Fox News on Wednesday admitted that Roseanne Barr's tweets attacking former Obama White House aide Valerie Jarrett were racist -- and many of its fans are not happy about it.
In a Thursday morning tweet, "Fox & Friends'" Twitter account wrote that, "Roseanne Barr apologizes for racist tweets after her ABC show is canceled."
