Barr tweeted that what she did was unforgiveable and urged supporters not to defend her. "And with that said, I have an idea that I think makes this work for everyone", he explained.

On Tuesday, the chairman of the network's parent company, Disney, said the cancellation "was the right thing" to do, and Barr was dropped by ICM Partners, the talent agency that represented her.

Barr apologized for the tweet, describing it as "a bad joke".

Mega Man 11 launches October 2
Mega Man 11 will be getting a physical and digital release on October 2nd, though the Switch arguably has the best deal of all. The double gear system is fairly straightforward, but it alters the classic Mega Man formula in some pretty big ways.

Barr apologized for the racist comment and announced she was leaving Twitter, but she later returned with a new string of apologies and defenses, including blaming Ambien. However, even if another network would be interested in picking up Roseanne, it doesn't seem likely that the entire cast would be on board to return. Gilbert had called Barr's initial comments "abhorrent", saying they "do not reflect the beliefs of our cast and crew or anyone associated with our show". I am truly sorry for making a bad joke about her politics and her looks.

He went on to stand directly against Barr's tweet, saying he "vehemently" condemned her statements as "reprehensible and intolerable". In response, Barr wrote that she "created the platform for inclusivity", and was surprised Fishman would "throw [her] under the bus".

The racist comment led to an immediate backlash Tuesday with Wanda Sykes, a producer on the recently revived "Roseanne" sitcom quitting.

The risk of flooding is not as significant in Forsyth and Guilford counties, and in areas east and south of the Triad, Adkins said.

As a result of Roseanne Barr' derogatory rant, ABC made the decision to cancel the sitcom "Roseanne" on Tuesday. Barr replied to Fishman's statement on Twitter. She said of the Jarrett tweet, "It was 2 in the morning and I was ambien tweeting".

Well, apparently ABC didn't find her joke amusing and swiftly pulled the plug on the hit series.

Barr's claim of Ambien-tweeting brought out the inner-comedian in a lot of people. She also apologized to everyone who had lost their jobs on the show due to her "stupid tweet". In a statement on Tuesday, Dungey said that the network would not be producing the show's second season.
