In the time it takes to tweet, Roseanne Barr loses her job

News of Roseanne's cancellation came from Dungey, who said in a statement, "Roseanne's Twitter statement is abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values, and we have chose to cancel her show".

Roseanne Barr blamed the sleep aid Ambien for a series of racist tweets that resulted in the cancellation of her show "Roseanne" by ABC on Tuesday.

She later tweeted that people should not defend her.

That led to the response on Twitter by the drug maker Sanofi.

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.

Other contracts could be canceled because Barr's tweet is deemed an "act of God" beyond the control of the network.

She also said she believed Jarrett was Saudi or Jewish or Persian, rather than black.

"Please don't compare me2 other people who have said terrible things", Barr tweeted, addressing the fallout from a racist tweet she posted and deleted on Tuesday, which led to the swift cancellation of her ABC reboot series.

When Roseanne Barr sent a racist tweet comparing a former Obama advisor to an ape on Tuesday, the repercussions were swift.

She further apologised to those who had lost their jobs over the matter, including Goodman, but also condemned cast members who "threw me under the bus". "I've been up there 12 times already and if I don't get one by now, I'm not gonna get one". "I will be on Joe Rogan's podcast Friday (sic)", Roseanne tweeted.

What Roseanne Barr did is pretty unique in television history and ABC was completely right to fire her. Questionable actions date back to a cringe-worthy, crotch-grabbing rendition of the national anthem in 1990; a claim, later recanted, that she was an incest survivor; and the 2009 picture reprinted on the Daily News.

After being axed, Barr announced she would be leaving Twitter.

Earlier on Wednesday, President Donald Trump had waded into the row while the pharmaceutical company which makes Barr's brand of sleeping pill said "racism is not a known side effect".

She then said she was leaving Twitter, but it was unclear if she meant for the day or permanently.

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

The original "Roseanne" aired from 1988 to 1997. If you must say the n-word, scream it into a pillow until the feeling passes.
