Roseanne Barr's ex claims she wanted sitcom to be cancelled

02 Juin 2018

A second season of Roseanne Barr's revived sitcom was canned in the wake of a tweet she made about former President Obama's senior advisor Valerie Jarrett.

On his podcast, The Joe Rogan Experience, Joe Rogan shared a similar sentiment on Wednesday, saying Barr had recently confided in him that the show was putting her under major stress, saying, "I need to adjust my meds, I'm not thinking straight". As they say in the movies: "one down, one to go".

Jarrett revealed that Bob Iger, the head of ABC parent company Disney, telephoned her personally to tell her the network was cancelling the show.

She also urged her critics to be fair, adding: "Please don't compare me2 other people who have said frightful things. 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". "I begged for people's jobs".

I begged for my crews jobs. Will I ever recover from this pain?

The comedian concluded with a tweet apologizing once again for her remark.

"I had an assistant who was a young guy and I needed Roseanne to either look at something or sign something and Roseanne had pretty much barricaded her set from executives coming by because she was paranoid".

The last 24 hours have also been a powerful reminder of the importance of words in everything we do - online and on the air.

She is embracing a discredited conspiracy theory that blamed the cancellation of her show on a shadowy coalition of Twitter users known as the FBR, which is short for "Follow Back Resistance".

She said the long-time, well respected political figure was what you would get if Muslim Brotherhood and Planet of the Apes "had a baby". 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 think I'll b better tomorrow". "The president is pointing to the hypocrisy in the media saying the most awful things about this president and nobody addresses it", she said.

"Let me be clear". The only one left said she was signing off Twitter for a while and she was offering "everyone involved one more apology and prayers".
