Barr took to Twitter overnight to apologize again and say that she sent out her racist tweet after taking a sedative. "I am disappointed in her actions to say the least", Sara Gilbert tweeted. "I went too far and do not want it defended-it was egregious Indefensible".
And yesterday, after vowing to quit Twitter, Roseanne returned to the network tweeting a response to users calling her "racist".
The reboot of her hit sitcom Roseanne had been a ratings victor, and Mr Trump had called to congratulate her personally on its first season back.
Amid the furor over her comment Barr told supporters on Twitter: "I'm not a racist, just and idiot". Over the years, Barr often used her platform to champion for women's rights, and she advocated for laws that would diminish racial profiling when she was vying for a spot on the presidential ballot in 2015. The president is often the topic of pointed comments and satire on the ABC shows "The View" and "Jimmy Kimmel Live!"
ABC have since released a statement over their decision to cancel the show, with Channing Dungey, the network's president of entertainment, saying: "Roseanne's Twitter statement is abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values and we have chose to cancel her show". Sanofi, the company that makes Ambien, issued a statement that said: "While all pharmaceutical treatments have side effects, racism is not a known side effect of any Sanofi medication".
Gee, he never called President Donald J. Trump to apologize for the terrible statements made and said about me on ABC. Barr also re-tweeted several people defending her.
Not enough, however, has been said about the many men and women who poured their hearts and lives into the show and were just getting started on next season.
"You throw me under the bus. And then if her insane tweets came out, she could point to that and say, "But I have taken a step back". "I'm anxious about the people out there who don't have a circle of friends and followers who come right to their defense". "Today my words caused hundreds of hardworking people to lose their jobs", she said. One executive producer on the show said they felt "gut-punched" when they learned the news.
