Roseanne has been cancelled according to Variety. This after disgustingly racist remarks made by Roseanne Barr on her Twitter page. Roseanne made the colossal mistake of mocking Obama official Valerie Jarrett, saying she looked like a Muslim monkey.
We reported earlier:
“Roseanne has officially crossed over to the dark side, and while her disgusting remarks and racist antics have gone mostly unnoticed as she was kind of written off as a nut-bag, lately she has received some pretty bad media attention for her statements about Muslims, Donald Trump, Jews, etc.”
Now, according to Variety:
“ABC has pulled the plug on the revival “Roseanne.”
“The move comes after series star Roseanne Barr made a comment on Twitter Tuesday morning referring to former Obama aide Valerie Jarrett as the “offspring of the ‘Muslim Brotherhood & Planet of the Apes.’”
“Roseanne’s Twitter statement is abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values, and we have decided to cancel her show,” ABC Entertainment president Channing Dungey said in a statement.”
Producer Wanda Sykes resigned immediately upon hearing the news:
I will not be returning to @RoseanneOnABC.

The reaction to her tweet was crazy:
