Florida Republican leader posts support for Roseanne's tweet

Roseanne‘ cast

They say ABC's issue is that the characters in Roseanne were created by Barr and Matt Williams, and if the sitcom carried on without her she would still rake it in. The only one left said she was signing off Twitter for a while and she was offering "everyone involved one more apology and prayers". "I begged4 ppls jobs".

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

That being said, it sounds like Roseanne Barr is "forgiving" the two for not supporting her through it all and instead, separating themselves from her....or something!

In a now-deleted tweet posted on Thursday, Roseanne Barr expressed remorse over how her actions have hurt Rey.

President Donald Trump on Wednesday broke his silence about the racism row engulfing supporter Roseanne Barr, not to condemn her outburst but to attack ABC television for broadcasting "horrible" statements against himself.

A Republican leader in Florida has said he doesn't understand the anger generated by Roseanne Barr's tweet comparing a former adviser to President Barack Obama to an ape. "I don't know anything about it. Maybe I just didn't get the call?" "She is a f-cking asshole, but so am I. No one ever stood up to her like I did".

He also made a brief appearance on NBC's "Today" show Thursday morning, once again reiterating he "knew it was going to happen", and urged people to keep an eye on her social media.

The ill-advised attack on one of former US leader Barack Obama's top aides, Valerie Jarrett, cost Barr her revived sitcom, Roseanne, which was immediately cancelled by TV bosses at ABC. "Nice!" Barr, however, was much nicer to Goodman and actress Laurie Metcalf, who played her sister on the show.

Barr's ex-husband, Tom Arnold, says reviving "Roseanne" may have been asking for trouble.

"Michelle Obama must have stuffed that Ambien down her throat and handed her the phone too..." Some members of the cast may still receive compensation for the 2018-2019 primetime season, despite the fact that there's no script in the works and no episodes have been filmed. EW said that "Iger apologized and said he would not tolerate those kinds of comments made by Barr, Jarrett said".

Barr originally said she did something "unforgivable", "egregious" and "indefensible", before suggesting the tweets were a result of taking sleeping pills.

Smith, a fan of both the sitcom's original run and its short-lived revival, appeared on The Joe Rogan Experience, where he told host Joe Rogan he learned of the controversy when wife Jennifer Schwalbach Smith woke him from a post-flight nap.
