2012 Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain said ABC had "been looking for a reason to cancel Roseanne". Jarrett, who is black, was born in Iran to American parents. That's partly why Barr attacked her. Barr frequently uses her Twitter account to deride Democrats.
"Roseanne's Twitter statement is abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values, and we have made a decision to cancel her show", ABC entertainment president Channing Dungey said in a statement to TheWrap on Tuesday.
Ben Sherwood, president of Disney-ABC Television Group, apologized in a memo Wednesday to "the many men and women who poured their hearts and lives into the show and were just getting started on next season".
"He wanted me to know before he made it public that he was canceling the show", Jarrett said in an interview on MSNBC. I am truly sorry for making a bad joke about her politics and her looks.
ABC doing "the right thing" by canceling "Roseanne" raises the question of why NBC didn't do "the right thing by removing Trump from "The Apprentice" when he was pushing his racist 'birtherism" claims against President Obama? I blame them on YOU and yr ignorant comments about #ValerieJarrett!
Federal Bureau of Investigation suggests to turn off internet routers worldwide as malware creates havoc
The malware targets routers produced by several manufacturers and network-attached storage devices by at least one manufacturer. That's because a malware system linked to Russian Federation has infected hundreds of thousands of internet routers.
Sanders also said she was not aware of the president having any conversations with Barr, who is a Trump supporter, following the actress's controversial tweet.
Barr had earlier apologized to members of the cast and crew, but the tweet was deleted.
Barr's agent also dropped her and several services pulled "Roseanne" reruns. Joke news site Daily World Update reported a string of false news stories about a revival of the revival, writing that NBC, CBS and Netflix all expressed interest in adding the successful sitcom to their lineup. But hours later, Ross clarified his report, saying that his source now said Trump had done so not as a candidate, but as president-elect. "I will examine all of my options carefully and get back to U".
Daily Wire contributor Michael Knowles said while Barr's tweet was in poor taste, "the popular furor to fire her is mostly performed and motivated by the Left's hysterical contempt for anyone even vaguely supportive of President Trump".
