So Roseanne referencing a movie title is racist. Lying dishonest soulless freaks from Planet of the Apes— Ted Nugent (@TedNugent) May 29, 2018
ABC's sudden decision to cancel its most popular TV show, Roseanne, following star Roseanne Barr's racist tweet from earlier today has been met with widespread support from the entertainment industry. But not from Ted Nugent.Barr drew heavy criticism for responding to a tweet about Valerie Jarrett, a former top aide to President Obama. "Muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby=vj," she wrote. Although she soon apologized "for making a bad joke" about Jarrett's "politics and her looks," ABC almost immediately canceled Roseanne. The long-running series had returned after an 21-year absence in March and quickly became the highest-rated and most-watched series of the broadcast season, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
