Roseanne Barr says she ‘begged’ ABC not to cancel her show

She’s tweeting again.

Roseanne Barr has dominated the news cycle this week after tweeting a racist tirade early Tuesday morning, which quickly led ABC to cancel the reboot of her popular sitcom, Roseanne. Now, Barr has revealed that she “begged” Disney/ABC Television Group President Ben Sherwood not to cancel the show.

“I begged them not to cancel the show. I told them I was willing to do anything & asked 4 help in making things right,” Barr tweeted Thursday. After her show was canceled, she said she tweeted racist remarks about Valerie Jarrett, a top adviser for former President Barack Obama when he was in the White House, while on Ambien. 

Barr also stated Thursday that she begged for the jobs of the crew working on the show. 

“Will I ever recover from this pain? omg,” she wrote.

Barr also admitted that she was “ashamed” that black child actor, Jayden Rey, who plays Mary Conner on the show, would think that she does “not love her” after she tweeted “muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby=vj.”

“It’s the most god awful painful thing,” she wrote.  

While Barr has since apologized to Jarrett, she also offered the world another apology via Twitter.

It should be noted here, that this isn’t even close to the first time Barr has said something offensive, and given her outspoken nature on Twitter, it probably won’t be the last.
