Roseanne Barr is still catching heat after her racially-charged tweet against Obama advisor Valerie Jarrett led to Roseanne's shocking cancellation by ABC Entertainment. They do it because we have a white trash racist president. On the heels of Barr's racist tweet about former Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett, the star of the ABC series said she was quitting Twitter before ABC Entertainment president Channing Dungey chose to ax the sitcom. "She's allowed to have an opinion but this was different ... this was untenable", the source said.
Gilbert, who appeared in the series since it began in 1988 as Barr's on-screen daughter Darlene, had said she was "disappointed" by Barr's comments which "do not reflect the beliefs of our cast and crew or anyone associated with our show".
ABC Entertainment's president announced the network was pulling the plug after Barr tweeted that Jarrett, who now serves on several corporate boards and is a senior fellow at the University of Chicago Law School, is the product of the "muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes".
Tom Werner, executive producer of the original "Roseanne" and its update, agreed with ABC's cancellation.
Barr sounds like she would support such a development.
'[D] iscussions will continue today on whether it makes sense to keep the other actors but potentially design a new series around them - ergo, the Bonners, or whatever you want to call Goodman, Metcalf, and the clan of misfits, ' EW say.
On feeling it wouldn't last long: "I was not surprised that what went down and that the show was canceled".
Arnold also questioned whether Trump was really ever a fan of his former wife or just wanted to take credit for her ratings' success.
"The president is the president of all people, and damn it, I wish he would start acting like it", she added.
Will And Grace star Debra Messing tweeted that she was in "tears" after hearing Roseanne had been cancelled. Dungey's boss, network chief Ben Sherwood, even joked then: "If anyone came to play a drinking game based on how many times we mention 'Roseanne, ' you're welcome".
Barr's post-firing tweets included an apology to those who lost their jobs because of her words, but her choice of retweets struck a defiant tone.
The woman whose public tweet cost them their jobs thinks they need her forgiveness for having tweeted their alarm over that racist remark.
