"And so Americans are sitting at home, like Roseanne, and her fans are like, 'Oh my God, what is happening out there?' And they get anxiety", he added. In her most recent post, Barr again announced her intentions to take a break from Twitter.

On Tuesday, the family sitcom was abruptly cancelled by United States network ABC after its star and creator, Roseanne Barr, posted a racist tweet about Valerie Jarrett, a former administration advisor to Barack Obama.

The infamous tweet Roseanne wrote called a black former Obama aide was the "muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby", so that first point isn't in contention. In a series of tweets on May 31, Roseanne said, "please don't compare me2 other people who have said awful things. You can see him perpetuating mental health issues for the entire country", Arnold said.

The comment was later deleted and Barr released an apology on Tuesday, but it wasn't enough to prevent ABC from cancelling the "Roseanne" show and prompting Barr's talent agency, ICM Partners, from dropping her as well. While he addressed Barr's history with racist tweeting and relationship with President Donald Trump, he claimed he knew the show's end near.

In the clip, both Roseanne and Trump praised Moore's 1989 documentary Roger and Me, about the downfall of Flint, Michigan following General Motors' closing of several plants in the company town.

"I wasn't gonna get an Emmy anyway", he said.

The ill-advised attack on one of former USA leader Barack Obama's top aides, Valerie Jarrett, cost Barr her revived sitcom, Roseanne, which was immediately cancelled by TV bosses at ABC. "But you put that phone in her hand and she is a loose cannon". "She is a fucking asshole, but so am I. No one ever stood up to her like I did".

She continued on to say she is "so flawed" and thanked her followers for their "loving support".

She also apologised to "the hundreds of people and wonderful writers...and talented actors who lost their jobs on my show due to my stupid tweet".

Caputo is the chief marketing officer for the start-up and thinks the time is right to bring the sitcom on board given that the show got the ax from ABC because of Barr's racist comments. "I made a mistake I wish I hadn't but...don't defend it please. ty". She openly apologized to her cast members, including Michael Fishman who days before she had accused of throwing her "under the bus". The trio, who were also a part of the original cast in the 1980s and 1990s, recently negotiated salary increases up to $300,000 an episode.
