Trump says he's still waiting for apology from Bob Iger

The veteran actor and Roseanne Barr's TV husband broke his silence on Barr's racist Twitter fiasco, gingerly broaching the subject that led to his hit ABC TV show getting canceled on Tuesday.

The French pharmaceutical giant Sanofi was quick to push back - trolling Barr in an acerbic post that quickly went viral.

The comedian has a habit of deleting all her tweets when she temporarily quits the website, which means deep dives into her Twitter past rely on previous reporting and on what on the Internet Archive's Wayback Machine has captured.

Mr Trump targeted Robert Iger on Twitter, saying: "Iger, where is my call of apology? I'm so sick over this - they will never have better character actors on their network", Barr wrote. On the same night as her Jarrett tweet, she posted a false claim about Chelsea Clinton that Clinton refuted.

The whole debacle arose on Monday when Barr proclaimed that, if the Muslim Brotherhood and the "Planet of the Apes" "had a baby", it would be Jarrett.

Barr sparked widespread anger, including at ABC, with a since-deleted tweet comparing Valerie Jarrett, an adviser to President Barack Obama, to an ape. He scoffed & said: "what u have done is egregious, and unforgivable.' I begged 4 my crews jobs".

"Bob Iger of ABC called Valerie Jarrett to let her know that "ABC does not tolerate comments like those" made by Roseanne Barr", he tweeted.

And, in one of her many tweets and retweets Wednesday, Barr expressed sadness that Roseanne co-star Goodman and Laurie Metcalf also lost their jobs as a result of the cancellation, but she blamed ABC. "I was personally horrified and saddened by the comments and in no way do they reflect the values of the people who worked so hard to make this the iconic show that it is".

Roughly two weeks ago, Roseanne co-showrunner Whitney Cummings announced she was leaving the show, citing schedule conflicts.

She also wrote: "Give Ireland back to the British too".

Barr continued in another Tweet: "He said: what were you thinking when you did this?"

The photographer also asked Goodman about rumors that the show might go on without Roseanne in the form of a spin-off.

Responding to a fan on Twitter, she said she believed the show was axed because of a threatened boycott of the show's advertisers.

In addition to the cancellation of her rebooted show, reruns of the original program, which ran for much of the 1990s, were pulled by Viacom.
