Sara Gilbert says she still supports 'Roseanne' cancellation

Tom Arnold says his ex-wife Roseanne Barr is"obviously racist

Gilbert, who starred as Darlene Conner on the original and revived Roseanne along with serving as executive producer behind the just-canceled iteration, is also one of the co-hosts on the morning chat show The Talk.

"I would like to say this has been a very hard week", she said on "The Talk" during its first live episode Monday following a week of pre-taped episodes. "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. "This show has always been about diversity, love and inclusion".

Sara Gilbert spoke out publicly for the first time Monday since ABC canceled "Roseanne" last week, saying she stands by the network's decision to do so. Barr then said she's leaving Twitter. The Talk co-host Sheryl Underwood responded to Gilbert's statement with one of her own.

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


After receiving criticism and hearing about the cancellation, Barr apologized but referred to her controversial gesture as a result of "ambien tweeting".

Roseanne has yet to comment on Sara's new statement, but she previously accused her TV daughter of throwing her "under the bus" in a Twitter statement, before later insisting she had forgiven Gilbert. But Gilbert kept her comments short at the start of the show, before the panel quickly dropped the subject and moved on. "I am disappointed in her actions to say the least, '" Chen read out loud.

The outlet also reported that Gilbert had contacted her "Roseanne" cast mates and to gauge how much interest they had in a potential reboot, and that John Goodman is "very interested".
