Valerie Jarrett responds to Roseanne's racist Twitter rant: 'A teaching moment'

Valerie Jarrett responds to Roseanne's racist Twitter rant: 'A teaching moment'

ABC Entertainment's president said the network has chose to cancel the reboot of her show.

As Barr's fans know, the drama escalated quickly after she made offensive comments on Twitter about Valerie Jarrett, a former aide to President Barack Obama who is of African American descent.

The Muslim Brotherhood is an Islamist organisation and Planet of the Apes is a movie in which intelligent apes battle humans for control.

Reiterating she was sorry for her racist tweet, Barr said she would continue to defend herself and "handle my sadness the way I want to". In that instance, Dungey firmly said she stood behind the "Roseanne" writers.

"He's just happy for me", Barr said in March about her call with the president. "I'm fine. I'm anxious about all the people out there who don't have a circle of friends and followers who come right to their defense".

Korean Spy Chief Called 'Man Who Whispers in Kim Jong Un's Ear'
South Korean media earlier reported that Kim Yong-chol's name was on the passenger list for a fight Wednesday from Beijing to NY . Trump did not rule out an incremental approach that would provide incentives along the way to the North.

In addition to ABC's canceling of Roseanne, Barr's talent agency, ICM Partners dropped her as a client.

Barr wasn't the only Roseanne actor pulling in $250,000 an episode during the successful revival - Variety reported that John Goodman, who plays Dan Conner, also made $250,000 an episode. Another cable network, Laff, also said it was removing reruns of the show.

The original series ran from October 1988 to May of 1997 before the reboot premiered earlier this year. A few hours after Barr's tweet, Wanda Sykes, a consulting producer on the Roseanne show, tweeted she will not be returning.

The nine-episode reboot drew massive ratings and was the season's top scripted show on broadcast television.

Another pointed out that the ape comparisons by Roseanne and Maher have different meanings, tweeting "Roseanne's ape comment is racist because of longterm established racist tropes tying POC to apes". Markets were down sharply overall on concerns about political instability in Italy.

Bethesda Teases ‘Fallout’ News With Hours Long Livestream
Bethesda recently announced a new upcoming title, Rage 2 which was unintentionally leaked by Walmart a few weeks ago. It is one of the fastest selling Fallout game in the series and it is now available for the PS4, Xbox One and PC.

Trump also did not answer shouted questions from The Post about the show's demise when he left the White House for Nashville, where he was to appear at a campaign rally. That's not what he's spending his time on. "Our government is only going to be as good as we make it". "[They] do not reflect the beliefs of our cast and crew or anyone associated with our show", she said.

Added Bernhard: "I don't understand how anybody who is as smart as Roseanne is can have gone this deep over the line".

The announcement sent ripples through the entire industry, with Robert Iger, chairman and CEO of the Walt Disney Company, which owns ABC, quoting the official statement that called Barr's tweet "abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values".

Valerie Jarrett wants people to learn from Roseanne Barr's mistake.

Tuesday's furore echoed a 2013 incident in which Barr, in a subsequently deleted tweet, said black former Obama administration official Susan Rice "is a man with big swinging ape balls".
