BREAKING: ABC has decided to cancel the reboot of Roseanne this morning after she sent out a racist tweet this morning targeted at a former Obama aide.
"Roseanne's Twitter statement is abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values, and we have decided to cancel her show." Said ABC.
Before ABC dropped the news of the cancellation, Wanda Sykes already backed out of the show for the same reason. And Roseanne Barr left Twitter.
Roseanne made huge ratings for ABC when it came back and was originally planned to come back for a second season. As of today, that is no longer happening.
