"Gee, [Disney CEO] Bob Iger never called President Donald J. Trump to apologize for the terrible statements made and said about me on ABC", Trump tweeted.

In another tweet, Barr told her followers, "Guys I did something unforgiveable so do not defend me". Trump tweeted Wednesday morning.

Trump, who reveled in the success of "Roseanne" after Barr's character in the show came out as a supporter of his presidency, made no mention of the firing in a campaign-style rally in Tennessee on Tuesday evening.

U.S. President Donald Trump jumped into the uproar over comedian Roseanne Barr's racist tweet, complaining on Wednesday the Walt Disney Co executive who apologized for her comments had turned a deaf ear to criticism of Trump by the Disney-owned ABC network.

Wanda Sykes, a contributing producer and writer for the show, announced via Twitter that she was quitting the show following Barr's tweet, and Emma Kenney, the 18-year-old actress who played Harris on the show, also revealed that she had meant to announce her resignation after reading Barr's words, only to be told by her manager that the show had already been canceled.

He didn't say anything critical of Roseanne Barr's racist and conspiratorial tweets - the comments that got her fired on Tuesday.

She singled out Wanda Sykes, the show's consulting producer, who had announced she would not return for season two.


After deleting the racist tweet that started this whole thing and apologising, Roseanne since claimed her comments were influenced by her use of the prescription sleeping drug Ambien.

She also lashed out at co-stars Michael Fishman and Sara Gilbert. "ME", Barr wrote. "You throw me under the bus. nice!" Yes, I have had odd ambien experiences on tweeting late at night-like many other ppl do.

"One stupid joke in a lifetime of fighting 4 civil rights 4 all minorities, against networks, studios, at the expense of my nervous system/family/wealth will NEVER b taken from me", the tweet read.

She zig-zagged between apologizing for her foul Twitter behavior and retweeting memes that made her apology sound insincere. "I am truly sorry for making a bad joke about her politics and her looks". It was egregious indefensible.

"He wanted me to know before he made it public that he was canceling the show", Jarrett said in an interview on MSNBC. "I wish I hadn't".

The show scored huge ratings and was renewed for an 11th season after largely positive reviews - including from the president.

"The entertainment world has never seen anything like this before", Brian Stelter, host of CNN's "Reliable Sources", told Inside Edition.
