"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 told Fox News in a statement Tuesday.
Iger's statement came just a few minutes after ABC President Channing Dungey announced the rebooted sitcom was canceled in a statement calling Barr's tweets "abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values". This week she repeatedly attacked prominent Democrats. She also said she would leave Twitter following the comments. She replied to CNN reporter Andrew Kaczynski and said it was "a joke".
'I apologise. I am now leaving Twitter'.
She later apologized "for making a bad joke". Or every black parent I know who has a boy who has to sit down and have a conversation, "the talk" as we call it. "Forgive me- my joke was in bad taste". Barr later deleted it and said she was sorry.

"I'm fine", she added. That is a reference to George Soros, the billionaire who has helped fund progressive causes. Barr's Twitter account was still active as of noon ET on Tuesday.
Hulu announced on Tuesday that they will be standing by ABC and won't make episodes of the revamped sitcom available to watch. "Even in the Age of Trump, there are red lines that can never be crossed".

".@ABC, how desperate are you to profit from Roseanne's racism? I think we have a lot bigger things going on in the country right now, certainly, that the president is spending his time on". "This apology is meaningless".
