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".Barr apologized and deleted her Monday-night tweet, calling it a "bad joke," but the damage had already been done.Late Tuesday, Barr tweeted a second apology to the writers and co-stars of the show and urging people not to feel sorry for her. She also highlighted supporters' tweets that criticized ABC and two of its personalities, Joy Behar and Keith Olbermann.One of the few network shows about a working-class family, "Roseanne" attracted considerable attention upon its return when Barr's character supported Trump.Comic Wanda Sykes, a "Roseanne" writer, tweeted that she wouldn't be returning to the show.Three weeks earlier, "Roseanne" was the toast of ABC's annual presentation of its programming plans to advertisers."Roseanne" earned an estimated $45 million in advertising revenue for ABC through its nine episodes that started airing in March, according to Kantar Media. Barr got what she deserved, said Shonda Rhimes, creator of hit ABC shows like "Grey's Anatomy" and "Scandal".
