ABC Cancels "Roseanne"

ABC has cancelled "Roseanne" following a tweet by the star about Obama aide Valerie Jarrett.

Roseanne Barr tweeted and referred to Jarrett as a product of the Muslim Brotherhood and the Planet of the Apes.

Before ABC announced the cancellation of the show, several involved in the show such as Wanda Sykes and Sara Gilbert announced that they would be leaving the show.

Barr was also also dropped by her talent agency, ICM Partners.

She late apologized for the tweet.

Barr's behavior on Twitter had been considered a concern among ABC executives during the lead-up to the revival's premiere, as she had a history of posting about political conspiracy theories (such as QAnon and Pedogate), remarks supportive of U.S. president Donald Trump, and other controversial topics on her account.
