"Double Standard!" Trump said in a Twitter post Thursday.

Disney CEO Bob Iger also personally called Valerie Jarrett to apologize and tell her that Disney and ABC in no way condone Barr's comments.

While Roseanne Barr has admitted that her tweet, which compared Valerie Jarrett to a Planet of the Apes character, was inexcusable, she offered a further explanation about it on Twitter. "Today my words caused hundreds of hardworking people to lose their jobs", she said. "As you say, those ordinary examples of racism that happen every single day".

"ABC lost maybe $1 billion from this; this show was grinding out money hand over fist and they lost it all because somebody didn't say, 'Get that phone out of her hand, '" he said.

Similarly, when Barr's onscreen son Michael Fishman condemned her behaviour, she wrote back, "You throw me under the bus".

Following her racist tweet scandal that led to her show being canceled by ABC, Roseanne Barr continues to take to social media to defend herself all the while creating even more controversy.

On Wednesday, May 30, 2018, Entertainment Tonight reported that the actor had finally spoken up about Roseanne Barr's recent controversial tweets and their show's subsequent cancellation.

Now, I feel like people should be looking for Roseanne Barr for that money, but I get it.

Barr came under fire shortly after she posted an offensive tweet early Tuesday morning targeting Valerie Jarrett, a former top adviser in the administration of President Barack Obama. "I've been up there [11] times already, and if I didn't get one I'm not going to get one". "I end by offering everyone involved one more apology and prayers for healing of our divided nation", she said Thursday.

"These [are] the four steps in repentence: admitting you were wrong, making restitution, asking forgiveness from those u have hurt & at last, cracking open your heart in deep sorrow and remorse, where tears flow", she continued.

Roseanne originally ran for nine seasons from 1988 to 1997, and was greenlit in 2017 for a revived 10 season with the original cast. Oh, and Roseanne " s been cancelled, '" Smith said.

Barr's reply? "Please leave me alone, thanks".

And while Barr has lashed out at some of her fellow co-stars who have spoken out about her tweets, she expressed sorrow that Roseanne's cancelation meant Goodman and co-star Laurie Metcalf were out of work. Other members of the "Roseanne" cast haven't been as circumspect as Goodman.
