Tom Arnold Says Ex-Wife Roseanne Barr Wanted to Get Canceled

Tom Arnold Says Ex-Wife Roseanne Barr Wanted to Get Canceled

It's been a whirlwind 24 hours for Roseanne Barr, whose hit show "Roseanne" was canceled yesterday by ABC after the star's racist tweet that was directed at Valerie Jarrett, a former President Barack Obama aide.

In her most recent post, Barr again announced her intentions to take a break from Twitter.

In a now-deleted message, she wrote: "Guys I did something unforgiveable so do not defend me".

Barr originally said her tweet about Jarrett was "indefensible" and begged for forgiveness, reports CBS News correspondent Vladimir Duthiers. In one tweet, she admitted that her assumption was "ignorant of me for sure".

And Barr pointed a finger at Wanda Sykes, the show's consulting producer, for ultimately causing the show's demise. She told USA Today earlier this year that "I had to get off social media because everybody's mad at me".

The White House has said that the president was merely calling out media bias, not defending Barr. But her show drew praise from President Donald Trump, who attributed its popularity in part to his supporters.

Although there have been rumblings about the sitcom possibly being picked up by a conservative network, it remains to be seen if Barr's racist comments will have long-lasting effects on her career.

"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 United States small screen. "He said: what were you thinking when you did this?"

The American comedian claimed that she was "ambien tweeting" when she said Valerie Jarrett, who is black, is the product of the Muslim Brotherhood and Planet Of The Apes.

ABC Entertainment president Channing Dungey said: "Roseanne's Twitter statement is abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values, and we have chose to cancel her show".

The actress was able to find plenty of sympathizers though because she noted multiple retweets of people supporting her through this PR crisis.

"Wow unreal! You throw me under the bus", Barr said on Twitter.

"I'm not a racist, I never was & I never will be", she also wrote. They should have contacted her personally "2 talk rather than do it in a public arena", she tweeted this afternoon.
