Wanda Sykes has left Roseann’s team as a producing consultant as reported by TMZ and according to the tweet she posted on twitter. This comes after a statement Roseanne made about a former advisor to former President Barack Obama. The advisor is good friends with Wanda and has been since 2009. Roseanne’s comments had a racial tone and clearly offensive to Wanda along with another team member of Roseanne’s team.
I’m sure they are looking for a replacement for these two but going into season 2 of the show may make a difference on how well the show does.
While I like Roseanne Barr, I am appalled at her statements. Good luck to her for the show. I think she’s going to need it.
UPDATE: ABC has decided to cancel the show.
