Trump breaks silence on Roseanne race row, attacks ABC

Other members of Goodman's TV family have condemned Barr's comment, including Sara Gilbert, who said "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".

A second season of Roseanne Barr's revived sitcom was canned in the wake of a tweet she made about former President Obama's senior advisor Valerie Jarrett.

President Donald Trump spoke during a bill-signing ceremony for the "Right to Try" act in the South Court Auditorium on the White House campus, Wednesday, in Washington.

Earlier this week, Sherwood sent out an email to ABC staff sympathizing with those who "poured their hearts and lives into the show" and would now be out of work. The infamous tweet Roseanne wrote called a black former Obama aide was the "muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby", so that first point isn't in contention.

But she has continued to retweet her supporters who have defended her comments.

She also urged her critics to be fair, adding: "Please don't compare me2 other people who have said frightful things". Her show has become a weekly source of controversy in the current American zeitgeist and it looks like ABC had just had enough. I'd worked doing publicity4 them 4free for weeks, traveling, thru bronchitis. "You and ABC have offended millions of people, and they demand a response", Trump tweeted. The only one left said she was signing off Twitter for a while and she was offering "everyone involved one more apology and prayers".

"I'm not a racist, I never was & I never will be", she also wrote.

In March 2017, she tweeted: "The lefty Irish R up to their armpits in hosting anti semitic festivals abt killing all jews in Israel, but h8 me saying give Ireland away2". "She is a f-king asshole, but so am I. No one ever stood up to her like I did". And I am going to tell you the truth, she wanted it to happen, if you saw how her tweets escalated this weekend. "He believes that. As he perpetuates that fear to America, watch out Mueller is lying, he is after me".

Barr sounds like she would support such a development.
