'Don't feel sorry for me, guys': Roseanne Barr is back on Twitter

'Don't feel sorry for me, guys': Roseanne Barr is back on Twitter

Roseanne star Michael Fishman is among the cast members sharing their reaction to star Roseanne Barr's racist tweet about former Barack Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett, and the ABC show's subsequent cancellation.

In the post-firing tweet, Barr apologised to "all the wonderful writers (all liberal) and talented actors who lost jobs on my show due to my stupid tweet". Barr also stated that she'll be on Joe Rogan's podcast on Friday.

Barr, an outspoken supporter of President Trump, went on to tweet an apology following an online backlash accusing her of racism.

No matter. Not long after the lame apology, the folks at ABC - the network that was making stacks of money off Barr's reboot of the old sitcom "Roseanne" - cancelled her show.

'I apologise. I am now leaving Twitter'.

But with ABC and Hulu parting ways, and reruns of the show also being cancelled on Paramount Network, TV Land and CMT, it's likely she will lose money fast.

"I apologize from the bottom of my heart and hope you can find it in your hearts to forgive me".

Roseanne Barr stands to lose a great deal of her fortune after her revived show was canned by ABC.

Users commented that the tweet seemed racist. "I was personally horrified and saddened by the comments and in no way do they reflect the values of the people who worked so hard to make this the iconic show that it is". "I am sure they are going to lose some revenue potential from next season, but the fallout from the comment made this an easy decision, especially when you consider the Disney brand".

She also tweeted that she was quitting the social media platform, writing: "I apologize [sic]".

"Roseanne's Twitter statement is abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values, and we have chose to cancel her show", ABC president Channing Dungey said in a statement issued Tuesday.

She wrote: "Don't feel sorry for me, guys!"

"I'm fine. I'm anxious about the people out there who don't have a circle of friends and followers who come right to their defense".

Several minutes prior to the post, she shared a similar sentiment regarding her desire for fans not to stick up for her, despite the fact that she appreciates their efforts.

Barr was responding to a comment about Valerie Jarrett, a top former aide to President Obama.
