  • Roseanne’ Consulting Producer Wanda Sykes Quits After Valerie Jarrett TweetMore

The American television network ABC described the star's tweet as abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with its values.

Actress Roseanne Barr's racist comment resulted in ABC canceling its successful "Roseanne" revival.

After the tweet, Barr proceeded to retweet many of her follower's outraged posts that supported her, criticized the firing, or pointed out what they deemed to be unfair insults from the left that should also result in people losing their jobs.

While asking not to be defended, she retweeted comments from supporters that attacked ABC and complained that conservatives are tweeted more harshly than liberals for their behavior.

On Tuesday, the chairman of the network's parent company, Disney, said the cancellation "was the right thing" to do, and Barr was dropped by ICM Partners, the talent agency that represented her.

In a short statement announcing the cancelation of the Roseanne reboot, Roseanne Barr's behavior was described as "abhorrent" by ABC executives. The show returned in March after over 20 years to over 18 million viewers for its combined two-episode premiere.

And it was all killed in a 53-character tweet.




Barr, who is twice-divorced, lives in Hawaii and is dating musician Johnny Argent, has said she's "not a Trump apologist" but a "radical". She later apologized for the racist tweet.

"He talked about jobs, Jackie", Roseanne says of the president.

Barr, who has since apologized to Jarrett on Twitter, is facing intense backlash for her comments. "Forgive me - my joke was in bad taste", she tweeted. In another tweet: "As I called my manager to quit working on Roseanne, I was told it was cancelled". "I'm anxious about all the people who don't have a circle of friends and followers who come right to their defense".

Barr was quickly condemned. Barr took to Twitter overnight to apologize again and say that she sent out her racist tweet after taking a sedative. - Chairman and CEO of The Walt Disney Co. The firm estimates that the 13 episodes that had been ordered for next season would have brought in as much as $60 million, with more through repeat episodes.

The fallout from the show's cancellation also hit its lucrative syndication market as Viacom said it would pull reruns of the 1990s Roseanne episodes from its Paramount, TV Land and CMT cable networks.

Hulu said the new Roseanne show would no longer be available on its streaming service. "What changed, ABC? Because Roseanne has been writing racist tweets since forever". "Dungey for placing the values of diversity, inclusion and respect for humanity above ratings".

The former senior adviser to President Barack Obama said that she believes ABC made the right decision in canceling "Roseanne".
