  • Roseanne Barr's TV show cancelled after Twitter race row

Only hours after declaring she was quitting Twitter, Roseanne Barr is back.

As for Barr's comments, she was sacked from her hit ABC series Roseanne today after tweeting an anti-Semitic conspiracy and saying, "muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby=vj" - which a refernce to the former Obama aide Valerie Jarrett, who is a person of color.

The star is due to appear on comedian Joe Rogan's podcast on Friday.

She has also faced criticism recently for tweeting conspiracy theories.

But this isn't the first time Barr has been accused of making racist remarks from her social media account. "I mean, we don't have much on this network". The consulting producer on Roseanne tweeted that she would not be returning to the show. "We are all greatly distressed by the disgraceful and unacceptable tweet from Roseanne Barr this morning", the agency wrote in an internal memo.

"I apologize from the bottom of my heart and hope you can find it in your hearts to forgive me".

Long before this controversy, many questioned the wisdom of airing a pro-Trump Roseanne reboot, especially during a time of heightened tensions in the U.S. Ava DuVernay - the Oscar-winning director of A Wrinkle in Time and Selma - made that sentiment clear in her tweet following the cancellation. Barr claimed late Tuesday night that she posted that apology after the show was canceled, in response to some, like MSNBC's Lawrence O'Donnell, who claimed it was a network forced apology.

ABC's Roseanne stars Roseanne Barr and John Goodman.

"I'm fine", she said.

Barr later deleted the tweet and said it was a joke, adding "I apologize to Valerie Jarrett and to all Americans". Barr later wrote that "i blamed myself. not ambien". "I am sure they are going to lose some revenue potential from next season, but the fallout from the comment made this an easy decision, especially when you consider the Disney brand". Today my words caused hundreds of people to lose their jobs. I am sorry for making a thoughtless joke that does not reflect my values - I love all people and am very sorry. I feel so empowered by @iamwandasykes, Channing Dungey and anyone at ABC standing up for morals and abuse of power. The initial tweet outraged fans and as well as her own castmates.
