KXIP vs KKR Live Score

Roseanne Barr's ex-husband Tom Arnold has claimed his former partner wanted her sitcom to be cancelled, as he weighed in on the tweets which caused her show to be axed by ABC.

Trump is referring to ABC News reporter Brian Ross, who was suspended after making an error in a story previous year when he said Trump had directed former National Security adviser Michael Flynn to make contact with the Russians during the 2016 presidential campaign. But her show drew praise from President Donald Trump, who attributed its popularity in part to his supporters.

Goodman was also asked about ABC's decision to suspend the show's Emmy campaign, a move the actor didn't seem too concerned with.

He continued: "I've read a lot of articles online where people are like 'Hey man, ABC didn't own the show, so of course they didn't have as much skin in the game, so it was easy for them to cancel it".

"I think she is just mean - she's just always ready to say a frightful thing, whatever will hurt the most", the source said.

Barr apologized for the incident and said she would leave twitter, but returned Tuesday night with a series of tweets attacking co-stars Sara Gilbert and Michael Fishman. "I will examine all of my options carefully and get back to U [sic]".

As Nicki Swift previously reported, Barr sparked outrage when she tweeted out that Valerie Jarrett, an African American woman who served as a former White House advisor to President Barack Obama, was what you'd get if the "Muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes" had a baby.

She also blamed the inflammatory post on sleeping pills, saying she had been "ambien tweeting".

Six of Goodman's 11 Emmy nominations between 1988 and 2010 came from his role on Roseanne, so he may have a point.

Hours after the initial tweet, however, ABC Entertainment president Channing Dungey released a statement canceling Roseanne as a result of Barr's statement.

"I am truly sorry for making a bad joke about her politics and her looks", Barr tweeted.

Filmmaker and comic book guru Kevin Smith praised ABC for swiftly responding to Tuesday's Roseanne Barr controversy, but says he would have fired the Roseanne star and kept the revival series' remaining cast. "I think that we have a lot bigger things going on in the country right now". "It just shocked me a bit", she wrote. "And they are about to rue the day they knew me..."

Roseanne took to Twitter to defend herself yesterday, with a spectacularly weak explanation for her behavior.
