Roseanne Barr backed out of her scheduled appearance on the “Joe Rogan” podcast Friday.
“The Roseanne podcast is not happening today. She’s not doing well and doesn’t want to travel, and she’s gone radio silent on me, so I’m just going to step away,” Joe Rogan posted on Twitter.
“The whole thing has been pretty brutal on her, and I hope she can find some peace,” he added.

The 65-year-old comedian had promoted her appearance on the show earlier in the week following the cancellation of “Roseanne” over her racist comment about former Obama aide Valerie Jarrett.
“Muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby=vj,” Barr tweeted in the now-deleted post.
The actress had also promised her followers she would share her side of the story on the show Friday, before she tweeted that she was “Ambien Tweeting” when it occurred. Those posts have since been deleted but were screen grabbed.
