ABC Looking to Rebrand 'Roseanne' With Focus on Other Characters, Source Says

Roseanne Barr claims she fought to keep ABC from canceling "Roseanne".

As Radar has reported, the disgraced comedian's former co-stars are busy discussing saving the show. According to Deadline, "Roseanne" executive producers Tom Werner and Sara Gilbert, who plays Darlene Conner on the series, will meet about possible ideas to continue the show without its main star.

After initially saying she was going to leave Twitter following the backlash, Roseanne returned after her show was cancelled to tell fans not to defend her.

"Sara is super upset about all of this, just as everyone else is", said the insider.

In other tweets, Barr, 65, said that she was exhausted of "being attacked and belittled more than other comedians who have said worse" and asked for people not to boycott ABC, saying that the network has the right to "do what they wish". I'd worked doing publicity for them for free for weeks, traveling, thru bronchitis. "I begged 4 ppls jobs", she tweeted.

"I begged Ben Sherwood at ABC 2 let me apologise & make amends".

In between posting self-pitying apology tweets and retweeting right-leaning supporters on how unfair her show's cancellation was, Ro-Ro revealed she made a desperate plea to Ben Sherwood hoping that the Disney/ABC Television Group President would allow her to "make amends" for her racist tweet about Valerie Jarrett. Sanofi U.S., the biopharmaceutical company that makes Ambien, responded to Barr's claim, condemning her excuse.

"I end by offering everyone involved one more apology and prayers for healing of our divided nation". "In her words, she said, 'I need to adjust my meds". Barr wrote. "He scoffed & said: 'what you have done is egregious, and unforgivable.' I begged 4 my crew's jobs. Thank U God 4 comforting me", she wrote. Will I ever recover from this pain?

Barr also portrayed herself as the victim, tweeting, "I think I spent the last 24 hours watching the party of inclusion, diversity, understanding, and acceptance, lynch a Jew".
