  • Trump Asks ABC for Apology After Flap Over Barr's Racist Comments

Tweeted Gilbert, who played daughter Darlene: "Roseanne's recent comments about Valerie Jarrett, and so much more, are abhorrent and do not reflect the beliefs of our cast and crew or anyone associated with our show".

Just days after ABC pulled the plug on Roseanne Barr's hit sitcom, Roseanne, because of the actor's racist tweets, the show's namesake is still talking.

Earlier this week, Sherwood sent out an email to ABC staff sympathizing with those who "poured their hearts and lives into the show" and would now be out of work.

To refresh: Barr compared former Obama senior advisor Jarrett to an ape on Tuesday and suggested she was a member of the Muslim Brotherhood.

Despite vowing to leave Twitter, Barr returned to social media after Tuesday's cancellation to describe her comments as "indefensible", before retweeting several statement in support of her.

Messi announces desire to play for Newell's Old Boys
"Against Iceland we will have to take advantage of the domain, we need a high level of force in the World Cup ". Messi, 30, left Newell's at age 13 and thus did not appear in a senior match for the club.

"I grew to despise Roseanne because of the nasty s- she did to people for no reason - and it was always the people on lower pay, the defenseless and powerless people", the source told The Sun. She also got her show cancelled over it, so idiot probably applies nicely as well.

"One stupid joke in a lifetime of fighting 4 civil rights 4 all minorities, against networks, studios, at the expense of my nervous system/family/wealth will NEVER b taken from me".

Meanwhile, Barr says she "begged" to keep her sitcom from being cancelled. She attempted to do damage control by saying the sleeping pill, Ambien, caused her to post the offensive tweet. When the Twitter user pointed to her previous tweets-and the headlines they inspired-she wrote, "i blamed myself. stop lying".

"He said: "what were you thinking when you did this?' I said: 'I thought she was white, she looks like my family!' He scoffed & said: 'what u have done is egregious, and unforgivable".

On Thursday, he doubled down on his request for an apology. "He believes that. As he perpetuates that fear to America, watch out Mueller is lying, he is after me". 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.
