“It had to happen. And I am going to tell you the truth, she wanted it to happen, if you saw how her tweets escalated this weekend. If it hadn’t happened yesterday, this season would have been so awful for everyone every day because she would have felt like she was [being] taken advantage [of], just like when I left the show.”

“ABC lost maybe $1 billion from this; this show was grinding out money hand over fist and they lost it all because somebody didn’t say ‘Get that phone out of her hand,’” he said of the situation.

“She’s not going to go on TV and say these things. But you put that phone in her hand, and she is a loose cannon,” he added.

Tom also says he recommended taking the phone away from Roseanne during the first season.

“I said look, someone has got to tell her that Donald Trump doesn’t carry his own phone. He may say the tweet, but someone is typing it in…she needed someone to wrangle her in and take her phone.”

“I wrote a whole thing for her a month ago and sent it over [to the crew] that said ‘I am going to take a step back, it was fun at first, but now I can see how much negativity there is out there and people are getting hurt and I am going to take a step back and I am hoping my fans will too.’ And then if her crazy tweets came out, she could point to that and say, ‘But I have taken a step back.’”
