"Today is one of the hardest in my life," series star Michael Fishman wrote in a note posted to Twitter.

"Roseanne’s recent comments about Valerie Jarrett, and so much more, are abhorrent and do not reflect the beliefs of our cast and crew or anyone associated with our show," said series star Sara Gilbert. "I am disappointed in her actions to say the least."

“On behalf of all the writers and producers, we worked incredibly hard to create an amazing show,” Helford says in a statement released through his agent.

“I was personally horrified and saddened by the comments and in no way do they reflect the values of the people who worked so hard to make this the iconic show that it is.”

"The terrible part is all of the talented innocent people who worked on that show now suffer because of this," Rhimes began in her Twitter statement."

"#notjustice But honestly she got what she deserved. As I tell my 4 year old, one makes a choice with one’s actions. Roseanne made a choice. A racist one. ABC made a choice. A human one."

"Roseanne was making boatloads of $ for @DisneyABCTV," said the Supernatural star.

"For them to cancel it because of Roseanne’s racist, xenophobic rants on twitter shows a great deal of corporate responsibility & just how powerful the public’s outrage can be! Keep raising your voices!"
