Simply hours after Roseanne Barr submitted a racist tweet about previous President Obama’s aide Valerie Jarrett, her wildly popular reboot associated with “Roseanne” was given the boot.

ABC Entertainment President  Channing Dungey said in a statement on Wednesday that the network would not be creating the show’s second season.

“Roseanne’s Tweets statement is abhorrent, repugnant plus inconsistent with our values, and we are determined to cancel her show, inch Dungey told Fox News.
