Wanda Sykes, who is a consulting producer on the ABC revival, tweeted Tuesday that she won’t be returning to the sitcom for its next season.
I will not be returning to @RoseanneOnABC.

The announcement comes after star and series creator Roseanne Barr’s racist tweet Tuesday, which described the Black former Obama advisor Valerie Jarrett as a combination of the Muslim Brotherhood and Planet of the Apes.
Considering how successful the ‘Roseanne’ reboot has been for ABC, it’ll be interesting to see the network’s position.
Update: ‘Roseanne’ has been canceled by ABC.
