After Roseanne Barr tweeted a racist remark toward former President Obama senior advisor Valerie Jarrett, the reboot for Barr's eponymous '90s show was canceled and reruns of the original were pulled from syndication.

She continued: "Attempting to also get phone numbers for Jarrett, Michelle and GS to personally apologize to them tho I disagree with their politics". "Gee, he never called President Donald J. Trump to apologize for the awful statements made and said about me on ABC". I told them I was willing to do anything & asked 4 help in making things right. She got bronchitis, she was overworked, I think she was stressing the f-k out. Her show has become a weekly source of controversy in the current American zeitgeist and it looks like ABC had just had enough. 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. He scoffed & said: "'what u have done is egregious, and unforgivable'". Will I ever recover from this pain?

The actress was able to find plenty of sympathizers though because she noted multiple retweets of people supporting her through this PR crisis. He also recounted an exchange between Trump and himself that questions if the president was a fan of Barr's as he claims or just relishing in the praise she and her show gave him.

It was a bitter pill to swallow for Roseanne Barr (above) after ABC cancelled her hit sitcom over her racist tweets. It's the most gawd bad painful thing.

Journalist Touré connected "Adidon" with Drake's alleged Adidias deal a few hours before Pusha called into The Breakfast Club . Others say if people are going to be mad at Kanye West for wearing a MAGA hat, they'd better bring the heat for Drake , too.

"I failed2 correctly express myself, & caused pain2 ppl", she said in one post to Twitter.

Although there have been rumblings about the sitcom possibly being picked up by a conservative network, it remains to be seen if Barr's racist comments will have long-lasting effects on her career. "I've been up there [11] times already, and if I didn't get one I'm not going to get one". "It's not that I disrespect you guys".

"She's known Trump for 30 years like I have", he told THR.

He said he doesn't know anything about Barr's tweets, including one that featured a racial slur against Valerie Jarrett, a former aide to President Obama.
