President Trump Weighs In on Controversial Roseanne Tweet

Invision  AP File

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 awful statements" that have been said about him on ABC".

By that afternoon, ABC had canceled its highly watched revival of the "90s hit "Roseanne", which had earned favorable reviews".

One right-wing activist even went as far as to accuse ABC Entertainment President Channing Dungey of consulting former first lady Michelle Obama before cancelling her show.

On Tuesday morning, Barr tweeted she would be leaving social media but within hours she was back, criticizing her former co-stars.

Goodman's voluntary ignorance also extends to chatter of him starring in a spinoff series without Roseanne Barr's involvement.

"So you have to suspect that she knew that the things she was saying on Twitter were inappropriate and controversial, and she knew that those could potentially harm her employment", Ramsey said.

Barr originally said she did something "unforgivable", "egregious" and "indefensible", before suggesting the tweets were a result of taking sleeping pills. "They decided that their career ambitions, or desire to return to network television, or financial interests would best be served by looking the other way".

Roseanne Barr has always been a controversial figure, and certainly, in the years since her ABC sitcom initially went off the air, her views have become increasingly weird and extreme.

Last week, BJP President Amit Shah had said that a plan is being worked upon to check petrol prices in the country. As the Modi government completed 4 years in office, the price of fuel continues to rise.

Both former executives praised ABC for moving swiftly when presented with Barr's tweet. Australia's Network Ten followed later Wednesday, "appalled and disgusted" by Barr's tweet.

Valerie Jarrett speaks at an event at Hearst Tower on May 9, 2017 in NY.

Barr still claims she was just joking when she compared Jarrett to "Planet of the Apes" and the Muslim Brotherhood in a tweet on Tuesday morning. I viewed those tweets as obvious lunacy, the easily-dismissed ramblings of an unhinged personality.

The streaming service Hulu also said it would be removing the sitcom from its library.

Barr told a supporter of Sykes: "her tweet made ABC very nervous and they cancelled the show". It had been renewed for an 11th season just two months ago.

"It has been 24 years, so I don't know that I know who Roseanne is", he says.

"ABC lost maybe $1 billion from this; this show was grinding out money hand over fist and they lost it all because somebody didn't say, 'Get that phone out of her hand, '" Arnold told The Hollywood Reporter.
