But Mr. Jones, former President Obama's "green jobs czar" who was forced to resign in 2009 after news broke that he called Republicans "a-holes" and signed a "911 Truth" petition, said "a rank bigot who is a conspiracy theorist" got what was coming to her.
Barr compared a former adviser to president Barack Obama to an ape, prompting the United States network ABC to cancel her recently revived hit sitcom and her Hollywood talent agency to dump her as a client.
And Barr has now been dropped by her agents over the racist tweet. What "leaving Twitter" means is unclear. A few hours after Barr's tweet, Wanda Sykes, a consulting producer on the Roseanne show, tweeted she will not be returning.
In one of the tweets, she wrote, "Muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby=vj".
Other members of the cast, including actor Sara Gilbert said Barr's comments did not reflect the beliefs of the rest of people working on the show.
Long before this controversy, many questioned the wisdom of airing a pro-Trump Roseanne reboot, especially during a time of heightened tensions in the U.S. Ava DuVernay - the Oscar-winning director of A Wrinkle in Time and Selma - made that sentiment clear in her tweet following the cancellation.
"As well as the apology, Roseanne also retweeted messages from fans showing their support for the writer, who had used the hashtag: "#StandWithRoseanne".
The host then showed off a series of clips from Roseanne without the titular lead, instead focusing on her husband, John Goodman's Dan. "I apologize from the bottom of my heart and hope you can find it in your hearts to forgive me". "It's not the first time she's done it", Lemon said.
"Roseanne's Twitter statement is abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values, and we have made a decision to cancel her show".
"I'm fine. I'm anxious about the people out there who don't have a circle of friends and followers who come right to their defense".
Her tweet yesterday about former Obama aide Valerie Jarrett was a lapse too revolting to be ignored. "I am disappointed in her actions to say the least".
The tweet was deleted and the celebrity announced a hiatus from the social media platform. "Don't feel sorry for me, guys!"
"#Rosanne?is who she tells you she is with every comment and tweet".
