Tom Arnold on 'Roseanne' Cancellation: "She Wanted It to Happen"

The racist tweet that led to the cancellation of her show suggested that former Obama White House adviser Jarrett was a product of the Muslim Brotherhood and the Planet of the Apes: "Muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby=vj".

The executive producer of "Roseanne", which came back this spring after being gone for two decades and instantly became television's second most popular comedy, said he supported ABC's decision.

2012 Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain said ABC had "been looking for a reason to cancel Roseanne".

Arnold also questioned whether Trump was really ever a fan of his former wife or just wanted to take credit for her ratings' success.

"The person who is walking down the street minding their own business and they see somebody cling to their purse, or run across the street, or every black parent I know who has a boy who has to sit down and have a conversation, the talk, as we call it", she continued. "You throw me under the bus. nice!" she wrote.

Donald Trump weighed in on the Roseanne Barr controversy by knocking Walt Disney Co. "He may say the tweet, but someone is typing it in...she needed someone to wrangle her in and take her phone".

As the makers of Ambien pointed out, racism is not a side affect of their sleeping pills. She and her husband Michael Parham, a longtime supporter of former President Obama, have worked with Jarrett in the past and consider her a friend.

Barr replied, saying, "Sorry to have tweeted incorrect info about you!I Please forgive me!"

And the American star - whose sitcom returned to TV screens in March following a 21-year hiatus - has thanked her followers for their "kind words".

President Donald Trump weighed in on ABC's unexpected cancellation of top-rated series Roseanne in typical Trump fashion by making it about himself.

He said of the exchange that Trump said: '"Oh my god, you've married up in the world". The network had previously asked her to tone down her controversial statements on social media. The CEO, who has renewed his contract with Disney through December 2021, has acknowledged he considered running for president.

"How do you stop someone who does something like this in the middle of the night?" he said.

Barr had earlier apologized to members of the cast and crew, but the tweet was deleted.

"Now when they hear somebody like Roseanne make this comparison, they know where it comes from and they know it's not a joke", Ellis explained. "I'm hoping that happens with Roseanne", he said.
