Today, the future ABC’s ‘Roseanne’ could be in jeopardy over some unfortunate remarks from Roseann Barr this morning on Twitter. While responding to a user, Barr would end up stating that she felt Barack Obama’s former advisor Valerie Jarrett was “if the muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby”. Immeditaley following, Barr would try to apologize for the remark but its damage looks to have already been done.
Wanda Sykes has now taken to her Twitter and shared she will no longer return to the show as it’s Consulting Producer. “I will not be returning to Roseanne on ABC”, she would message to her followers. Sykes did not elaborate on the exact reason for her decision but we’re pretty certain that Barr calling another woman of color ‘Planet Of The Apes’ was one of the main reasons. People have now took to social media to demad that Barr’s show should be pulled off the air. ABC has yet to publicly respond to the incident, we will keep you updated.
