ABC announced earlier Tuesday that the rebooted "Roseanne" sitcom was canceled after the tweet that referred to former Barack Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett as a product of the Muslim Brotherhood and the "Planet of the Apes". This evening Roseanne was back on Twitter apologizing, saying she's "sorry her tweets cost hundreds of writers and actors their jobs, and that she doesn't want to be defended". She often used social media to share conspiracy theories, including Pizzagate.
The fallout has also included Barr being dropped by her agents. "I apologize to Valerie Jarrett and to all Americans".
The comedian quickly deleted her tweet and apologised but that was not enough to stop the backlash.
One of the few network shows about a working-class family, "Roseanne" attracted considerable attention upon its return when Barr's character supported Trump. - Chairman and CEO of The Walt Disney Co.
One message she re-tweeted on Wednesday falsely accused the Hungary-born Jewish billionaire of collaborating with the Nazis. "Forgive me", she wrote.
In a longer statement issued to Buzzfeed News, Barr again said sorry for the "thoughtless joke" and asked for forgiveness.
Emma Kenney, who plays Darlene's daughter Harris, said "the racist and distasteful comments from Roseanne are inexcusable", adding: "Bullies do not win".
She added: "I'm fine, I'm anxious about all the people out there who don't have a circle of friends and followers coming to their defence".

Japan says it has detected apparent Chinese ship breaking North Korea sanctions
Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe has maintained a hard line against the North, calling for continued sanctions and a maximum-pressure campaign on Pyongyang.
In a reply to one of her fans, she said "I honestly thought she was Jewish and Persian-ignorant of me for sure, but...i did".
Three weeks earlier, "Roseanne" was the toast of ABC's annual presentation of its programming plans to advertisers.
"#Rosanneis who she tells you she is with every comment and tweet". Even for a mid-season debut and a nine-episode run, Roseanne was rewarded with a second season. The firm estimates that the 13 episodes that had been ordered for next season would have brought in as much as $60 million, with more through repeat episodes. Wanda Sykes, who served as a consulting producer on Roseanne, exited the show after Barr's tweet went public.
The cancellation has no clear precedent in television history, said David Bianculli, professor at Rowan University in New Jersey.
The tweet was abhorrent, vile, and came from Roseanne Barr's core.
Writing on Twitter, British actress Minnie Driver, who stars in ABC's Speechless, wrote: "So proud of @ABCNetwork for having the ethical compunction to cancel #Rosanne despite the show's huge numbers. We commend the network and its president for placing the values of diversity, inclusion and respect for humanity above ratings".
Barr got what she deserved, said Shonda Rhimes, creator of hit ABC shows like "Grey's Anatomy" and "Scandal". As I tell my 4 year old, one makes a choice with one's actions. "Roseanne made a choice".
Roseanne Barr is the latest example of that, but unlike other similar cases, there was collateral damage. A racist one. ABC made a choice.
