In case you were living under a rock and paying no attention to media coverage yesterday (which would mean you weren't on LRM and that's just mean), the revival of Roseanne was canceled by ABC after strong outrage surmounted due to a racist tweet from the star and creator, Roseanne Barr. "I would rather say nothing than to cause more trouble". In the tweet, Barr wrote that Jarrett, an African-American born in Iran, was the product of the Muslim Brotherhood and "Planet of the Apes".

Long before she was writing racist and offensive things on Twitter, Roseanne Barr was allegedly berating and mistreating staffers on the set of her eponymous sitcom, once forcing an underling to grill six burgers - all for her - under a broiling sun, a former TV exec says in a report.

In the past, Trump has cited the popularity of "Roseanne" as evidence that his supporters want shows that speak to their concerns.

But Goodman did not seem too concerned, telling Entertainment Tonight he was doing fine since hearing about Roseanne's ending, and that he did not follow Twitter controversies. Goodman told ET he wasn't bothered by the campaign suspension because he doesn't expect to win an Emmy for the show. "I've been up there 12 times already" - he actually has had 11 Emmy nominations, including seven from 1989 to 1995 for the original run of "Roseanne" - "and if I don't get one I'm not gonna get one".

The afternoon session saw Amir strike twice to initiate a collapse that saw England lose four wickets for 19 runs. Earlier, Pakistan added 13 runs before being bowled out for 363, establishing a first-innings lead of 179.


Roseanne Barr said she begged Ben Sherwood, president of the Disney-ABC Television Group, to let her apologize and save the show along with the jobs of those who worked on it.

Along with the clip, Moore tweeted out, "I know Roseanne". How do you feel about the cast and crew of Roseanne being entitled to a hefty payday in spite of everything?

Her former husband, Tom Arnold, said in interviews published on Wednesday that she wanted the rebooted show to be canceled, and that network executives should have taken away the phone she used to send tweets.

She also blamed the inflammatory post on sleeping pills, saying she had been "ambien tweeting". Would they have cancelled it if they owned the show and dot dot dot?' You can make a bunch of kind of caveats but at the end of the day, something bad happened, and then the network reacted. Michael Fishman, the third Conner child, condemned Barr's remark in a thoughtful statement, to which Barr responded that he "threw [her] under the bus". "I made a mistake I wish I hadn't.don't defend it please". "And they are about to rue the day they knew me..."
