Trump backs Roseanne in Twitter race row

Roseanne Barr Says She Was ‘Ambien Tweeting’ About Valerie JarrettMore

Arnold, a former writer on the original "Roseanne" suggested that Barr's support of President Donald Trump's conspiracy theories played a part in her downfall.

"I condemn these statements vehemently", he said, adding that "we must stand up against; bias, hatred, bigotry and ignorance to make society a better place for all".

Sources tell the outlet that Roseanne Barr's former co-stars are brainstorming ideas about how to keep the show alive after ABC canceled the hit comedy series on Tuesday.

United States television network ABC responded to the "repugnant" tweet by pulling the plug on Roseanne.

54% of people approve of new National Football League kneeling policy
Members of Congress found a partisan divide over the NFL's new policy on players kneeling in protest during the National Anthem. Though he has stopped taking a knee, Reid vowed to continue protesting injustice.

"You can't put some alt-right scumball on your network and give her a platform", animation producer Deb Zak told Vanity Fair back in April.

Barr tweeted an apology to Jarrett for "making a bad joke about her politics and her looks", and offered several more apologies - including one in which she said she was using the sleep aid when she tweeted about Jarrett.

ABC's reboot of "Roseanne" garnered an average of 18.1 million viewers, according to The Hill. Rather than judging Roseanne the show based on what the star was like off camera, I chose to judge the sitcom by what I saw on the screen - separating the art from the artist, and all that.

An old picture of Roseanne Barr dressed as Adolf Hitler, wearing a swastika and pulling burnt cookies from an oven, splashed on the front of the New York Daily News Wednesday like a neon sign asking ABC executives: What were you thinking? Meanwhile the subject of the tweet, Valerie Jarrett, responded to the controversy on MSNBC.

Fortunately, the large majority of concerns regarding the project were appeased when Solo flew into theaters. This second standalone Star Wars anthology film hasn't performed as well as was expected.

Like other cast members, he has condemned her racist tweet. "I made a mistake I wish I hadn't but.don't defend it please".

"So you have to suspect that she knew that the things she was saying on Twitter were inappropriate and controversial, and she knew that those could potentially harm her employment", Ramsey said. "As one source said to me, this was unsurvivable".

"He said he had zero tolerance for that sort of racist, bigoted comment and he wanted me to know before he made it public that he was canceling [Barr's] show and so I appreciate that they did that so swiftly", Jarrett said.

In a tweet posted just after midnight ET, which has since been deleted, Barr wrote, "guys I did something unforgivable [sic] so do not defend me".

Taiwan loses second ally in a month as Burkina Faso cuts ties
Independence-leaning President Tsai Ing-wen told reporters that Taiwan would only work harder at cooperating with other countries. Tsai has lashed out at China's "crude behaviours" since Burkina Faso broke ties.

And while Barr's initial reaction was contrite, apologising to the "hundreds of people" made unemployed by her actions, she moved to the attack on Thursday morning (AEST).
