"Double Standard!" Trump said in a Twitter post Thursday.
"We are seeing so much more now because of social media and because people have camera phones, but that should not be the only impetus for change and the reason why we're creating change, so whether it be training, whether it be accountability, whether it be a broader aspect in terms of putting resources into different initiatives, that's how we move forward", he continued.
However, Roseanne conceded that there was no defence for her inflammatory tweet and has offered an apology to Jarrett.
Shortly after, Disney CEO Bob Iger responded to the decision, saying there was "only one thing" to do in the situation and calling the cancellation "the right thing". A number of other baseless claims about the hit sitcom, mostly peddled by websites attempting to deliberately troll online audiences, also appeared online. Ross was suspended and the network issued a clarification on ABC World News Tonight. That's what we say in show business.
But the comedian was back on the platform soon after, posting: "I'm exhausted of being attacked and belittled more than other comedians who have said worse". "Liberals were dropping like flies anyway". Just before he gets in the auto, however, John gives his take on the recent controversy.
A spokeswoman for Sanofi, the pharmaceutical company that makes Ambien, said in response to Barr's tweets about taking the sedative: "While all pharmaceutical treatments have side effects, racism is not a known side effect of any Sanofi medication". Sara Gilbert, who starred in the original and later starred and executive produced the revival, said Roseanne's views don't represent the cast and crew. It's a meme that she and thousands of her alt-right fans do. She also grabbed her crotch during the performance.
She later apologized for what she called a "joke".
On Wednesday, she said on Twitter she did not know Jarrett was black.
President Donald Trump escalated a grudge against ABC today in the wake of the cancellation of "Roseanne," tweeting at the chief executive of ABC's parent company. I will examine all of my options carefully and get back to U'.
A knowledgeable ABC insider tells EW that, yes, it was that specific tweet - that if the actress had never done anything remotely like that before, then perhaps things might have gone differently, but that specific Jarrett tweet was so over the line that it left the network no choice.
