Roseanne Barr's ex claims she wanted sitcom to be cancelled

Early Thursday, Trump again addressed Disney chairman and CEO Bob Iger in a tweet, demanding an apology for the perceived slights against him from the network. This was a surprise because "Roseanne", the revival, was one of the highest-rated shows of the TV season just behind "The Big Bang Theory" in total viewers.

"Iger, where is my call of apology?" No, not all of them - who has that kind of time? - but at least to phone three people she attacked leading up to ABC canceling her sitcom.

He specifically complained about an erroneous report previous year by ABC investigative reporter Brian Ross, saying: "He tanked the market with an ABC lie, yet no apology".

The president was referring to ABC News reporter Brian Ross, who erroneously reported late a year ago that Trump had asked Michael Flynn to make contact with the Russians during the 2016 presidential campaign.

ABC was widely criticized for initially clarifying and not correcting the report.

Iger and Trump has previously been at odds.

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.

Many Barr supporters came out in support of the series, calling the network's action hypocritical after allowing The View talk show host Joy Behar, as well as other hosts, to stay on the air after making negative statements about President Donald Trump. "I BLAME MYSELF OK? it's just an explanation not an excuse, Ok, bully?"

Barr was sacked after she sent a series of racist tweets Tuesday about Valerie Jarrett, a former aide to President Barack Obama.

"I'm so sick over this - they will never have better character actors on their network", she said when discussing John and Laurie.

Comedian and actor Kumail Nanjiani said he is "glad Roseanne is cancelled".

Trump, it seemed, was one of those viewers.

Her revived sitcom's premiere in March pulled in more than 25 million people, with delayed viewing counted in.

Barr reminded that the division between Roseanne Conner and sister Jackie over Rosie's vote for Trump was an accurate reflection of real-life families torn up over politics.

"I am going to tell you the truth, she wanted it to happen, if you saw how her tweets escalated this weekend", he claimed.
