Sara Gilbert Sad For People Who Lost Jobs Due To ‘Roseanne’ Cancellation


Gilbert, who plays Roseanne's daughter Darlene on the show and was instrumental in bringing about the reboot, took to Twitter to release a statement following Barr's tweets.

After reading the tweets, Chen turned to Gilbert, who said she had a hard week following the scandal.

"A lot of people have been hurt by this", Gilbert, 43, said. "I'm really glad to hear you say that because as a black woman who is a comedian, I'm very, very proud of Channing Dungey, the president of ABC Entertainment", she said.

"The show has always been about diversity, love and inclusion, and it's sad to see it end in this way", she said.

This image released by ABC shows Sara Gilbert, left, and Roseanne Barr in a scene from "Roseanne". Sources tell the outlet that the show would likely be titled Darlene, and that Roseanne Barr's character would probably be revealed as dead on the new series. Here's what Gilbert had to say during The Talk this morning. "To Michael Fishman and Sara Gilbert: I forgive u both, love u both, just wish u could have called me personally 2 talk rather than do it in a public arena".

Last week Roseanne Barr tweeted that former Obama aide Valerie Jarret was the "offspring of the 'Muslim Brotherhood & Planet of the Apes'".

Barr subsequently apologized for her tweet, retweeted other things about Jarrett, and said she was on Ambien when she tweeted it.

Sara Gilbert has admitted that it's been a hard week after "Roseanne's" cancellation. "I am disappointed in her actions to say the least", she wrote.

After hundreds of tweets in the days following the cancellation, Barr last tweeted on Thursday, saying in one of her last comments, "I end by offering everyone involved one more apology and prayers for healing of our divided nation".
