The future of the Roseanne cast remains uncertain, and while many fans are calling for a return or a spin-off, the network hasn't released a statement yet.


However, Roseanne Barr took to social media on Tuesday and said in a somewhat cryptic tweet that she would be 'making restitution for the pain [she has] caused.'

In an earlier tweet, Barr hinted that she is 'deplatformed.' It is a form of boycott where a person is denied a platform to share their thoughts. 

Many of her fans believe that she has nothing to apologize for and that ABC is responsible for the pain caused when they canceled her show. 


A Twitter user known as Nicole Nesbitt said Barr is beautiful and strong, and Carol Yund asked why apologies aren't accepted anymore. 

She admitted that Barr's comment about Valerie Jarrett was 'a dumb tweet,' but feels ruining Barr's career and pulling her show from the air was too extreme. 

Will Wilson assured Barr that she has 'tons of support,' while Jeff Dishon added: 'You apologized and I am sure that what you tweeted was taken totally out of context.'

On the other end of the spectrum, Ederlore pointed out that an apology would suffice for a one-time occurrence, but Roseanne is beyond that point in his opinion.


He added: 'Roseanne has a history of gleaning garbage from Alt-right websites and then passing them along on Twitter.'

A user known only as The Truth said Barr's tweet wasn't a 'small error in judgment.' He admits that he was a fan of Barr's show, but actions have consequences.

'I was a fan my whole life, but racism isn’t a [...] joke. When you’ve suffered the slings and arrows firsthand, you don’t tend to laugh at it.'

Season 1 to 9 of the original sitcom aired from 1988 until 1997. The show returned to the small screen 20 years later for a reboot. For more updates, follow our Twitter account, AmoMama USA
