Valerie Jarrett Says Roseanne Tweet ‘a Teaching Moment’

Roseanne quits Twitter after epic racist anti Semitic meltdown

As Barr's fans know, the drama escalated quickly after she made offensive comments on Twitter about Valerie Jarrett, a former aide to President Barack Obama who is of African American descent.

Barr stars in the ABC revival of her sitcom, which had been renewed for next season.

Barr posted the comment in response to a tweet alleging that Jarrett helped "hide" various Obama-era secrets.

After sharing the statement Tuesday from Disney-owned ABC on the show's cancellation over a racist tweet from Roseanne Barr, Iger tweeted, "There was only one thing to do here and that was the right thing". That was a reference to a Wikileaks claim that the Central Intelligence Agency during Obama's term spied on candidates for the French election. "I'm fine", Jarrett said during a town hall on "everyday racism", hosted by MSNBC Tuesday night.

"I'm fine, I'm anxious about all the people out there who don't have a circle of friends and followers coming to their defense", she told MSNBC. In a subsequent tweet, Barr said it was a joke. Another cable network, Laff, also said it was removing reruns of the show. It ranks as one of the most-watched shows since its return in March, according to Nielsen data. The 10th season comprised of nine episodes and finished airing last week (May 22). Barr did delete the tweet. "All of us should be working together and talking to people of different views", she said. That's not what's he's spending his time on.

"I think we have to turn it into a teaching moment", she continued.

Some on the far right criticized the cancellation as political correctness, but the broad reaction was support for ABC's decision.

Leading the charge was one of the canceled show's producers and stars, Sara Gilbert, who called the original tweet "abhorrent", adding that it didn't reflect the beliefs of the cast or crew.

"I'm humbled by the great things that people have said", Ms. Dungey told The Los Angeles Times in 2016 when she replaced Paul Lee as ABC's chief.

CNN's Don Lemon tonight went off on both Roseanne Barr and President Trump over the racist comments from the former.
