“I wasn’t gonna get an Emmy anyway."

ABC canceled the Roseanne revival yesterday following Roseanne Barr's racist tweets about Valerie Jarrett, and Barr's on-screen husband John Goodman has weighed in on the situation, being as diplomatic as possible.

"I'd rather say nothing than to cause more trouble," Goodman told an Entertainment Tonight videographer. "Everything's fine." When asked if he thought the controversy would endanger his chances of winning an Emmy, Goodman was more glib: "I wasn't gonna get an Emmy anyway. I've been up there [11] times already, and if I didn't get one I'm not gonna get one."

Goodman isn't the only Roseanne star to comment on the show's cancellation and Barr's racist remarks. Sarah Gilbert tweeted that "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."

Michael Fishman, who plays D.J. Conner, said that while he'd miss the show, he believes that "to sit back or remain silent in an attempt to distance myself from the actions/statements of others would unintentionally endorse or placate those statements which I find truly offensive. In this moment it is important to be clear. We must stand-up against; bias, hatred, bigotry and ignorance to make society a better place for all."
