Roseanne says she ‘begged’ ABC to save her show

'Roseanne' cancelled after Barr makes ’bad joke’ about Obama aide

Comedian Roseanne Barr tried Wednesday to blame her inflammatory tweet comparing the appearance of former Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett to a character from "Planet of the Apes" on her prescription to the sleep medication Ambien.

Roseanne Barr said she begged Ben Sherwood, president of the Disney-ABC Television Group, to let her apologize and save the show along with the jobs of those who worked on it. - I just want to apologise to the hundreds of people, and wonderful writers (all liberal) and talented actors who lost their jobs on my show due to my stupid tweet.

Sanofi US, which makes the drug, responded on Wednesday morning to the American actress' claim, clearly not happy that it was being used as a scapegoat for someone who has well-documented instances of racism before.

Mr Trump targeted Robert Iger on Twitter, saying: "Iger, where is my call of apology?" Trump tweeted. "You and ABC have offended millions of people, and they demand a response".

The president was referring to ABC News reporter Brian Ross, who erroneously reported late past year that Trump had asked Michael Flynn to make contact with the Russians during the 2016 presidential campaign.

Trump Says June 12 Meeting With Kim Jong-un Is Back On
Trump wrote in his letter last week that the talks would be "inappropriate" following the "hostility" from North Korea. Kim Yong Chol is the highest ranking North Korean official to visit the United States in almost two decades.

One and a half years later, the Russian Federation controversy still dogs Trump and he still regularly bashes the media for its coverage of his presidency and its potential ties to the Kremlin.

Among the retweets were several posts suggesting that Barr's Roseanne co-stars threw her under the bus by denouncing the racist joke. I told them I was willing to do anything & asked 4 help in making things right. "I will be on Joe Rogan's podcast Friday (sic)", Roseanne tweeted.

"I wasn't gonna get an Emmy anyway", Goodman said.

Despite vowing that she was leaving Twitter, Barr returned to the platform with comments and other apologies. Shortly thereafter, her agency, ICM Partners, dropped Barr as a client, and Viacom networks pulled reruns of her show off the air. The ABC network called her comment "abhorrent" and promptly cancelled the sitcom, which was revived this year.
