Johnny Galecki shared obscure photo amid 'Roseanne' cancellation scandal
Roseanne guest star Johnny Galecki responded recently to his co-star, Roseanne Barr’s, controversial tweet. Instead of writing anything he chose to show his thoughts with an image.
Galecki responded on Instagram with a photo that promotes racial diversity. Many co-stars have given their thoughts on Barr’s racist tweets.
This week, Barr posted a racist tweet. In the post, she claimed Jarrett was "a product of the Black Muslim Brotherhood and Planet of the Apes."
The ABC Roseanne revival series was unexpectedly canceled following Barr's racist comments toward Barack Obama's former aide Valerie Jarrett. Galecki’s photo was a collage of people from multiple racial backgrounds, mixed together to make one face.
The actor famously played David Healy during the series' original run. He and Darlene Conner (Sara Gilbert) were one of the main couples on the sitcom.
The star reprised his role for one episode during the revival season of the series. At the time he had promised to return for more episodes before the eleventh season was recently canceled.
Her co-stars quickly denounced her tweet. In response, ABC Entertainment President Channing Dungey announced the series' cancellation later on Tuesday.
‘Roseanne's Twitter statement is abhorrent, repugnant, and inconsistent with our values, and we have decided to cancel her show,’ Dungey's shared with the press. Disney CEO Bob Iger revealed that "There was only one thing to do here, and that was the right thing,"
Barr later apologized to Jarrett, and anyone else she had offended with her remarks. Since the cancellation, Barr has been dropped by ICM Partners.
Reruns of the original and revival series have been pulled from TVLand, Paramount Network, Laff, CMT, and Hulu.
