"Sometimes people could just walk by her and she'd yell: 'What are you doing in here?' She was paranoid that the executive producers were spying on her", the source said. The veteran actor and Roseanne Barr's TV husband broke his silence on Barr's racist Twitter fiasco, gingerly broaching the subject that led to his hit ABC TV show getting canceled on Tuesday.

"I begged Ben Sherwood at ABC 2 let me apologize & make amends".

'I think I'll b better tomorrow.

The comic, who on Tuesday had vowed to leave Twitter following the backlash - only to return to the social media platform later that evening to blame her tweets on Ambien - also apologized Thursday to her young Roseanne co-star Jayden Rey.

Barr later apologised for what she called a "joke". He suggested that Barr wanted the show to get cancelled.

"I had an assistant who was a young guy and I needed Roseanne to either look at something or sign something and Roseanne had pretty much barricaded her set from executives coming by because she was paranoid".

"I don't know anything about it", he said.

Teens are abandoning Facebook in dramatic numbers, study finds
Others who found social media harmful cited the potential for online bullying , spreading of false information and addiction. In 2015, Instagram was a distant second to Facebook , with 20 percent of teens, and Snapchat came in third with 11 percent.


But Barr's pleas for mercy were rejected by Disney/ABC Television Group President Ben Sherwood who deemed the actor' racist and anti-Semitic posts were beyond redemption, according to the Roseanne star.

"This is just one other example of the fact that this is completely and totally inappropriate and abhorrent behavior and we've seen it time and time again", Kasich continued.

She called her own actions indefensible, saying: "I made a mistake I wish I hadn't but...don't defend it please". "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".

The tweet in question referred to Jarrett as looking like the offspring of the "Muslim Brotherhood & Planet of the Apes".

"Roseanne" was rebooted in March after a 21-year hiatus with Barr's character recast as a Trump supporter in a rare depiction of working class life on the U.S. small screen.

She also urged her critics to be fair, adding: "Please don't compare me2 other people who have said frightful things".
