Hallelujah! ABC cancels Roseanne after she compares Obama advisor Valerie Jarrett to an ‘ape’

She went from the star of the highest rated sitcom in the country this morning to becoming yet another out of work actress by the afternoon.

Not only has ABC canceled “Roseanne,” but it is now being reported that the comedienne has been dropped from the talent agency, ICM Partners as well.

“We are all greatly distressed by the disgraceful and unacceptable tweet from Roseanne Barr this morning,” said ICM Partners in a statement Tuesday. “What she wrote is antithetical to our core values, both as individuals and as an agency.  Consequently, we have notified her that we will not represent her.  Effective immediately, Roseanne Barr is no longer a client.”

This afternoon news of the sitcom’s cancelation went viral along with a statement from ABC’s top brass.

“Roseanne’s Twitter statement is abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values, and we have decided to cancel her show,” ABC Entertainment president Channing Dungey said in a statement.

“There was only one thing to do here and that was the right thing,” said Bob Iger, ABC chairman and CEO of The Walt Disney Company.

This all started when the Trump supporter and star of ABC’s who fired off a racist tweet suggesting that former Barack Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett is an ape, reports BuzzFeed.

Barr attacked Jarrett, an African American woman who was born in Iran, in response to an article which unsubstantiated claims that former President Barack Obama spied on the President of France. Barr’s Muslim comment toward Jarrett follows the thought process of conservatives who tried to unsuccessfully assert that Jarrett was behind a secret push to make America a “more Islamic country.” According to the fact-checking website, Snopes, that claim is “false.”

Barr took to Twitter to apologize for the smear saying, “I apologize to Valerie Jarrett and to all Americans. I am truly sorry for making a bad joke about her politics and her looks. I should have known better. Forgive me-my joke was in bad taste.” She says she plans to now leave Twitter (one can only hope for good.)

The classic sitcom was set to air a 13-episodes this fall, but ABC has put the kibosh on the show (probably angering many of her co-stars and the folks who work behind-the-scenes.) This is a remarkable move by the network since the show finished last season as the No. 1 scripted primetime television series in the 18-49 demo, according to Nielsen.

Barr’s costar, actress Emma Kenney is the first to come out on Twitter and respond to the show’s cancelation.

Her racist past

As if Roseanne Barr’s repugnant Nazi pictures aren’t enough, the comedienne has taken offensive shots at more minorities, this time taking aim at ABC’s Black-ish and Fresh Off the Boat on her resuscitated MAGA-sitcom Roseanne.

Roseanne’s latest pot-shots just prove that she’s truly one of Trump’s “deplorables” both on air and off.

Black Twitter had enough to say and responded with swift condemnation.
