McCain, of course, recently called out the White House for Kelly Sadler's nasty comment about her father and how no disciplinary action was taken.

Jarrett's name came up in response to Twitter commentary that raised her name in relation to an Obama conspiracy theory.

"I apologize to Valerie Jarrett and to all Americans. It just shocked me a bit", she wrote.

"I created the platform for that inclusivity and you know it. ME". She added that she forgives Gilbert, saying, "It just shocked me a bit, but I indeed [f*****] up".

The tweets were subsequently deleted, and Barr disputed the notion she was blaming the drug for her racist and anti-Semitic tweets. She even revealed whether or not she would want another network to pick up the series.

"Tone starts at the top, and we like to look up to our president and feel as though he reflects the values of our country", Jarrett said in a televised town hall discussion titled "Everyday Racism" hosted by MSNBC.

Oh yeah, now Barr says she is being bullied.

"I'm anxious about all the people out there who don't have a circle of friends and followers who came to their defense", Jarrett said at the town hall.

The original "Roseanne" ran from 1988 to 1997, featuring a blue-collar family, the Conners, with overweight parents struggling to get by. "Roseanne" averaged 23.2 million viewers, according to Nielsen, making it the most popular show of the year so far.

Dealing with hot-button issues such as health care, social security and opioid addiction, the reboot received backlash for some of its pointed jokes, including jabs at minority-led series Black-ish and Fresh Off the Boat. She wrote of Sykes, "her tweet made ABC very nervous and they cancelled the show".

Upon its return to ABC, Roseanne proved to be a surprise hit.

Specifically, Roseanne responded to Michael Fishman, who played D.J. Conner on the show.

Roseanne Barr returned to Twitter on Tuesday night after proclaiming earlier in the day that she would be quitting the social media site due to an insensitive comment she made.

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".
