Trump weighs in on cancellation of ‘Roseanne’

Trump weighs in on cancellation of ‘Roseanne’

Roseanne hit back at her co-star Sian Gibson yesterday, after she directly addressed the racist comment.

Mr. Trump did not criticize Barr for her tweet but instead said, "Bob Iger of ABC called Valerie Jarrett to let her know that "ABC does not tolerate comments like those" made by Roseanne Barr".

Bob Iger, who runs Disney, reportedly called former Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett this week to apologize for a tweet sent out by former ABC star Roseanne Barr. Barr tweeted: "muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby (equals) vj".

Barr often spouts right-wing conspiracy theories on her Twitter account, and has found herself in social media hot water countless times before. Ross was suspended and the network issued a clarification on ABC World News Tonight. Retweeting memes and fans defending her hours after news broke that her ABC show had been cancelled, Barr blamed the mishap on the fact that she'd consumed some Ambien. "I made a mistake I wish I hadn't but...don't defend it please. ty".

"It's terrific, I tell you, I love what he did", Trump then tells Moore of his film.

Despite the significant viewership ratings Barr was bringing in, ABC chose to terminate her show's revival in light of the ludicrous, racist statements she made yesterday on Twitter. Trump previously sought an apology from the Disney-owned sports network ESPN, where anchor Jemele Hill labeled the president a "white supremacist" on Twitter. One stupid joke in a lifetime of fighting for civil rights for all minorities, against networks, studios, at the expense of my nervous system/family/wealth will NEVER be taken from me, ' she said in one post.

Trump on Wednesday night tweeted that Iger never apologized to him for "the frightful statements made and said about me on ABC".

Michael Moore has revealed that he's been working on a "secret project" involving Donald Trump and Roseanne Barr.

And if you ask Tom Arnold, Barr's ex-husband and former Roseanne co-star and writer (of the original series), the comedian knew exactly what she was doing and wanted the show to get cancelled.

"Roseanne" earned an estimated $45 million in advertising revenue for ABC through its nine episodes that started airing in March, according to Kantar Media.

Twitter users immediately pounced on Barr's claim that her sleeping pill led her to write the offensive tweet. Yes, they knew the show would be a ratings blockbuster as Barr was always a lighting rod for controversy, but did they think beyond that?
