  • Roseanne Barr Apologizes To 'Roseanne' Cast And Crew, Blames Ambien

A reluctant John Goodman took a cautious route with a cameraman who asked him Wednesday about Roseanne Barr's racist tweets and the cancellation of ABC's Roseanne, in which he plays Dan Conner.

The president was referring to ABC News reporter Brian Ross, who erroneously reported late past year that Trump had asked Michael Flynn to make contact with the Russians during the 2016 presidential campaign. "In fact, I tweeted a lot because I figured someone would take her phone away or monitor that, because it's risky when you have that much money on a show". The saddest part of all is 4 Jayden Rey on the show whom I grew2 love so much & am so ashamed of myself that she would ever think I do not love her bc she is African American. I'd worked doing publicity for them for free for weeks, traveling, thru bronchitis.

Barr originally said her tweet about Jarrett was "indefensible" and begged for forgiveness, reports CBS News correspondent Vladimir Duthiers.

Barr continued with Sherwood's alleged response in which he dismissed her apology. Earlier Wednesday, she attempted to explain that, "I'm not a racist, just an idiot who made a bad joke".

"I generally believe he thinks black people are risky and Mexicans are rapists", Arnold said.

Then, she claimed she begged for her show to be spared. "I made a mistake I wish I hadn't.don't defend it please".

Tuesday morning, Barr posted on Twitter about Valerie Jarrett, a former aide to President Barack Obama.

"Muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby = vj", she wrote.

Barr also tweeted: "no, i didnt i blamed myself. stop lying".

A statement by TV network ABC Entertainment slammed the comedian's comments.

The comment was later deleted and Barr released an apology on Tuesday, but it wasn't enough to prevent ABC from cancelling the "Roseanne" show and prompting Barr's talent agency, ICM Partners, from dropping her as well.

The axe fell on Roseanne despite the reboot of the sitcom being the highest rated show in the U.S. this season.

The original Roseanne ran from 1988 to 1997 and was praised for its realistic portrayal of working-class life.
