Roseanne Barr unleashes new tweetstorm hours after USA network axes show

Roseanne Barr apologizes for Twitter post blasted as 'racist'

Later she saw the error of her ways, tweeting: "I apologize to Valerie Jarrett and to all Americans".

Long before this controversy, many questioned the wisdom of airing a pro-Trump Roseanne reboot, especially during a time of heightened tensions in the U.S. Ava DuVernay - the Oscar-winning director of A Wrinkle in Time and Selma - made that sentiment clear in her tweet following the cancellation. Barr also stated that she'll be on Joe Rogan's podcast on Friday.

"I deeply regret my comments from late last night on Twitter".

"We support ABC's decision and are removing the show from Hulu", a company spokesperson said.

"I'm fine. I'm anxious about the people out there who don't have a circle of friends and followers who come right to their defense". Today my words caused hundreds of people to lose their jobs.

Civic leader Valerie Jarrett attends the United State of Women Summit on May 5, 2018, in Los Angeles, California. "[Guys] I did something unforgiveable so do not defend me".

"Oh man this is just the best, @therealroseanne is now defending her tweets by saying Ambien made her racist?". "It was widely known and meticulously documented that she was a flagrant bigot before @ABC & @Disney rolled out the red carpet for her anyway", he tweeted. She later indicated, in multiple replies, that she didn't know Jarrett is black. "I think the bigger question is why was she given this opportunity to have this show again in the first place when her reputation precedes her?"

She's a ideal avatar for this moment in our history: white, loud, mean (she also took time Tuesday morning to tie Chelsea Clinton to some weird 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. In another tweet: "As I called my manager to quit working on Roseanne, I was told it was cancelled. I hope you can accept this honest apology!" With Gilbert, she initially wrote, "Wow! unreal".

What did her bosses and colleagues say? "She's distancing herself from me and my tweet-she has to".

Earlier on Tuesday, Roseanne producer and comedian Wanda Sykes announced she "would not be returning" to the show either.

"Roseanne" was the highest-rated series on broadcast television during its nine-episode revival run, averaging more than 10 million viewers per episode. "Muslims r NOT a race", Barr replied.

The repercussions are coming quickly for Roseanne Barr after she tweeted on Monday that Barack Obama's former aide Valerie Jarrett was the product of when "muslim brotherhood and planet of the apes had a baby". Since then, Barr has tweeted many apologies, but she has also started to fight back. "I am sorry for making a thoughtless jokes that does not reflect my values - I love all people and am very sorry", she wrote. "Forgive me- my joke was in bad taste".
