Roseanne Barr: "I Begged Ben Sherwood" To Save Show And Jobs

In a tweet, Trump noted that Robert Iger, who is chief executive of ABC's parent Walt Disney Co., called Valerie Jarrett to say the network wouldn't tolerate Roseanne Barr's racist tweet about the former Obama adviser.

Barr announced that she was leaving Twitter amid the backlash, but by the end of the day, she was back to her usual behavior on social media.

"I apologise to Valerie Jarrett and to all Americans", Barr wrote following the outcry, defending her remarks as a "joke".

In the days since, Barr has tried to backtrack from the tweet by saying it was a joke, making the excuse that she was on Ambien and apologizing for costing the rest of the cast, crew and writers their jobs. "Will I ever recover from this pain? omg", she tweeted later.

Instead of being properly shamed by her actions, Barr's supporters have seemed to bolster her confidence.

She also faulted Iger for not apologizing to Trump after ESPN personality Jemele Hill called Trump a "white supremacist". But ABC said it was cancelling the show, condemning her "abhorrent, repugnant" tweet, which was "inconsistent with our values".

"I think we have to turn it into a teaching moment", Jarrett said "I'm fine". "He said: what were you thinking when you did this?"

Her late-night Twitter spree blamed her racist tweet on her use of the prescription drug Ambien, which is typically used to treat insomnia. However, differing from his similar Wednesday tweet demanding an apology, the president seemingly mentioned Roseanne fans.

"If it hadn't happened yesterday, this season would have been so very bad for everyone every day because she would have felt like she was [being] taken advantage [of], just like when I left the show". Both Barr and her TV character, Roseanne Conner, voiced support for Trump.

"I'm not a racist, I never was & I never will be", she also wrote.
