Roseanne reboot cancelled following racist tweet sent by star Roseanne Barr

Roseanne reboot cancelled following racist tweet sent by star Roseanne Barr

ABC has cancelled Barr's show, the highly rated revival of her sitcom "Roseanne".

Sanofi, the maker of Ambien replied to Barr's tweet about the sleeping pill saying: "While all pharmaceutical treatments have side effects, racism is not a known side effect of any Sanofi medication".

She called her own actions indefensible, saying: "I made a mistake I wish I hadn't but...don't defend it please".

The ad that followed showed stock images of doctors and a person stretching in the morning, while the voiceover said, "Side effects of Ambien include nausea, diarrhea and sudden racism".

However, Rogan took to Twitter on Friday to reveal that Barr wouldn't be appearing after all: "She's not doing well and doesn't want to travel and she's gone radio silent on me, so I'm just going to step away", he wrote.

But it was definitely the most offensive, claiming that if the "muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby", it would be former Barack Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett, who is black.

Roseanne Barr shows no signs she will remain quiet about her firing from her popular ABC series and has highlighted supporters' tweets criticizing the network. "I'm anxious about the people out there who don't have a circle of friends and followers who come right to their defence". "The more I have the more my words will have weight", she tweeted.

Roseanne Barr's racist tweet and the swift axing of her show put hundreds of people out of work, with some wondering whether they would be paid and most knowing they wouldn't be.

The report about Israel's move was widely circulated among travel agents offering trips to the Middle East on Wednesday. Khalil al-Hayya, Hamas's deputy chief in Gaza , said the group was committed to a truce as long as Israel would also.

Barr's agent also dropped her and several services pulled "Roseanne" reruns.

"I don't know anything about it".

She has a history of diving into political conspiracy theories on Twitter, and that's how she ended her Memorial Day weekend. But that was not a promise she was able to keep for long.

The report comes hours after Sherwood shared a company memo to the Roseanne staff apologizing for the show's abrupt cancellation.

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

The UCLA School of Theater, Film and Television graduate said she's always been drawn to TV and describes herself as a huge fan of TV, so her role as president of ABC Entertainment seems fitting.

Goodman, 65, plays Dan Conner, the working-class dad on "Roseanne", a character he first made famous in 1988 and revisited earlier this year when the show was rebooted by ABC.
