'Roseanne' Canceled By ABC After Racist Tweet

Roseanne Barr found herself in hot water yet again. This time, coming after President Obama's former aide Valerie Jarrett. Barr's tweet claimed Jarrett was a product of the Muslim Brotherhood and the "Planet of the Apes." After much backlash, Barr apologize, but that did not resolve anything. ABC has decided to cancel her show. ABC Entertainment president Channing Dungey said in a statement via Variety: "Roseanne's Twitter statement is abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values, and we have decided to cancel her show."
