Comedian Roseanne Barr is back talking about the demise of her hit ABC sitcom, Roseanne, and now she is saying that co-star Sara Gilbert is the one behind the destruction of the show.
According to Fox News:
However, in a recent interview with The Washington Post, Barr seems to have changed her tune. She notes that a tweet from Gilbert that came 27 minutes before the cancellation of the show was announced still sticks with her as what “destroyed” everything.
“Roseanne’s recent comments about Valerie Jarrett, and so much more, are abhorrent and do not reflect the beliefs of our cast and crew or anyone associated with our show. I am disappointed in her actions to say the least,” Gilbert’s tweet at the time read.
Roseanne was talking about Gilbert’s May 29 tweet:
Roseanne’s recent comments about Valerie Jarrett, and so much more, are abhorrent and do not reflect the beliefs of our cast and crew or anyone associated with our show. I am disappointed in her actions to say the least.

That, Barr said, destroyed her life.
“She destroyed the show and my life with that tweet,” Barr told the outlet in a recent interview, right before making a “Silence of the Lambs” reference about her former co-star. “She will never get enough until she consumes my liver with a fine Chianti.”
“While I’m extremely disappointed and heartbroken over the dissolution of the original show, she will always be family, and I will always love Roseanne,” Barr added.
Barr also said she was lied to about how the replacement show, The Conners was going to be created.
Barr also revealed that she still has an ax to grind with regard to how “The Conners” came about. She claimed to the outlet that she was told by the show’s executive producer, Tom Werner, that she would be a hero if she signed over her rights to the characters and saved the jobs of the people who would be fired in the wake of the series revival’s cancellation. She claims he told her he would go out and say she’s not a racist and even keep the door open for her to return someday.
However, those hopes were dashed when the Roseanne character was killed off by way of an opioid overdose in the first episode of the spinoff.
The left totally destroyed Roseanne even as other people at the time were being let off the hook all over the place.
Liberals are evil.
