Roseanne: 'I Begged Them Not To Cancel The Show'

Trump himself weighed in on the cancellation on Wednesday, noting Disney CEO Bob Iger had called Jarrett but did not contact him when ABC aired controversial statements about his presidency.

The comments elicited wide criticism against the star, ultimately leading to the next season for the reboot of her namesake show being canceled and her talent agency, ICM Partners, deciding to drop her. "The real Roseanne I know could probably use some compassion and help right now", Kimmel tweeted.

Barr had returned to TV screens in March after a 21-year hiatus with her character recast as a Trump supporter in a rare depiction of working-class life on the United States small screen.

Meanwhile, Barr has taken to Twitter to reveal that she "begged" ABC to not cancel her sitcom.

Just days after ABC pulled the plug on Roseanne Barr's hit sitcom, Roseanne, because of the actor's racist tweets, the show's namesake is still talking.

"I wasn't going to get an Emmy anyway", Goodman said.

Arnold, who was married to Roseanne from 1990-94, said the drama could have been avoided if someone kept Roseanne's phone away from her, but nobody was successful-or, perhaps, courageous enough.

In the meantime, Barr has continued retweeting messages of support from fans, including casting the outrage over her racist language as "purely political".

But the thing is...she did not really mention what she was forgiving them for!

"Guys I did something unforgivable so do not defend me", Barr wrote.

In her controversial tweets, Barr had used Jarrett's initials and wrote, "Muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby". One idea mentioned in a report by Entertainment Weekly is to create a similar but new show centered around modified versions of the characters played by Gilbert, John Goodman, Laurie Metcalfe, and more. 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. He tanked the market with an ABC lie, yet no apology. After Sara and Michael slammed her social media activity, she tweeted that they had thrown her "under the bus".

"He was upset that she made him do something that was not his job or in his job description - and he wasn't her assistant", the source told the news outlet.
