After her show was canceled yesterday a number of Barr’s costars voiced their disappointment concerning Barr’s comments.

Boy, she did not like that.

Courtesy of Mediaite:

Michael Fishman, who returned to the show as D.J. Conner, issued a lengthy statement in reaction to Roseanne’s racist tweet attacking former Obama advisor Valerie Jarrett.

Here’s a portion of Fishman’s statement:

“Today is one of the hardest in my life. I feel devastated, not for the end of the Roseanne show, but for all those who poured their hearts and souls into our jobs, and the audience that welcomed us into their homes. Our cast, crew, writers, and production staff strived for inclusiveness, with numerous storylines designed to reflect inclusiveness. The words of one person do not exemplify the thinking of all involved.”

Roseanne took to Twitter with her response:

Well, that was certainly understanding.

Sarah Gilbert, who may have been the catalyst for the relaunch of the show, also let her feelings be known:

Does not sound as if Roseanne really sympathizes with those adversely affected by her racist tirades.

However, as expected, Trump still has her back.

Still speaking in the third person I see.

Barr also attempted to lay some of the blame for her behavior on the medication Ambien.

The makers of Ambien were quick to respond.

Damn! I wonder if Sanofi makes a medication for third-degree burns?

You know I thought that watching Donald Trump have an emotional breakdown on Twitter was entertaining, but he may have to step up his game.

    Crazy lady being crazy is not exactly newsworthy.

    Though crazy lady being crazy and getting a shout out from crazy president kind of is.

    I loved the comment from the makers of Ambien. “Racism is not a side effect.” The best response to her so far!

    Roseanne Barr ​resorted to the “I’m not a racist” line of defense amid a day of lashing out at all comers on Twitter Wednesday — ​also ​declaring her ​comparison of a black former Obama senior aide to an ape “insensitive, not racist​.​”

    “I’m not a racist, I never was & I never will be,” Barr tweeted​ a day after her rants got the successful “Roseanne” reboot canceled and all her old episodes pulled from the air​.

    “One stupid joke in a lifetime of fighting 4 civil rights 4 all minorities, against networks, studios, at the expense of my nervous system/family/wealth will NEVER b taken from me,” she said.

    The embattled TV star has been getting blasted on social media for being a “racist” and “bigot” following her “planet of the apes” tweet about ​ex-Obama staffer Valerie ​Jarrett.

    Barr, who is now unemployed, has even been getting called out by her supporters.

    “Yes. Her joke was racist and in poor taste. She apologized and deleted the tweet BEFORE the s–t hit the fan,” wrote one Twitter user.

    “Stop saying that,” Barr replied. “It was insensitive not racist.”

    NOW she’s blaming it on Michelle Obama. FAKE NEWS, anyone????
    Read this:

      “Roseanne Barr made it clear on Wednesday she’s considering fighting ABC’s move to cancel her revival after her racist tweet — and the comic even pushed an accusation that former first lady Michelle Obama was behind her ouster.

      Despite initially saying she would be quitting Twitter after posting a negative and racially charged comment about former Obama aide Valerie Jarrett, the star returned Tuesday and let loose on social media.

      On Wednesday, Barr revealed that the positive feedback she was getting from people who still support her was making her feel emboldened to combat ABC in some way.

      “You guys make me feel like fighting back. I will examine all of my options carefully and get back to U,” she wrote.

      One right-wing activist even went as far as to accuse ABC Entertainment President Channing Dungey of consulting former first lady Michelle Obama before canceling her show. Barr retweeted the unproven claim to her followers.

      It’s unclear what specifically Barr is talking about in terms of options. ABC is allowed to cancel any of its shows at any times. As for Barr’s firing, her tweet likely puts her in violation of her contract.

      While it’s unclear exactly what the terms of her negotiations with ABC were when it decided to bring her ’90s sitcom back for a revival, standard practice dictates that a morality clause be baked into actor’s contracts. This provides a remedy for an employer to terminate a public figure in the event they violate a crime or bring negative attention to the brand, in this case, ABC.

      The star might be able to litigate for wrongful termination, but it’s unlikely that even invoking the First Amendment could get her out of the morality clause given the public backlash from her tweet. It’s even more unlikely that she could convince the network to reverse its cancellation and green light a second season of her revival given the extremely negative attention her words brought on the network.

      Additionally, it would be hard for network Entertainment President Channing Dungey to go back on her curt but clear statement in announcing the cancellation.

      “Roseanne’s Twitter statement is abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values, and we have decided to cancel her show,” she told Fox News.”

        Sorry about the typo. He rocked!
        Point being he was teasing, and told everyone at the end how much he respected them.
        This is nothing of the sort.

    Sandra Bernhard has ‘kinda had it’ with Roseanne Barr

    …Speaking on her SiriusXM radio show “Sandyland,” Bernhard — who became a household name after her recurring role as Nancy Bartlett on the original run of Barr’s sitcom “Roseanne” — said she was “sitting on a little bit of an internal volcano” after reading Barr’s tweet about Obama aide Valerie Jarrett.

    …“I’m really trying to breathe through it and stay in that ‘dedicated to the one I love’ mindset,” Bernhard said, referring to her longtime pal Barr, “But I gotta be honest with you — I’m kind of hitting a wall with this. Kinda bummed out. Kinda had it.”

    …Bernhard said, “I don’t understand how anybody who is as smart as Roseanne is could have gone this deep over the line,” adding, “I don’t care if you’re ultra-conservative or uber-left, it’s just like — racism.”

    Melania Trump finally breaks silence after surgery — but the internet is dubious: ‘Blink twice if you need a rescue’

    The first lady hasn’t appeared in public since May 10, before she underwent what has been described as a routine kidney procedure, but her absence has prompted rumors that she’s moved back to New York.

    Mrs. Trump’s Twitter account assured Americans that she was doing just fine, and took a dig at media sleuths.

    Her tweet prompted still more speculation about her whereabouts and well-being.

    Tom Arnold blames Trump for ex-wife Roseanne Barr’s downfall: ‘I knew it wouldn’t end well’

    Roseanne Barr’s ex-husband Tom Arnold said the disgraced TV star’s downfall began after she started following President Donald Trump.

    “Well, I was not surprised about what went down and that the show was canceled. I had a feeling this was going to happen when I first heard it was coming back, ” Arnold told CNN’s Anderson Cooper.

    He said that once Barr got involved with President Trump, that it was only downhill from there.

    “I just know, when I heard about her politics — when I read her social media in the beginning, and saw how she was so into the conspiracy stuff with Donald Trump… I knew it wouldn’t end well.”

    Bible company will force workers to quit if they won’t renounce extramarital sex

    The American Bible Society, is a non-profit that translates and distributes Bibles. The company defines marriage as between a man and a woman. Therefore LGBT couples and sexual active heterosexual employees would be forced to leave.

    President and CEO Roy Peterson wrote in a statement to Religion News: “We did this because we believe a staff made up of people with a deep and personal connection to the Bible will bring unity and clarity as we continue our third century of ministry.”

    Peterson continued: “We understand there are differing views on these matters. This decision does not signal intent to advocate or champion any cause other than increased engagement with the Bible.”

    So far nine people have quit, and the new policy will take effect in January 2019.

      Look. I was raised in a “The Bible or else” home. I am now 60+.
      They can take their deep connection and shove it. Know why?
      Because I have seen everything they SAY that they stand for and the hypocrisy.
