Trump to Disney CEO: 'Where is my apology?'

President TrumpDonald TrumpTrump's Facebook ban to stay in place, board rules Trump allies launching nonprofit focused on voter fraud DOJ asks for outside lawyer to review Giuliani evidence MORE targeted Bob Iger in the wake of the controversy surrounding Roseanne Barr, asking why the Disney CEO did not apologize for a corrected ABC News report late last year. 

"Iger, where is my call of apology?" Trump asked in a tweet early Thursday.

"You and ABC have offended millions of people, and they demand a response. How is Brian Ross doing? He tanked the market with an ABC lie, yet no apology. Double Standard!" he added.

 

 

The report, which the network was forced to correct, said the president had directed former national security adviser Michael Flynn to make contact with Russian officials during the campaign. 

ABC, which is owned by Disney, issued an apology after the report and suspended Ross for four weeks.

"We deeply regret and apologize for the serious error we made yesterday. The reporting conveyed by Brian Ross during the special report had not been fully vetted through our editorial standards process," ABC said in a statement last December. "As a result of our continued reporting over the next several hours ultimately we determined the information was wrong and we corrected the mistake on air and online."

The president's latest tweet comes after the network canceled its hit reboot of "Roseanne" after Barr tweeted that former Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett was a child of the Islamist organization Muslim Brotherhood and the movie "Planet of the Apes."

Iger, who reportedly apologized to Jarrett, said in a tweet on Tuesday that canceling the show was the network's only option.
