Sashay the f*ck away.

Roseanne is over, just months after its reboot premiered.

ABC announced this afternoon they would be cancelling the sitcom, which was rebooted after 21 years to some of the highest ratings on network television.

The cancellation comes as a shock: the new season of Roseanne premiered just three months ago, and pre-production on another season to premiere this fall was already well underway.

"Roseanne's Twitter statement is abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values, and we have decided to cancel her show," said Channing Dungey, ABC's Entertainment president, in a statement.

Roseanne Barr had tweeted this morning calling former Obama aide Valerie Jarrett a racial slur:Capture3-6637

Roseanne cast member Sara Gilbert tweeted that Roseanne's words are "abhorrent and do not reflect the beliefs of our cast and crew or anyone associated with our show."
