Roseanne Barr has been dropped by her agency.

"What she wrote is antithetical to our core values, both as individuals and as an agency. Consequently, we have notified her that we will not represent her."

"Effective immediately, Roseanne Barr is no longer a client."

Barr shocked the world with racist comments about Barack Obama's former advisor, Valerie Jarrett who is black, early on Tuesday morning.

“Muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby=vj,” Barr shared. “ISLAM is not a RACE, lefties. Islam includes EVERY RACE of people.”

With many calling for ABC to cancel the series as a result of her views, Barr issued an apology. 

"I apologize to Valerie Jarrett and to all Americans," she began in her apology.

"I am truly sorry for making a bad joke about her politics and her looks. I should have known better. Forgive me-my joke was in bad taste."

But ABC swung the ax just hours later. 

“Roseanne’s Twitter statement is abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values, and we have decided to cancel her show,” said ABC president, Channing Dungey in a statement on Tuesday.

Roseanne was a huge hit for ABC, emerging as the most watched series of the 2018-2018 season. 

It's still unclear what ABC plans to do with the Tuesday 8/7c slot in the fall given that Roseanne was scheduled to return in the fall.
