Sources reportedly told TMZ that "the powers that be at ABC are exploring the possibility of re-branding the show and focusing on the character Darlene instead of Roseanne". The message comes just days after Barr sent a racist tweet saying, "Muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby=vj" in reference to Jarrett.
Barr, on her end, hasn't stopped tweeting about the scandal.
"This is incredibly sad and hard for all of us, as we've created a show that we believe in, are proud of, and that audiences love- one that is separate and apart from the opinions and words of one cast member".
Recent reports say that Roseanne Barr contacted the head of ABC pleading and begging for them to keep her show on the air, but it was to no avail.
It's a shame that so many careers were negatively affected by Barr's racism; however, as previously reported, those involved with the show are attempting to revive it without its titular star. She says "You see your culture labeled as fads or appropriated by others". I'd worked doing publicity4 them 4free for weeks, travelling, thru bronchitis.
The late-night host continued: "But it's also not a mystery to me how a person with a mental illness can be taken in by a party that has lost its mind".
"The saddest part of all is 4 Jayden Rey on the show whom I grew 2 love so much & am so ashamed of myself that she would ever think I do not love her bc she is African American".
