Roseanne Barr's ex claims she wanted sitcom to be cancelled

'Roseanne' cancelled after Barr makes ’bad joke’ about Obama aide

The president's latest missive came a day after he first criticized Iger - the CEO of Disney, ABC's parent company - for apologizing to Valerie Jarrett over a racist tweet from Roseanne Barr, but not apologizing to him.

After Roseanne Barr tweeted a racist remark toward former President Obama senior advisor Valerie Jarrett, the reboot for Barr's eponymous '90s show was canceled and reruns of the original were pulled from syndication.

However, as Barr's Right-wing supporters began complaining about "the liberal media" taking her down for being an ardent Donald Trump supporter, the comedian ditched her promise to leave Twitter and instead began re-sharing conspiracy theories about her ouster.

"Guys I did something unforgiveable so do not defend me", she wrote in another post.

Barr originally said her tweet about Jarrett was "indefensible" and begged for forgiveness, reports CBS News correspondent Vladimir Duthiers.

This last tweet she noticed seems to suggest that the Obama couple may have something to do with the cancelation of Roseanne because she mocked their Netflix deal before. Sara Gilbert, Michael Fishman, and Emma Kenney apologized to fans for Barr's "reprehensible and intolerable" actions and noted they do not stand behind her.

"He said he had zero tolerance for that sort of racist bigoted comment and he wanted me to know before he made it public that he was canceling the show", she said.

The deplorables are standing strong and banding together behind Roseanne Barr to save her cancelled show.

"Roseanne's Twitter statement is abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values, and we have chose to cancel her show", ABC Entertainment's president, Channing Dungey, said in a statement.

After her firing, Barr said she was leaving Twitter, but has continued making several statements, including one where she blamed the sleep aid Ambien for the tweets that resulted in the show's cancellation. "He said: what were you thinking when you did this? I will examine all of my options carefully and get back to U [sic]".

She then proceeded to retweet dozens of other posts supporting her, which were punctuated with her own original tweets attempting to rectify the situation.

"I think Joe Rogan is right about Ambien", Barr wrote in a since-deleted tweet Tuesday night. "I end by offering everyone involved one more apology and prayers for healing of our divided nation", she said Thursday.
