In fewer than 20 words, Channing stepped into the spotlight and left many wondering who she was.

It came after the comedian apologised earlier today for posting the now-deleted remark on social media. "I am truly sorry for making a bad joke about her politics and her looks".

"He's just happy for me", Barr said in March about her call with the president.

Another lengthier apology was sent to reporters.

The second season of Roseanne could have earned ABC $60 million in advertising revenue, according to projections from an ad-tracking firm. "You know who I blame for this? I'm exhausted of being attacked & belittled more than other comedians who have said worse".

She got her start in Hollywood in the early 1990s, developing movie ideas at 20th Century Fox and then becoming a story editor for Steven Seagal's company, which was based at Warner Bros.

In an hours-long Twitter rant on Tuesday, Barr used racist language in a tweet that identified the administration official by her initials: "muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby=vj". Some fans are angry with the network and think it was quick to cancel the show because Roseanne is an unabashed Trump supporter.

She also said she had taken sleeping pills before writing the tweet. It was particularly popular among many conservative viewers because Barr's character expressed support for President Donald Trump. "This is okay, but this isn't?" the caption reads.

Barr also continued to tweet about George Soros, a liberal donor who has been painted as the villain in many right-wing conspiracy theories.

Meanwhile, her former colleagues attempted to distance themselves from the star. "The racist and distasteful comments from Roseanne are inexcusable".

Within a matter of hours, Roseanne producer Wanda Sykes announced she was quitting; ABC issued a statement decrying Barr's "abhorrent" comments and confirming the cancellation of her series; and talent agency ICM Partners dropped Barr as a client.

After the initial tweet on Tuesday, ABC announced it was cancelling her popular US television comedy, Roseanne.
