ABC announced they have cancelled the Roseanne reboot immediately after the show's star Roseanne Barr made racially insensitive comments on twitter. 

In one of the tweets, she wrote, "Muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby=vj."Barr was responding to a comment about Valerie Jarrett, a top former aide to President Obama. She replied to CNN reporter Andrew Kaczynski and said it was "a joke."

She followed with an apology, and then said she was leaving Twitter.

ABC has not spoken further on the situation, other than to confirm the show has been cancelled.
