"I'm so sick over this - they will never have better character actors on their network", she said when discussing John and Laurie. The only one left said she was signing off Twitter for a while and she was offering "everyone involved one more apology and prayers".

"Bob Iger of ABC called Valerie Jarrett to let her know that "ABC does not tolerate comments like those" made by Roseanne Barr", Mr Trump tweeted on Wednesday, referring to the former White House senior adviser.

Speaking on an MSNBC town hall program that aired late Tuesday, Jarrett said that she was "fine" and that she was more "worried about all the people out there who don't have a circle of friends and followers who come right to their defense". "You can see him perpetuating mental health issues for the entire country", Arnold said.

She also retweeted several messages complaining that ABC's decision was political and wondering why they hadn't axed performers who had said terrible things about Donald Trump.

The whole debacle arose on Monday when Barr proclaimed that, if the Muslim Brotherhood and the "Planet of the Apes" "had a baby", it would be Jarrett.

The day after ABC pulled the plug on her No. 1 show over a racist tweet, Roseanne Barr returned to Twitter with a vengeance.

Barr, a vocal supporter of President Donald Trump who has previously used Twitter to voice hard-right and conspiracy theorist views, has been dropped by her talent agency ICM amid a wave of public outrage over the tweet.

Now, I feel like people should be looking for Roseanne Barr for that money, but I get it. "I wasn't gonna get an Emmy anyway", he said when asked if he thought the Barr controversy would cost him the award.

Barr was sacked after she sent a series of racist tweets Tuesday about Valerie Jarrett, a former aide to President Barack Obama.

Barr originally said she did something "unforgivable", "egregious" and "indefensible", before suggesting the tweets were a result of taking sleeping pills.

"Michelle Obama must have stuffed that Ambien down her throat and handed her the phone too..." "I made a mistake I wish I hadn't but... don't defend it please".

President Donald Trump escalated a grudge against ABC today in the wake of the cancellation of "Roseanne," tweeting at the chief executive of ABC's parent company.

Roseanne originally ran for nine seasons from 1988 to 1997, and was greenlit in 2017 for a revived 10 season with the original cast.
