John Goodman Breaks Silence After 'Roseanne' Cancellation

John Goodman broke his silence on the Roseanne cancellation after Roseanne Barr‘s racist tweet caused ABC to suspend the show for good.

ET Online caught up with John, who played Roseanne’s husband Dan on the show, who said he would “rather say nothing than to cause more trouble.” About his well-being, he added, “Everything’s fine.”

On the news of the controversial tweet, John said, “I don’t know anything about it. I don’t read it.”

John was also asked about ABC canceling the show’s Emmys For Your Consideration campaign.

“I wasn’t gonna get an Emmy anyway,” he said. “I’ve been up there [11] times already, and if I didn’t get one I’m not gonna get one.”

And about the possibility of any spinoffs happening, he responded, “You’ve heard more than I have.”

'Roseanne' Joke About 'Black & Asian Families' Criticized by 'Fresh Off the Boat' & 'Bob's Burgers' Writers

Roseanne is under fire for a joke.

During Tuesday’s episode (April 3), Roseanne (Roseanne Barr) and Dan (John Goodman) fall asleep in front of the TV, sleeping “from Wheel to Kimmel.”

“We missed all the shows about black and Asian families,” Dan says to Roseanne.

“They’re just like us. There, now you’re all caught up,” Roseanne responds.

The joke prompted many responses from social media, including one from Master Of None actor and Bob’s Burgers writer Kelvin Yu.

“Here’s why the Roseanne joke about ‘missing all the shows about Black and Asian families’ matters. At the very least, it’s reductive and belittling, as if to say those shows are nothing more than ‘Black’ and ‘Asian’ in their existence. But the real kicker is when Roseanne says: ‘They’re just like us. There, now you’re all caught up.’ Which implies that the point of any show about a minority family is simply to normalize them. That’s it. The stories, the humor, the characters … not important,” he wrote.

“Then you take ALLLLLL of that and put it in the mouth of an avowed Trump supporter (not the actress — the CHARACTER of Roseanne) and you have one stinky little s–t sandwich of a joke that ABC allowed to be served in their own restaurant. It’s a big deal.”

Former Fresh Off The Boat writer Kourtney Kang also responded in a guest column for The Hollywood Reporter.

“In these jokes, and in the others like these, at the heart of them, whether the joke-teller means it or not, is a divisive spirit. ‘Us.’ ‘Them.’ It’s always drawing lines. Separating. Whenever these jokes have been said to me, the thing that is the most hurtful is not the insensitive dullard who said it. There’s always going to be people like that. What hurts the most is when everyone else in the room laughs,” she wrote.

Roseanne Barr Reveals Why a 'Roseanne' Revival Didn't Happen Sooner

Roseanne Barr and the cast of the Rosanne revival are celebrating the show’s long awaited premiere!

The 65-year-old actress stepped out for a panel discussion about the show on Monday night (March 26) at The Paley Center for Media in New York City.

She was also joined by her co-stars John Goodman, Michael Fishman, Lecy Goranson and Sarah Chalke.

During the discussion, Roseanne spilled on the previous attempts to revive the beloved show.

“We did talk about a reunion show a lot a really time ago. We wondered if we should do a clip show and I didn’t want to do a clip show. I said we would want to do some new, original sketches and they thought a clip show was better,” Roseanne explained.

Roseanne premieres on Tuesday, March 27th at 8 PM on ABC.
