Trump weighs in as backlash against ‘racist’ Roseanne Barr continues

Ambien Maker Sanofi to Roseanne Barr: No, Our Sleeping Pill Doesn't Cause Racism

Ambien Maker Sanofi to Roseanne Barr: No, Our Sleeping Pill Doesn't Cause Racism

And what if you support Barr, and her right to free speech; where can your voices and opinions be heard?

Ryan Gaydos is an editor for Fox News.

More: What happens to "Roseanne"?

"We always planned on reaching out to Roseanne eventually", Caputo said when reached for comment. "It is extremely offensive but it is just that".

In 1990, at a Cincinnati Red's game, Barr, who would become the Queen of Trump TV, purposely sang the National Anthem out of key while grabbing her crotch and spitting.

"She is a comedian", Nikpour agreed. "Everybody knows her to be a little raunchy and a little rough".

Anti-Kremlin Russian journalist shot and killed in Ukraine
He left Russian Federation in February 2017, saying he was receiving threats and concerned he might be jailed. He said that the attacker shot Babchenko in the back as he stepped out of his apartment to buy bread.

But did ABC do "the wrong thing" by rebooting "Roseanne" to begin with?

And now, even Netflix is getting in on the shadiness...

First her racist tweet cost her sitcom's cast and crew their jobs, now Roseanne Barr is lashing out at her newly-redundant co-stars. "Oh and at the same time hiring a scum of a human in Keith Olbermann". She criticized Democratic financier George Soros and tweeted that Chelsea Clinton was "Chelsea Soros Clinton", implying she was married to a nephew of Soros. "Lying dishonest soulless freaks from Planet of the Apes".

"I am sorry for making a thoughtless joke that does not reflect my values - I love all people and am very sorry". Jarrett, who is black, was born in Iran to American parents.

"Wow! unreal", Barr wrote in response. "I made a mistake I wish I hadn't but.don't defend it please. Ty". He also called for a boycott of ABC.

"Roseanne has said herself that she does not want what she says to overshadow the show in any way, and I do hope that she will continue to be thoughtful about what she shares on social media going forward", ABC Entertainment President Channing Dungey said in the same article.

Roseanne Barr blames the sleeping pill Ambien for her racist tweet
When a fan later tweeted at Barr, "We are defending your free speech and ours", Barr responded, "Thank u, but, it's over". More than 18 million people on average have watched the reboot of " Roseanne " this season, according to Nielsen Co .

"Now when they hear somebody like Roseanne make this comparison, they know where it comes from and they know it's not a joke", Ellis explained.

"Roseanne is an outcast now", said Pizzagate conspiracy theorist Mike Cernovich. She apologized to those who had lost their jobs because of her action, but also condemned cast members who threw her under the bus, in her words.

Barr tweeted that what she did was unforgiveable and urged supporters not to defend her.

Although President Trump didn't explicitly come to Barr's defense, he did imply ABC was guilty of hypocrisy.

"Wow! unreal", Barr tweeted back.

"She has been all over the map with it", Zimmerman said. Barr had retweeted people comparing those celebrities' treatment by the network to her own, insinuating there was a double standard at play.
