Donald Trump Responds to Roseanne Cancellation

Adjust Comment Print

On the same night as her Jarrett tweet, she posted a false claim about Chelsea Clinton that Clinton refuted, and accused George Soros of being a Nazi. Later, she moderated her stance: "no, I understand her position and why she said what she said. i forgive her. I tweeted a lot to watch out because I could see it coming".

Hours after ABC axed her show for her offensive tweet about former Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett - and quickly breaking a promise to stay off Twitter - the comedian was back on the social media platform. Barr was his headache then; he recalled having to go to her home where she was holed up with Tom Arnold for a few weeks and refusing to work in 1994, and coax her out.

Rather than distancing himself from Barr's racist remarks, Trump jumped right into the argument about whether she was subjected to a double standard.

"I have only taken Ambien once ... but I don't remember one of the side-effects being racism", CNN's John Berman tweeted.

Roseanne Barr unleashed a fresh batch of controversial tweets overnight and into Wednesday morning, blaming a prescription sleeping pill for the racist comment that got her show canceled - and lashing out at her co-stars for "throwing her under the bus". Not surprised and I wouldn't doubt it being very true, ' another tweet said. She also apologized to the many writers and actors who are now unemployed thanks to her incivility.

While Barr has had her supporters throughout the backlash - after tweeting out a racist comment about a former aide to Barack Obama - the question Fox, or any network or streaming service has to ask is, "Would there be enough viewers left?"

Basing a game around it is significant because of that, but also give free reign to make it nearly anything. It was to everyone's surprise that Bethesda announced something Fallout related was coming to E3 this year.

Barr also seemed stunned by Gilbert's admonition, writing, "Wow! unreal." in response to Gilbert.

Her Twitter account had a manic feel throughout the morning.

Another retweet, still up as of 7 a.m. ET, quoted Herman Cain on Fox saying "I believe they were looking for a reason to cancel #Roseanne and here's why". Trump called her up when "Roseanne" drew record ratings for its premiere in March. Some of the retweets promoted conspiracy theories and anti-ABC grievances.

If he were in Dungey's position when the rebooted "Roseanne" was being considered - mindful that his job is to produce hits, or it won't be his job much longer - Harbert said he probably would have taken several meetings with Barr to figure out how she was doing. A way to keep the cast and crew together in some way?

It's unclear if "Roseanne's" 10th season will be eligible for any Emmys.
