And the responsibility of using social media - and all of our programs and platforms - with careful thought, decency and consideration.

Amid the furor over her comment Barr told supporters on Twitter: "I'm not a racist, just and idiot".

In one of the tweets that sparked outrage, she wrote, "Muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby=vj".

"I don't know anything about it", he said. "Forgive me-my joke was in bad taste".

"It's a joke", she wrote in response to a CNN reporter.

President Trump has weighed in on the fallout surrounding Roseanne Barr's racist tweet targeting former White House adviser Valerie Jarrett by asking why he never received an apology for unspecified things said about him on the same network.

"Roseanne's Twitter statement is abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values, and we have made a decision to cancel her show", ABC entertainment president Channing Dungey said in a statement to TheWrap on Tuesday.

Following the initial fallout of her racist tweet, Roseanne co-stars Sara Gilbert, who played Darlene and heralded the new iteration of the show to the air, and Michael Fishman, who played DJ, denounced Barr's actions.

"I have to say this about the president we have, and his gaslighting and lying", Arnold continued.

Barr's initial tweet came in response to another Twitter user, who accused Mrs Jarrett of helping to hide purported spying during the Obama administration.

In other Tweets, Barr said that she was exhausted of "being attacked and belittled more than other comedians who have said worse" and asked for people not to boycott ABC, saying that the network has the right to "do what they wish". Trump previously sought an apology from the Disney-owned sports network ESPN, where anchor Jemele Hill labeled the president a "white supremacist" on Twitter.

Comedian Roseanne Barr says she accepts responsibility for a late-night tweet that cost her her job, agent and more Tuesday.

In another deleted tweet, Barr said of the incident that "it was 2 in the morning and I was Ambien tweeting". "And then if her insane tweets came out, she could point to that and say, "But I have taken a step back".

"I just wish ABC had not thrown two of the greatest actors in the world out with me-Laurie and John".
