Roseanne has also claimed that being called a racist is much more hurtful than having her show cancelled by ABC.

Roseanne Barr has blamed sleeping pills for a tweet that led to the cancellation of her hit show, but the drug company says "racism is not a known side effect". "I made a mistake I wish I hadn't but.don't defend it please. ty".

Barr said it was the result of "ambien tweeting", a reference to the common sleep aid medication.

Soon after that, Barr's talent agency dropped her from its client list and Viacom announced rerun episodes of "Roseanne" will no longer be shown on that family of networks.

The actress did apologize via her Twitter account for the original tweet that set all of these events in motion yesterday and deleted the racist tweet.

"We have a lot bigger things going on in the country right now, certainly, that the president is spending his time on", said White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders.

The problematic content in question was a tweet she posted about Valerie Jarrett, a Senior Advisor to former US president Barack Obama.

Trump wrote that Iger never called him to apologize for "the terrible statements" that have been said about him on ABC.

He said he doesn't know anything about Barr's tweets, including one that featured a racial slur against Valerie Jarrett, a former aide to President Obama.

President Donald Trump has tweeted his thoughts after the Roseanne reboot was cancelled by ABC.

Hours after ABC axed her show for her offensive tweet about former Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett - and quickly breaking a promise to stay off Twitter - the comedian was back on the social media platform.

"I have to say this about the president we have, and his gaslighting and lying", Arnold continued. "And I am going to tell you the truth, she wanted it to happen". "I went 2 far".

Goodman's voluntary ignorance also extends to chatter of him starring in a spinoff series without Roseanne Barr's involvement. Unless, of course, you're a person who doesn't actually see racist comments as being any worse than late-night jokes. "Look at her ratings", he said at a speech in Richfield, Ohio.
