Roseanne Barr has SLAMMED two co-stars after they spoke out against her following her racist tweets the previous day, which lead to her show's cancellation.
Hours after claiming she was quitting the social media platform, Roseanne Barr returned to Twitter to apologise for her 'bad joke' about Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett.
Michael Fishman, who played D.J. Conner on Roseanne and started working with Barr when he was just six, was the first to feel the wrath Barr after he released a statement criticising her racist tweet, which claimed Jarrett looked like the lovechild of the 'Muslim Brotherhood and Planet of the Apes'.
'I condemn these statements vehemently,' Fishman shared to fans.
'They are reprehensible and intolerable, contradicting my beliefs and outlook on life and society. I have always lived and taught my children to be inclusive. I believe our show strived to embrace different backgrounds and opinions, through open dialogue.'
Barr fired back on Twitter. 'I created the platform for that inclusivity and you know it. ME. You throw me under the bus. nice!', she wrote.
Fishman was not the only Roseanne star to speak out.
Sara Gilbert, who played Roseanne's daughter Darlene, also released a statement following the insensitive tweets.
'Roseanne’s recent comments about Valerie Jarrett, and so much more, are abhorrent and do not reflect the beliefs of our cast and crew or anyone associated with our show. I am disappointed in her actions to say the least,' wrote Gilbert, who was a producer on the reboot and largely responsible for reuniting the cast.
'This is incredibly sad and difficult for all of us, as we’ve created a show that we believe in, are proud of, and that audiences love— one that is separate and apart from the opinions and words of one cast member.'
'Wow! unreal,' replied Barr.
However, Roseanne later Tweeted, 'No, I understand her position and why she said what she said. i forgive her. It just shocked me a bit, but I indeed f***ed up.'
Roseanne has been cancelled effective immediately. Channel 10 also decided to take Roseanne off all it's channels, including TEN and ELEVEN.
