Roseanne Barr Gets Roasted For Blaming Ambien For Her Racist Tweet

Entertainment Entertainment

In a video obtained by Entertainment Tonight, Goodman, whose character is the husband of Barr's Roseanne, steered clear of commenting on Barr's racist tweet or ABC's decision to cancel the show, which was just starting preparations for Season 2. "'Ambien brings out the racist in all of us?'"

President Donald Trump escalated a grudge against ABC on Thursday in the wake of the cancellation of "Roseanne", tweeting at the chief executive of ABC's parent company.

"Roseanne's Twitter statement is abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values, and we have chose to cancel her show", ABC Entertainment president Channing Dungey said in a statement.

She wrote on Tuesday, "Muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby=vj". "She's allowed to have an opinion but this was different ... this was untenable", the source said.

After Roseanne was canceled, Barr seemed remorseful, telling her fans, "don't defend me, it's sweet of you 2 try, but.losing my show is 0 compared 2 being labelled a racist over one tweet-that I regret even more". "The more I have the more my words will have weight", she tweeted.

The makers of Ambien are not taking Roseanne's bullshit.

While her first encounter with John Goodman was a bit awkward, it wasn't long ago that Emma Kenney told Entertainment Tonight that her TV grandmother Roseanne Barr was "the coolest". If you remember the show "Duck Dynasty", someone who was a star of that show said something that people thought was homophobic in an interview.

It was something rare in today's U.S. entertainment: a depiction of an extended working class family, including supporters of President Trump.

"I will do the spin off of your show starring Darlene's cool kids", she said.

In a statement, Werner said: "I hope the good work done is not totally eclipsed by these abhorrent and offensive comments, and that Roseanne seeks the help she so clearly needs".

Co-host Meghan McCain also jumped in to defend Goldberg, saying that while she fully defends "free speech" she acknowledges that corporations have the right to set acceptability guidelines. But much of its progress would have been threatened if it looked the other way at Barr's tweet.

"I would rather say nothing than to cause more trouble", the 65-year-old explained.
