[Blind Gossip] The hit television reboot of Roseanne has been cancelled by ABC!
Lead actor Roseanne Barr posted a racist comment on social media about Valerie Jarrett, President Obama’s senior advisor. Here is a screenshot of the original thread in which her comment appeared:
Valerie Jarrett grew up in Iran and is African American.
The post was quickly followed by the resignation of consulting producer Wanda Sykes… public outcry over Roseanne’s remarks… the deletion of the original tweet by Roseanne… an apology by Roseanne… and the cancellation of the show by ABC’s Channing Dungey.
While the public will certainly focus on Roseanne’s comments, we found out that one cast member had a few comments of their own.
[They were] YELLING, “What the f*ck?! What the actual f*ck just happened?” [They] had been talking before about buying a new house and was totally counting on that paycheck.
Roseanne was the highest-rated and most-watched series of the broadcast season, eclipsing both NBC’s This Is Us and CBS’ Big Bang Theory. The cancellation of Roseanne puts approximately one hundred cast and crew members out of work.
