Chicago State Professor: Roseanne Barr’s Tweet Is ‘Disheartening’

Ambien Maker Sanofi to Roseanne Barr: No, Our Sleeping Pill Doesn't Cause Racism Roseanne Accuses Michelle Obama Of Being The Real Reason For Her ABC Show Getting Canceled

"A lot of people there are just middle class Americans making a living and now they're out of work, especially at a time when we're ramping up into production for the fall season", Rebecca Sun of the industry trade publication The Hollywood Reporter said in an interview with The Associated Press.

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

Kelly Norman Ellis says she is teaching her students about the painful, historical context.

The remaining cast has been mostly silent since releasing initial statements blasting Barr for her offensive tweets. "One stupid joke in a lifetime of fighting 4 civil rights 4 all minorities, against networks, studios, at the expense of my nervous system/family/wealth will NEVER be taken from me".

"Guys I did something unforgivable so do not defend me", she wrote, after retweeting many fans who had been defending her.

USA president Donald Trump has weighed in on the Roseanne Barr debate. Barr later wrote that "i blamed myself. not ambien".

Despite saying she blames herself and a couple of apologies, Roseanne Barr still seems to be pointing the finger at others when it comes to the cancelation of her sitcom.


"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.

He noted that Robert Iger, chief executive of ABC parent Walt Disney Co., called Jarrett to tell her that ABC did not tolerate Barr's comments. "He may say the tweet, but someone is typing it in...she needed someone to wrangle her in and take her phone". They included one post that juxtaposed an image of Jarrett with an image of a "Planet of the Apes" actor - a comparison that led to her firing.

The network is reportedly hesitant to simply continue the show without Barr, as she is credited as a creator of the sitcom and its characters, so she would still benefit financially from a continuation.

Earlier that day, she also targeted Chelsea Clinton, tweeting, "Chelsea Soros Clinton", suggesting in another tweet that the former first daughter is in cahoots with liberal businessman George Soros because she married his nephew.

"She has been all over the map with it", Zimmerman said.

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said as much on Wednesday, too, ripping Bob Iger for his "double standard" when it comes to his employees' conduct. "I will examine all of my options carefully and get back to U".
