Roseanne Barr blames racist tweet on sleeping pills

"It had to happen".

The television network said on Tuesday: "Roseanne's Twitter statement is abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values and we have chose to cancel her show".

Goodman also shrugged off ABC abandoning its Emmy campaign for the show, saying, "I wasn't gonna get an Emmy anyway".

In a since-deleted overnight tweet, Barr blamed a dose of Ambien for the incendiary tweet in which she likened Valerie Jarrett, an African American former White House aide, to an ape.

"I grew to despise Roseanne because of the nasty s- she did to people for no reason - and it was always the people on lower pay, the defenseless and powerless people", the source told The Sun. We don't know her! He told Cooper of a time that Trump criticized her directly after their divorce. "It is a weird thing".

Asked about whether he'd kept up with the activity on Twitter, he added: 'I don't know anything about it.

"She has been all over the map with it", Zimmerman said. "She is a f-king asshole, but so am I. No one ever stood up to her like I did".

It doesn't take a university professor to point out the history in this country of African-Americans suffering disgusting racist attacks, many of which involve the frightful comparisons to primates.

President makes time to meet with Kim Kardashian
Kardashian supported Hillary Clinton, but says she's putting aside her political differences with Trump to seek change. Kardashian West's interest in the overhaul of the criminal justice system expands beyond Ms.

Like other cast members, he has condemned her racist tweet. "Why is it OK?!"

On a lighter note, this hilarious meme made by Dudley Beene could be a nice solution for ABC/Disney, penance for the cast, and a dream come true for fans. It's not a one time joke. But I've got a better idea. "That's an absolute fact".

The last excuse echos sentiments shared by high-powered executives like Bob Iger (Disney), Elon Musk (Tesla), Kenneth Frazier (Merck & Co.) Kevin Plank (Under Armour), and Brian Krzanich (Intel), all who all joined, and ultimately left, Donald Trump's advisory panel over the decision to leave the Paris Climate accord, or for his racially-charged reaction to the incident in Charlottesville. I blame them on YOU and yr ignorant comments about #ValerieJarrett! "You can see him perpetuating mental health issues for the entire country", Arnold said. "He believes that. As he perpetuates that fear to America, watch out Mueller is lying, he is after me. He never says, 'Things are great.' He says, 'Oh my gosh, look how unsafe it is in the inner city and black people'".

"ABC lost maybe $1 billion from this; this show was grinding out money hand over fist and they lost it all because somebody didn't say 'Get that phone out of her hand, '" he said of the situation. "Roseanne's speech wasn't in the control of ABC", said F. Jay Dougherty, a professor who specializes in entertainment and media law at Loyola Law School in Los Angeles.

Despite this, the sincerity of Roseanne's apology has since been widely questioned, after she re-tweeted a series of supportive messages. I'm sure that's part of this.

Experts say high-profile figures in the television industry typically have contractual clauses that give them significant severance for shows that are not produced.

The president's attack seemed to suggest that "millions of people" were offended by the firing of Roseanne Barr and the cancelation of her show, but that is unclear.
