ABC is canceling its Roseanne reboot following backlash from Roseanne Barr's racist tweets aimed at Barack Obama's former aide Valerie Jarrett. "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.
I'm sorry 4 my tweet, AND I will also defend myself as well as talk to my followers. so, go away if u don't like it. I will handle my sadness the way I want to. I'm tired of being attacked & belittled more than other comedians who have said worse.— Roseanne Barr (@therealroseanne) May 30, 2018
