ABC canceled the relaunched "Roseanne" program on Tuesday amid an uproar over show lead Roseanne Barr’s racist tweet about longtime Barack Obama adviser and close friend Valerie Jarrett. Her remarks on Jarrett prompted a fresh round of calls for companies to drop their ads on the program.

Despite the uproar, over a dozen sponsors for "Roseanne" did not respond to requests for comment from POLITICO on whether they would discontinue ads on the program.
