"I blame myself, not Ambien", she tweeted. Streaming service Hulu and other cable networks have removed Roseanne reruns, and Barr was also dropped by her talent agency. "It just shocked me a bit, but I indeed fucked up". As previously reported by the Inquisitr, there had been rumors that another network may try to snag the show following its cancellation at ABC. Prior to its cancelation yesterday, Roseanne was ABC's best-performing series.

Jarrett, a former senior advisor to President Obama, called the insult a "teaching moment", telling MSNBC during its "Everyday Racism in America" town hall, "I'm fine. Roseanne feels misunderstood and also feels like she did not mean the comments maliciously", a source told us. "Think! I'm just saying, think". "Our government is only going to be as good as we make it". However, many fans took to their own Twitter accounts to advise other networks against it, considering the severity of the controversy.

On the Tuesday Fox News' segment, commentator Jessica Tarlov blasted Barr's derogatory tweets and said they're clearly "racist".

'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.

"Our goal was to promote constructive discussion about the issues that divide us", said Tom Werner. "You throw me under the bus. nice!"

Actor Don Cheadle called out the apparent racism in Barr's tweets. She also pushed the debunked conspiracy theory that businessman and philanthropist George Soros, who is Jewish, conspired with the Nazis. Clinton herself corrected Barr online. Through her selection of retweets, Barr implied that she was sacked over her support for President Trump. The Tweet in question was directed at Valerie Jarrett, who served as an aide to President Barrack Obama. "Today my words caused hundreds of hardworking people to lose their jobs", Barr wrote in a tweet, one in a series of posts Tuesday night.

Three weeks earlier, "Roseanne" was the toast of ABC's annual presentation of its programming plans to advertisers.
