Roseanne Barr in a YouTube interview on Monday revealed how her character on the “Roseanne” spin-off show, “The Conners,” is removed from the storyline:

“Oh ya, they killed her,” she said. “They have her die of an overdose.”

She told Brandon Straka on his YouTube show “The Unsilent Majority” that while “there’s nothing I can do about it,” she feels the ending for her character is cruel and disrespectful to "the people who loved that family and that show." 

"The people who loved that family and that show, they had to cruelly insult them," said Barr. "And that’s what they chose to do. So, there’s nothing I can do about it. It’s done. It’s over. There’s no fight left."

Straka also said that Barr is welcome to say her piece if she would like and apologize for what transpired surrounding her firing from ABC.

Barr replied that she “already did that” and that she feels “it’s time for them to apologize.”

“I did that to everybody who’s feelings were hurt and who misunderstood me … It’s time for them to apologize to me,” she said.

"Now that I look back ... You know, I mean they begged me to come back," said Barr about the reboot. "And they kept saying, this time will be different and you’ll be given the respect you were denied. You’ll be given – we have your back."

"Let me tell ya, when you hear that term in Hollywood, run for your life," she said. 

ABC fired Barr and cancelled the reboot of her show, “Roseanne,” on May 29 after the actress posted a tweet involving former Obama administration official Valerie Jarrett.

"Muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby=vj,” the tweet read, almost instantaneously setting off a firestorm of criticism against the actress accusing her of being racist and bigoted.

She apologized for being “so unclear and stupid” and insisted she wrote the tweet about Jarrett not because she has an issue with her race, but because she doesn’t agree "with her politics.”
