The article goes on to state the following:
In a recent interview with The Sunday Times, Goodman spoke out about the network’s choice to cancel the show in May after Barr was fired following a racially insensitive tweet aimed at former senior adviser to Barack Obama, Valerie Jarrett.
Goodman, who previously refused to discuss the sitcom’s scandal, said he was “surprised” to learn of the network’s decision to fire Barr.
“I was surprised. I’ll put it this way, I was surprised at the response… and that’s probably all I should say about it,” he said, not wanting to add more.
Goodman, who played Barr’s husband, Dan Conner in the series since its inception, added that the cancellation hit him pretty hard and admitted that he suffered depression because of it.
“I was brokenhearted, but I thought, ‘OK, it’s just show business, I’m going to let it go,'” he told the outlet. “But I went through a period, about a month, where I was very depressed. I’m a depressive anyway, so any excuse that I can get to lower myself, I will. But that had a great deal to do with it, more than I wanted to admit.”
