Roseanne Barr’s racially-charged Twitter tirade got her sitcom canceled, which may be why Michael B. Jordan considers her a villain.

The Black Panther actor won the best villain trophy at the MTV Movie & TV Awards on Monday night for his role as conflicted villain Erik Killmonger.

After picking up his award, Jordan took a swipe at Barr.

“I’m shocked that I won this award for best villain,” he quipped. “I thought for sure Roseanne had that in the bag.”

The audience got a good laugh before Jordan added: “It’s crazy.”

Last month ABC canceled Barr’s self-titled show, Roseanne, after the disgraced comedian posted a tweet comparing former Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett to a cross between the Muslim Brotherhood and the movie Planet of the Apes.

ABC is currently in talks to air a revamped version of the sitcom without Barr.
