Trump suggested he was disappointed he’d never received a call from Bob Iger, CEO of the Walt Disney Company, about “the HORRIBLE statements made and said about me on ABC.” Former Obama White House adviser Valerie Jarrett, the subject of some of Barr’s tweets, said she received a call from Iger Tuesday informing her of the show’s cancellation.
Disney owns ABC.
“Muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby=vj,” Barr tweeted in reference to Jarrett, who is black and was born in Iran to American parents. She also linked Clinton to Soros, who she falsely claimed was a Nazi collaborator.
“Roseanne’s Twitter statement is abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values, and we have decided to cancel her show,” the network said Tuesday in a statement.
