ABC announced Tuesday afternoon that it was cancelling “Roseanne” hours after the star of the show made a controversial remark about a former adviser to President Obama via Twitter.

“Muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby=vj,” Barr tweeted, in reference to Valerie Jarrett.

“Roseanne’s Twitter statement is abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values, and we have decided to cancel her show,” read a statement Tuesday from ABC Entertainment President Channing Dungey.

Barr later apologized and deleted the offending tweet.
