(FoxNews.com) “Roseanne” fans have called on HBO to fire “Real Time” host Bill Maher in response to the comedian’s jokes that President Trump was part orangutan.

ABC quickly canceled the successful “Roseanne” reboot Tuesday hours after its star, Roseanne Barr, posted a racist tweet about former President Obama’s aide Valerie Jarrett.

The tweet said Jarrett, who is African-American and born in Iran, is like the “Muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby.”

Barr apologized for the tweet before her show was canceled.

The next day, she appeared to blame the prescription pill Ambien for the tweet.

Following ABC’s announcement, Charlie Kirk, the founder of Turning Point USA, a right-wing nonprofit group, tweeted, “Wait, Bill Maher makes comparisons to Trump being a gorilla all the time? They get classified as ‘jokes’ by the media and he is of course allowed to keep his show and not have his life ruined. The difference? Bill Maher is a liberal, Roseanne is a free-thinking Trump supporter.”

However, some social media users pointed out that Trump sued Maher after he made a joke on Jay Leno’s late-night talk show that he would “offer $5 million to Donald Trump that he can donate to a charity of his choice” if he could prove his father was not an orangutan.

Maher joked Trump appeared to be an orangutan because they both had similar hair color, Reuters reported.
