Donald Trump wants an apology from Disney execs because they cancelled 'Roseanne'

Tom Arnold, actor and ex-husband of Roseanne Barr, said Wednesday he was not surprised by the cancellation of ABC's hit sitcom "Roseanne" after the show's star went on a racist Twitter rant.

On Tuesday, Barr took to Twitter to compare former Obama administration official Valerie Jarrett to an ape, resulting in Channing Dungey, the first African-American president of ABC Entertainment, pulling the plug on her show.

Trump is referring to ABC News reporter Brian Ross, who was suspended after making an error in a story past year when he said Trump had directed former National Security adviser Michael Flynn to make contact with the Russians during the 2016 presidential campaign. She previously apologized to the "wonderful writers (all liberal) and talented actors who lost their jobs on my show due to my stupid tweet" and expressed her regret over John Goodman and Laurie Metcalf losing their jobs too.

As Roseanne was created by Barr and the characters were conceived by her and Matt Williams, a version of the show with the same characters would still financially benefit Barr.

Just as he did on Memorial Day, Trump tweeted a statement making Barr's firing all about himself. Asked if he was OK with ABC canceling the show before it could be considered for Emmy Awards, Goodman shrugged it off. Maybe I just didn't get the call?'

Maryland's Ellicott City inundated by flash floods; crews conduct water rescues
Howard County Police Chief Gary Gardner says witnesses saw the man go under the water Sunday evening, and he did not surface. Aside from the Patapsco River, there are four other smaller waterways running through and around Ellicott City.

In the clip, both Roseanne and Trump praised Moore's 1989 documentary Roger and Me, about the downfall of Flint, Michigan following General Motors' closing of several plants in the company town. "I've been up there [11] times already, and if I didn't get one I'm not going to get one". How do you feel about the cast and crew of Roseanne being entitled to a hefty payday in spite of everything?

She continued: "Attempting to also get phone numbers for Jarrett, Michelle and GS to personally apologize to them tho I disagree with their politics".

This is his second tweet on the controversy surrounding Barr. She also sent a politically charged tweet linking Chelsea Clinton to Soros. Would they have cancelled it if they owned the show and dot dot dot?' You can make a bunch of kind of caveats but at the end of the day, something bad happened, and then the network reacted.

And Barr pointed a finger at Wanda Sykes, the show's consulting producer, for ultimately causing the show's demise.

"Guys I did something unforgivable so do not defend me", Barr wrote. Please take a breath and remember that mental health issues are real.
