If you have any doubt that the surprise cancellation of the hit reboot “Roseanne” by ABC in the wake of the title star’s most recent racist tweets was approved at the highest levels of the corporate parent, don’t doubt it anymore.

Robert Iger, the CEO of the Walt Disney Company, has tweeted his agreement with the cancellation, even though it is likely to cost his company millions in profits.

The decision comes on the heels of Barr’s abhorrently racist comment on Twitter.

Iger is one of the most successful and highest paid CEO’s in America. Under his leadership, Disney has acquired Marvel, Pixar, and Lucasfilm, which has paid off with huge hits that fill theaters, play well on TV and provide new intellectual property for theme parks, merchandising and more.

Iger has even been touted as a future presidential candidate.

In the early days of the Trump administration, Iger sat on Trump’s Advisory Council,  but he quit as “a matter of principle” after Trump unilaterally withdrew from the Paris Climate Agreement.

Now he has shown a degree of moral courage unusual in the entertainment industry that speaks well of him and his company.
