Network Ten takes Roseanne off air in Australia over racist tweet

Network Ten takes Roseanne off air in Australia over racist tweet

"I am disappointed in her actions to say the least".

Roseanne Barr's TV show has been cancelled after she sparked outrage with a "racist" tweet about an African-American former White House aide.

The star is due to appear on comedian Joe Rogan's podcast on Friday.

"Muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby=vj", Barr wrote in a since-deleted tweet, referring to Jarrett, who is black and was born in Iran.

Spurred on by Roseanne Barr's racist remarks today, CNN host Don Lemon said the actor's comments are just one part of the much larger issue of racism in America - an issue that he believes is getting worse because of President Donald Trump who is "emboldening" bigots and bigotry.

As well as two further apologies to Jarrett, Barr released a statement on Twitter, which read: "I deeply regret my comments from late last night on Twitter".

I give ABC credit for cancelling "Roseanne" - but this wasn't the first time, so why was she given this opportunity in the first place? "Forgive me- my joke was in bad taste".

USA warships 'seriously infringed' on China - Beijing military chiefs
China's Foreign Affairs Minister Wang Yi said the U.S. decision to exclude it from RIMPAC was 'very non-constructive'. President Donald Trump said Wednesday that he was not satisfied with talks aimed at averting a trade war with China.

Barr's tweet on Tuesday may have been the straw that broke the camel's back, but there's a lot to understand about how exactly "Roseanne" came to an end.

"As well as the apology, Roseanne also retweeted messages from fans showing their support for the writer, who had used the hashtag: "#StandWithRoseanne". "I am sure they are going to lose some revenue potential from next season, but the fallout from the comment made this an easy decision, especially when you consider the Disney brand". I am sorry for making a thoughtless joke that does not reflect my values - I love all people and am very sorry. "You know who I blame for this?"

What did her bosses and colleagues say?

"Roseanne Barr's vicious personal attack on former Obama senior adviser Valerie Jarrett came out of nowhere and cost Ms. Barr and the entire staff of her program their jobs".

In March, she tweeted conspiracy theories about the Parkland shooting survivors.

For anyone with a computer, tablet or smartphone, social media platforms are merely an arm's length away. I feel so empowered by @iamwandasykes, Channing Dungey and anyone at ABC standing up for morals and abuse of power.
