While a source told People magazine Barr is "in deep darkness and is very remorseful" for the racially-charged tweet that drew vast backlash and saw U.S. network ABC cancel her Roseanne reboot, she seemed in a defiant mood in her latest posts.

The company's response followed Barr's odd explanation of the early Tuesday Twitter rant that got her show cancelled as a awful Ambien-fueled mistake.

On the end of the series: "It had to happen".

After initially saying she was going to leave Twitter, Roseanne returned after her show was cancelled to tell fans not to defend her.

"Don't feel sorry for me, guys!"

As Roseanne was created by Barr and the characters were conceived by her and Matt Williams, a version of the show with the same characters would still financially benefit Barr. In any other industry, if you go to bat for your friend and join hands with them in a business deal only for them to screw you over that is your loss.

She continued: "Attempting to also get phone numbers for Jarrett, Michelle and GS to personally apologize to them tho I disagree with their politics. And I know so many people who have mixed families".

Israel's Lieberman in Moscow for Syria talks
Assad vowed to claw back areas of Syria held by the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), an alliance of Kurdish militia. The agreement envisages Iranian forces pulling out from the entire area and Syrian rebels there surrendering heavy weapons.

The video came Thursday, the same day Barr posted a long list of tweets, many of them asking for forgiveness.

"I wasn't going to get an Emmy anyway", Goodman said.

Addressing the backlash she received for a racist tweet, she returned to the platform to say: 'Please do not compare me to other people who've said disgusting things.

CBS News reports that the show was quickly pulled from the network after Barr said of Jarrett, the African-American former adviser to Barack Obama, "Muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby=vj". "I know that Tom really regretted the fact that we had such a wonderful writing staff together - a real rare collection of talent - and I know he'd like to continue using it in some fashion if that were possible".

"Roseanne" had returned to United States screens in March after a 21-year hiatus with Barr's character recast as a Trump supporter in a rare depiction of working class life on the United States small screen. Please take a breath and remember that mental health issues are real.

In a now-deleted tweet posted on Thursday, Roseanne Barr expressed remorse over how her actions have hurt Rey. "Roseanne, the viscous [sic] slur at me you retweeted yesterday-if I had the time I'd sue you and drain you of every dime you have".

Roseanne originally ran for nine seasons from 1988 to 1997, and was greenlit in 2017 for a revived 10 season with the original cast.
