Response was immediate and damning, with Barr criticized for making a racist comparison. The initial tweet outraged fans and as well as her own castmates.

As part of the backlash for Barr's racist tweet, ABC canceled the Roseanne reboot's second season, and suspended its Emmys For Your Consideration campaign. "I wish there was some creative way that she could have gone away - the character, to rehab - and they have such strong actors and they could have gone on and tell the important stories of middle America that need to be told, because nobody else is telling" them. Wednesday morning Barr seemed to defend Gilbert, saying she was "distancing herself" from Barr because "she has to", adding that she forgives Gilbert.

Was it money? A job?

Jarrett said Disney Chief Executive Bob Iger called her before ABC announced the show's cancellation.

Some of these men have spoken of the importance of being a part of the conversation with those in power who you may not agree with, in the hopes of helping shape and execute something properly, or in an attempt to help control and guide the unpredictable and unstable person in charge.

For Donald Trump, this story is obviously about him.

When quizzed about the messages on Twitter, he said: "I don't know anything about it". Other members of the "Roseanne" cast haven't been as circumspect as Goodman.

Both Trump and Barr have been longtime supporters of each other.

Trump hoping to effectively block German auto imports to US?
Although he is for free trade, but not at any price: "I love free trade, but it must be a smart trade, so I call him fair". The president has shown he's not afraid to get into trade wars with even America's closest allies.


"It has been 24 years, so I don't know that I know who Roseanne is", he says. "If it hadn't happened yesterday, this season would have been so terrible for everyone every day because she would have felt like she was [being] taken advantage [of], just like when I left the show".

'It was terrific, I tell ya. Some of the retweets promoted conspiracy theories and anti-ABC grievances. When the Twitter user pointed to her previous tweets-and the headlines they inspired-she wrote, "i blamed myself. stop lying". The closest analogy is CBS pulling the plug on the Smothers Brothers variety show due to their anti-war views in the late 1960s and the same network not renewing "Lou Grant" at its peak, which star Ed Asner always contended was due to his outspoken political beliefs.

Comedian and Actor, Trevon Free, lays out the argument in his tweet.

Barr initially tried to backtrack from the comments saying they were a joke, but appears to have changed her tone.

In a flurry of 2013 social media posts, Barr reportedly tweeted "Newsflash: Yes I do have mental health issues" and claimed not to have the "emotional stability" to deal with an unnamed showrunner on one of her productions, according to TV Guide.

"I condemn these statements vehemently", 36-year-old Fishman, who played son D.J., tweeted.

She is now going out of her way to attack the same progressives who put their names and reputations on the line to help make her show a hit.
