ABC cancels 'Roseanne' following Roseanne Barr's racist Twitter rant

Jarrett said later Tuesday that Disney CEO Bob Iger had called her before the network cancelled the show in response to Barr's tweets. It's unclear what "statements" Trump is referencing in the tweet, but it likely relates to ABC News' coverage of his presidency.

"He apologized", Jarrett said during a MSNBC appearance.

Jarrett, who was born in Iran to American parents and raised in the United States, had been the target of false allegations that she practiced Islam during her tenure in the Obama administration. Barr only recently returned to Twitter after taking a break from the social media site following a December feud with people who responded harshly to her tweets praising President Trump and criticizing Hillary Clinton.

"You throw me under the bus. nice!" she said in a tweet directed at Fishman.

Barr blamed the prescription drug, which is made by Sanofi, for her early-morning Twitter rantings in an apology.

The actress had said she was going to quit Twitter after apologizing to Valerie, but she didn't stay silent for long.

Harvey Weinstein's alleged victims speak out, now 'have real hope for justice'
The criminal sex act charge stems from a 2004 encounter between Weinstein and Lucia Evans , a then-aspiring actress. More than 70 women have accused Weinstein of sexual misconduct although the charges relate to only two of them.

Sara Gilbert, who played Roseanne's daughter, Darlene Conner, on the show, revealed that she was very sad and disappointed about the situation and wanted fans to know that Barr's tweet does not reflect the opinions of the rest of the cast. Through her selection of retweets, Barr implied that she was sacked over her support for President Trump. "We don't have much on this network", Kimmel said.

Barr also continued to tweet about George Soros, a liberal donor who has been painted as the villain in many right-wing conspiracy theories.

She also linked former first daughter Chelsea Clinton to billionaire George Soros, who she falsely claimed was a Nazi collaborator.
