My guess is she did this on purpose. Easy way to get out of the contract. She has been around long enough to know that tweet was TV show suicide.

She cleaned up her Twitter feed before they started up this reboot of her show. She has been ramping up to this, and I guess they'd had enough.

Maybe they should consider killing her character off and replacing her with a non-nasal more talented comedienne. Since they had no trouble convincing the fans that bringing a dead character back is believable, anything goes and John Goodman's character can hook up with a new woman...the possibilities are endless.

Oh stop it now -- Bill Maher lost a show because of his political statements.

Kathy Griffin's mother got death threats in her retirem;ent home and Kathy lost a year of her career.

You say something stupid as a celebrity and you are going to pay a price.

Roseanne losing her show after calling Valerie Jarrett an ape is what Trump supporters mean when they say they are opposed to "PC" behavior. To Trump supporters, Roseanne's tweet should win a Pulitzer. Very sad that she would be so willing to hurt Wanda Sykes.

I hope her castmates and crew sue the pants off her.

Disney is VERY conservative. I'm surprised it took this long.

If all Roseanne had done was accuse Valerie Jarrett of bad makeup and lying, I am thinking she'd still have a TV show, too.

What about Dan and Jackie getting together? That would make it interesting.
