ABC canceled its hit sitcom "Roseanne" on Tuesday after the show's biggest star, Roseanne Barr, went on a racist Twitter rant.
ABC was planning to air a repeat of "Roseanne" Tuesday night, but a rerun of "The Middle" will air in its place.
"What she wrote is antithetical to our core values, both as individuals and as an agency," the agency said in a statement.
When asked why ABC ultimately decided to cancel the show, a Disney source said, "It's a question of right and wrong.
Congressman John Lewis thanked ABC, saying that "There is not any room in our society for racism or bigotry.".
"Some things apparently are more important than money," even for a network like ABC, "and that's heartening," CNN's Van Jones said on the air.
Social media lit up with criticism of both Barr and ABC, with some demanding a response from the broadcast network. »
