One of the world's largest talent agencies has abandoned former client Roseanne Barr on the same day ABC cancelled the reboot of her Roseanne sitcom.
International Creative Management, ICM Partners, dropped the comedian on Tuesday, Variety reports.
“We are all greatly distressed by the disgraceful and unacceptable tweet from Roseanne Barr this morning,” ICM Partners said in a statement. “What she wrote is antithetical to our core values, both as individuals and as an agency."
"Consequently, we have notified her that we will not represent her," ICM Partners continued. "Effective immediately, Roseanne Barr is no longer a client."
