Roseanne Barr hits back at former co-star’s criticism of ‘abhorrent’ tweet

Trump tweeted that the CEO of ABC's parent company called Valerie Jarrett to say the network wouldn't tolerate Barr's tweet about her. Trump wrote that CEO Bob Iger never call him to apologize for "the disgusting statements" that have been said about him on ABC". And then they both agreed that they didn't want Mike Pence to become president.

Many Barr supporters came out in support of the series, calling the network's action hypocritical after allowing The View talk show host Joy Behar, as well as other hosts, to stay on the air after making negative statements about President Donald Trump. In a response to a comment about Jarrett, Barr had compared the aide to "Planet of the Apes" and the Muslim Brotherhood.

She continued: "He said: what were you thinking when you did this?"

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders told reporters Wednesday that "no one is defending" Barr's remarks and called them "inappropriate", but she also excoriated the media for what she said was unfair treatment of the Trump administration.

He added: "ABC lost maybe $1 billion from this; this show was grinding out money hand over fist and they lost it all because somebody didn't say, 'Get that phone out of her hand'".

While Roseanne as we know it is officially dead and gone, it does seem as though ABC may consider finding another way in which for the series to move forward.

The maker of the sleeping drug Ambien has responded to Roseanne Barr's excuse for her controversial tweets. I begged them not to cancel the show. She later sent dozens of tweets in which she apologized and offered up a number of reasons for her offensive comment.

The 18-year-old actress, who played Harris Conner-Healy on the show, revealed that she had an unusual first meeting with her TV grandfather, John Goodman.

- Will President Trump comment at all?

"You guys make me feel like fighting back", she tweeted the day after her show was canceled.

It was Barr's earlier tweet about Jarrett that caused outrage and ultimately led to the show's cancellation. "And he said to me, oh my gosh, you married up in the world".

"Roseanne" earned an estimated $45 million in advertising revenue for ABC through its nine episodes that started airing in March, according to Kantar Media.
