Jimmy Kimmel Offers Up 'Dan' as Solution to ABC's Roseanne Barr Problem

"I apologize from the bottom of my heart and hope you can find it in your hearts to forgive me".

Dictionary.com's Twitter account, an account that has always been known for their sly comebacks in the form of literal dictionary definitions, has contradicted Roseanne Barr's claims that "Ambien tweeting" led to her comparison of former Obama aide Valerie Jarrette to a Planet of the Apes character.

She later followed that tweet by stating "Muslims r NOT a race" and "ISLAM is not a RACE, lefties".

An attempted apology and promise to leave Twitter, which she has failed to do, were not enough to save the show. That's partly why Barr attacked her. Barr frequently uses her Twitter account to deride Democrats.

"I have only taken Ambien once ... but I don't remember one of the side-effects being racism", CNN's John Berman tweeted.

Barr was none too happy with that statement however and fired back on Twitter, writing: 'I created the platform for that inclusivity and you know it. ME.

They go on. "While all pharmaceutical treatments have side effects, racism is not a known side effect of any Sanofi medication". Although she has since apologized and deleted the tweet, the damage was already done. "She slammed Michael Fishman for throwing her 'under the bus" and blasted Sara Gilbert's diss as 'unreal'.

She signed off Tuesday night thanking fans for their "kind comments" and support.

What she wrote was abhorrent, and it's worth cutting ties with her over it. People need to see that.

Iger and Jarrett did not immediately respond to requests for comment about Trump's tweet. "I BLAME MYSELF OK? it's just an explanation not an excuse, Ok, bully?"

It's somewhat appropriate that Jimmy Kimmel was the only late-night comedian on the air with a new episode Tuesday night, because the biggest story of the day came from his network.

"Don't feel sorry for me, guys!" Kenney revealed that after Roseanne's offensive tweet surfaced she called her manager to quit the show.

On Tuesday, the chairman of the network's parent company, Disney, said the cancellation "was the right thing" to do, and Barr was dropped by ICM Partners, the talent agency that represented her.
