Barr made it clear she was not happy with her character's fate saying it was disrespectful to fans "who loved that family" on the original series. However, she never wanted her character to die from it. "I guess he'll be mopey and sad because his wife's dead", Goodman said of his character Dan. "It's done. It's over". Barr will retain rights to the Roseanne Conner character. Here's what she had to say. "I did that to everyone's feeling who were hurt or who misunderstood me", Barr responded.
She added that when she hit send on Twitter, "I just thought, 'Oh boy, this [tweet] is a good one".
Well, Roseanne Barr has already been fired by ABC, so it's not like they can do it again.
We also think it's cruel to tweet that a woman looks like she's half ape, but you know, we're amusing like that.
It's nearly as if the writers knew they would need an exit strategy should Barr tweet something hugely offensive and inappropriate.
Roseanne said she did not know the race of former Obama advisor Valerie Jarrett, and so didn't aim the tweet at her race, but at her politics.
The actress' upcoming trip will be the fourth time she's visited the nation. "I think a lot of people have too".
The Conners spinoff was announced by ABC after Barr agreed to relinquish any participation in it.
