Roseanne Barr said she begged Ben Sherwood, president of the Disney-ABC Television Group, to let her apologize and save the show along with the jobs of those who worked on it.

On Tuesday, Barr took to Twitter to compare former Obama administration official Valerie Jarrett to an ape, resulting in Channing Dungey, the first African-American president of ABC Entertainment, pulling the plug on her show.

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders told reporters Wednesday that "no one is defending" Barr's remarks and called them "inappropriate", but she also excoriated the media for what she said was unfair treatment of the Trump administration. "I mistakenly thought she was white", she wrote, a day after she said, "i thought she was saudi [sic]".

In a video obtained by Entertainment Tonight, Goodman, whose character is the husband of Barr's Roseanne, steered clear of commenting on Barr's racist tweet or ABC's decision to cancel the show, which was just starting preparations for Season 2. "I forgive her. It just shocked me a bit". Shortly thereafter, her agency, ICM Partners, dropped Barr as a client, and Viacom networks pulled reruns of her show off the air. I told them I was willing to do anything & asked 4 help in making things right. She couldn't believe they'd call her out like that on such a public platform, but now after processing everything that has happened, she's forgiving them for doing so.

Pulled off air over a racist tweet, United States sitcom star Roseanne Barr has blamed her outburst on a sleeping pill - prompting a swift retort on Wednesday from pharma giant Sanofi which stated, deadpan, that its drugs do not cause racism.

Roseanne continued tweeting: "He said: what were you thinking when you did this?"

"She's known Trump for 30 years like I have", he said. I begged 4 ppls jobs, ' she tweeted. "This is a double standard that the president is speaking about".

"I condemn these statements vehemently", 36-year-old Fishman, who played son D.J., tweeted.

The tweets followed a series of others, in which Barr spoke of God and religion, and appeared to specifically want to make amends to a few individuals who were the focus of her provocative tweets.
