But supporters for Barr were in short supply following her racially charged tweets in May this year, with almost all her former co-stars condemning her comments.

Roseanne Barr has called a double standard on supporters of director James Gunn, who was sacked from directing the Guardians of the Galaxy franchise over offensive tweets.

She wrote, today: "I'm disgusted to read all of the support for James Gunn's pedophile jokes - as the same people supported blacklisting me for a joke they didn't even understand".

Gunn was recently fired from his cushy Marvel gig after an online campaign, led by alt-right conspiracist Mike Cernovich, seized upon old tweets in which Gunn joked about paedophilia.

As for Roseanne, the Trump supporter lost her show for tweeting that Jarrett was as if the "Muslim brotherhood & Planet of the apes had a baby".

A judge granted Glendon's restraining order request and Stormy can not come in contact with him or their seven-year-old daughter. In an interview with Rolling Stone , Daniels said the level of scrutiny and media attention brought upon her family was hard .

Meanwhile, amid the fallout from Gunn's firing, the director does appear to have the support of his Guardians of the Galaxy cast, including Pratt, Zoe Saldana and Dave Bautista. "It was very hard to fight and be the only one, you know, the assumptions they make, and I had to fight tons of them every day just to present a balanced view and it was waring on me in every way".

Since producer Harvey Weinstein's firing from his own studio over allegations of sexual harassment last October, Hollywood has seen a wave of dismissals for bad behavior, including the cancellation of film and shows featuring Kevin Spacey and Louis C.K. Disney eased out animation executive John Lasseter over allegations of inappropriate touching and canceled a hit show starring Roseanne Barr because of a racist tweet.

Recorded at San Diego Comic-Con, the clip sees Kaufman call his old colleague the "nicest, most generous, talented, and decent person I've known in my 50 years of making movies".

Gunn sent several tweets apologizing for the remarks, saying he was trying in the past to get laughs through shock value.
