AceShowbiz - The cancellation of "Roseanne" reboot was Sara Gilbert's fault, according to Roseanne Barr. Despite the fact that Barr caused a social media uproar following her offensive tweet toward Valerie Jarrett, the TV star put the blame on her "Roseanne" co-star Gilbert.
In a tell-all interview with The Washington Post which was published on Thursday, March 21, the 66-year-old claimed that Gilbert "destroyed the show and my life with that tweet." The Roseanne Conner depicter went on saying, "She will never get enough until she consumes my liver with a fine Chianti."
Barr referred to Gilbert's tweet in which the latter called out her TV mother for being "racist" in a May 2018 tweet. The tweet saw her suggesting that Jarrett, the former adviser to President Barack Obama, would be the "baby" of the "Muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes."
At the time, Sara distanced herself and the show from the disgraced star, writing, "Roseanne's recent comments about Valerie Jarrett, and so much more, are abhorrent and do not reflect the beliefs of our cast and crew or anyone associated with our show. I am disappointed in her actions to say the least." Barr quickly responded to her tweet as she said, "Wow! unreal."

After ABC pulled the plug on the show, Barr revealed in a podcast interview with Rabbi Shmuley Boteach, "I said to God, 'I am willing to accept whatever consequences this brings because I know I've done wrong. I'm going to accept what the consequences are,' and I do, and I have." She added, "But they don't ever stop. They don't accept my apology, or explanation. And I've made myself a hate magnet. And as a Jew, it's just horrible. It's horrible."
