While a source told People magazine Barr is "in deep darkness and is very remorseful" for the racially-charged tweet that drew huge backlash and saw United States network ABC cancel her Roseanne reboot, she seemed in a defiant mood in her latest posts.

John Goodman has responded to the furore surrounding his Roseanne co-star Roseanne Barr by joking he wasn't going to win an award for the cancelled TV show anyway. While everyone from Tom Arnold to President Trump has sounded off with their opinion on the cancellation and Barr's comment, some of the people involved with the show are choosing to stay quiet.

Barr has since stated that she would be addressing the entire controversy on Joe Rogan's podcast, "The Joe Rogan Experience", this upcoming Friday. "It's the most gawd terrible painful thing".

He said he doesn't know anything about Barr's tweets, including one that featured a racial slur against Valerie Jarrett, a former aide to President Obama. Trump doesn't get an apology when people say offensive things about him because a country where the media is only allowed to say good things about the leader is not a democracy. The 65-year-old actress has since apologized and blamed the sleep aid Ambien for her comments - while claiming she would stay off Twitter.

The television network said on Tuesday: "Roseanne's Twitter statement is abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values and we have chose to cancel her show".

The CNN report says Barr cited Ambien again in a later tweet, but she subsequently deleted the tweets with references to the insomnia medication.

By Thursday, her tweets had become more and more apologetic.

Barr herself is a Trump supporter, and in the season opener of the "Roseanne" revival, viewers heard that Roseanne Conner had voted for Trump in the presidential election.

Barr ended her most recent string of tweets by writing, "I end by offering everyone involved one more apology and prayers for healing of our divided nation".
