'The View' Sparks Backlash for Calling out Roseanne Barr

07 June, 2018, 16:46 | Author: Lawrence Cooper
  • Roseanne Barr was resoundingly condemned on Tuesday including from many who helped make her show successful

When "Roseanne" premiered to an unexpectedly large audience, Dungey and Sherwood credited the program to an initiative undertaken in the wake of the 2016 election. "The saddest part of all is 4 Jayden Rey on the show whom I grew2 love so much & am so ashamed of myself that she would ever think I do not love her bc she is African American", Barr tweeted. But after Barr's tweet that likened Jarrett, who is black, to a cross between the Muslim Brotherhood and the "Planet of the Apes", ABC cancelled the show in a one-sentence statement from network entertainment president Channing Dungey.

The actress was able to find plenty of sympathizers though because she noted multiple retweets of people supporting her through this PR crisis. "It was 2 within the morning and I used to be ambien tweeting-it was memorial day too-i went 2 far & are not looking for it defended-it was egregious Indefensible". Sanofi US refuted the comedienne's claim that Ambien caused her to write racist messages. "Whereas all pharmaceutical remedies have uncomfortable side effects, racism just isn't a recognized facet impact of any Sanofi treatment", the corporate wrote.

After her firing, Barr said she was leaving Twitter, but has continued making several statements, including one where she blamed the sleep aid Ambien for the tweets that resulted in the show's cancellation. "I don't read it", he said of Barr's tweeting.

Oh, and if you were wondering whether those lovable pranksters at Dictionary.com got involved... of course they did.

The 59-year-old comedian also spoke with The Hollywood Reporter on Wednesday, and implied that Barr wanted her series to be cancelled.

Barr's Twitter hiatus was short-lived, however, as the star has once-again taken to the social media site to fire off a flurry of tweets. "They have to appeal to a national market", Brownell says.National politicians, on the other hand, often rely on a base of committed supporters for money and votes. "I will be on Joe Rogan's podcast friday".

"You throw me under the bus. nice!" she said in a tweet directed at Fishman.

Gilbert said the remarks are "abhorrent and do not reflect the beliefs of our cast and crew or anyone associated with our show", adding that she is disappointed in her longtime friend and colleague.
