*First Wanda Sykes said she was no longer a part of ABC’s hit Roseanne revival following Roseanne Barr‘s racist tweet, the network has canceled the show.
“Roseanne’s Twitter statement is abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values, and we have decided to cancel her show,” president of ABC Entertainment Channing Dungey announced in a statement Tuesday.

Gilbert tweeted “I am disappointed in her actions to say the least.”

“Don’t feel sorry for me, guys!!-I just want to apologize to the hundreds of people,and wonderful writers (all liberal) and talented actors who lost their jobs on my show due to my stupid tweet,” Barr tweeted. “I will be on Joe Rogan’s podcast friday.”
“Guys I did something unforgiveable so do not defend me. It was 2 in the morning and I was ambien tweeting-it was memorial day too-i went 2 far & do not want it defended-it was egregious Indefensible [sic]. I made a mistake I wish I hadn’t but…don’t defend it please,” she also tweeted.
In a now-deleted tweet, Barr also wrote an apology to Jarrett, writing, “@ValerieJarrett I want to apologize to you. I am very sorry to have hurt you. I hope you can accept this sincere apology!”
That didn't take long. ABC has cancelled Roseanne.
The news comes after some racially insensitive remarks star Roseanne Barr made this weekend. She called former Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett a product of the "Muslim Brotherhood and Planet of the Apes." Although Rosanne deleted the tweet and apologized, it wasn't enough to save the show.
