‘Roseanne’ Cast Reacts To Cancellation: Michael Fishman, Emily Kenney, Sara Gilbert

"Roseanne" was canceled by ABC shortly after Barr posted tweets referring to former Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett as the child of the Islamist organization the Muslim Brotherhood and the movie "Planet of the Apes".

In the post-firing tweet, Barr apologized to "all the wonderful writers (all liberal) and talented actors who lost jobs on my show due to my stupid tweet".

Barr added that she will address the controversy Friday on Joe Rogan's podcast. She later deleted the tweet and tweeted an apology to Jarrett and "all Americans".

ABC immediately canceled the reboot of her show, explaining that "Roseanne's Twitter statement is abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values".

'I apologise. I am now leaving Twitter'.

I give ABC credit for cancelling "Roseanne" - but this wasn't the first time, so why was she given this opportunity in the first place? "We are all greatly distressed by the disgraceful and unacceptable tweet from Roseanne Barr this morning", the agency wrote in an internal memo. "Forgive me - my joke was in bad taste". Since then, Barr has tweeted many apologies, but she has also started to fight back.

Meanwhile, co-star and executive producer Sara Gilbert, stated: "Roseanne's recent comments about Valerie Jarrett, and so much more, are abhorrent and do not reflect the beliefs of our cast and crew or anyone associated with our show". "I am sure they are going to lose some revenue potential from next season, but the fallout from the comment made this an easy decision, especially when you consider the Disney brand".

Her tweet yesterday about former Obama aide Valerie Jarrett was a lapse too revolting to be ignored.

"Roseanne's Twitter statement is abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values, and we have chose to cancel her show", Channing Dungey, president of ABC Entertainment, said in a statement. I imagine George Soros's nephews are lovely people. The initial tweet outraged fans and as well as her own castmates.

"I'm sorry 4 my tweet, AND I will also defend myself as well as talk to my followers.so, go away if u don't like it".

In the early hours of Wednesday morning, she responded to those who had been jumping to her defence, urging them: "Guys I did something unforgiveable so do not defend me".
