After claiming she was going to leave Twitter Tuesday morning, Barr's very outspoken return later in the evening began with tweets apologizing to the show's "all liberal" writers and cast, and then two direct apologies tweeted at Jarrett.

"Roseanne's recent comments about Valerie Jarrett, and so much more, are abhorrent and do not reflect the beliefs of our cast and crew or anyone associated with our show", she tweeted.

"Roseanne's Twitter statement is abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values, and we have chose to cancel her show", ABC's president Channing Dungey said.

Valerie Jarrett, a onetime adviser to former President Barack Obama, wants to turn a racist tweet aimed at her by Roseanne Barr into "a teaching moment", she said. She also apologized to everyone who had lost their jobs on the show due to her "stupid tweet".

Jarrett, who was born in Iran to American parents and raised in the United States, had been the target of false allegations that she practiced Islam during her tenure in the Obama administration. I feel so empowered by @IAmWandaSykes, Channing Dungey and anyone at ABC standing up for morals and abuse of power. She also pushed the debunked conspiracy theory that businessman and philanthropist George Soros, who is Jewish, conspired with the Nazis. "Roseanne" averaged 23.2 million viewers, according to Nielsen, making it the most popular show of the year so far.
