ABC Cancels Roseanne Revival Due to Barr’s Tweet

ABC Cancels Roseanne Revival Due to Barr’s Tweet

ABC Television Network has announced today that they will be cancelling the Roseanne revival for next season due to one of Roseanne Barr’s tweets about Valerie Jarrett. While this isn’t the view of ABC or fellow Roseanne cast members, it is going to permanently affect the show.

According to Coming Soon, the tweet that has since been removed stated that Valerie Jarrett looked like:

“Muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby.” – Roseanne Barr

Though Roseanne Barr has removed the tweet and apologized profusely on Twitter, ABC will not play around and has cancelled season 11 of Roseanne, scheduled to premiere next year.

Since this has happened, Roseanne cast member Sara Gilbert took to Twitter herself, saying how the cast does not condone these attitudes and beliefs.

While it’s sad to see Roseanne being taken off the air again, I do understand ABC’s reaction and actions that have taken place. Though Barr is an individual with her own beliefs, these beliefs meld into the show through viewership.

We’ll definitely miss what Roseanne season 11 would have been like.
