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

There was only one thing to do here, and that was the right thing.
Roseanne’s recent comments about Valerie Jarrett, and so much more, are abhorrent and do not reflect the beliefs of our cast and crew or anyone associated with our show. I am disappointed in her actions to say the least.— sara gilbert (@THEsaragilbert) May 29, 2018
This is incredibly sad and difficult for all of us, as we’ve created a show that we believe in, are proud of, and that audiences love— one that is separate and apart from the opinions and words of one cast member.— sara gilbert (@THEsaragilbert) May 29, 2018
Thank you, Channing. #justice— shonda rhimes (@shondarhimes) May 29, 2018
But honestly she got what she deserved. As I tell my 4 year old, one makes a choice with one’s actions. Roseanne made a choice. A racist one. ABC made a choice. A human one.— shonda rhimes (@shondarhimes) May 29, 2018
I'm glad Roseanne is canceled.— Kumail Nanjiani (@kumailn) May 29, 2018
The backlash to its cancellation is going to be a deafening nightmare.
Nothing good has come of this entire thing.

and beneath her best self
she has apologized
twitter is a dangerous place

Ton of respect for Bob Iger. Tough decision with financial consequences for his company but right for America....umm..now don't bug Bob but maybe someone else find out if I'm still banned from all of @ABCNetwork for calling Roseanne Barr out first on her racist conspiracy tweets?— Tom Arnold (@TomArnold) May 29, 2018
That disturbance in the Force you’re feeling is Fox News drawing up the paperwork to land Roseanne as Hannity’s lead-in...— Craig Thomas (@HimymCraig) May 29, 2018
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.
