Barr apologized for her tweet, saying she had made a bad joke and that she has been a longtime champion of civil rights.
Fishman and Gilbert both released statements after Barr tweeted on Tuesday, May 29, that former Barack Obama aide Valerie Jarrett looked like the "Muslim brotherhood" and Planet of the Apes "had a baby".
I doubt Jarrett's feelings were hurt because she knows, like everyone else, that even with two broken legs and rubber crutches she could run moral and intellectual rings around Barr any day of the week.
American TV network ABC dropped the TV show earlier this week, after writer and actress Roseanne posted a racist message on Twitter. Retweeting memes and fans defending her hours after news broke that her ABC show had been cancelled, Barr blamed the mishap on the fact that she'd consumed some Ambien.
I made it a point to specify that Barr was the type of Trump supporter who peddles in disgusting conspiracy theories, vile racism, and destructive lies. You throw me under the bus.
Jarrett, 61, said on Tuesday that Disney Chief Executive Bob Iger called her before ABC announced the show's cancellation.
"First of all, I would like to say that what she said was blatantly the definition of racism".
"Gee, he never called President Donald J. Trump to apologise for the terrible statements made and said about me on ABC".
'The same ABC who hired her after years of her posting other tweets saying Hillary was running a child sex abuse ring out of a pizza restaurant in DC, that the Clintons had murdered people, and anyone who criticized Benjamin Netanyahu was a Nazi, ' Moore wrote. His statements after Charlottesville were not shocking if you paid attention to what candidate Donald Trump said on the campaign trail.
Michael Moore has revealed that he's been working on a "secret project" involving Donald Trump and Roseanne Barr.
In another tweet, Barr told her followers, "Guys I did something unforgiveable so do not defend me". Hulu said episodes of the new show would no longer be available on its streaming service. The closest analogy is CBS pulling the plug on the Smothers Brothers variety show due to their anti-war views in the late 1960s and the same network not renewing "Lou Grant" at its peak, which star Ed Asner always contended was due to his outspoken political beliefs.
