Roseanne Barr Blasted for Blaming Michelle Obama for Show Getting Pulled

John Goodman always deserved better lbr.					ABC  Adam Rose

ABC announced they were axing the sitcom in wake of creator Roseanne Barr's racist tweet about former Barack Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett, saying she was a product of a "Muslim brotherhood and Planet Of The Apes". Throughout the day, numerous Hollywood stars have taken to Twitter to react to her initial comments, and later, to celebrate the show's end.

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

"I don't know anything about it", he admitted.

"Gee, [Disney CEO] Bob Iger never called President Donald J. Trump to apologize for the frightful statements made and said about me on ABC", Trump tweeted. It is a dark stain on the history of this country and ABC, being owned by the Disney corporation, has taken the stance that it will not put up with statements of racism, even if it involves their number 1 show.

The remaining cast has been mostly silent since releasing initial statements blasting Barr for her offensive tweets.

Trump wrote that Iger never called him to apologize for "the frightful statements" that have been said about him on ABC.

On Rosanne Barr's twitter feed, bringing back a sitcom starring a loose cannon known for firing off racist tweets, insane conspiracy theories and grabbing her crotch and spitting while butchering the National Anthem, made no sense. "We figure we can get four to five million viewers a week just by advertising exclusively on Fox". She did not say that "anyone associated with" Trump is a white supremacist, but she did tweet last fall that "Donald Trump is a white supremacist who has largely surrounded himself w/ other white supremacists".

In a now-deleted message, she wrote: "Guys I did something unforgiveable so do not defend me. I'm so sick over this-they will never have better character actors on their network", she wrote. The actress came under fire recently for her outspoken support of Trump just before the Roseanne reboot aired. Some of the retweets promoted conspiracy theories and anti-ABC grievances.

Michael Fishman, who played DJ on the series, also spoke up, calling the day one of the saddest of his life and revealing that he's teaching his children to be inclusive, and note use hateful speech. The White House's position is that Iger should have similarly dialed Trump to apologize for Hill's accusation that the president is a white supremacist.

But cancelling "Roseanne" is "like taking off "All in the Family" or "I Love Lucy" or Andy Griffith at their zenith", he said.
