BREAKING: Bad News For ‘Roseanne’ Reruns As Multiple Networks Release Statements

-

Just when we thought it couldn’t get any worse for Roseanne Barr, the comedian just got the worst news of the day, and the hits just keep on rolling in. Now, reports have been released from multiple networks and outlets that run original Roseanne reruns saying that they will no longer play old episodes due to Barr’s blatant racism:

According to The Hollywood Reporter:

“After a racist tweet by Roseanne Barr that created an outcry online, reruns of the Roseanne revival scheduled to air on Viacom networks Paramount Network, TV Land and CMT will be pulled from their respective schedules. Roseanne reruns will be canceled on the three channels starting Wednesday, a Viacom spokesperson said.”

The #winning actress/comedian has been pissing people off for decades, habitually overstepping every moral and ethical line a civilized person toes. Roseanne singlehandedly brought down her entire Roseanne franchise with one sentence today, however. That one sentence left the ABC Network with no other choice but to cancel the show for the remainder of the season and for all future seasons.

The Reporter continued:

“Later on Tuesday a Hulu spokesperson also confirmed that the streaming platform would be dropping the show, writing, “We support ABC’s decision and are removing the show from Hulu.”

“The Laff broadcast network Tuesday announced that it would be dropping reruns of the original series, which ran from 1988-97 on ABC. ‘While we believe viewers have always distinguished the personal behavior of the actress Roseanne Barr from the television character Roseanne Connor, we are disgusted by Barr’s comments this week. Therefore, we are removing the original Roseanne series from the Laff schedule for the time being, effective immediately,’ Laff said in a statement.”

The insane tweet was met with major backlash from cast-mates, producers, the CEO of Disney, former writers for the show, and even ABC. The network released a statement calling out the abhorrent behavior of the comedian, effectively cancelling the new hit show reboot.

Roseanne’s talent agency has released a statement to the media regarding their connection with her. The statement from ICM Partners reads:

“We are all greatly distressed by the disgraceful and unacceptable tweet from Roseanne Barr this morning. What she wrote is antithetical to our core values, both as individuals and as an agency. Consequently, we have notified her that we will not represent her,” ICM Partners continued. “Effective immediately, Roseanne Barr is no longer a client.”

It is Roseanne’s mouth, led by her shrunken brain, that has caused her to, not only lose her new job, but to soil the iconic legacy she had built for herself with the original show, which was very liberal and inclusive.

Actress Sarah Gilbert released a statement on Twitter moments before ABC pulled the plug.

A former writer for the original show, Danny Zuker, wrote this on his Twitter page:

Many people are kind of over it, though. The general notion is that these people, Roseanne’s colleagues, all chose to sign on for the project after Roseanne had made headlines for disgusting statements. So, this sudden display of emotions surrounding calling a black person an ape is a day late and a dollar short.
