Meanwhile, Roseanne and Trump supporters tried to compare Barr's show's cancellation to Bill Maher's comparison of the president to an orangutan. It was a joke in awful taste; even so, the cancellation of her highly rated show seems an incredibly harsh response, especially when one considers that Disney employs people who have said much, much worse things.
So for me, it is a kind of poetic justice that two black women made swift moves to pull the plug not only on their association with Roseanne but the show itself.
Other conservatives have defended Barr by either downplaying the racist nature of her remarks or claiming the revival of her sitcom, "Roseanne", was axed because of political correctness.
'The same ABC who hired her after years of her posting other tweets saying Hillary was running a child sex abuse ring out of a pizza restaurant in DC, that the Clintons had murdered people, and anyone who criticized Benjamin Netanyahu was a Nazi, ' Moore wrote.
The drug maker Sanofi took to social media to say that "while all pharmaceutical treatments have side effects, racism is not a known side effect of any Sanofi medication". And what if you support Barr, and her right to free speech; where can your voices and opinions be heard?
The Oscar-winning documentarian shared a video on his Facebook and Twitter profiles showing him as a guest alongside Trump on The Roseanne Show, a short-lived talk show from the late 90s. "I am disappointed in her actions to say the least".
Jarrett, who said she was "fine" after the slur, urged in an MSNBC special Tuesday about racism that the incident become a teaching moment. "I wish there was some creative way that she could have gone away - the character, to rehab - and they have such strong actors and they could have gone on and tell the important stories of middle America that need to be told, because nobody else is telling" them.
Jarrett, 61, said on Tuesday that Disney Chief Executive Bob Iger called her before ABC announced the show's cancellation. Disney, of course, owns ABC. John McCain (R-Ariz.), also took President Donald Trump and his administration to task.
ABC's reboot of "Roseanne" garnered an average of 18.1 million viewers, according to The Hill.
"We can't predict whether there will be lawsuits or not", Dougherty said, "but I don't think there will be successful lawsuits".
"It's terrific, I tell you, I love what he did", Trump then tells Moore of his film.
