Hollywood reacts to ABC cancelling 'Roseanne' amid racist tweets


Despite soaring ratings, ABC canceled the revival of the hit show "Roseanne" after Roseanne Barr tweeted racist insults about former Obama aide Valerie Jarrett. After comparing Jarrett to a baby conceived between "Muslim Brotherhood and Planet of the Apes," the 65-year-old actress issued an apology and begged for forgiveness.

Well, Hollywood is not having it and made a bold statement with the hashtag #FireRoseanne. Network executive, Channing Dungey has been praised for taking action to cancel the show.

Actress Alyssa Milano took to Twitter to thank ABC. "Thank you, @ABCNetwork for doing the right thing and for showing people that bigotry and racism has consequences. Now, if you could only cancel our President for the same reason. #RoseanneBarred"

Shonda Rhimes, the producer and writer of hit ABC shows "Grey's Anatomy" and "Scandal" tweeted that while Roseanne made a "racist choice", ABC made a "human choice".
