Trump Responds to Fury Over Roseanne, but Not Her Racist Remarks

Without mentioning Barr's friendship to President Donald Trump, Jarrett implied that controversial comments from the sitting president, which have included name-calling and belittling critics on Twitter, have emboldened some of his supporters to follow his lead. Barr had retweeted people comparing those celebrities treatment by the network to her own, insinuating there was a double standard at play.

Barr's agent also dropped her and several services pulled "Roseanne" reruns.

With the cancelation of her series, her co-stars speaking out against her words, and Twitter having a field day mocking Barr, Williams doesn't believe the star has much of a career left at this point. "He apologized. He said he had zero tolerance for that sort of racist, bigoted comment and he wanted me to know before he made it public that he was canceling his show and so I appreciate that they did that so swiftly".

"I think it reflects an irresistible urge when there's a big, negative cultural controversy for many in the mainstream media to turn it into a Trump negative controversy", he pointed out, adding that Barr has a long history of controversial political statements. "I forgive her. It just shocked me a bit, but I indeed f-ed up". "I hope the good work done is not totally eclipsed by those abhorrent and offensive comments, and that Roseanne seeks the help she so clearly needs".

Which Starbucks locations are closed for racial-bias training May 29?
The company's massive closure for racial bias training was organized after the coffee giant came under fire after the arrests. Alexis McGill Johnson, Perception's co-founder and executive director, said anti-bias training is about awareness.

And Barr pointed a finger at Wanda Sykes, the shows consulting producer, for ultimately causing the shows demise. Barr has yet to respond to the show's cancellation.

ABC has canceled its successful "Roseanne" revival following racist tweets written by its star, Roseanne Barr, and the backlash against the comedian came fast and furious. Trump even called Barr personally to congratulate her on the show's success.

The tweet was later deleted, but a screenshot of the post was widely shared, and a firestorm erupted.

Among her multiple apologies, Barr said sorry to the show staff and cast who lost their jobs as a result of the Twitter rant.
