It has been a horrible day for ‘Roseanne’ fans around the world. ABC canceled the hit show ‘Roseanne’ after the lead Roseanne Barr tweeted a very politically incorrect tweet about former Obama official Valerie Jarrett. However, there is a light at the end of the tunnel. After the show was canceled, Barr apologized on Twitter.
“I deeply regret my comments from late last night on Twitter. Above all, I want to apologize to Valerie Jarrett, as well as to ABC and the cast and crew of the Roseanne show. I am sorry for making a thoughtless joke that does not reflect my values – I love all people and am very sorry,” wrote Barr.
“Today my words caused hundreds of hardworking people to lose their jobs. I also sincerely apologize to the audience that has embraced my work for decades. I apologize from the bottom of my heart and hope you can find it in your hearts to forgive me,” wrote Barr.
After her apology, she announced that she is not done for yet. She even has a guest appearance on an interview show this Friday. “Don’t feel sorry for me, guys!!-I just want to apologize to the hundreds of people,and wonderful writers (all liberal) and talented actors who lost their jobs on my show due to my stupid tweet. I will be on Joe Rogan’s podcast friday,” tweeted Barr.
“hey guys, don’t defend me, it’s sweet of you 2 try, but…losing my show is 0 compared 2 being labelled a racist over one tweet-that I regret even more,” she wrote. Do you think another network will pick up Roseanne?
