"Roseanne's recent comments about Valerie Jarrett, and so much more, are abhorrent and do not reflect the beliefs of our cast and crew or anyone associated with our show", she tweeted.

President Donald Trump again asked Bob Iger, the CEO of Disney, which owns ABC, to apologize to him for errors the news network's reporting on his presidency after it had canceled a show and apologized to viewers.

In an interview with both CNN and The Hollywood Reporter, Tom Arnold gave his thoughts on the actions of his ex-wife Roseanne Barr and the cancellation of her show Roseanne due to a racist tweet she sent out. She has since said that she took sleeping tablets before sending the tweet and that they were the reason for her weird behaviour.

Barr originally said her tweet about Jarrett was "indefensible" and begged for forgiveness, reports CBS News correspondent Vladimir Duthiers.

By contrast, Michael Fishman - who played the part of D.J. Conner on "Roseanne" - blasted her co-star's comments, describing them as "intolerable".

"Let me be clear". Her show has become a weekly source of controversy in the current American zeitgeist and it looks like ABC had just had enough. I'd worked doing publicity for them for free for weeks, traveling, thru bronchitis.

The fallout of Roseanne Barr getting her revived sitcom Roseanne cancelled after a series of racist tweets has been divisive. "I begged4 ppls jobs", she wrote.

Roseanne continued tweeting: "He said: what were you thinking when you did this?"

"I generally believe he thinks black people are unsafe and Mexicans are rapists", Arnold said.

When the scandal first broke, the White House had deflected questions with Sanders saying: "We have a lot bigger things going on in the country right now". She previously apologized to the "wonderful writers (all liberal) and talented actors who lost their jobs on my show due to my stupid tweet" and expressed her regret over John Goodman and Laurie Metcalf losing their jobs too.

"Roseanne" was rebooted in March after a 21-year hiatus with Barr's character recast as a Trump supporter in a rare depiction of working class life on the USA small screen.
