'Roseanne' canceled by ABC after Barr tweet on Valerie Jarrett

WTF?! Rosanne Barr calls Valerie Jarrett a monkey and Black Twitter is reading her for filth

Roseanne Barr says she’s quitting Twitter after apologizing for racist tweet

Later Tuesday morning, Barr apologized and said her "bad joke" was in poor taste.

Barr tweeted the initials "vj" and the words: "Muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby".

Barr also apologized to Chelsea Clinton for a tweet for saying the former first daughter's middle name is Soros and she is Wednesday to a nephew of billionaire businessman George Soros whom Barr called a "racist" and "Nazi" in another tweet. Not long before the cancellation announcement was made public, the actress published a pair of tweets, one apologizing and stating she is leaving Twitter, another apologizing to Valerie Jarrett and "all Americans".

Earlier Tuesday, Roseanne Barr apologized after a freakish, racist Twitter rant, and then announced she's "now leaving Twitter". Ms. Barr also said she is leaving Twitter. Barr's Muslim comment toward Jarrett follows the thought process of conservatives who tried to unsuccessfully assert that Jarrett was behind a secret push to make America a "more Islamic country". She later replied in the comments that Clinton is "married to Soros nephew".

ABC had renewed "Roseanne" for another season and placed it at 8 p.m.
