The popular show, Roseanne, was canceled on Tuesday, after Roseanne Barr’s posted racists tweets. This isn’t the first time Barr has posted controversial tweets, however according to one source, “enough is enough”. And just hours after Barr’s tweets, the network canceled her show altogether.
On Monday night, Barr took to Twitter, where she attacked Valerie Jarrett, Chelsea Clinton and George Soros.
In her tweet against former Barack Obama Advisor, Valerie Jarrett, Barr wrote in a now-deleted post (@therealroseanne), “Muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby = vj.” Barr used Jarrett’s initials as a way to respond to a conspiracy theory concerning Obama’s administration.
In another now-deleted tweet, Barr attacked Chelsea Clinton, claiming that “she’s married to soros nephew,” making reference to the politics activist and business magnate, George Soros.
Barr’s costar, Sara Gilbert, spoke out against these tweets saying (@THEsaragilbert), “This is incredibly sad and difficult for all of us, as we’ve created a show that we believe in, are proud of, and that audiences love – one that is separate and apart form the opinions and words of one cast member.”
After ABC canceled this primetime show, Barr returned to Twitter after a brief hiatus saying, “guys I did something unforgivable [sic] so do not defend me. It was 2 in the morning and I was ambien-tweeting-it was memorial day too-i went 2 far & do not want it defended-it was egregious Indefensible. I made a mistake I wish I hadn’t but…don’t defend it please. ty.”
