Sara Gilbert says she's saddened by the abrupt cancellation of Roseanne—but she still supports the move. On CBS' The Talk on Monday, the co-star said it had been a "difficult week" since ABC axed the popular rebooted sitcom over a racist tweet from Roseanne Barr, reports Rolling Stone. "A lot of people have been hurt by this," Gilbert said. "I will say I am proud of the show we made. The show has always been about diversity, love, and inclusion. And it's sad to see it end in this way." She said she was sad for the people who lost their jobs, but she stood behind ABC's decision. The Talk co-hosts Sheryl Underwood and Julie Chen agreed with Gilbert, saying they were glad the network sent a strong message with the rapid cancellation of the show, E! Online reports. (Roseanne may end up going ahead without the title character.)
