ABC has cancelled Roseanne following a Roseanne Barr tweet that suggested former Obama White House adviser Valerie Jarrett was a product of the Muslim Brotherhood and the "Planet of the Apes."
Channing Dungey, president of ABC Entertainment, released the following statement:"Roseanne's Twitter statement is abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values, and we have decided to cancel her show."
Barr has since apologized to Jarrett for "making a bad joke about her politics and her looks." The tweet has been deleted and she said she is leaving Twitter.
