'Roseanne' wasn't the only show about working-class America

Moore's message came a day after Roseanne's eponymous sitcom was canceled by ABC following her tweets about former Obama aide Valerie Jarrett, Chelsea Clinton, and Moore himself-and hours after Trump accused the network of allowing media attacks on him to stand. They included one post that juxtaposed an image of Jarrett with an image of a "Planet of the Apes" actor - a comparison that led to her firing.

As a result of Barr's tweets, ABC canceled the series, and the president of ABC Entertainment, Channing Dungey, released the following: "Roseanne's Twitter statement is abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values, and we have made a decision to cancel her show".

The White House said on Wednesday it did not defend the racist tweet by Barr, a Trump supporter.

He described Trump's reaction to the "Roseanne" drama - a tweet asking why Disney CEO Bob Iger hasn't apologized to him for ABC's "horrible" criticism over the years - as "insane", and railed on the president for exacerbating America's anxiety by selling fear instead of unity.

"Gee, he never called President Donald J. Trump to apologise for the frightful statements made and said about me on ABC".

"I wasn't gonna get an Emmy anyway", Goodman continued. Trump said on Twitter.

She empathised with Trump's criticism on social media.

When the show closed in October, Trump tweeted, "While not at all presidential I must point out that the Sloppy Michael Moore Show on Broadway was a TOTAL BOMB and was forced to close". "She knows he's an asshole". Trump tweeted Thursday morning.

Kean, the president of Kinder Morgan, called it a "great day for Canada, for our customers and for our employees". Our government is determined to defend British Columbia's interests within the rule of law and in the courts.

The president also complained to Iger a day earlier.

Barr was responding to a comment about Jarrett, and claimed she was joking.

And after blaming the sleep medication for the Twitter rant, Barr also turned to a surprising target - her "Roseanne" team.

"My wife wakes me up and she goes, "You've got a meeting, don't forget, it's 11:30". "That's why I had wished that it wasn't so sudden".

On Tuesday, Barr had apologized "for making a bad joke" about Jarrett, who is black and was born in Iran to American parents.

On feeling it wouldn't last long: "I was not surprised that what went down and that the show was canceled". Despite this week's cancellation of her show, Barr insisted on Twitter she's "not a racist".

On whether or not Barr can be forgiven for her comments, Smith said, "Can she be forgiven?"

A reality show called "Roseanne's Nuts" aired on Lifetime in 2011, and this week both her ex-husband and one-time co-star Tom Arnold and her friend, late-night talk show host Jimmy Kimmell have suggested that Barr had become emotionally unstable.
