I would say "what was she thinking?" but it's obvious she wasn't thinking.
And now she's out of a job... and so are the cast and crew of the reboot of "Roseanne".
"ABC is canceling "Roseanne" after its star Roseanne Barr posted a racist tweet. Barr attacked former President Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett, tweeting, "Muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby = vj." Barr soon deleted the tweet and apologized for the joke that she admitted was in "bad taste." ABC said: "Roseanne's Twitter statement is abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values, and we have decided to cancel her show."
I apologize to Valerie Jarrett and to all Americans. I am truly sorry for making a bad joke about her politics and her looks. I should have known better. Forgive me-my joke was in bad taste.— Roseanne Barr (@therealroseanne) May 29, 2018
I will not be returning to @RoseanneOnABC.— Wanda Sykes (@iamwandasykes) May 29, 2018
Roseanne’s recent comments about Valerie Jarrett, and so much more, are abhorrent and do not reflect the beliefs of our cast and crew or anyone associated with our show. I am disappointed in her actions to say the least.— sara gilbert (@THEsaragilbert) May 29, 2018
This is incredibly sad and difficult for all of us, as we’ve created a show that we believe in, are proud of, and that audiences love— one that is separate and apart from the opinions and words of one cast member.— sara gilbert (@THEsaragilbert) May 29, 2018
We just heard a few weeks ago that it had been renewed... but now it's gone.
