"I would rather say nothing than cause more trouble", Goodman told Entertainment Tonight while exiting an auto fix shop in New Orleans.

There has been a ton of reactions to United States network ABC's decision to cancel its popular sitcom Roseanne after its star, Roseanne Barr, tweeted a racist comment about former Barack Obama staffer Valerie Jarrett.

The fallout started after the comedian went off on a freaky Twitter rant attacking people including Barack Obama's former senior adviser Valerie Jarrett, who is African-American.

Barr apologized for her tweet, saying she had made a bad joke and that she has been a longtime champion of civil rights. But she has continued to retweet her supporters who have defended her comments.

Russian servicemen killed in Syria after shelling carried out by militants
According to official numbers 92 russian military personnel have died in Syria since Moscow's intervention in the conflict. Some of those Russian nationals were government troops, but not all of them", said Observatory head Rami Abdel Rahman.

On Wednesday, May 30, 2018, Entertainment Tonight reported that the actor had finally spoken up about Roseanne Barr's recent controversial tweets and their show's subsequent cancellation.

Jarrett revealed that Bob Iger, the head of ABC parent company Disney, telephoned her personally to tell her the network was cancelling the show. Maybe I just didn't get the call?'

In a since-deleted overnight tweet, Barr blamed a dose of Ambien for the incendiary tweet in which she likened Valerie Jarrett, an African American former White House aide, to an ape. Jarrett said Iger called her on Tuesday before announcing that ABC, which is owned by Disney, was pulling the plug on the show. I will examine all of my options carefully and get back to U'. How do you feel about the cast and crew of Roseanne being entitled to a hefty payday in spite of everything?

She also sent a message directly to Jarret, offering her apology.

Ottawa Buying Trans Mountain Pipeline Assets for $4.5 billion

Filmmaker and comic book guru Kevin Smith praised ABC for swiftly responding to Tuesday's Roseanne Barr controversy, but says he would have fired the Roseanne star and kept the revival series' remaining cast.

Michael Fishman, who played DJ, called Barr's tweet "reprehensible and intolerable" and "truly offensive" and said: 'We must stand up against bias, hatred, bigotry and ignorance'. "I'm so sick over this-they will never have better character actors on their network".

"Guys I did something unforgivable so do not defend me", Barr wrote. "I am exhausted of being smeared-over a stupid mistake erasing 30 yrs of activism".

While Goodman didn't address the show, he let fans know they shouldn't worry about him. It was 2 in the morning and I was ambien tweeting - it was memorial day too - I went 2 far & do not want it defended - it was egregious indefensible.
