Roseanne Barr has been dropped by her representing agency ICM Partners following her Twitter meltdown on Tuesday.

“We are all greatly distressed by the disgraceful and unacceptable tweet from Roseanne Barr this morning. What she wrote is antithetical to our core values, both as individuals and as an agency,” ICM wrote in an internal statement to the company. “Consequently, we have notified her that we will not represent her. Effective immediately, Roseanne Barr is no longer a client.”

Earlier on Tuesday morning, Roseanne went on a Twitter storm, calling former Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett a combination of “Planet of the Apes” and the Muslim Brotherhood, and accusing Chelsea Clinton and George Soros of being in cahoots.

Roseanne has since apologized for her comments and removed her tweet about Jarrett, but the damage was already done. ABC Entertainment cancelled the show just hours later, calling her comments “abhorrent,” and “repugnant.”
