  • Roseanne Barr Apologizes To 'Roseanne' Cast And Crew, Blames Ambien

Barr apologized before ABC's statement on Tuesday, saying that her statement suggesting that former Barack Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett is a product of the Muslim Brotherhood and the "Planet of the Apes" was a "joke" that was "in bad taste".

An old picture of Roseanne Barr dressed as Adolf Hitler, wearing a swastika and pulling burnt cookies from an oven, splashed on the front of the New York Daily News Wednesday like a neon sign asking ABC executives: What were you thinking?

But did ABC do "the wrong thing" by rebooting "Roseanne" to begin with?

In the new footage, Weinman takes an apparently negative Breathalyzer test and declines to give her last name and phone number, asking the police to wait for her aunt, who is over 21, to arrive and claim responsibility for the alcohol present. Responding to Fishman's statement on Wednesday, Barr tweeted, "I created the platform for that inclusivity and you know it. ME".

Although President Trump didn't explicitly come to Barr's defense, he did imply ABC was guilty of hypocrisy.

Soon after that, Barr's talent agency dropped her from its client list and Viacom announced rerun episodes of "Roseanne" will no longer be shown on that family of networks. And what if you support Barr, and her right to free speech; where can your voices and opinions be heard?


"I just wish ABC had not thrown two of the greatest actors in the world out with me-Laurie and John".

When the assistant returned after more than four hours, he was "really, really upset because she'd given him an apron, made him go outside in the heat and make burgers for him and some others".

"I feel devastated, not for the end of the Roseanne show, but for all those who poured their hearts and souls into our jobs, and the audience that welcomed us into their homes".

"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, '" he said of the situation.

"This is a person who, left to her own devices, is not totally in control", Harbert said.

Appearing at a town hall about race on Tuesday night, Jarrett said: "I'm fine". She has the temperament, and the tendency to go to dark places, that fuels many artists, he said. They do it because we have a white trash racist president. "I don't know anything about it", Goodman said when asked what his response was to the fallout. "I suspected there might not be any coming back from it", Caplan said, adding that the racist tweet stopped everyone in their tracks and no one could work.
