"ABC canceling that program is sending a message that they're not going to tolerate it and this is what happens when you go to far," says Grace Temple Baptist Church Pastor, Grady Scott
Pastor Scott says, this tweet wasn't funny and people shouldn't be encouraged to do things that are like this. "sometimes people who are in positions like Roseanne and other positions like leadership have to be careful that what they say does not hurt. It's bad being offended but it's painful with your words."
The Tucson Jewish Community Center says their program is inclusive for all. "That was a decision that ABC made because of whatever business model that they had - we here want to have a community for all and that's probably what they're saying as well," says JCC CEO, Todd Rockeff.
Muslim Advocates say the cancellation was the right decision but they're calling out ABC saying they gave her a platform to begin with and they knew exactly who they were bringing on.
Stating Roseanne has a track record of bigotry to many groups including Muslims and LGBTQ community.
They say in quote, "While we are relieved by this decision and think it sends a strong message against bigotry, ABC's main mistake was elevating and validating her bigotry in the first place."
While Roseanne apologized in a tweet, "I am truly sorry for making a bad joke about her politics and her looks. i should have known better. forgive me-my joke was in bad taste."
I apologize to Valerie Jarrett and to all Americans. I am truly sorry for making a bad joke about her politics and her looks. I should have known better. Forgive me-my joke was in bad taste.
Roseanne was set to begin shooting Season 2 but production has been stopped.
