Channing Dungey, president of ABC Entertainment, issued a statement Tuesday saying the show has been canceled in response to Roseanne Barr's tweets. 'Roseanne's Twitter statement is abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values, and we have decided to cancel her show,' the statement read. Barr made a racially-charged comment Tuesday, which has now been deleted, in response to a tweet that accused Valarie Jarrett of helping 'hide' misdeeds for the Obama administration. 'muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby=vj,” Barr wrote, using Jarrett's initials. Jarrett, 61, is African American and worked for Obama from 2009 to 2017. Hours later, Barr apologized for the tweet, describing it as 'a bad joke.'
