  • 'Roseanne' cancelled after Barr makes ’bad joke’ about Obama aide

Hours after Roseanne Barr told her 784,000 Twitter followers that President Obama's former adviser, Valerie Jarrett, looked like the by-product of the "Muslim brotherhood and planet of the apes" yesterday (May 29), ABC cancelled its newly rebooted series.

However, as Barr's Right-wing supporters began complaining about "the liberal media" taking her down for being an ardent Donald Trump supporter, the comedian ditched her promise to leave Twitter and instead began re-sharing conspiracy theories about her ouster. His co-host Mike Brzezinski then said: "And they were trying to contain her, I do know that".

"Her tweet made ABC very nervous and they canceled the show", Barr claimed.

"I'm sorry for my tweet", she wrote in what tweet that was later deleted. "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 b taken from me". The only one left said she was signing off Twitter for a while and she was offering "everyone involved one more apology and prayers".

ABC cancelled the rival following the outage over Barr's tweet, calling her joke "abhorrent".

"Roseanne" was rebooted in March after a 21-year hiatus with Barr's character recast as a Trump supporter in a rare depiction of working class life on the USA small screen. Shortly thereafter, her agency, ICM Partners, dropped Barr as a client, and Viacom networks pulled reruns of her show off the air. "Maybe I just didn't get the call?" tweeted the president on Wednesday. "He said: what were you thinking when you did this?" Both Barr and her TV character, Roseanne Conner, voiced support for Trump.

Barr has since blamed her behavior on the sleep aid Ambien. She also added a note that she's the most sad about Jayden Rey, the young woman who played Roseanne's black granddaughter on the revival sitcom. However, differing from his similar Wednesday tweet demanding an apology, the president seemingly mentioned Roseanne fans.
