With swift cancellation of 'Roseanne,' ABC draws line in sand

Roseanne Barr Apologizes To 'Roseanne' Cast And Crew, Blames Ambien

Trump's former campaign manager Michael Caputo is courting Roseanne Barr and her cancelled ABC Roseanne sitcom to bring to his streaming service Bond, reports the New York Daily News.

She said of the Jarrett tweet, "It was 2 in the morning and I was ambien tweeting". Roneanne said a racist thing, the show is over, and it now feels like a better move for everyone to move on.

While Barr has apologised for her tweet about Jarrett, she has also repeatedly defended it - calling her words "insensitive, not racist".

WTF? What did she expect them to say?

"I am truly sorry for making a bad joke about her politics and her looks", Barr tweeted.

The executive producer of "Roseanne", which came back this spring after being gone for two decades and instantly became television's second most popular comedy, said he supported ABC's decision.

To refresh: Barr compared former Obama senior advisor Jarrett to an ape on Tuesday and suggested she was a member of the Muslim Brotherhood.

While Roseanne as we know it is officially dead and gone, it does seem as though ABC may consider finding another way in which for the series to move forward.

While her first encounter with John Goodman was a bit awkward, it wasn't long ago that Emma Kenney told Entertainment Tonight that her TV grandmother Roseanne Barr was "the coolest".

It was something rare in today's U.S. entertainment: a depiction of an extended working class family, including supporters of President Trump.

Jarrett, who said she was "fine" after the slur, urged in an MSNBC special Tuesday about racism that the incident become a teaching moment.

Barr added that she would be on Joe Rogan's podcast, "The Joe Rogan Experience", on Friday.

On Barr having a history of this kind of attitude: "This monkey thing is something she's tweeted before about black people".

"I got to believe that none of us like or appreciate what Roseanne Barr did, it's a terrible mistake, and I think, you know, people view it, this whole thing about gorillas, it is a trope, it's a racist trope, and I've seen people taken down by this in the past", Caputo said.

In a reply to one of her fans, she said "I honestly thought she was Jewish and Persian-ignorant of me for sure, but.i did".

Goodman said if that's the case, "then you've heard more than I have".
