Sandra Bernhard throws shade at Roseanne Barr after 'Roseanne' cancelled

Sandra Bernhard, who played Nancy in the original Roseanne series, blatantly blamed Roseanne Barr for the cancellation of the hit comedy series.


The actress responded to a Twitter comment written by a fan who expressed sadness upon the show’s tragic fate.

The cancellation was one of the backlashes of Barr’s racial comments about Valerie Jarrett, former President Barack Obama’s adviser.

The Twitter user, Daniel Kinkade, said to Bernhard that he was sad he won’t be able to see the actress and the rest of the cast on the television now that the show was canceled.

Bernhard, who appeared in one of the episodes on the revival series, responded, ‘Well, there's only one person to blame.’


Barr’s inappropriate statements led ABC to cancel the show hours after the controversy surfaced.

ABC Entertainment President Channing Dungey said in a short message to the press, "Roseanne's Twitter statement is abhorrent, repugnant, and inconsistent with our values, and we have decided to cancel her show.”

Many Twitter users, including other celebrities, slammed Barr after she posted the tweets and after the news on the cancellation of the show had been made public.

Barr’s co-stars also took to Twitter to share their sentiments about the issue.

Sara Gilbert wrote, ‘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.’

In a separate tweet, she also said, ‘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.’

Michael Fishman also posted a lengthy statement on Twitter clarifying his side, including the other cast and crew of the show apart from Barr.

Barr has made a public apology on Twitter and announced that she will be leaving the social media platform.
