Did Roseanne want her sitcom to get cancelled?

And then some sarcasm (and a third-person reference): "Gee, he never called President Donald J. Trump to apologize for the terrible statements made and said about me on ABC". In slideshow presentations pitching its streaming service to various potential investors, Bond even used the Roseanne reboot as a model for the type of programming that the company could support. And she says in one of her tweets - there were three rapid-fire today - 'It was a joke. Jarrett, who is black, was born in Iran to American parents.

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".

"Roseanne's Twitter statement is abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values, and we have chose to cancel her show", ABC entertainment president Channing Dungey said in a statement to TheWrap on Tuesday.

Iger, who reportedly apologized to Jarrett, said in a tweet on Tuesday that canceling the show was the network's only option.

Barr replied, saying, "Sorry to have tweeted incorrect info about you!I Please forgive me!"


In a now-deleted message, she wrote: "Guys I did something unforgiveable so do not defend me". She also compared the response to President Donald Trump's experiences.

Yet what he most wishes is that Barr had just apologized and left things alone.

Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter about his ex-wife's racist tweets that led to the cancellation of her sitcom "Roseanne", the 59-year-old suggested she may have "wanted" the show over.

Jarrett was one of the targets of Barr's Twitter tirade early Tuesday morning.

'They can do this because we have a white trash racist president.


"Bob Iger of ABC called Valerie Jarrett to let her know that "ABC does not tolerate comments like those" made by Rosanne Barr".

She wrote: "thanks for all your kind comments, everyone!" Though Barr quickly apologized for a joke that "was in bad taste", ABC released a terse statement from entertainment president Channing Dungey, which said: "Roseanne's Twitter statement is abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values, and we have chose to cancel her show".

Fox News personality Tomi Lahren cautioned "fellow conservatives" not to play "mental gymnastics trying to justify" Barr's tweet.

"She has been all over the map with it", Zimmerman said.

Spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders says Trump's tweet Wednesday was meant to point out media bias against him. "I will examine all of my options carefully and get back to U".
