John Goodman Has Little to Say on Roseanne Barr Controversy

Ted Nugent Joins Roseanne Flap: 'Lying Dishonest Soulless Freaks'

When "Roseanne" premiered to an unexpectedly large audience, Dungey and Sherwood credited the program to an initiative undertaken in the wake of the 2016 election. Although Barr mentioned she had stop Twitter, she got here again early Wednesday morning to apologize, and mentioned the Ambien - a sedative usually used for insomnia - is what led to the offensive tweet.

Barr engaged in a series of tweets Tuesday night, hours after ABC announced it was cancelling the rebooted "Roseanne" over a racist tweet by the comedian attacking Valerie Jarrett, an adviser to former President Barack Obama. She later deleted tweets that referenced Ambien.

Barr was resoundingly condemned Tuesday, including from many who helped make her show successful.

Ambien's manufacturer, Sanofi-Aventis, responded to the news on Wednesday, saying via Twitter, "While all pharmaceutical treatments have side effects, racism is not a known side effect of any Sanofi medication".

Actor Josh Gad made a reference to Barr's later tweet, in which she said that Ambien sleeping pills had been to blame for her initial tweet about Ms Jarrett. "ABC executives thought - and hoped - that Barr would tone down her tweeting and focus on her sitcom".

Oh, and if you were wondering whether those lovable pranksters at Dictionary.com got involved... of course they did. "And I am going to tell you the truth, she wanted it to happen, if you saw how her tweets escalated this weekend", Arnold told The Hollywood Reporter.

Some have defended Barr by suggesting that Bill Maher should be fired for comparing Donald Trump to an orangutan, Fox News reported. Clinton herself corrected Barr online.

The tweet in question referred to Jarrett as looking like the offspring of the "Muslim Brotherhood & Planet of the Apes".

In addition to her remark about Jarrett, Barr is also being criticized over her recent attacks on both Chelsea Clinton and billionaire George Soros, who is a prominent donor to Democratic campaigns. "And he said to me, oh my gosh, you married up in the world". The streaming site has removed every episode of the Roseanne revival. The firm estimates that the 13 episodes that had been ordered for next season would have brought in as much as $60 million, with more through repeat episodes.

In another tweet, Gilbert wrote that it is "incredibly sad and hard for all of us, as we've created a show that we believe in, are proud of, and that audiences love - one that is separate and apart from the opinions and words of one cast member". Stars Sara Gilbert and Michael Fishman took to social media to comment on Roseanne Barr's tweets, calling them abhorrent.

"Good riddance", he tweeted about the "Roseanne" cancellation.
