Did Roseanne want her sitcom to get cancelled?

And yesterday, after vowing to quit Twitter, Roseanne returned to the network tweeting a response to users calling her "racist".

"Then you've heard more than I have", Goodman told "Entertainment Tonight".

He called out the Disney executive for the supposed "Double Standard" where he apologized to Jarrett for a crude and racist comment made about her by someone associated with the company, but not to Trump for the "HORRIBLE statements" made about him on ABC.

CBS News reports that the show was quickly pulled from the network after Barr said of Jarrett, the African-American former adviser to Barack Obama, "Muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby=vj".

Active Shooter video game pulled from stream by distributor
But Valve is a big well-known gaming company, and had been the target of much of the criticism against the game. A Change.org petition calling on Valve to not launch the game garnered more than 150,000 signatures.

Her latest comments are about nine-year-old Rey, who plays Roseanne's adorable grand-daughter on the show.

John Goodman has broken his silence about the cancelation of Roseanne following star Roseanne Barr's tirade on Twitter this week, saying that "everything's fine". Asked if he was OK with ABC canceling the show before it could be considered for Emmy Awards, Goodman shrugged it off.

He added: "ABC lost maybe $1 billion from this; this show was grinding out money hand over fist and they lost it all because somebody didn't say, 'Get that phone out of her hand'". "I've been up there 12 times already and if I don't get one by now, I'm not gonna get one".

Six of Goodman's 11 Emmy nominations between 1988 and 2010 came from his role on Roseanne, so he may have a point.

GDPR - What have we done?
The GDPR will sweep away the EU's outdated privacy legislation and harmonise how data is processed and handled across the region. Google , Facebook , Instagram and WhatsApp have been hit with privacy complaints within hours of GDPR taking effect Friday.

The show would need to be renamed - since you can't have a show called Roseanne without, well, Roseanne - but even if a show were to continue with the existing characters everyone knows and love, there would still be another problem.

She also insinuated she was a victim in this situation, tweeting, "I think I spent the last 24 hours watching the party of inclusion, diversity, understanding, and acceptance, lynch a Jew". "I made a mistake I wish I hadn't.don't defend it please". Michael Fishman, the third Conner child, condemned Barr's remark in a thoughtful statement, to which Barr responded that he "threw [her] under the bus". In comparison, TBS can give Samantha Bee a looser leash, because they get revenue from both subscriber fees and advertising. I was still wrong 2 dehumanize them-they r not my enemy, harboring hate & anger is my enemy.

In the video footage obtained by ET, Goodman said he was not paying much attention to the Barr debacle, claiming that he was not reading or following the news.
