BREAKING: Roseanne cancelled by ABC after Barr’s racist tweet

The ABC Television Network has announced that they have cancelled Roseanne after previously renewing the series for an 11th season just 2 months ago. The events that saw Roseanne cancelled stem from star Roseanne Barr’s disgusting, racially-charged Tweet (since-deleted) regarding Valerie Jarrett, a top former aide to President Obama. Barr, an avowed Trump supporter, crossed a major line with the remark that exclaimed that Jarret looked like “Muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby.” 

“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 an official statement.

Disney Chairman and CEO Bob Iger also through his opinion into the ring, siding 100% with Dungey’s decision.

Season 10 of the revival earned huge ratings and generally favorable reviews from critics for its short 9-episode run, which just ended on May 22. The classic sitcom, featuring the complete original cast and new series regulars, explored life, death and everything in between through the brutally honest lens of the Conner household.  The revived series starred Roseanne Barr as Roseanne Conner, John Goodman as Dan Conner, Laurie Metcalf as Jackie Harris, Lecy Goranson as Becky Conner-Healy, Sara Gilbert as Darlene Conner, Michael Fishman as D.J. Conner, Emma Kenney as Harris Conner-Healy, Ames McNamara as Mark Conner-Healy and Jayden Rey as Mary Conner. Sarah Chalke, who played the character Becky in later seasons, also appeared in another role.

Roseanne was produced by Carsey-Werner Television. Executive producers included Roseanne Barr, Sara Gilbert, Tom Werner, Bruce Helford, Whitney Cummings and Tony Hernandez.
