have", he said.

He said he doesn't know anything about Barr's tweets, including one that featured a racial slur against Valerie Jarrett, a former aide to President Obama. "And then if her insane tweets came out, she could point to that and say, 'But I have taken a step back'".

Barr lashed back early Wednesday, replying, "i created the platform for that inclusivity and you know it. ME".

Trump is implying that he is the victim of a liberal media double standard. In one tweet, she admitted that her assumption was "ignorant of me for sure". I made a awful mistake [that] caused hundreds of ppl 2 lose their jobs.

All the support on Twitter seems to have given Barr second thoughts about quietly accepting her show's cancelation.

On Tuesday, Barr apologised to Mrs Jarrett and pledged to give up Twitter.

"I have an idea that I think makes this work for everyone", he said.

The on-demand service didn't mention the network of the show by name, but nonetheless sent some shade towards ABC for formerly championing the controversial show.
