Top ABC brass may have acted too swiftly by pulling the plug on Roseanne – and they now fear the show’s replacement spin-off will flop without its star.

Two senior executives at the network have told DailyMailTV that firing the actress was a ‘knee-jerk’ reaction by ABC’s president and admitted that temporarily suspending Barr may have been a wiser decision.

The article goes on to state the following:

‘We didn’t think it through properly. What Roseanne did was wrong but we shouldn’t have rushed to fire her. It was almost a knee-jerk reaction by Ben [Sherwood] and Channing [Dungey] who should have launched an investigation,’ one insider said.

‘This would have given them more time to listen to the public, advertisers and cast members to determine the best decision.’

The highly-anticipated reboot of the popular 90s sitcom was axed in May, just three months into its return after Barr, 65, made a racist tweet about former Obama aide Valerie Jarrett.

Barr quickly came under fire by responding to a Twitter thread which mentioned Jarrett saying: ‘muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby= vj.’

ABC canceled the show and fired the actress just hours later and released a statement calling her comments ‘abhorrent’ and ‘repugnant.’

  1. The whole thing here is….it wasn’t a “racist” tweet, as many claimed….And saying a “knee jerk reaction” is an understatement!! Roseanne did not deserve what happened to her. There have been many other “hollywooders” who have said things much worse than that, including, but not limited to, threatening the very life of our POTUS!!! But because he is “an old white man” these nasty comments were basically all overlooked. What hypocrites we’ve got in the entertainment industry. I find it pathetic. They need to just keep quiet about their political leanings and stick to what they know…..we have all seen companies, businesses etc. lose business all because they decided to become political. What a stupid thing to do!!!
