Barr also hit back at criticism from her costars on Roseanne, telling Michael Fishman, who played D.J. Conner on the show and started working with Barr when he was just six, 'You throw me under the bus. nice!'
Gregory continued by called Barr "racist and offensive", but added that it is unfair to suggest she is emblematic of all Trump voters.
"Roseanne's Twitter statement is abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values, and we have chose to cancel her show", she told Fox News.
Speaking on an MSNBC town hall program that aired late Tuesday, Jarrett said that she was "fine" and that she was more "worried about all the people out there who don't have a circle of friends and followers who come right to their defense".
Barr tweeted an apology to Jarrett for "making a bad joke about her politics and her looks", and offered several more apologies - including one in which she said she was using the sleep aid when she tweeted about Jarrett.
Even before he was president, Trump had issues with ABC's programming, blasting the network for its popular show Black-ish.
Valerie Jarrett speaks at an event at Hearst Tower on May 9, 2017 in NY.
Jarrett served as senior adviser and assistant to the president for intergovernmental relations and public affairs, but her access to the president allowed her to wield incredible influence on everything from economic policy and Supreme Court appointments to seating arrangements at state dinners. "I blame myself, not Ambien", she tweeted. So much of our national dialogue is reduced to what's said on Twitter.
For me, and for ABC, the racist tweet about Valerie Jarrett crossed a line. "ICM is a top agency - very powerful and very good at its job", said Evan Smith, a professor in the television, radio and film department of Syracuse University's Newhouse School. She responded: "Please leave me alone, thanks". "I created the platform for that inclusivity and you know it.ME", she wrote.
The message, which has since been deleted said "Muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby = vj", referring to Jarrett.
While social media can be a positive tool, she said, "it can also dehumanize because it's distant".
