Barr Unhappy With Character’s Fate on ‘The Conners’

October 17, 2018

The fate of Roseanne Barr‘s character on her show has been revealed, four months after ABC axed it over Barr’s controversial tweet about President Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett which some deemed racist.

At the beginning of Roseanne spinoff The Conners‘ premiere Tuesday night, the audience was informed that Barr’s outspoken matriarch character had died from an overdose of prescription drugs.

ABC had canceled the show in May after Barr tweeted that Valerie Jarrett looked like the “muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby.” It then decided to reboot the show without Barr.

After the show’s premiere, Barr tweeted: “I AIN’T DEAD, BITCHES!!!!”
