John Goodman Breaks His Silence on Roseanne Cancellation

Ambien Maker Sanofi to Roseanne Barr: No, Our Sleeping Pill Doesn't Cause Racism

ABC pulled the show in a matter of hours after Barr sent a tweet comparing Jarrett, who is black, to an ape.

The comedian Livia Scott tweeted that while Kimmel might know Barr personally, "this is the time for a text to her, not a tweet to us".

She also faulted Iger for not apologizing to Trump after ESPN personality Jemele Hill called Trump a "white supremacist".

There has been a ton of reactions to USA network ABC's decision to cancel its popular sitcom Roseanne after its star, Roseanne Barr, tweeted a racist comment about former Barack Obama staffer Valerie Jarrett.

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

At the end of the news conference, one reporter shouted: "Where is the president's apology for the things he's said over the years?"

U.S. President Donald Trump sought an apology on Thursday from the executive behind ABC's cancellation of sitcom "Roseanne" over the comedian's racist tweet, citing critical coverage in the network's news reporting on him. "He may say the tweet, but someone is typing it in...she needed someone to wrangle her in and take her phone".

One post she retweeted read: '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.

TMZ: 'Deadliest Catch' capt Blake Painter dies in Astoria
"Deadliest Catch" captain Blake Painter was found dead in his OR home Friday, the Clatsop County Sheriff's Office confirmed. Police discovered Painter's body after a friend became concerned when he had not heard from him in a few days.

"I honestly thought she was Jewish and Persian", she said.

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

Barr often spouts right-wing conspiracy theories on her Twitter account, and has found herself in social media hot water countless times before. "I made a mistake I wish I hadn't.don't defend it please". "I just want to apologize to the hundreds of people, and wonderful writers (all liberal) and talented actors who lost their jobs on my show due to my stupid tweet".

"I think Joe Rogan is right about Ambien", Barr wrote in a since-deleted tweet Tuesday night. First, Michael Fishman, who played D.J. Conner on the show, tweeted that Tuesday's chain of events made the day among the hardest in his life.

When Barr mentioned her own campaign for president in 2012, Kimmel said, "you were kind of the original insane tweeter running for president". "I hope you can accept this honest apology!"

Barr seemed to liken the reaction from her co-stars and those a supporter called "her underlings" to the way Trump complains about members of his administration being "disloyal".

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".
