"I'm so sick over this-they will never have better character actors on their network". Taking to Twitter, Trump wanted to know why the United States network said sorry to Jarrett, but not to him for statements that were made on the network about him.

The White House said Trump, who had celebrated the success of Roseanne Barr's show earlier in the year, was not defending her racist tweet about a former Obama adviser, but wanted to point out media bias against him.

The fallout started after the comedian went off on a freakish Twitter rant attacking people including Barack Obama's former senior adviser Valerie Jarrett, who is African-American.

All this to say, ABC owes people money.

Roseanne continued tweeting: "He said: what were you thinking when you did this?"

ABC's decision to scrap Barr's show renewed criticism regarding MSNBC anchor Joy Reid, who is accused of authoring recently unearthed blog posts that critics have described as "homophobic".

If you haven't heard about Roseanne Barr's racist tweets and ABC cancelling her show despite it being their highest-rated comedy of the year, you've got some serious catching up to do.

On Wednesday, May 30, 2018, Entertainment Tonight reported that the actor had finally spoken up about Roseanne Barr's recent controversial tweets and their show's subsequent cancellation. Or every black parent I know who has a boy who has to sit down and have a conversation, "the talk" as we call it.

Barr was responding to a comment about Valerie Jarrett, a top former aide to President Obama.

"I wasn't gonna get an Emmy anyway", he said.

Barr was sacked after she sent a series of racist tweets Tuesday about Valerie Jarrett, a former aide to President Barack Obama. "She is a f-cking asshole, but so am I. No one ever stood up to her like I did".

Comedian and late show host Jimmy Kimmel spoke out in Roseanne's defence, telling people to back off and have some compassion. Robert Iger, chairman of ABC owner Disney, said in a tweet, "There was only one thing to do here, and that was the right thing".

Reruns on Hulu, Paramount Network, TV Land and CMT have also been pulled from the air and Barr was dropped from her talent agency ICM.

She said the long-time, well respected political figure was what you would get if Muslim Brotherhood and Planet of the Apes "had a baby".

"They muster up their folk to make thousands of calls to take ppl off the airwaves", Barr claimed.

Roseanne originally ran for nine seasons from 1988 to 1997, and was greenlit in 2017 for a revived 10 season with the original cast.
