Wanda Sykes Quits ‘Roseanne’ After Star’s Twitter Tirade
Comedian Wanda Sykes, a consulting producer on the Roseanne revival, announced Tuesday on Twitter that she will not be returning to the show. Earlier Tuesday morning, star Roseanne Barr described former Obama aide Valerie Jarrett as the child of the “muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes” on her Twitter page. Barr has since deleted that tweet, apologized for it, and said she would quit Twitter. ABC said in a statement that it has canceled her show.
