Actress blames her racist tweets on sleeping pill

Actress blames her racist tweets on sleeping pill

"It was a stone cold racist comment", Schmidt said of Barr's tweet.

Barr claimed that her tweet about former Obama administration official Valerie Jarrett was not racist, and that she was sacked because of fears over a potential boycott of the show's advertisers. She then plugged her next engagement, which is appearing on "The Joe Rogan Experience" podcast on Friday. Now, ABC has confirmed it's canceling the Roseanne show.

"We know what Donald Trump thinks". ABC, now facing a gaping hole in its fall schedule, stands to lose millions in advertising dollars and hundreds of jobs. "I also sincerely apologise to the audience that has embraced my work for decades". "I apologize from the bottom of my heart and hope you can find it in your hearts to forgive me". I just wish that line, in America in 2018, wasn't quite so far away from a place where things are decent and sane. "I apologize. I am now leaving Twitter", she said.

Barr wasn't the only Roseanne actor pulling in $250,000 an episode during the successful revival - Variety reported that John Goodman, who plays Dan Conner, also made $250,000 an episode. "I honestly thought she was Jewish and Persian-ignorant of me for sure, but.I did". She criticized Democratic financier George Soros and tweeted that Chelsea Clinton was "Chelsea Soros Clinton", implying she was married to a nephew of Soros. I'm glad ABC decided that was too much, even though the network previously seemed fine holding her up as a star, contributing to the normalization of her xenophobia and outright craziness.

In an apparent contradiction to her apologies, most of the other sentiments she shared on her Twitter account were angry remarks that her supporters directed at ABC Entertainment.

She also fired back at Michael Fishman and Sara Gilbert's statements. "In terms of looking at this as maybe being a role model, I've always been very focused on being a role model for my daughter. You throw me under the bus. nice!" Hours after Roseanne was canceled following her racially insensitive tweet, the 65-year-old told her fans not to defend her and that her actions were "unforgivable".

"I don't understand it to be anything other than free speech", said Fox host Harris Faulkner. "She's distancing herself from me and my tweet-she has to".

Before the announcement of the cancellation, Roseanne consulting producer and famed writer and comedian Wanda Sykes vowed not to return to the show. Barr's tweet followed a Twitter conversation referring to a Wikileaks allegation that the Central Intelligence Agency spied on French presidential candidates during the Obama administration.

ABC Entertainment's president said the network has chose to cancel the reboot of her show.
