She has continued to tweet her regret about her comment that Obama advisor Valerie Jarrett, who is African American, looked like the "Muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby".

According to one conservative, "ABC President Channing Dungey had a long conversation via phone with former First Lady Michelle Obama before deciding to cancel the Roseanne show".

Following days of heavy backlash for a string of controversial tweets, Roseanne Barr on Thursday said she "begged" ABC to give her a chance to "apologize & make amends". The revival sitcom was axed earlier this week following a racist tweet from Roseanne Barr. How is Brian Ross doing?

But her show drew praise from President Donald Trump, who attributed its popularity in part to his supporters.

"Attempting to also get phone numbers for Jarrett, Michelle and GS to personally apologize to them tho I disagree with their politics", Barr tweeted.
