ABC announced Tuesday that it has cancelled the Roseanne reboot after its star, Roseanne Barr, replied to a tweet with something that nobody in their right might would not consider to be racist.

The racist tweet was easy to spot. The context is a little weird.

"Muslim brotherhood & planet of the apps had a baby=vj" is what Barr replied in a series of other replies to a tweet that went from a fringe site reporting on a Wikileaks allegation that the CIA (under the Obama administration) had "spied on French presidential candidates." The tweet replies then mentioned longtime Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett, who was the "vj" in Barr's tweet.

Barr deleted that reply, and later issued an apology. (Which also was deleted.)

It remains to be seen what Barr finds fun in obviously racist statements like that. (Or why, in a later reply, she though that attacking Islam was any more appropriate.)

In any case, ABC figured out what to do with the latest incident in just a matter of hours.

And that's the end of the Roseanne reboot.

Co-star Sara Gilbert had some parting words for the show, echoed by writer Whitney Cummings:

And comedian Wanda Sykes, a producer on the reboot, announced before ABC announced the cancellation that she wouldn't be back.

Barr, for whom "outspoken" simply doesn't cut it, has been no stranger to controversy, dating back to the original Roseanne show in the 1980s, and she has been a fervent supporter of President Donald Trump.
