Roseanne Show writer, Wanda Sykes announced today, that she was quitting the show after Roseanne tweeted about Barack Obama’s sidekick, Valerie Jarrett, saying she was like the “Muslim Brotherhood and the Planet of the Apes.”
I will not be returning to @RoseanneOnABC.

Roseanne immediately apologized, and admitted she went too far:
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.

ABC’s Rober Iger tweeted that they cancelled her wildly popular show:
From Channing Dungey, President of ABC Entertainment: "Roseanne's Twitter statement is abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values, and we have decided to cancel her show."
There was only one thing to do here, and that was the right thing.

So, what was it exactly that offended Wanda Sykes so much? Was it the comment about the “Muslim Brotherhood” or the “Ape” comment? And what about Wanda Sykes remarks about Donald Trump after he won the election, that were so bad, the audience booed her off the stage?
During her “comedy” act, Wanda Sykes called President Trump an “orangutan” (an ape). She started by saying, “I can’t believe that Donald Trump won! I couldn’t believe that we elected an orangutan to run the country. I was like, ‘are you f*cking kidding me? They voted for an orangutan? This is ridiculous!'” Wanda Sykes’ disgusting trash talk about our president made the audience so upset, that she was eventually booed off the stage.
Sykes didn’t just call President Trump an “orangutan”, she called him a “racist, sexist, homophobic president.” When the audience began booing her, Sykes responded with pure class, telling the audience, “F*ck you mother f*ckers! F*ck all you all, and you and you and you!” The audience’s boos got louder and louder to the point that the “comedian” had to stop her act to try to prove her case to the audience who would have nothing to do with her lies.
Here’s an uncut clip from her very unpopular performance.
Is there anything funnier than an angry comedian?
