ABC has pulled the plug on the revival “Roseanne.”
The move comes after series star Roseanne Barr made a comment on Twitter Tuesday morning referring to former Obama aide Valerie Jarrett as looking like the offspring of the “Muslim Brotherhood & Planet of the Apes.” Jarrett, an African-American, was born in Iran to American parents.
“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. – Variety
Seems as if Roseanne Barr has been turning heads with her comments a lot recently. However, still surprising to see this news given the success of the show’s revival. What are your thoughts?
