"It's not a new thing, but it is disheartening that in 2018 we're still talking about people that are using that as the punch, right?" said Kelly Norman Ellis, a professor and department chair at Chicago State University.
Barr has a long history of tweetingracist and generally bigoted comments and, according to Arnold, ABC knew what they signed up for and "needed someone to wrangle her in and take her phone".
"For myself, being an Asian American woman, being a person of color, I have had moments throughout my career where I have let a moment go, and I regretted it".
Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter about his ex-wife's racist tweets that led to the cancellation of her sitcom "Roseanne", the 59-year-old suggested she may have "wanted" the show over.
For cast and crew members that did have longer-term contracts, Barr's show-sinking tweet could be deemed, odd as it sounds, an "act of God". Roseanne is unlikely to maintain its ABC levels of viewership if it moves over to Bond - but Caputo evidently is still trying to keep the show alive in order to highlight Bond's counter-programming initiative.

She has expressed sorrow for her castmates, who are out of a job, while also blasting Gilbert and others for "throwing her under the bus" with public their public admonishments. "Gee, he never called President Donald J. Trump to apologize for the terrible statements made and said about me on ABC". Sara Gilbert, who starred in the original and later starred and executive produced the revival, said Roseanne's views don't represent the cast and crew. She said of the Jarrett tweet, "It was 2 in the morning and I was ambien tweeting".
Meanwhile the subject of the tweet, Valerie Jarrett, responded to the controversy on MSNBC. Donald Trump Jr. retweeted two of Barr's statements about Soros, although not the remark about Jarrett.
