Roseanne’ Canceled by ABC After Roseanne Barr’s ‘Repugnant’ Comments Network President SaysMore

"It's out there, what she's done, what she said, what she believes".

As for Barr's comments, she was sacked from her hit ABC series Roseanne today after tweeting an anti-Semitic conspiracy and saying, "muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby=vj" - which a refernce to the former Obama aide Valerie Jarrett, who is a person of color.

Barr also revealed she would appear on Joe Rogan's podcast on Friday. The tweet has since been deleted.

The Argentina superstar will be 35 by the time the 2022 World Cup finals in Qatar gets underway and may not be as effective then as he is now.

ABC's cancellation of "Roseanne" isn't the only blowback its star is facing after she unleashed a series of racist and offensive tweets. What "leaving Twitter" means is unclear. We applaud ABC for taking a stand against racism by canceling 'Roseanne.' We commend the network and. "I'm exhausted of being attacked & belittled more than other comedians who have said worse", Barr wrote, without specifying which comedians she was referring to. In another tweet: "Roseanne's recent comments about Valerie Jarrett, and so much more, are abhorrent and do not reflect the beliefs of our cast and crew or anyone associated with our show".

In another tweet, Barr asked people to not defend her, even though it was "sweet" of them to try, and claimed she was on Ambien (sleeping medication) at the time of the incident. "I apologize from the bottom of my heart and hope you can find it in your hearts to forgive me". To Fishman, she wrote, "i created the platform for that inclusivity and you know http://it.ME".

"Roseanne's Twitter statement is abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values, and we have made a decision to cancel her show".

Hamilton: Monaco needs to be changed
After crashing in FP3 yesterday, Verstappen couldn't participate in qualifying and started the race in the last row. Nico Hulkenberg ( Renault ) and Max Verstappen ( Red Bull ) finished in eighth and ninth positions respectively.

"On the eve of historic fights for health care and clean energy, opponents of reform have mounted a vicious smear campaign against me", he wrote in September 2009.

"I'm fine", she said.

Her tweet yesterday about former Obama aide Valerie Jarrett was a lapse too revolting to be ignored. I imagine George Soros's nephews are lovely people.

Indians among 11 dead due to Oman cyclone
Cyclone Mekunu hit southern Yemen and the coast of neighboring Oman over the weekend, leaving several dead and others missing. They laughed and shared plates by flashlight in a darkened ballroom, the cyclone's wind a boring roar behind their clatter.

Several minutes prior to the post, she shared a similar sentiment regarding her desire for fans not to stick up for her, despite the fact that she appreciates their efforts. I feel so empowered by @iamwandasykes, Channing Dungey and anyone at ABC standing up for morals and abuse of power. It represented the work of hundreds of talented people.
