'Roseanne' Canceled After Barr's Racist Twitter Rant

posted by Mary Booth - 

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". 

Here's the story:

"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." 

We just heard a few weeks ago that it had been renewed... but now it's gone.
