ABC cancels 'Roseanne' following Roseanne Barr's racist Twitter rant

"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, '" Arnold told The Hollywood Reporter. "I tweeted a lot to watch out because I could see it coming". Barr was his headache then; he recalled having to go to her home where she was holed up with Tom Arnold for a few weeks and refusing to work in 1994, and coax her out. The parody states that if you're already racist, Ambien could make the problem worse.

She also furiously called out fellow co-star Sara Gilbert, who played another one of her children, for expressing her disappointment.

"Her tweets kept coming Wednesday morning, touching on everything from religion ("I'm a Jew making fun of Hitler, bigot", she defensively responded to a user who shared a photo of her from 2009, when she was slammed for posing as Adolf Hitler for a satirical magazine) to backing off on fully blaming the Ambien that she said she had taken".

ABC canceled its successful reboot of "Roseanne" on Tuesday following the star's racist tweet likening former Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett to a cross between the Muslim Brotherhood and a "Planet of the Apes" actor.

Although Barr said she was leaving Twitter, she returned hours later, posting more than 100 times.

"I'm not a racist, I never was & I never will be", she wrote Wednesday. "You throw me under the bus. nice!"

"Roseanne has said herself that she does not want what she says to overshadow the show in any way, and I do hope that she will continue to be thoughtful about what she shares on social media going forward", ABC Entertainment President Channing Dungey said in the same article.

Later in the interview, he said in regards to the Jarrett tweet, "By the way, this monkey thing is something she's tweeted before about black people".

Rather than distancing himself from Barr's racist remarks, Trump jumped right into the argument about whether she was subjected to a double standard.

The ad that followed showed stock images of doctors and a person stretching in the morning, while the voiceover said, "Side effects of Ambien include nausea, diarrhea and sudden racism". That is why yesterday was so out of character with the last 30 years.

He said he hoped "Roseanne seeks the help she so clearly needs". "It's not a one time joke". He won an Emmy in 2007 for Outstanding Guest Actor in a Drama Series for "Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip".
