It was Sara Gilbert's fault.

That's what Roseanne Barr told The Washington Post about ABC's cancellation of its "Roseanne" restart.

Barr caused a rebellion on May 29 when she informed what many considered a racist tweet about Obama White House advises Valerie Jarrett. The response was quick, with the network falling its highest rated show within hours.

But in an extensive story published on Thursday, Barr Posten told her she blames Gilbert, who played daughter Darlene Conner on the show.

Hours after Barr's early morning post, Gilbert tweeted Barr's comments were "disgusting and do not reflect our casts and crew's beliefs or anyone affiliated with our show."

"She ruined the show and my life with that tweet," Barr said. "She will never get enough before she uses my live with a fine Chianti."

Shortly after the show's cancellation, Barr said in a podcast interview with Rabbi Shmuley Boteach, & # 39; & # 39; I said to God: "I'm willing to accept the consequences it brings because I know I've done wrong. I will accept what the consequences are, & # 39; and I do, and I have. & # 39;

Since then she has, however, several accused Ambien, her support for President Donald Trump, co-star Gilbert (whom she then forgiven) and Michael Fishman (who plays son DJ), "anti-Semitism", ex net ABC and earlier first lady Michelle Obama.
