Roseanne Barr 'begged' ABC not to cancel her show

It was a bitter pill to swallow for Roseanne Barr (above) after ABC cancelled her hit sitcom over her racist tweets.

Earlier this week, Roseanne Barr's controversial tweets about former White House staffer Valerie Jarrett led ABC to cancel its top-rated show "Roseanne".

The French pharmaceutical giant Sanofi was quick to push back - trolling Barr in an acerbic post that quickly went viral.

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. But Barr, the person, isn't just a Trump supporter.

Jarrett responded to the controversy saying she was, "worried about all the people out there who don't have a circle of friends and followers who come right to their defence".

When Roseanne Barr sent a racist tweet comparing a former Obama advisor to an ape on Tuesday, the repercussions were swift.

Jarrett said Disney Chief Executive Bob Iger called her before ABC announced the show's cancellation.

But cancelling " Roseanne " is "like taking off "All in the Family" or "I Love Lucy" or Andy Griffith at their zenith", he said. Roseanne still acknowledged her tweet was not in good taste asked her fans not to defend her sleep-induced comments.


"I begged Ben Sherwood at ABC to let me apologize and make amends".

Producers of axed sitcom Roseanne are set to meet with the show's former network as early as today to discuss the possibility of moving forward without Roseanne Barr. Questionable actions date back to a cringe-worthy, crotch-grabbing rendition of the national anthem in 1990; a claim, later recanted, that she was an incest survivor; and the 2009 picture reprinted on the Daily News.

Sanofi-Aventis also tells people to stop taking Ambien if they find themselves performing complex behaviors - like making phone calls or driving a auto - without being fully awake. Other members of the "Roseanne" cast haven't been as circumspect as Goodman.

Later, Barr denied that she was putting the blame on Ambien, saying it was "just an explanation not an excuse".

That includes rumors and speculation that the show could possibly continue in the future in the form of a spinoff, if Barr's titular character was written off, and the focus was shifted to Goodman's character. "I don't know anything about it", Goodman said when asked what his response was to the fallout.

The original Roseanne ran from 1988 to 1997, featuring a blue-collar family, the Conners, with overweight parents struggling to get by. The only one left said she was signing off Twitter for a while and she was offering "everyone involved one more apology and prayers".
