White House says Trump is not defending Roseanne Barr

Barr revealed that she begged Disney-ABC Television Group chief Ben Sherwood not to cancel Roseanne, explaining that when the ABC executive asked her "what were you thinking when you did this?" she explained that she thought Jarrett was white. I'm disappointed by her actions, to say the least.

On the end of the series: "It had to happen. I begged them not to cancel the show", Barr tweeted on Thursday night.

On feeling it wouldn't last long: "I was not surprised that what went down and that the show was canceled".

Barr also said she "intended to bring ppl together" and said it was "a joyous experience" to get "to work on the Roseanne show again".

"Michelle Obama must have stuffed that Ambien down her throat and handed her the phone too..."

Barr compared Jarrett to "Planet of the Apes" and the Muslim Brotherhood, then claimed she was just joking. "Today my words caused hundreds of hardworking people to lose their jobs", she said.

The Republican political strategist managed to get a good deal of publicity Wednesday for a startup streaming service called Bond by saying he is going to reach out to Roseanne Barr.

"When I read her social media in the very beginning, and I saw how she was so into the conspiracy stuff with Donald Trump and so how far gone she was, and the "pizzagate" and Hillary is a pedophile and Obama wasn't born here, she was, you know, a 'birther, ' and how insane that was - I just knew that this would not end well", Arnold said.

Roseanne Barr hasn't finished pleading her case after a controversial week.

Barr originally said her tweet about Jarrett was "indefensible" and begged for forgiveness, reports CBS News correspondent Vladimir Duthiers.

Wednesday evening, Barr, 65, tweeted of fellow co-stars Goodman and Laurie Metcalf, "I just wish ABC had not thrown two of the greatest actors in the world out with me-Laurie and John".

The show would need to be renamed - since you can't have a show called Roseanne without, well, Roseanne - but even if a show were to continue with the existing characters everyone knows and love, there would still be another problem.

Two of her castmates, Sara Gilbert and Michael Fishman, were among those who took aim at their TV mum in statements on Tuesday - Fishman wrote: "I condemn these statements vehemently". Yeah, Roseanne. Because CLEARLY, the impeccable Michelle Obama is wasting a second of her life on you.

Stars including Jim Parsons ("The Big Bang Theory"), Mindy Kaling, and "Girls" creator Lena Dunham called for a spin-off centered around the other members of the Conner family.

Roseanne originally ran for nine seasons from 1988 to 1997, and was greenlit in 2017 for a revived 10 season with the original cast.
