ABC has canceled Roseanne following a Roseanne Barr tweet that suggested former Obama White House adviser Valerie Jarrett was a product of the Muslim Brotherhood and the "Planet of the Apes."

ABC’s president of entertainment Channing Dungey announced in a statement that Barr’s tweet is “inconsistent with our values, and we have decided to cancel her show.”

verBefore the announcement on Tuesday, Barr apologized to Jarrett for "making a bad joke about her politics and her looks." Barr deleted the tweet and she said she is leaving Twitter.

The rebooted sitcom was highly rated and successful when relaunched for the 2017 - 18 season. It was in production on it's second season when the cancellation was announced.
