WH: No one is defending Roseanne, Trump owed an apology

Lynette PayneMay 31, 2018

In other tweets, Barr said that she was exhausted of "being attacked and belittled more than other comedians who have said worse" and asked for people not to boycott ABC, saying that the network has the right to "do what they wish". The initial tweet outraged fans and as well as her own castmates.

Kimmel's Twitter response to the Barr firing comes just after the host jokingly pitched a "Roseanne" spin-off featuring just John Goodman on his Tuesday night show.

In a tweet, Trump noted that Robert Iger, who is chief executive of ABC's parent Walt Disney Co., called Valerie Jarrett to say the network wouldn't tolerate Roseanne Barr's racist tweet about the former Obama adviser.

"She's known Trump for 30 years like I have", he said.

When Twitter users accused Barr of being racist, she responded, "Muslims r NOT a race" and "ISLAM is not a RACE, lefties". "The words of one person do not exemplify the thinking of all involved".

Earlier that day, she also targeted Chelsea Clinton, tweeting, "Chelsea Soros Clinton", suggesting in another tweet that the former first daughter is in cahoots with liberal businessman George Soros because she married his nephew.

"He wanted me to know before he made it public that he was canceling the show", she said, adding that Iger told her there would be zero tolerance for those types of comments. At the same time I don't like to see the Joy people are having kicking her. I hear you. What had to happen happened. "She's not going to go on TV and say these things". And then some sarcasm (and a third-person reference): "Gee, he never called President Donald J. Trump to apologize for the awful statements made and said about me on ABC".

She brought up several examples of what she called a media slant against Trump.

It tweeted that maybe the audience would prefer one of its own shows instead.

Barr has issued an apology to Jarrett via Twitter. One stupid joke in a lifetime of fighting for civil rights for all minorities, against networks, studios, at the expense of my nervous system/family/wealth will NEVER be taken from me, ' she said in one post. Barr went on to apologize for the joke, admitting she "made a mistake".

The ABC network pulled the plug on the revived show yesterday, just hours after Barr's tweet.

Indeed, Barr made new headlines in 2016 when she revealed her support for Trump, later insisting that she was still "a radical" and had voted for Trump to "shake up the status quo & the staid establishment".

"I have an idea that I think makes this work for everyone", he said.
