Roseanne Barr lashes out at "Roseanne" co-stars

Roseanne Barr lashes out at

Trump wrote that Iger never called him to apologize for "the terrible statements" that have been said about him on ABC. A sleeping pill was the cause of her racist tweet, as well as her followup tweet accusing George Soros of being a Nazi officer, even though he was 9 years old when WWII broke out. "I just wish ABC had not thrown two of the greatest actors in the world out with me-Laurie and John", Barr tweeted Wednesday night.

US President Donald Trump on Wednesday broke his silence about the racism row engulfing supporter Roseanne Barr, not to condemn her outburst but to attack ABC television for purported media bias.

But Barr also tweeted at a fan and said that she forgave Gilbert, writing: "no, I understand her position and why she said what she said. i forgive her". Showing a flair of their own for tongue-in-cheek comedy, Sanofi, the makers of Ambien, released a tweet saying, to their knowledge, racism wasn't a known side effect of taking the drug. The comic actress later apologized, blaming the 2 a.m. tweet on the sleep aid Ambien. No one is defending her comments. "This is a double standard that the president is speaking about". Jarrett herself said she hoped it could become a "teaching moment" for America. "The day began by reading her tweet and I was immediately horrified".

Donald Trump weighed in on the Roseanne Barr controversy by knocking Walt Disney Co. Though Barr quickly apologized for a joke that "was in bad taste", ABC released a terse statement from entertainment president Channing Dungey, which said: "Roseanne's Twitter statement is abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values, and we have chose to cancel her show". Not at ABC, not at this company.

'It was really hard after Mo's injury'
Aziz added that Salah would hopefully be in the final list of Egypt's team at the World Cup, to be officially announced on June 4. However, many Liverpool fans were left angry and disappointed when Salah was brought down by Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos .

"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, '" Arnold tells THR. The latter tweet is referring to the fact that the Obamas may have had something to do with the cancellation of the show because Roseanne once mocked their Netflix deal. Goodman, 65, plays Dan Conner, the working-class dad on "Roseanne", a character he first made famous in 1988 and revisited earlier this year when the show was rebooted by ABC.

"We always planned on reaching out to Roseanne eventually", Caputo said when reached for comment.

Asked about rumors of a possible Roseanne spin-off with him, Metcalf and Sara Gilbert, Goodman had no information, saying "you've heard more than me".
