After a racist tweet this morning and a cancellation of her show in the afternoon, the firestorm over Roseanne Barr is still raging. There are endless hot takes on the rise, fall, and obliteration of the Trump-loving comedian, and here are some of the best reactions to ABC pulling the plug on the sitcom.
\u201cNobody could have possibly seen this coming. #RoseanneCancelled\u201d

Twitter uses commended ABC for drawing the line but wondered why it got into business with Roseanne (and her often-deranged ideology.)
\u201cMy actual face reading that headline #RoseanneCancelled\u201d
\u201cWe must not let #ABC off the hook because of their action. We all knew who #Roseanne was. Why did ABC give her a national platform? Why did ABC normalize her? Why did ABC choose to shelve a #Blackish episode while allowing her stuff to air? ABC owes us answers. #RoseanneCancelled\u201d
\u201cAnd never forget that Donald Trump called and congratulated Roseanne, the racist bigot, for her stupid ratings faster than he called and acknowledged James Shaw, Jr. for his heroism. #GoodByeRoseanne #RoseanneCancelled\u201d
\u201c#RoseanneCancelled should make us all think about what we allow ourselves to laugh at, to think is okay, which lines we are willing to cross. \n\nI refused to watch #Roseanne and said so in my TV column and explained all this as why.\n\nWe must hold ourselves accountable.\n\n@ABC & us.\u201d

\u201cABC was like, before you even get to the sponsors #roseannecancelled\u201d
Others just came to express their joy over the apparent demise of Roseanne's career.
\u201cRoseanne messed up white folks money by going off code with her racist bullhorn instead of relying on the time-honored dog whistle. Trust & believe she is done in show business. You went full-Nazi. Never go full-Nazi, Roseanne. #RoseanneCancelled\u201d
