The reboot of the show Roseanne was canceled Tuesday, hours after Roseanne Bar tweeted about a former presidential adviser to President Barack Obama being the offspring of an Islamic group and a character from “Planet of the Apes.”
“Roseanne’s Twitter statement is abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values, and we have decided to cancel her show,” stated Channing Dungey, the president of ABC Entertainment, in a statement.
ABC television group and ABC News are both owned by Disney.
In a tweet, Bob Iger, chairman and CEO of Disney, said there was only one choice.
Her agency ICM has also dropped her.
