The TV star apologised for the offensive tweet about Valerie Jarrett, which prompted U.S. network ABC to cancel Barr's show Roseanne and networks airing reruns to pull them from the schedules. After co-stars Sara Gilbert and Michael Fishman tweeted their own condemnation of the tweets, Roseanne fired back.

"I am hurt, embarrassed, and disappointed".

Barr's tweet and retweets continued on through the evening, a strong indication that she doesn't plan to leave Twitter after all.

Disney's CEO added, "There was only one thing to do here and that was the right thing". "I also sincerely apologize to the audience that has embraced my work for decades".

What kind of person would torch all of that by publishing a racist single tweet?

However, despite telling her followers not to stick up for her, she has also been retweeting dozens of posts in her defence, as well as suggesting hypocrisy on the part of ABC.

Barr is a noted fan of Trump - as is her sitcom character - and has made many sarcastic comments about former president Obama and presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. "I am disappointed in her actions to say the least". "I'm anxious about the people out there who don't have a circle of friends and followers who come right to their defense".

"We applaud ABC for taking a stand against racism by cancelling Roseanne. Dungey for placing the values of diversity, inclusion and respect for humanity above ratings", Mr Johnson said.

In a second statement she said: "Today my words caused hundreds of hardworking people to lose their jobs".

Former Obama administration official Valerie Jarrett said Roseanne Barr's racist sentiments about her, posted to Twitter on Tuesday, should be used as a "teaching moment".

She also expressed sympathy for her castmates and crewmembers on the show, who will be out of a sizeable paycheck due to the cancellation of the show and its multiple syndication deals.

"But honestly she got what she deserved".

"It's not surprising that Disney made the decision; they had no choice", Brad Adgate, an independent media consultant, told FOX Business.

Emmy-winning comedian and Roseanne consulting producer Wanda Sykes was the first prominent figure associated with the show to cut ranks, quitting hours after Barr's comments. Was it really that savvy for ABC to further enrich and empower a celebrity whose well-documented racist and transphobic beliefs only serve to worsen the pain and vulnerability felt by America's truly marginalized communities?
