Roseanne Barr blames Ambien for tweet; drug maker replies

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

Trump tweeted that the CEO of ABC's parent company called Valerie Jarrett to say the network wouldn't tolerate Barr's tweet about her. Trump wrote that CEO Bob Iger never call him to apologize for "the frightful statements" that have been said about him on ABC".

"I am truly sorry for making a bad joke about her politics and her looks", Barr tweeted. "I feel devastated, not for the end of the Roseanne show, but for all those who poured their hearts and souls into our jobs, and the audience that welcomed us into their homes", Fishman wrote.

Up until now, Goodman - who served as Barr's on-screen husband for more than a decade on Rosanne - has remained silent on her controversial tweet about former Obama aide Valerie Jarrett. She followed it up with an apology that read, "I apologize to Valerie Jarrett and to all Americans". It was a ratings' hit then and now, but Barr's questionable comments and extremely conservative beliefs had led others to boycott the show.

The 18-year-old actress, who played Harris Conner-Healy on the show, revealed that she had an unusual first meeting with her TV grandfather, John Goodman.

"This is a double standard that the president is speaking about", Mrs Sanders concluded, "no one is defending her [Barr's] comments, they're inappropriate".

She urged people not to defend her and said of her Jarrett tweet that she was "ambien tweeting" at 2 a.m. "In fact, I tweeted a lot because I figured someone would take her phone away or monitor that, because it's unsafe when you have that much money on a show". "I was personally horrified and saddened by the comments and in no way do they reflect the values of the people who worked so hard to make this the iconic show that it is".

The network promptly canceled the revival of Barr's sitcom on Tuesday following harsh backlash against her tweet earlier that day.

Comedian and actor Kumail Nanjiani said he is "glad Roseanne is cancelled". ABC cancelled her show.

Iger a year ago quit a Trump advisory council because of the president's decision to withdraw from the Paris climate accord.

But hours later, Mr Ross clarified his report, saying that his source now said Mr Trump had done so not as a candidate, but as president-elect.
