"Roseanne's Twitter statement is abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values, and we have made a decision to cancel her show", ABC Entertainment President Channing Dungey said. It's unclear what "statements" Trump is referencing in the tweet, but it likely relates to ABC News' coverage of his presidency.

In one tweet, Roseanne wrote, "muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby=vj". "I hope the good work done is not totally eclipsed by those abhorrent and offensive comments, and that Roseanne seeks the help she so clearly needs".

Hours after she vowed to quit Twitter, Roseanne resurfaced on the internet to insist that she had only made the racist "joke" about Obama advisor Valerie Jarrett because she was all loopy on Ambien. She also said she was leaving Twitter.
Trump reveled in the success of "Roseanne" after Barr's character in the show came out as a supporter of his presidency.
