‘Roseanne’ Reboot Canceled After Star’s Tweet About Valerie Jarrett
May 29, 2018
ABC has canceled ‘Roseanne’ after its star posted racially charged tweets. “Roseanne’s Twitter statement is abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values, and we have decided to cancel her show,” ABC President Channing Dungey said in a statement. It comes a day after star Roseanne Barr shot off a tweet aimed at a former aide to President Obama, Valerie Jarrett, saying she looks like "Muslim Brotherhood & Planet of the Apes had a baby." The tweet was later deleted.
