Roseanne Barr trashed her castmates on Twitter Wednesday hours after the cancellation of her ABC reboot, lashing out at any colleagues who commented on her racially charged comment at former Obama aide Valerie Jarrett.

Bearing the brunt of her angst was Michael Fishman, who played her son D.J. Conner in "Roseanne."

The actor released a lengthy statement via Twitter in which he said the "words of one person do not exemplify the thinking of all involved."

Fishman was referring to a comment Barr made on social media that, if the Muslim Brotherhood and the "Planet of the Apes" "had a baby," it would be Jarrett. 

"I condemn these statements vehemently," he said, adding that "we must stand up against; bias, hatred, bigotry and ignorance to make society a better place for all."

Barr pounced on the post, stating she had created the show as a "platform for that inclusivity."

"You throw me under the bus. Nice!," she remarked to Fishman, who responded by stating Barr had acted so far out of character.

Barr then turned her attention to Sara Gilbert, who played Roseanne’s daughter Darlene Conner in the show, and who said she was disappointed by the star's actions.

The repercussions to Barr's dig at Jarrett has been widespread.

In addition to having her successful reboot of "Roseanne" canceled, the actress' talent agency has dropped her in the wake of massive backlash.

Barr deleted the controversial tweet shortly after posting it and released an apology but it has not stopped the waves of criticism from rolling in.

On Tuesday morning, Barr tweeted she would be leaving social media but within hours she was back, criticizing her former co-stars.
