Moreover, Gilbert was very vocal about the incident soon after it happened. She also made sure to share her words in defense of the show’s cast via Twitter. In her first tweet, she 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.

On the same day, she again added in her second tweet:

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.
