“Roseanne” Star & Producer Sara Gilbert on Cancellation: “Roseanne’s comments are abhorrent”

Share

It was Sara Gilbert who brokered the return of “Roseanne” to ABC. She’s the Executive Producer, having played Darlene on the original show. She invented and co-hosts “The Talk” on CBS as well.

Gilbert must be crushed by the cancellation today.

She’s Tweeted this: “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.This is incredibly sad and difficult for all of us, as we’ve created a show that we believe in, are proud of, and that audiences love— one that is separate and apart from the opinions and words of one cast member.”
