Trump backs Roseanne in Twitter race row

Roseanne Barr

At the White House daily press briefing, the president's spokeswoman, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, expanded on Mr Trump's tweet.

Barr also criticized her co-stars overnight, including Michael Fishman, who played her youngest child, D.J., on her hit show "Roseanne" and its revival, for speaking out against her. "But I think it's important to keep in mind that the show was being written by many other people who are amusing and not making racist tweets". "While all pharmaceutical treatments have side effects, racism is not a known side effect of any Sanofi medication".

In one tweet she calls her own words indefensible and blames Ambien for the initial tweet. In the aftermath of Tuesday's outcry over Barr's tweet, Arnold says he reached out to their mutual friend, Rosie O'Donnell, and asked that she give some public support to Barr via Twitter.

"Bob Iger of ABC called Valerie Jarrett to let her know that "ABC does not tolerate comments like those" made by Roseanne Barr", he wrote. "Roseanne's Twitter statement is abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values, and we have chose to cancel her show", ABC president Channing Dungey said in a statement. "Maybe I just didn't get the call?'"

U.S. president Donald Trump has weighed in on the Roseanne Barr debate. She called it "abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values".

The original Roseanne ran from 1988 to 1997, featuring a blue-collar family, the Conners, with overweight parents struggling to get by. "Our government is only going to be as good as we make it be". Through her selection of retweets, Barr implied that she was sacked over her support for President Trump.

ABC made a decision to cancel "Rosanne" on Tuesday and then suspended its "For Your Consideration" Emmy campaign the following day. "It represented the work of hundreds of talented people".

"I think it was a reasonable bet to take, and it worked until it didn't", Ancier said. "They love calling black people monkeys". But much of its progress would have been threatened if it looked the other way at Barr's tweet.

She had said on Tuesday that she was leaving Twitter, but she just can't seem to log off. It's a meme that she and thousands of her alt-right fans do. Clinton herself corrected Barr online.

"While we believe viewers have always distinguished the personal behavior of the actress Roseanne Barr from the television character Roseanne Connor, we are disgusted by Barr's comments this week".

The tweet came after a profuse series of apologies from Barr for the tweet early Monday which referred to the former adviser to President Barack Obama Valerie Jarrett as a "child" of the "Muslim Brotherhood" and "Planet of the Apes".
