ABC announced Tuesday that the network has chose to cancel "Roseanne", after a racist tweet by the show's star, Roseanne Barr.

ABC has said "enough is enough" following a series of racist tweets by Roseanne Barr this morning: Instead of moving forward with an 11th season of her highly-rated sitcom as originally planned, they have pulled the plug. She later apologized about the tweet, calling it a "joke" that was "in bad taste".

The axe fell on Roseanne despite the reboot of her sitcom being the highest rated show this season.

ROSEANNE Barr's sitcom Roseanne has been cancelled despite huge ratings over the comedian's racist tweets.

Roseanne has since said that she would be leaving Twitter altogether. She criticized Democratic financier George Soros and tweeted that Chelsea Clinton was "Chelsea Soros Clinton", implying she was married to a nephew of Soros.

Barr also retweeted numerous messages of support and defenses of her original tweet, including from conservative figures such as Jack Posobiec and Thomas Wictor, but later issued tweets asking her fans not to defend her.

The tweet in question referred to Jarrett as looking like the offspring of the "Muslim Brotherhood & Planet of the Apes".

"I apologize to Valerie Jarrett and to all Americans. I hope you can accept this honest apology!" she wrote in a tweet to Jarrett.

Barr was quickly condemned. Wanda Sykes, who was a consulting producer on the series, announced her immediate resignation from the show. Sara Gilbert, a co-star, also tweeted that the remark was abhorrent. On Tuesday, ABC entertainment president Channing Dungey released a statement in response to the situation.
