Valerie Jarrett Responds After ‘Roseanne’ Star’s Racist Tweet

USA comedian Roseanne Barr appeared to blame the sleep aid Ambien and Memorial Day for her tweet that compared a former Obama administration official to an ape, a racist remark that prompted ABC to cancel her top-rated show, Roseanne. "Roseanne" co-star Sara Gilbert, via Twitter.

But in messages posted from her Twitter account on Wednesday, Barr claimed she had been mistaken about Jarrett's race. To Fishman, she wrote, "i created the platform for that inclusivity and you know http://it.ME". She then tweeted another apology and said she was leaving Twitter.

Disney CEO Bob Iger added that "there was only one thing to do here, and that was the right thing", in a statement on Twitter. "I hope the good work done is not totally eclipsed by these abhorrent and offensive comments, and that Roseanne seeks the help she so clearly needs".

Three weeks earlier, Roseanne was the toast of ABC's annual presentation of its programming plans to advertisers. She later deleted that retweet, and retweeted others who called it out for being fake.

It was a doozy of a tweetstorm and the lowlight was when Barr referred to former Obama White House adviser Valerie Jarrett as the progeny of the Muslim Brotherhood and apes.

The fight to protect that law has resulted in women being denied medication they needed and in some case, dying. Many young, conservative women share pro-life views, including 21-year-old Dublin student Maria Maynes.

Barr also said her firing "worked out" because she "would leave when they started to try to censor me". In an upcoming special on MSNBC, Jarrett suggested Barr's racist tirade should serve as a lesson to all, and explained Donald Trump's responsibility in the matter. The initial tweet outraged fans and as well as her own castmates. Channing Dungey is president of ABC and therefore is the woman who made the decision about Roseanne and her show.

The condemnation for Roseanne's tweet was loud and widespread, and after defending and deflecting its star throughout the course of the revival, ABC finally announced it was canceling "Roseanne." Today my words caused hundreds of hardworking people to lose their jobs.

"I am disappointed in her actions to say the least". Dan and Roseanne were blue collar workers who often struggled to make ends meet.

"Look at Roseanne-I called her yesterday-look at her ratings, look at her ratings!" said the president saying the show, "was about us [the supporters and the president himself]". Was it really that savvy for ABC to further enrich and empower a celebrity whose well-documented racist and transphobic beliefs only serve to worsen the pain and vulnerability felt by America's truly marginalized communities?
