Stars react in disgust to Roseanne's Twitter outburst as fallout intensifies

Posted May 30, 2018

She then re-tweeted supporters' statements attacking ABC's hiring of Keith Olbermann, who has harshly criticised President Donald Trump, and a meme that placed Jarrett's photo side-by-side with a Planet of the Apes actor. Campaigns had also been launched on social media to pressure advertisers to drop their support for the sitcom.

"It was a stone cold racist comment", Schmidt said of Barr's tweet.

Roseanne Barr returned to Twitter Tuesday night and issued a new apology for her racist tweet about one of former President Obama's closest confidants. Because Barr has been behaving repugnantly on Twitter for some time, feeding insane right-wing conspiracy theories and peddling anti-Muslim propoganda.

It came after she said sorry to her colleagues on her show Roseanne, who lost their jobs after the TV sitcom was cancelled. "I think we have a lot bigger things going on in the country right now". Today my words caused hundreds of people to lose their jobs. "I also sincerely apologise to the audience that has embraced my work for decades".

"I want to apologise to you". Barr said she was under the influence of Ambien when she sent out the tweets.

"As I tell my 4-year-old, one makes a choice with one's actions", Rhimes tweeted. "I went 2 far & do not want it defended- it was egregious Indefensible".

"Not giving excuses for what I did (tweeted) but I've done weird stuff while on ambien-cracked eggs on the wall at 2am etc", she wrote. By the way, George Soros is a nazi who turned in his fellow Jews 2 be murdered in German concentration camps & stole their wealth-were you aware of that? "I honestly thought she was Jewish and Persian-ignorant of me for sure, but.I did".

But she was able to convince him they needed to take their dog to the vet, where staff called the police when they got her note. Floyd accompanied her armed with a loaded handgun, Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Laura Williams said.

Jarrett is black and was born in Iran to American parents.

Actress Roseanne Barr waves on her arrival to the 75th Golden Globe Awards in Beverly Hills, California, U.S., January 7, 2018.

In an apparent contradiction to her apologies, most of the other sentiments she shared on her Twitter account were angry remarks that her supporters directed at ABC Entertainment. "I hope you can accept this honest apology!" "You throw me under the bus. nice!" "It was widely known and meticulously documented that she was a flagrant bigot before @ABC & @Disney rolled out the red carpet for her anyway", he tweeted.

I'm glad she was wrong. I'm just not married to one. "She's distancing herself from me and my tweet-she has to".

Following Barr's Twitter rant, one of the show's consulting producers, Wanda Sykes, said she's done with the show.

In the early hours of Wednesday morning, she responded to those who had been jumping to her defence, urging them: "Guys I did something unforgiveable so do not defend me". "I cracked & made a stupid insensitive joke-it's my fault".

The writer also tweeted: "I apologize to Valerie Jarrett and to all Americans".
