ABC Pulls Plug On Hit TV Show “Roseanne” Citing Barr’s Tweet About Valerie Jarrett

ABC announced that it was canceling its hit show “Roseanne” Tuesday afternoon. ABC president Channing Dungey announced the news in a statement calling Roseanne Barr’s Tweets “abhorrent” and “repugnant.”

This comes just hours after Barr went on a bizarre Twitter rant, calling former Obama advisor Valerie Jarrett a combination of “Planet of the Apes” and the “Muslim Brotherhood.”

Barr since deleted the tweet and apologized, saying the comments were made in “bad taste.”

Earlier on Tuesday, Barr accused activist billionaire George Soros of being a Nazi, and accused Chelsea Clinton of being in cahoots with him.

Wanda Sykes, a contributing producer, had announced her departure from the show just hours ago.
