I begged them not to cancel the show.
Filmmaker and comic book guru Kevin Smith praised ABC for swiftly responding to Tuesday's Roseanne Barr controversy, but says he would have fired the Roseanne star and kept the revival series' remaining cast.
Barr, a prominent supporter of President Trump, retweeted an image questioning why some people thinkit's OK to ridicule him as an ape, but not Jarrett.
Roseanne Barr has revealed her biggest regret from her racist tweet is that that co-star Jayden Rey will think she doesn't love her because she is African-American. "I said look, someone has got to tell her that Donald Trump doesn't carry his own phone", he explained.
"When I read her social media in the very beginning, and I saw how she was so into the conspiracy stuff with Donald Trump and so how far gone she was, and the "pizzagate" and Hillary is a pedophile and Obama wasn't born here, she was, you know, a 'birther, ' and how insane that was - I just knew that this would not end well", he added. Maybe I just didn't get the call?' "She is a fucking asshole, but so am I. No one ever stood up to her like I did". Then on Wednesday, she insisted what she said wasn't racist but insensitive, hitting back at critics.
While Goodman didn't address the show, he let fans know they shouldn't worry about him.
"These [are] the four steps in repentence: admitting you were wrong, making restitution, asking forgiveness from those u have hurt & at last, cracking open your heart in deep sorrow and remorse, where tears flow", she continued.
President Donald Trump escalated a grudge against ABC today in the wake of the cancellation of "Roseanne," tweeting at the chief executive of ABC's parent company. Barr went on to apologize for the joke, admitting she "made a mistake". EW said that "Iger apologized and said he would not tolerate those kinds of comments made by Barr, Jarrett said".
Six of Goodman's 11 Emmy nominations between 1988 and 2010 came from his role on Roseanne, so he may have a point.
