John Goodman speaks after "Roseanne" cancellation, Barr's racist tweet

Wanda Sykes Quits 'Roseanne' Reboot, Show Cancelled Following Star's Racist Twitter Post

She cited Ambien again in a later tweet, saying, "Not giving excuses for what I did (tweeted) but I've done weird stuff while on ambien - cracked eggs on the wall at 2am etc". All told, she posted more than 100 times. "I created the platform for that inclusivity and you know it. ME. I tweeted a lot to watch out because I could see it coming". Sykes had responded to Barr's invective by announcing via Twitter that she wouldn't return to the show. At one point she said she believes she was sacked because of fears over a potential boycott of the show's advertisers.

How can you share your words of support for a network - who is, after all, a corporation with a goal to make money - who just put decency ahead of dollars?

"While all pharmaceutical treatments have side effects, racism is not a known side effect of any Sanofi medication", tweeted the French pharmaceutical giant in an acerbic post that quickly went viral.

Long before her racist tweet to Valerie Jarrett, Arnold was aware of her social media behavior and told Cooper that he was surprised that ABC made a decision to revive the show because of that. Not surprised and I wouldn't doubt it being very true, ' another tweet said.

Arnold, who was a writer and sometimes actor on the original "Roseanne" TV show in the 1980s and 1990s, was married to the comic actress for four tumultuous years.

American Freed From Venezuelan Prison Meets With Trump in Oval Office
Josh Holt's parents praised Trump, other administration officials and lawmakers involved in securing his and his wife's release. Joshua Holt, 26, from Utah has been held in a Venezuelan prison on allegations of spying for the USA , according to reports.

Barr seemed to liken the reaction from her co-stars and those a supporter called "her underlings" to the way Trump complains about members of his administration being "disloyal".

Barr continued tweeting on Wednesday, at one point saying the offending tweet was composed at 2 a.m. after she took the insomnia drug Ambien. "Even though the show was a ratings success, forces within ABC didn't like the fact that her conservative defense of certain things was so popular". Some of the retweets promoted conspiracy theories and anti-ABC grievances.

"I'm not a racist, I never was & I never will be", she wrote Wednesday.

One message she re-tweeted on Wednesday falsely accused the Hungary-born Jewish billionaire of collaborating with the Nazis. "I figured someone would take her phone away or monitor her", he said.

It's unclear if "Roseanne's" 10th season will be eligible for any Emmys.
