Roseanne Canceled Due to Roseanne Barr's "Repugnant" Tweet

Roseanne Barr apologizes for Twitter post blasted as 'racist'

Earlier on Tuesday she retweeted a post in support of Tommy Robinson, the right-wing activist and former leader of the English Defence League.

Pre-production for the revival's next season, the series' 11th overall, was already under way when Barr made disparaging remarks about former White House senior adviser Valerie Jarrett, prompting Disney and ABC executives to cancel one of its most popular prime-time programs.

The star is due to appear on comedian Joe Rogan's podcast on Friday.

Barr, a vocal supporter of President Donald Trump, eventually apologized to Jarrett for the racist and since deleted tweet.

'I apologise. I am now leaving Twitter'. A few hours after Barr's tweet, Wanda Sykes, a consulting producer on the Roseanne show, tweeted she will not be returning.

"Guys I did something unforgiveable so do not defend me", Barr wrote, after retweeting many fans who had been defending her.

"I apologize from the bottom of my heart and hope you can find it in your hearts to forgive me".

Lemon began the segment by pointing to some of Barr's many controversial statements in the past and suggesting these new comments from her - in which she compared Valerie Jarrett to an ape - are nothing new.

"We are all greatly distressed by the disgraceful and unacceptable tweet from Roseanne Barr this morning".

In addition to the continued royalties from episodes of Roseanne, other sources of income for Barr include TV cameos, TV appearances and books, giving her a total of $42million (£31.6m) by 2011. I am very sorry to have hurt you.

ABC Entertainment President Channing Dungey said in a statement later in the day, "Roseanne's Twitter statement is abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values, and we have chose to cancel her show". "It's not the first time she's done it", Lemon said.

"I'm fine. I'm anxious about the people out there who don't have a circle of friends and followers who come right to their defense". "You know who I blame for this?" It represented the work of hundreds of talented people. "I made a mistake I wish I hadn't but.don't defend it please. ty", she tweeted.

USA television star Roseanne Barr has apologised for her racist outburst against a former Barack Obama aide, claiming she believed the target of her abuse was white.
