Roseanne Canceled!

After the biggest comeback, and an almost automatic renewal, Roseanne has been canceled by ABC following the titular stars racist twitter “joke”.

Co-showrunner, and comedian, Whitney Cummings left the series recently, but this morning’s twitter tirade led to comedian and activist Wanda Sykes exiting the show as well.

According to TV Line, Barr’s TV daughter Sara Gilbert released a statement condemning the outburst, which was quickly followed by a statement from ABC President Channing Dungey: “Roseanne’s Twitter statement is abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values, and we have decided to cancel her show.”
