"Roseanne" costar John Goodman speaks out for the first time since ABC's cancelation of the hit sitcom, defending Roseanne Barr against allegations of racism; Jonathan Hunt reports from Los Angeles.

Roseanne Barr has revealed how her character will get killed in the upcoming spinoff of Roseanne - an opioid overdose.

Roseanne Barr has revealed how her character will die on The Conners. But hoping to prove that Roseanne isn't an indispensable part of the long-running series, liberals demanded that the series be re-configured without Barr's central character.

ABC Entertainment president Channing Dungey fired Barr for her malicious tweets suggesting that former Barack Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett is an ape. "I did that to everyone's feeling who were hurt or who misunderstood me", Barr responded.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, more than 200,000 people died in the USA from prescription opioid overdoses between 1999 and 2016. She also called the storyline of her death disrespectful to her faithful fans "who loved that family" and were invested in the Roseanne character.

Despite her stated intent for the tweet to be purely political, Barr was criticized for being racist.

The actress said that she's come to terms with the show moving on without her.

ABC had no comment on Barr's revelations when reached by TVLine. "I want to stay in a joyous, positive, happy place that I've worked my way to again in my life". It wasn't enough to just do what they did to me. "I think a lot of people have too". The Conners, without Barr, is set to premiere Tuesday, Oct. 16 at 8/7c.
