John Goodman Broke His Silence on the “Roseanne” Cancellation With an Awkward Statement


With the drama still riding high from Roseanne Barr’s offensive Twitter spree, her fellow castmates and other celebrities have spoken out to applaud ABC’s decision to pull the plug on “Roseanne”— except for her TV hubby, John Goodman. 

In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, John Goodman finally addressed the cancellation by saying he’d “rather say nothing than to cause more trouble.” Fair enough. 

He went on to say that, as someone who doesn’t use Twitter, he had no comment about Roseanne’s Tweets. 

“I don’t know anything about it,” he said. “I don’t read it.” 

Still not too weird, right? When asked about his feelings around “Roseanne” no longer being eligible for Emmys, he said: “I wasn’t gonna get an Emmy anyway. “I’ve been up there [10] times already, and if I didn’t get one, I’m not gonna get one.”

Well, okay. 

Several of Barr’s other castmates have responded to the show’s cancellation. Barr continues to Tweet (and Retweet) on the matter.
