That Was Fast! 'Roseanne' Canceled By ABC After Racist Tweet, Won't Return for Season 11

‘Roseanne’ has been cancelled.

The move comes just hours after 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.

Roseanne was set to air 13-episode eleventh season this fall. Considering the show finished the season as the No. 1 scripted primetime television series in the 18-49 demo, many are surprised by the network’s swift decision to pull the show from air.
