Netflix Shades 'Roseanne' Over Cancellation Scandal With One Great Suggestion

Barr was resoundingly condemned Tuesday, including from many who helped make her show successful.

"It has been 24 years, so I don't know that I know who Roseanne is", he says.

Trump tweeted that the CEO of ABC's parent company called Valerie Jarrett to say the network wouldn't tolerate Barr's tweet about her. Trump wrote that CEO Bob Iger never call him to apologize for "the terrible statements" that have been said about him on ABC". Showing a flair of their own for tongue-in-cheek comedy, Sanofi, the makers of Ambien, released a tweet saying, to their knowledge, racism wasn't a known side effect of taking the drug.

Disney is the parent company of ABC TV network, which on Tuesday dropped the rebooted '90s sitcom "Roseanne" amid a ferocious online backlash against its star.

"I wasn't gonna get an Emmy anyway", Goodman said.

Unfortunately, the president did not elaborate on which of ABC's "HORRIBLE statements" he's referring to; however, Trump has repeatedly had issues with the network, as is well documented on Twitter.

Entertainment Tonight caught up with Goodman at a New Orleans auto fix shop, where he hesitated to discuss the fallout over Barr's racist tweet this week.

ABC did not immediately respond to a request for comment on Trump's tweets.

In a video obtained by Entertainment Tonight, the 65-year-old actor spoke out for the first time since Roseanne's cancellation, insisting he'd rather stay quiet.

For cast and crew members that did have longer-term contracts, Barr's show-sinking tweet could be deemed, unusual as it sounds, an "act of God".

Barr initially apologized for her Jarrett tweet, dismissing it as just a stupid mistake and lapse in judgment made under the influence of Ambien. She revealed that, after seeing Barr's tweets, she'd called her manager to quit Roseanne, which was exactly when she discovered that the series had already been canceled by the network. "It just shocked me a bit", she wrote.

She later tweeted that people should not defend her.

Before retweeting the conspiracy theory, Barr asked Cornett if the post was true. "They love calling black people monkeys". Joke news site Daily World Update reported a string of false news stories about a revival of the revival, writing that NBC, CBS and Netflix all expressed interest in adding the successful sitcom to their lineup. The White House's position is that Iger should have similarly dialed Trump to apologize for Hill's accusation that the president is a white supremacist.
