Roseanne Barr forgives TV kids for turning on her

Roseanne Barr forgives TV kids for turning on her

Trump tweeted that the CEO of ABC's parent company called Valerie Jarrett to say the network wouldn't tolerate Barr's tweet about her. Trump wrote that CEO Bob Iger never call him to apologize for "the disgusting statements" that have been said about him on ABC". The move followed yet another glaringly racist tweet from star Roseanne Barr, this time comparing former Barack Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett to an ape.

In her most recent post, Barr again announced her intentions to take a break from Twitter. "I am disappointed in her actions to say the least", she wrote on Twitter.

Her latest comments are about nine-year-old Rey, who plays Roseanne's adorable grand-daughter on the show.

While this isn't plausible in the slightest, Barr is hoping to retaliate against ABC for cancelling her sitcom.

The ABC network pulled the plug on the revived show yesterday, just hours after Barr's tweet.

On the other hand, this tweet came shortly after Barr retweeted a celebration of President Donald Trump's announcement he was pardoning Dinesh D'Souza because he was "treated very unfairly by our government!"

"ABC knew this about her going in", Steve Schmidt, a former chief strategist for Senator John McCain's presidential campaign, said of Barr on "Morning Joe" Wednesday. The president called Barr to congratulate her on the reboot's massive premiere ratings in March. "And he said to me, oh my gosh, you married up in the world". Jarrett also said that Iger had called her before the announcement that "Roseanne" was canceled, and that Iger "apologized". "Don't feel sorry for me, guys!-I just want to apologize to the hundreds of people, and wonderful writers (all liberal) and talented actors who lost their jobs on my show due to my stupid tweet".

"It's a meme that she and thousands of her alt-right fans do", Arnold said.

Not long after "Ambien" began trending on Twitter, the sleep aid's creator, Sanofi, fired back, writing, "Racism is not a known side effect of any Sanofi medication". Both Barr and her TV character, Roseanne Conner, voiced support for Trump. "I end by offering everyone involved one more apology and prayers for healing of our divided nation", she said Thursday.
