‘Roseanne’ Canceled by ABC After Star Makes Racial Slur

Share

Seems like no one is that sorry to see the back of Rosanne, following her racist tweet on Tuesday.

She got the post-Memorial-Day week off to a racist start with a tweet describing Valerie Jarrett, a former adviser to President Barack Obama, as someone who looks like the "Muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby".

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

In a tweet penned to Valerie, she said: "I want to apologize to you".

ABC's decision to cancel "Roseanne" after star Roseanne Barr made a racist remark on Twitter will cost the broadcast network tens of millions of dollars in advertising revenue, according to multiple estimates.

As well as two further apologies to Jarrett, Barr released a statement on Twitter, which read: "I deeply regret my comments from late last night on Twitter". We applaud ABC for taking a stand against racism by canceling 'Roseanne.' We commend the network and ...

"I apologize [sic] to Valerie Jarrett and to all Americans".

"I apologize from the bottom of my heart and hope you can find it in your hearts to forgive me". This week's victor - and the latest to succumb to the temptation to say something stupid - is Rosanne Barr and her racist tweet about Valerie Jarrett.

That means the minimum Roseanne will now lose following her racist tweet is around £2m.

Mr Putin also congratulated Mr Assad on the "successes of the Syrian government's army in the fight against terrorist groups". The UN has hosted several rounds of peace talks in Geneva that have made no progress toward ending the conflict.

The host then showed off a series of clips from Roseanne without the titular lead, instead focusing on her husband, John Goodman's Dan.

"I am hurt, embarrassed, and disappointed".

"Roseanne's Twitter statement is abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values, and we have chose to cancel her show".

The tweet was deleted and the celebrity announced a hiatus from the social media platform.

In the early hours of Wednesday morning, she responded to those who had been jumping to her defence, urging them: "Guys I did something unforgiveable so do not defend me". It represented the work of hundreds of talented people.

"I'm fine", she said. I imagine George Soros's nephews are lovely people.

Barr's tweet was a reply to a tweet that accused Jarrett of helping to cover up alleged misdeeds by the Obama administration.

"#Rosanne is who she tells you she is with every comment and tweet".
