She's a flawless avatar for this moment in our history: white, loud, mean (she also took time Tuesday morning to tie Chelsea Clinton to some freakish George Soros-related conspiracy) and enamored with unhinged narratives based on nothing but lies, like the tale of a global child-trafficking ring linked to Hillary Clinton that is jaw-dropping in its stupidity.
Pre-production for the revival's next season, the series' 11th overall, was already under way when Barr made disparaging remarks about former White House senior adviser Valerie Jarrett, prompting Disney and ABC executives to cancel one of its most popular prime-time programs.
Barr added that she will address the controversy Friday on Joe Rogan's podcast. And to think it all came crashing down in the time it took Barr to press send on a tweet.
'I apologise. I am now leaving Twitter'. Now, ABC has confirmed it's canceling the Roseanne show.
After the announcement, co-star Sara Gilbert wrote, "Roseanne's recent comments about Valerie Jarrett, and so much more, are abhorrent and do not reflect the beliefs of our cast and crew or anyone associated with our show. Forgive me - my joke was in bad taste", she tweeted. Consulting producer Wanda Sykes saidshe was quitting the Roseanne show and Barr said she was quitting Twitter.
"Hey guys, don't defend me, it's sweet of you 2 try, but... losing my show is 0 compared 2 being labelled a racist over one tweet-that I regret even more", Barr wrote.
"As well as the apology, Roseanne also retweeted messages from fans showing their support for the writer, who had used the hashtag: "#StandWithRoseanne".
"I'm sorry 4 my tweet, AND I will also defend myself as well as talk to my followers.so, go away if u don't like it".
"Roseanne's Twitter statement is abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values, and we have chose to cancel her show", president Channing Dungey said. Today my words caused hundreds of people to lose their jobs. I imagine George Soros's nephews are lovely people.
"#Rosanne?is who she tells you she is with every comment and tweet". "You know who I blame for this?" I feel so empowered by @iamwandasykes, Channing Dungey and anyone at ABC standing up for morals and abuse of power.
