'I wasn't gonna get an Emmy anyway': John Goodman on Roseanne controversy

  • Roseanne Barr and John Goodman in a promo

She zig-zagged between apologizing for her remarks and retweeting memes that made her apology sound insincere.

Among her retweets: Photos of former Obama aide Valerie Jarrett side by side with an ape.

Jarrett has since stressed that Barr's remarks should be seen as "a teaching moment". "When I read her social media, in the very beginning..."

It isn't for everybody however; the video warns users not to take it if they've ever wondered why there isn't a white history month, used the phrase 'I'm not racist but, ' or if they've tweeted racist things to their boss in the past. Yes, I have had odd ambien experiences on tweeting late at night-like many other ppl do. "I made a mistake I wish I hadn't.don't defend it please". Barr, who insisted she is "moving on", deleted that tweet, too. "Hey guys, don't defend me.it's sweet of you 2 try, but.losing my show is 0 compared 2 being labelled a racist over one tweet-that I regret even more", she wrote in a replacement tweet. I will handle my sadness the way I want to.

When asked if he had any comments about what is being posted on Twitter, Goodman said "I don't know anything about it".

Some of her replies to fans clearly expressed how she feels.

Barr has since blamed her behavior on the sleep aid Ambien. She also lashed out at co-stars Michael Fishman and Sara Gilbert. "And I am going to tell you the truth, she wanted it to happen".

Arnold said that Barr's support for President Donald Trump and her belief in conspiracy theories ― such as "Pizzagate", a debunked theory about child sex rings associated with pizza parlors, and claims that Obama was not born in the United States ― were indications to him that something would go seriously wrong. One of the posts she shared said, inexplicably, "they brought the show back so they could inevitably cancel the show when she said something they didn't like". Trump called her up when "Roseanne" drew record ratings for its premiere in March.

Trump picked up on that comment in his tweet on Wednesday.

If he were in Dungey's position when the rebooted "Roseanne" was being considered - mindful that his job is to produce hits, or it won't be his job much longer - Harbert said he probably would have taken several meetings with Barr to figure out how she was doing. However, Trump did not address the substance of what Barr tweeted or ABC's decision to pull the plug on "Roseanne".

- Will President Trump comment at all?
