Here’s how Sarah Sanders defended Trump slamming ABC after Roseanne Barr’s tweet

Ambien Maker Sanofi to Roseanne Barr: No, Our Sleeping Pill Doesn't Cause Racism

Of course, Sanofi's broader point is that the possibility of those side effects doesn't excuse Barr's tweet, which compared former Obama administration official Valerie Jarrett to the Islamic group Muslim Brotherhood and Planet of the Apes.

What ABC may miss out on most in Roseanne'sabsence though, are advertising dollars. He was ABC's top programming executive during the first run of "Roseanne" in the 1990s. She apologized to those who had lost their jobs because of her action, but also condemned cast members who threw her under the bus, in her words.

Barr also criticized her co-stars overnight, including Michael Fishman, who played her youngest child, D.J., on her hit show "Roseanne" and its revival, for speaking out against her.

Barr originally said she did something "unforgivable", "egregious" and "indefensible", before suggesting the tweets were a result of taking sleeping pills.

However, Roseanne conceded that there was no defence for her inflammatory tweet and has offered an apology to Jarrett.

He left Russian Federation in February 2017, saying he was receiving threats and concerned he might be jailed. It not immediately clear whether Babchenko's wife and friend were aware of the security operation.

"Roseanne's Twitter statement is abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values, and we have chose to cancel her show", ABC entertainment president Channing Dungey said in a statement to TheWrap on Tuesday. While asking not to be defended, she retweeted comments from supporters that attacked ABC and complained that conservatives are tweeted more harshly than liberals for their behavior.

"He wanted me to know before he made it public that he was canceling the show", Jarrett said in an interview on MSNBC.

In 1990, at a Cincinnati Red's game, Barr, who would become the Queen of Trump TV, purposely sang the National Anthem out of key while grabbing her crotch and spitting. The network had previously asked her to tone down her controversial statements on social media. Yesterday, Iger tweeted about ABC entertainment president Channing Dungey's move to cancel "Roseanne". The CEO, who has renewed his contract with Disney through December 2021, has acknowledged he considered running for president. There may be a decision on what's next for the key timeslot "by week's end", the rep said. "I suspected there might not be any coming back from it", Caplan said, adding that the racist tweet stopped everyone in their tracks and no one could work. Ancier said ABC probably had a plan in place for that eventuality, given how quickly the show was erased from network web sites.

"I don't understand it to be anything other than free speech", said host Harris Faulkner.
