"Roseanne's Twitter statement is abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values, and we have chose to cancel her show", Dungey told Fox News.

Comedian Roseanne Barr says she accepts responsibility for a late-night tweet that cost her her job, agent and more Tuesday.

"I apologize. I am now leaving Twitter", Barr wrote Tuesday morning, though she quickly returned. "Hey guys, don't defend me.it's sweet of you 2 try, but.losing my show is 0 compared 2 being labelled a racist over one tweet-that I regret even more", she wrote in a replacement tweet. "It just shocked me a bit, but I indeed fucked up".

An attempted apology and promise to leave Twitter, which she has failed to do, were not enough to save the show. "I made a mistake I wish I hadn't".

"I want to mention Bob Iger, who is the CEO of Disney, called me before the announcement", Jarrett, 61, said.

"You fought, built, and designed Roseanne for inclusiveness", Fishman responded to Barr Wednesday.

Alberta Premier Rachel Notley and British Columbia Premier John Horgan have been at odds over the pipeline. The bill, introduced by Alberta Senator Doug Black in February, passed third reading on Tuesday.

ABC Entertainment's president announced the network was pulling the plug after Barr tweeted that Jarrett, who now serves on several corporate boards and is a senior fellow at the University of Chicago Law School, is the product of the "muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes".

Jarrett addressed the controversy during an MSNBC town hall on racism that had already been scheduled Tuesday night. Prior to its cancelation yesterday, Roseanne was ABC's best-performing series.

"I wrote on the original "Roseanne" where we used to denounce nativism, racism & homophobia". It was a reference to Valerie Jarrett, longtime adviser to President Obama, who's African-American. "Nice!" Sara tweeted that she was "disappointed" in her onscreen mom and blasted Roseanne's comments as "abhorrent".

"Wow! unreal", Barr tweeted back.

During this all, Barr also retweeted a number of offensive posts in hopes of showing that it was her politics that ultimately led to her termination.

The current "Roseanne" was ABC's biggest hit of the 2017-18 season, drawing an average 18.7 million viewers, second only to CBS sitcom "The Big Bang Theory", according to Nielsen data through May 20.
