ABC Cancels ‘Roseanne’ Following Racist Tweet

ABC has canceled its hit sitcom reboot, “Roseanne.”
This move comes after the actress unleashed a fury of tweets, one of which compared former aide Valerie Jarrett to an animal.

In the now-deleted tweet, Barr wrote, “Muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby=vj.” Barr was responding to a comment about Valerie Jarrett, a former aide to President Obama.

The actress apologized and said she was “now leaving Twitter.” Before the official cancellation announcement, consulting producer and comedienne Wanda Sykes quit the show.

The cancellation comes just months after it’s renewal.
