Donald Trump Responds to Roseanne Cancellation

Former Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett suggests President Trump's 'tone' is partly to blame for Roseanne's racist tweet

President Donald Trump, noting in a tweet that Robert Iger, CEO of ABC's parent Walt Disney Co., had called Jarrett to apologize, wondered why ABC hadn't apologized for "HORRIBLE statements made and said about me on ABC".

Trump tweeted that the CEO of ABC's parent company called Valerie Jarrett to say the network wouldn't tolerate Barr's tweet about her. Trump wrote that CEO Bob Iger never call him to apologize for "the disgusting statements" that have been said about him on ABC". Trump tweeted that maybe he "just didn't get the call".

It's unclear what specifically Trump is referring to. Barr, who insisted she is "moving on", deleted that tweet, too.

Barr has since blamed her behavior on the sleep aid Ambien. She reposted a tweet by Sara Gilbert, the actress who played her daughter, Darlene, on the show and served as executive producer. Gilbert had called Barr's initial comments "abhorrent", saying they "do not reflect the beliefs of our cast and crew or anyone associated with our show".

"I just knew that this would not end well", Arnold said. "It's all ok", she wrote.

Roseanne Barr wanted her television show to be canceled, her ex-husband Tom Arnold said in interviews with CNN and The Hollywood Reporter on Wednesday. "ME", Barr wrote. "You throw me under the bus. nice!"

The company's response followed Barr's odd explanation of the early Tuesday Twitter rant that got her show cancelled as a awful Ambien-fueled mistake. She wrote of Sykes, "her tweet made ABC very nervous and they cancelled the show".

Sterlite protest: How it began; what next
The company has appealed to government and authorities to ensure safety of our employees, facilities, and surrounding communities. On Monday, the government issued orders to close Vedanta's first copper smelter unit, whose capacity is 400,000 tonne per annum.

He went on to say that when he read Barr's social media and the "conspiracy stuff with Donald Trump", that she was "fargone".

Barr first blamed the medication on the tweet that caused a firestorm in a few tweets on Tuesday: "guys I did something unforgiveable so do not defend me".

- What will ABC schedule Tuesdays at 8 p.m. this fall in place of "Roseanne?".

Barr continued tweeting on Wednesday afternoon.

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

The French pharmaceutical giant Sanofi was quick to push back - trolling Barr in an acerbic post that quickly went viral.

"While all pharmaceutical treatments have side effects, racism is not a known side effect of any Sanofi medication", tweeted the French pharmaceutical giant in an acerbic post that quickly went viral.
