Alain Washnevsky, who was born in Iran and raised in Austria, says he got to know Roseanne Barr on set as "a funny, helpful and real person." He adds: "When I read about her tweet, I couldn’t believe it. I was so shocked, angry and hurt. Her words go against everything I believe in and everything that our episode represented. Or so I thought. I was extremely disappointed not only by her words, but also by the cancellation of the show which shined a light into many dark spots of our society — corners of society we don’t like to look at, see or talk about at parties."
