Roseanne Barr says she 'begged' ABC to save her show

Roseanne Barr says she 'begged' ABC to save her show

"Hey guys, don't defend's sweet of you 2 try, but.losing my show is 0 compared 2 being labelled a racist over one tweet-that I regret even more", she wrote in a replacement tweet.

Instead of severing ties with Barr, he went after Iger on Twitter for his apology to Jarrett. "If it hadn't happened yesterday, this season would have been so terrible for everyone every day because she would have felt like she was [being] taken advantage [of], just like when I left the show".

ABC said her comment was "repugnant" and pulled the plug on the show, but there might be hope for her co-stars.

The video came Thursday, the same day Barr posted a long list of tweets, many of them asking for forgiveness.

"Roseanne's Twitter statement is abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values, and we have made a decision to cancel her show", ABC said. The 11-time Emmy nominee continued, "I've been up there 12 times already, and if I didn't get one by now, I'm not gonna get one".

Addressing the backlash she received for a racist tweet, she returned to the platform to say: 'Please do not compare me to other people who've said terrible things.

Earlier this week, Barr tweeted that Jarrett, who is African-American and born in Iran, is like the "muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby". Dressed in khaki shorts and a red T-shirt reading "Missouri State University" - his alma mater, known at the time as Southwest Missouri State University - Goodman was speaking while picking up his auto from a New Orleans fix facility, the entertainment-news program said.

When the scandal first broke, the White House had deflected questions with Sanders saying: "We have a lot bigger things going on in the country right now". Michael Fishman, the third Conner child, condemned Barr's remark in a thoughtful statement, to which Barr responded that he "threw [her] under the bus".

"I am truly sorry for making a bad joke about her politics and her looks", Barr tweeted.

Comedian and late show host Jimmy Kimmel spoke out in Roseanne's defence, telling people to back off and have some compassion.

"I failed2 correctly express myself, & caused pain2 ppl", she said in one post to Twitter. "The president is pointing to the hypocrisy in the media", she said.
