ABC's "Roseanne" stars Emma Kenney as Harris Conner.

Trump on Wednesday night tweeted that Iger never apologized to him for "the awful statements made and said about me on ABC". She criticized Democratic financier George Soros and tweeted that Chelsea Clinton was "Chelsea Soros Clinton", implying she was married to a nephew of Soros.

"It was 2 in the morning and I was ambien tweeting", the actress tweeted on Tuesday evening. "Whereas all pharmaceutical remedies have uncomfortable side effects, racism just isn't a recognized facet impact of any Sanofi treatment", the corporate wrote.

In another tweet to a fan, Barr revealed she had forgiven Gilbert, 43: "I understand her position and why she said what she said. i forgive her".


One person who claims he saw Roseanne Barr's Twitter scandal coming is her ex-husband, Tom Arnold.

Oh, and if you were wondering whether those lovable pranksters at Dictionary.com got involved... of course they did.

The real-life Roseanne Barr is different than "Roseanne", the character.

ABC Entertainment President Channing Dungey denounced the tweets and announced the series had been canceled Tuesday, leading many on social media to either agree with what had happened, or demanding the network doesn't stop there.


What did the White House say?

"If Roseanne is sorry and it sounds like she is sorry... if she makes amends with this with her community and family and friends I think she should get back to work".

The tweet in question referred to Jarrett as looking like the offspring of the "Muslim Brotherhood & Planet of the Apes". It's also worth noting that Barr has a history of retweeting conspiracy theories. It was a ratings' hit then and now, but Barr's questionable comments and extremely conservative beliefs had led others to boycott the show.

That one tweet, however, has brought attention to Barr's other outrageous tweets, which have targeted former Obama official Susan Rice and George Soros.

"I was surprised that [ABC] didn't do anything about it.", he said, recalling how he felt prior to the network canceling the sitcom. "And he said to me, oh my gosh, you married up in the world".


"Good riddance", he tweeted about the "Roseanne" cancellation.
