ABC cancels '' Roseanne ' following star ' s racist tweet

New York City (Meredith/AP)– ABC canceled its hit reboot of “Roseanne” on Tuesday following star Roseanne Barr’s racist tweet that referred to former Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett as a product of the Muslim Brotherhood and the “Planet of the Apes.”

ABC Entertainment President Channing Dungey said the remark “is abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our worths.” Barr had apologized and erased her Monday-night tweet, calling it a “bad joke,” however the damage had currently been done.

Barr was likewise discarded by her skill company, ICM Partners.

The revival of the funny was a surprise smash for ABC, owned by the Walt Disney Co., and was depended on to lead the network’s fortunes next season. Its first brand-new episode in March was seen by more than 25 million individuals, with delayed viewing counted in, numbers that are significantly unusual in network television. ABC expected marketers to pay millions of dollars for the possibility to be seen throughout business breaks on tv’s most popular funny after “The Big Bang Theory.”

And it was all eliminated in a 53-character tweet.

President Trump responded to the program’s cancellation on Wednesday via Twitter. Bob Iger of ABC called Valerie Jarrett to let her know that “ABC does not tolerate remarks like those” made by Roseanne Barr. Gee, he never ever called President Donald J. Trump to apologize for the TERRIBLE statements made and stated about me on ABC. Possibly I simply didn’t get the call?

Among the few network reveals about a working-class household, “Roseanne” attracted significant attention upon its return when Barr’s character supported President Donald Trump. That made the program popular with conservative audiences, and Trump himself suggested the character’s backing had a lot to do with the show’s success.

Barr herself has a history of diving into political conspiracy theories on her Twitter feed, and she ended her Memorial Day weekend with a series of declarations. She slammed Democratic investor George Soros and tweeted that Chelsea Clinton was “Chelsea Soros Clinton,” suggesting she was wed to a nephew of Soros. Clinton herself remedied Barr online. Donald Trump Jr. retweeted two of Barr’s declarations about Soros, although not the remark about Jarrett.

Jarrett, who is black, was brought up in reaction to Twitter commentary that raised her name in relation to an Obama conspiracy theory. Barr tweeted: “muslim brotherhood & & world of the apes had a child=vj.”

She later tweeted an apology to Jarrett. “Forgive me,” she wrote. “My joke was in bad taste.”

Jarrett, who appeared at the taping of an MSNBC reveal about bigotry on Tuesday, said she hoped the event might be turned into a mentor moment.

“I’m great,” she stated. “I’m anxious about individuals out there who don’t have a circle of good friends and fans who come right to their defense.”

Barr was rapidly condemned. Comic Wanda Sykes, a “Roseanne” author, tweeted that she wouldn’t be going back to the program. Sara Gilbert, a co-star, likewise tweeted that the remark was abhorrent.

It was a quick decision at ABC for Dungey, who is the first African-American to work as programs chief for one of the significant broadcast networks, and her manager, network president Ben Sherwood. Disney president Robert Iger tweeted his approval: “There was just one thing to do here, and that was the best thing.”

3 weeks previously, “Roseanne” was the toast of ABC’s annual presentation of its programs prepares to marketers. Sherwood even joked then: “If anyone concerned play a drinking game based upon how many times we mention ‘Roseanne,’ you’re welcome.”

“Roseanne” earned an approximated $45 million in advertising earnings for ABC through its 9 episodes that started airing in March, according to Kantar Media. The firm estimates that the 13 episodes that had actually been purchased for next season would have generated as much as $60 million, with more through repeat episodes.

Hulu and the Laff comedy channel said Tuesday they were pulling re-runs of “Roseanne” from their schedules.

The cancellation has no clear precedent in television history, said David Bianculli, professor at Rowan University in New Jersey. The closest analogy is CBS pulling the plug on the Smothers Brothers variety show due to their anti-war views in the late 1960s and the same network not renewing “Lou Grant” at its peak, which star Ed Asner constantly contended was because of his outspoken political beliefs.

“Roseanne Barr’s comments were dreadful and reminiscent of dreadful time in our history when bigotry was not just appropriate however promoted by Hollywood,” stated Derrick Johnson, NAACP president and CEO. “We praise ABC for taking a stand versus bigotry by canceling ‘Roseanne.’ We applaud the network and … Dungey for placing the worths of diversity, inclusion and respect for mankind above scores.”

Barr got what she deserved, stated Shonda Rhimes, developer of hit ABC shows like “Grey’s Anatomy” and “Scandal.”

“As I inform my 4-year-old, one decides with one’s actions,” Rhimes tweeted. “Roseanne chose. A racist one. ABC decided. A human one.”

ICM dropped Barr within hours of the cancellation, saying in a statement that the agency was “considerably distressed by the disgraceful and undesirable” tweet. Bruce Helford, executive producer of “Roseanne,” said he was “personally horrified and distressed by the comments and in no other way do they show the values of individuals who worked so difficult to make this the iconic show that it is.”
