Roseanne wants to personally call people she's offended to apologize

- What will ABC schedule Tuesdays at 8 p.m. this fall in place of "Roseanne?".

Barr has continued to tweet since her show's cancellation, apologizing for her racist remark, defending some of her co-stars, including John Goodman and Laurie Metcalf, and condemning other actors on the show. According to Entertainment Tonight, Kenney had planned to quit Roseanne as soon as she heard about Barr's racist tweet about former Obama aide Valerie Jarrett, but ABC beat her to it by canceling the show. One message she re-tweeted on Wednesday falsely accused the Hungary-born Jewish billionaire of collaborating with the Nazis.

She also blamed Ambien for her outburst, saying she posted the tweet at 2 a.m. while on the insomnia-treating drug. Sanofi US refuted the comedienne's claim that Ambien caused her to write racist messages.

In another tweet to a fan, Barr revealed she had forgiven Gilbert, 43: "I understand her position and why she said what she said. i forgive her".

After initially posting that she would be quitting Twitter, Barr went on to post a flurry of messages on the site.

Oh, and if you were wondering whether those lovable pranksters at Dictionary.com got involved... of course they did.

"Roseanne Barr's comments were appalling and reminiscent of horrific time in our history when racism was not only acceptable but promoted by Hollywood".
