Why Roseanne Barr initially thought her racist tweet was ‘a good one’

"Oh yeah, they killed her", Barr told Brandon Straka on his YouTube show Walk Away.

Barr, who was sacked from the ABC series in May after writing a racist tweet, told Brandon Straka on his YouTube show, Walk Away, that the writers of the ABC spinoff The Connors have decided how to get her character off the show.

"My experience with African-Americans is they're the most forgiving people in the world", she said.

Barr was not happy with the way her character was written off though, calling it an insult to fans of the show.

Despite her issues, she's resigned herself to her character's end.

"I wanted to show [opioid struggle] in the show", she said. "It's done. It's over".

Barr then added she was pretty unhappy with how the writers seemingly made a decision to take her out of the show.




Boy, ABC really wants Roseanne Barr dead - figuratively speaking.

"They had her die of an opium-or a opioid overdose".

Roseanne Barr has claimed she knows the fate of her character on the Roseanne spin-off The Conners, and it's not good. "But I was never going to have Roseanne die of an opioid overdose". "She should have died as a hero".

On May 29, ABC announced that it had cancelled Roseanne just hours after Barr apologised for published a racist tweet directed at a former aide to President Barack Obama.

Jarrett, who could not have been blamed for reading Barr for filth after what she did, took the high road when asked about the offensive tweets during a subsequent appearance on an MSNBC town hall.

The show will star John Goodman, Laurie Metcalf, Sara Gilbert, Lecy Goranson and Michael Fishman-basically, everyone but Roseanne Barr. And that's what they chose to do, so there's nothing I can do about it.

She also revealed she has "spies" in Hollywood who are watching out for her. "There's no fight left". We'll find out when The Conners premieres in October.
