Roseanne Barr’s Twitter saga didn’t end with the cancellation of her show Tuesday Early Wednesday morning, she was back at it, first blaming Ambien and defensively comparing ABC’s response to her racist and otherwise offensive tweetstorm to those of other celebrities who have made controversial comments. And President Trump, who has personally congratulated Barr on the initial success of “Roseanne,” finally weighed in on the rapidly unfolding controversy Wednesday. Trump questioned why the head of ABC parent company Disney had called Valerie Jarrett — the target of Barr’s racist comments — to apologize, when he hadn’t received similar treatment.
"Roseanne Barr Lashes out at Co-Stars; Trump Wonders Why He Hasn’t Gotten an Apology from ABC, Too" is from the May 30, 2018 Arts and Entertainment section of The Washington Post. It was written by Emily Heil and narrated by Sam Scholl.
