Fall from grace

After she left the show following her racist tweet in which she insinuated that Valerie Jarett, an African American government official, was ape-like, ABC canceled her show, Roseanne.

But, they finally agreed to bring it back on air by popular request – on the condition that Barr would no longer be on the show.

Enough is enough

Amid rising accusation that they made a rash decision to shelve Roseanne and its star actress, the network is finally addressing the sack.

Channing Dungey, president of ABC, told Deadline that they'd had a lot of instances where the actress had been offensive, but this time they decided "enough is enough."

Despite the network's clear stance, Barr's supporters continue in their believe that this was an overreaction. A few even claim this recent 'opening up' is a cheap move to drum up support for their spin-off show. Thoughts?
