Tweeting can be harmful to your well-being.

Barr's ex-husband and former Roseanne writer, Tom Arnold, told The Hollywood Reporter on Wednesday he believes Barr self-sabotaged, but he tried to intervene before it happened.

There is only one person responsible for the cancellation of "Roseanne", and that is the star whose name is on the sitcom. "The more I have the more my words will have weight", she tweeted.

Emma Kenney revealed that she repeatedly told Goodman, "Hi, I'm Emma", but the 65-year-old actor did not hear her.

'I begged Ben Sherwood at ABC 2 let me apologize & make amends. It's a familiar story in show business.

Co-host Meghan McCain also jumped in to defend Goldberg, saying that while she fully defends "free speech" she acknowledges that corporations have the right to set acceptability guidelines. Racism is a sickness that afflicts the mind and soul.


Barr had the plug pulled on her hit rebooted sitcom after she attacked former President Obama White House adviser Valerie Jarrett in a since deleted tweet alleging connections to the Muslim Brotherhood and mentioning Planet of the Apes.

Asked if that was a problem in her own family, Barr said, "We had some pro-Hillarys and some pro-Trump, and there was a lot of fightin'". She complained that she is "tired of being smeared-over a stupid mistake erasing 30 yrs of activism".

In addition to her remark about Jarrett, Barr is also being criticized over her recent attacks on both Chelsea Clinton and billionaire George Soros, who is a prominent donor to Democratic campaigns.

Barr apologized but then followed it up by repeating another conspiracy theory - that Soros and his father worked with Nazis during World War II (a rumor that has been debunked and that Soros denounced again yesterday). Barr responded to Gilbert: "Wow! unreal". I will handle my sadness the way I want to.

On Tuesday, Barr apologised to Mrs Jarrett and pledged to give up Twitter.

That realization must be hard to deal with, but tweeting isn't the way to cope. "Just wish u could have called me personally 2 talk rather than do it in a public arena".
