#RoseanneIsCanceled: Celebrities React To Roseanne Barr's Head-Spinning Demise Following Racist Tweet

Shonda Rhimes, Ava DuVernay and many more weigh in.

Published May 29, 2018

“Roseanne” was officially cancelled earlier today (May 29) after the show’s star decided to show her true racist colors.

  1. Roseanne Barr, in a now-deleted tweet, went on a racist tirade on Twitter and suggested that Valerie Jarrett, a former aide to President Obama, was a product of the Muslim Brotherhood and the "Planet of the Apes.” It was just the latest of a series of disgusting tweets she’s made about Donald Trump, Obama, Hillary Clinton, and race.

    Initially, it had Wanda Sykes quit and later, ABC President Channing Dungey canning the show.

    "Roseanne's Twitter statement is abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values, and we have decided to cancel her show," he said in a statement.

    Celebrities and cast members of Roseanne have also reacted to the cancellation news. Barr pretty much became a pinata.

  2. Roseanne Barr did eventually apologize, but after all the other racist and questionable things she's tweeted over the past few years added on to this? Nah sis, we're good.
