Trump to Disney CEO after 'Roseanne' scrapped: Where is my apology?

"Bob Iger of ABC called Valerie Jarrett to let her know that "ABC does not tolerate comments like those" made by Roseanne Barr", he wrote.

Fishman and Gilbert both released statements after Barr tweeted on Tuesday, May 29, that former Barack Obama aide Valerie Jarrett looked like the "Muslim brotherhood" and Planet of the Apes "had a baby".

The pharmaceutical company that makes Ambien has said "racism is not a known side effect" in response to Roseanne Barr blaming the drug for an offensive tweet.

"I'm so sick over this - they will never have better character actors on their network", she said when discussing John and Laurie.

Barr took to Twitter overnight to apologize again and say that she sent out her racist tweet after taking a sedative. "I will be on Joe Rogan's podcast friday". At one point she she wrote: "I mistakenly thought she was white".

Barr's initial tweet came in response to another Twitter user, who accused Mrs Jarrett of helping to hide purported spying during the Obama administration.

Some have defended Barr by suggesting that Bill Maher should be fired for comparing Donald Trump to an orangutan, Fox News reported. She was still replying to fans' tweets as of Wednesday morning. "And he said to me, oh my gosh, you married up in the world".

In the past, the Republican president has cited the program's popularity as evidence that his supporters, who include Barr, want shows that speak to their concerns. Jarrett also said that Iger had called her before the announcement that "Roseanne" was canceled, and that Iger "apologized".

A few hours later, she deleted the tweets about her begging ABC not to cancel the show and her apology to her co-star.

Late-night host Jimmy Kimmel weighed in on Twitter as well, urging users to show Barr compassion, adding that "attacking a woman who is obviously not well does no good for anyone". "I end by offering everyone involved one more apology and prayers for healing of our divided nation", she said Thursday.
