In response to her remark, ABC Entertainment canceled the revival of Barr's hit show, Roseanne, which had scored historically high ratings after an over 20-year hiatus.

After her firing, Barr said she was leaving Twitter, but has continued making several statements, including one where she blamed the sleep aid Ambien for the tweets that resulted in the show's cancellation. They do it because we have a white trash racist president.

"Gee, he never called President Donald J. Trump to apologize for the terrible statements made and said about me on ABC", Trump tweeted.

He jabbed on Twitter at Disney chief executive Bob Iger, who apologised to African-American former Obama aide Valerie Jarrett after Barr's Monday night tweet likening her to an ape.

"She gives you the best notes on set", Emma said last month.

"I begged Ben Sherwood at ABC to let me apologize and make amends", Barr wrote in the since-deleted post. She wrote that racist tweet that forced ABC to ax the show.

She also apologized to everyone who lost their job because of her, writing: "Don't feel sorry for me, guys!-I just want to apologize to the hundreds of people, and wonderful writers (all liberal) and talented actors who lost their jobs on my show due to my stupid tweet".

While Roseanne as we know it is officially dead and gone, it does seem as though ABC may consider finding another way in which for the series to move forward.

Reruns on Hulu, Paramount Network, TV Land and CMT have also been pulled from the air and Barr was dropped from her talent agency ICM.

After initially saying she was going to leave Twitter, Roseanne returned after her show was cancelled to tell fans not to defend her.

She confessed: "I begged them not to cancel the show".

The actress was able to find plenty of sympathizers though because she noted multiple retweets of people supporting her through this PR crisis.

"We are all greatly distressed by the disgraceful and unacceptable tweet from Roseanne Barr this morning".

"You throw me under the bus. nice!" she said in a tweet directed at Fishman.

"This is what I'm gonna say, Roseanne, just because you were caught with your trousers down, don't try to drag other people down with you", Goldberg chided.
