What John Goodman thinks about the Roseanne controversy

Drugmaker to Roseanne Barr: ‘Racism is not a known side effect’ of Ambien

Barr also retweeted a Twitter user's response to a claim that "ABC President Channing Dungey had a long conversation via phone with former First Lady Michelle Obama before deciding to cancel the Roseanne show".

"I would rather say nothing than cause more trouble", Goodman told Entertainment Tonight while exiting an auto fix shop in New Orleans.

Barr came under fire shortly after she posted an offensive tweet early Tuesday morning targeting Valerie Jarrett, a former top adviser in the administration of President Barack Obama.

A day after striking a contrite tone for her tweet suggesting Valerie Jarrett was a cross-breed of Planet of the Apes and the Muslim Brotherhood, an Islamist group, the TV personality was in a more defiant mood. "ABC executives thought - and hoped - that Barr would tone down her tweeting and focus on her sitcom".

On his podcast, The Joe Rogan Experience, Joe Rogan shared a similar sentiment on Wednesday, saying Barr had recently confided in him that the show was putting her under major stress, saying, "I need to adjust my meds, I'm not thinking straight". "I've been up there 12 times already" - he actually has had 11 Emmy nominations, including seven from 1989 to 1995 for the original run of "Roseanne" - "and if I don't get one I'm not gonna get one". I will examine all of my options carefully and get back to U'.

Trump administration announces new tariffs on Chinese tech goods amid trade disputes
Office of Trade and Manufacturing Policy Director Peter Navarro on the Trump administration's tariffs and trade talks with China. Last week, Mnuchin said that "we are putting the trade war on hold ".

"I was not surprised that what went down and that the show was cancelled", he said on Wednesday's Anderson Cooper 360. This is incredibly sad and hard for all of us, as we have created a show that we believe in, are proud of, and that audiences love - one that's separate and apart from the opinions and words of one cast member, ' Gilbert also stated.

Many observers have been wondering when President Donald Trump, an active Twitter user who had previously called Barr to congratulate her on the big ratings earned by the "Roseanne" revival, might chime in on the controversy surrounding Barr's tweet and ABC's swift decision to cancel the show. "It just shocked me a bit", she wrote.

And Barr pointed a finger at Wanda Sykes, the show's consulting producer, for ultimately causing the show's demise.

Similarly, when Barr's onscreen son Michael Fishman condemned her behaviour, she wrote back, "You throw me under the bus". I was still wrong 2 dehumanize them-they r not my enemy, harboring hate & anger is my enemy. "I made a mistake I wish I hadn't but...don't defend it please. ty".
