The day after ABC pulled the plug on her No. 1 show over a racist tweet, Roseanne Barr returned to Twitter with a vengeance.

In footage obtained by ET, Goodman addressed the situation, saying he would "rather say nothing than to cause more trouble", adding that "everything's fine".

Barr's comment, which has now been deleted, was sent in response to a tweet that accused Jarrett, an African American, of helping "hide" misdeeds for the Obama administration.

"Attempting to also get phone numbers for Jarrett, Michelle and GS to personally apologize to them tho I disagree with their politics", Barr tweeted. "Nice!" Barr, however, was much nicer to Goodman and actress Laurie Metcalf, who played her sister on the show.

Then 25 minutes after the initial tweet, Barr followed up with: "He said: what were you thinking when you did this?"

According to one conservative, "ABC President Channing Dungey had a long conversation via phone with former First Lady Michelle Obama before deciding to cancel the Roseanne show".

Kasich told host Kate Bolduan that he "couldn't believe" Barr's tweet about former White House adviser Valerie Jarrett, in which Barr compared her to a cross between the Islamist organization the Muslim Brotherhood and the movie "Planet of the Apes".

In an interview with CNN, Arnold said: "I figured someone would take her phone away or monitor that, because it's risky when you have that much (advertising) money on a show", Arnold said. "I'm so sick over this-they will never have better character actors on their network".

Caputo is the chief marketing officer for the start-up and thinks the time is right to bring the sitcom on board given that the show got the ax from ABC because of Barr's racist comments. 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. "It was 2 in the morning and I was ambien tweeting-it was memorial day too-i went 2 far & do not want it defended-it was egregious Indefensible".

Michael Fishman, who played DJ, called Barr's tweet "reprehensible and intolerable" and "truly offensive" and said: 'We must stand up against bias, hatred, bigotry and ignorance'. "I am exhausted of being smeared-over a stupid mistake erasing 30 yrs of activism".
