After a string of success, writer and actress Roseanne Barr may have just had a big misstep.

ABC has announced that “Roseanne,” the reboot of the 90s-era hit sitcom starring Roseanne Barr, has been canceled.

This is extremely unfortunate. “Roseanne” ended its first season with record ratings. (RELATED: After the Season Finale, Roseanne’s Ratings Dominate All Other Television Shows). But now it looks like all of that is over now after Roseanne sent out a series of misinformed tweets.

In the first, the outspoken Trump advocate went after former Obama White House advisor Valerie Jarrett in a mean-spirited tweet. The tweet has since been deleted, but you can see it below:

There’s no mistaking it: that was a racist joke. It was cruel and unnecessary. Roseanne later defended herself by pointing out that Islam isn’t a race, even though I think most people took issue with her comparing Valerie Jarrett to an ape.

Roseanne has since apologized:

The only problem is that it gets worse. Around the same time, Roseanne accused Chelsea Clinton of being a nephew of George Soros:


Chelsea Clinton has since responded to Roseanne, explaining that she isn’t related to the Soros family:

Roseanne also apologized to Clinton. But it may have been too late. The criticism has been so bad that Roseanne was forced off Twitter:

We knew the fallout was going to be bad when Wanda Sykes, a fellow comedian and consulting producer, announced that she will no longer work on the show:

This is bad. Roseanne is in a bad spot. After such a successful season, she shouldn’t squander away her gift for entertaining people on cheap Twitter jokes.

And now she’s going to pay the price with her show being canceled.
