And, in one of her many tweets and retweets Wednesday, Barr expressed sadness that Roseanne co-star Goodman and Laurie Metcalf also lost their jobs as a result of the cancellation, but she blamed ABC.
Despite defenses from TV show hosts that equate "being a racist" with "having mental health issues" in a way that's quite offensive to people with mental health issues who nevertheless don't tweet racist things.
Barr sounds like she would support such a development. "I am disappointed in her actions to say the least". 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.
"I am exhausted of being smeared-over a stupid mistake erasing 30 yrs of activism", she wrote.
The show would need to be renamed - since you can't have a show called Roseanne without, well, Roseanne - but even if a show were to continue with the existing characters everyone knows and love, there would still be another problem.
"I think you could tell equally compelling stories without [Roseanne]", Smith said.
"I begged Ben Sherwood at ABC 2 let me apologize & make amends", she wrote. "I wasn't gonna get an Emmy anyway", he said when asked if he thought the Barr controversy would cost him the award.
It's been a whirlwind 24 hours for Roseanne Barr, whose hit show "Roseanne" was canceled yesterday by ABC after the star's racist tweet that was directed at Valerie Jarrett, a former President Barack Obama aide.
Barr, who is no stranger to posting conspiracy theories, drew fierce criticism for appearing to affirm the tweet, which has only been reported on as a conspiracy theory rather than fact.
The show scored huge ratings and was renewed for an 11th season after largely positive reviews - including from the president.
She also retweeted several messages complaining that ABC's decision was political and wondering why they hadn't axed performers who had said terrible things about Donald Trump.
