President Donald Trump has tweeted his thoughts after the Roseanne reboot was cancelled by ABC. "It was 2 in the morning I was ambien tweeting-it was memorial day too", tweeted Barr.

They go on. "While all pharmaceutical treatments have side effects, racism is not a known side effect of any Sanofi medication".

He went on to stand directly against Barr's tweet, saying he "vehemently" condemned her statements as "reprehensible and intolerable".

Late Tuesday and into Wednesday morning Barr called that message "unforgiveable".

Then Gilbert tried to distance the show from Barr.

Sara Gilbert, who played the role of Darlene on Roseanne, said that Barr's comments were "abhorrent" and that she was "disappointed" with Barr.

"Don't feel sorry for me, guys! Our government is only going to be as good as we make it be". "I just want to apologize 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".

"I think Joe Rogan is right about ambien", Barr said in a now deleted tweet that she sent about 2 a.m. on Wednesday.

Most of the dissent has been focused on the show's star.

"Our goal was to promote constructive discussion about the issues that divide us", said Tom Werner. In response to Michael calling Roseanne's comments "reprehensible and intolerable" and saying that he's "always lived and taught my children to be inclusive", Roseanne replied, "I created the platform for that inclusivity and you know it. Me".

When a fan later tweeted at Barr, "We are defending your free speech and ours", Barr responded, "Thank u, but, it's over". Roseanne also accused billionaire George Soros, who's Jewish, of being a Nazi collaborator and attacked Chelsea Clinton. Clinton herself corrected Barr online.

The Rev. Al Sharpton, who appeared alongside Jarrett in the MSNBC town hall, had harsh words for Barr and for Trump, who he said had long engaged in "dog-whistling" to racists.

Valerie Jarrett did not seek the spotlight when she served as a senior adviser to former United States president Barack Obama, but has found herself at the centre of a media storm in recent days.

Three weeks earlier, "Roseanne" was the toast of ABC's annual presentation of its programming plans to advertisers. The premiere episode (which aired on March 27) had more than 18 million viewers.
