Roseanne Barr, the disgraced comedienne, wants to tell the world something important: she's not a racist.

(I'd) "rather say nothing than to cause more trouble", he says in the video footage.

The US network on Tuesday canceled hit sitcom "Roseanne", after star Barr fired off a racist tweet against former White House advisor Valerie Jarrett, who was one of Barack Obama's closest aides.

Jarrett revealed that Bob Iger, the head of ABC parent company Disney, telephoned her personally to tell her the network was cancelling the show.

Although Barr said she was leaving Twitter, she returned hours later, posting more than 100 times.

She cited Ambien again in a later tweet, saying, "Not giving excuses for what I did (tweeted) but I've done weird stuff while on ambien - cracked eggs on the wall at 2am etc". She also lashed out at her former co-stars who had spoken out.

Sara Gilbert, who played Roseanne's onscreen daughter Darlene, wrote that Barr's comments about Jarrett were "abhorrent" and "do not reflect the beliefs of our cast and crew or anyone associated with our show".

"Her tweets kept coming Wednesday morning, touching on everything from religion ("I'm a Jew making fun of Hitler, bigot", she defensively responded to a user who shared a photo of her from 2009, when she was slammed for posing as Adolf Hitler for a satirical magazine) to backing off on fully blaming the Ambien that she said she had taken".

Further, in Kolkata, petrol price , now inching towards a four year high, was sold at Rs 80.61, against 80.47 per litre on Friday. Diesel prices on the other hand, were hiked by 44 paise to Rs 73.64 per litre in Mumbai.

Barr wrote back, "Wow! unreal".

"I'm not a racist, I never was & I never will be", Barr tweeted Wednesday, attempting to defend herself against an onslaught of criticism.

"Hear me out, just because Roseanne is gone, it doesn't mean the whole show has to go. I tweeted a lot to watch out because I could see it coming". "I believe our show strived to embrace different backgrounds and opinions, through open dialogue".

She apologized to those who had lost their jobs because of her action, including Goodman, but also condemned cast members who threw her under the bus, in her words. That is why yesterday was so out of character with the last 30 years. That's partly why Barr attacked her. Barr frequently uses her Twitter account to deride Democrats. He said he "knew it would not end well". "I don't read it".

In response to Trump's hypothesis that he "maybe. just didn't get the call" from Iger, late-night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel pulled the ultimate trump card, writing, "Maybe you were out playing golf?"

He said he hoped "Roseanne seeks the help she so clearly needs".

"I've been up there [11] times already, and if I didn't get one I'm not gonna get one". Goodman has been nominated for 11 Emmys, six of which were for "Roseanne", according to ET. He won an Emmy in 2007 for Outstanding Guest Actor in a Drama Series for "Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip".
