The recent ABC reboot of Roseanne has been a smash-hit, but like the woman in the title, it's also been controversial at times. Today it's over. Following a racist, since-deleted tweet in which Roseanne Barr compared Valerie Jarrett, a former adviser to President Barack Obama, to the offspring of the "Muslim Brotherhood and Planet of the Apes," ABC pulled the plug on the show. In an email sent out to media this morning, Channing Dungey, President of ABC Entertainment said: "Roseanne's Twitter statement is abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values, and we have decided to cancel her show."
