John Goodman, who stars as the titular character’s husband on the ABC show, has become the latest to break their silence.
Goodman, a famed character actor who has appeared in everything from indie film favourites to multi-million blockbusters, added that: “Everything’s fine.”
Questioned about being upset that ABC has suspended their ‘For Your Consideration’ Emmy campaign for Roseanne, Goodman was unphased: “I wasn’t gonna get an Emmy anyway. I’ve been up there  times already, and if I didn’t get one I’m not gonna get one.”
Pressed further about appearing in a rumoured Roseanne spin-off without the titular character, he said: “You’ve heard more than I have.”
Meanwhile, Barr has blamed the racist Tweet on taking Ambien, leading to the pharmaceutical company behind the drug, Sanofi, to release a statement saying “racism is not a known side effect of any Sanofi medication”.
